This blog is just about my life and mostly revolves around my son, Jamie. This blog is a combination of everything, whether it may be a new recipe I tried, a good freebie I found, something funny Jamie said, or feelings I'm having about life in general. There's little rhyme or reason. I'll never win any blogging awards, but I enjoy writing about our lives and I mostly do it for my son. It's so easy to forget moments over the years. I've got all these little tidbits of our life in print and I hope that someday Jamie can enjoy them.

I called this blog Mother of Life, Mother of Loss because of my issues with pregnancy loss and the joy of finally bringing this wonderful person into the world. Truly, I feel the pains of loss, but you won't see too much of that here. I am blessed and I am, above all else, a mother of life.

After all the years of infertility and loss, Matthew and I were blessed with a surprise pregnancy. We were pregnant with twins, but unfortunately, Baby A could not stay with us. Baby B grew into a healthy and happy baby girl that we named Bella Marie. We are so blessed to have two beautiful children.

Noodleboro Fun

When I was at Walmart about a month ago they had a few of Hasbro's Noodleboro games on sale. We've been playing Noodleboro Fun Park all afternoon. It really is a lot of fun. I can't believe I got this game for a mere $3.50!

This is a sharing game. There are four carnival activities. You roll a big di to select which one you will play. When you are able to accomplish the activity you win a prize. The point is to get as many prizes as you can so when you get duplicate prizes you can share them and earn stars. This is really an "everybody is a winner" kind of game.

The Noodleboro Pizza Palace game is a very cute memory/listening game. The customer (me) orders what they want on their pizza and shows the pizza maker(s) the cards depicting their toppings. You can make it really simple with just three toppings, or you can make it more difficult and choose more. Once you place your order, turn the cards over and see if your little pizza maker can remember what toppings go on your pizza. This game adds a bit of silliness by having toppings that include items like shoes, but don't worry, you can still get peperoni with green peppers and onions! I got this game for a whopping $3.00!
