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.

A Snafu: Kindergarten Enrollment

It's almost time for Kindergarten registration. I can hardly believe it. He's just a baby... isn't he?

Registration is at the end of April, but I've already run into the first registration snafu. His school says, and I quote, "STUDENTS ENTERING KINDERGARTEN MUST HAVE A PHYSICAL AFTER JANUARY 1 OF THE YEAR THEY REGISTER." I knew that getting a health exam this quickly would be difficult because they schedule them many months in advance. I schedule Jamie's a year in advance. I thought the pediatrician's office would probably be aware of this rule. Surely they've run into it before even though they are not in our town, they are close and surely have plenty of kids in our school district. Apparently not.

The scheduling desk said that they could not schedule Jamie an appointment this close to his last one (which was in October). They said insurance would not allow it. It had to be a full year. I'm not sure what I'm supposed to do here. Am I going to have to pay for this out of pocket?

I put a call into the school, but it was late and the person I needed to speak with was already gone for the day. I left a message on her voice mail to call me with a brief explanation of the issue. Hopefully there is a way to work this out without me having to dish out a few hundred dollars.
