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.

We were on our way home and Bella just would not stop crying.  Jamie was whining about the noise while eating the skittles we had shamefully bribed him with moments early at the store.  I asked him what he thought she was crying for.  He said, "Maybe she wants skittles."

Hey there!
I came across your Kidisms posts and thought you might be interested in - I put together the site after the majority of my friends started having children. It was the only nerdy thing I could do to contribute! It's a way for them to have a record of all the classic things kids say and do, and allow them to share them all with the rest of us. Hope you enjoy.

Happy Holidays!
