I am in the throws of my first and only child free weekend all summer. My daughter’s been home with me since June. Just about everywhere I went, she went. This Labor Day weekend, her grandmother took mercy on my soul and took her out of town. Continue reading
Since I’ve started my own business, I figured as I lead up to the launch of that part of my site – I would start this series of Mommie Musings. These are just random things that I think about in my day to day dealings of being a mom and some of the reflections that I often have. Some may be funny, some may be thought provoking … I hope that they are all relatable.
One of the things that plagues women during child birth, are complications during pregnancy. My issue was preeclampsia. So what is it?
According to the American Pregnancy association – Preeclampsia is a condition that occurs only during pregnancy. Continue reading
So I have been a little MIA for a couple of weeks – with good reason.
I unexpectedly have the opportunity to be home with my daughter full time with a further opportunity to figure out what I am actually supposed to be doing with my life. The one thing that I do know is what I am NOT supposed to be doing. Continue reading
Aside from my daughter having glasses, she has another minor condition that has gotten better over time. Part of her being born prematurely, she ended up with a breathing condition called Tracheomalacia. In a newborn, this occurs when the cartilage in the windpipe has not developed properly.

Are you confused? Don’t be.

I wish that I wasn’t so enthralled in being a mother when you first posted the statue, and although you have since took it down due to the back slash of social media – this mother is letting you know ….
I have time today.
Lately, my daughter (thanks to her dad) has become engrossed in female super heroes. Batgirl, Super Girl, and of course Wonder Woman.
In my opinion, and possibly the opinion of any mother that has had a preemie, these little warriors are Super Heroes all on their own. I am definitely an introvert – for many reasons. Whether it is self esteem, constantly feeling misunderstood, or even when I am in my zone – that little girl saves the day at any given time. Continue reading
