It finally happened

It finally happened

I am so relieved right now. Something I have been dreading since March 2012 happened today and I was able to keep it together. At the grocery store tonight after work I ran into a woman who worked at the birth center when I had my son. She was not at my son’s birth. In … Continue reading

Focusing on what is

Focusing on what is

We got together with the vegan MeetUp group tonight and the “vegan baby” was show stopper yet again. While the Little Guy and I were stilling with one of the event organizers, she asked me if my husband and I wanted more children. The question is coming more and more as our son grows. “We … Continue reading

Out and about

Out and about

The last few days have been busy in the best kind of way. On Sunday, we took the Little Guy to see a soccer game. We saw the KU women’s soccer team host the University of Nebraska-Omaha. My husband went to school at UNO and worked as both a student worker and professional sports information … Continue reading

Playtime

Playtime

This is my favorite time of year. The marching band is practicing all over campus, everything looks gorgeous, it even feels like fall here this week. AWESOME! I’m peppy — really peppy, like I used to be. During work today I got to take time to take all of that in. Last year I didn’t … Continue reading

Wisdom (teeth)

Wisdom (teeth)

My wisdom teeth are coming out on Friday. Yes, I am a medical freak of nature. I am 32 years old and my wisdom teeth are still impacted. The three of them that exist are anyway. So, at 8 a.m. Friday I will have them surgically extracted. I met with the oral surgeon recently about … Continue reading

Our vegan baby

Our vegan baby

We attended our third Meetup group meeting tonight. The group is a vegetarian/vegan/raw potluck and it has been great to meet other vegans in our community. Each time we’ve gone, someone has been absolutely taken with our “vegan baby.” I’m not talking about the standard “What a cute baby” type stuff. I’m talking about, “Oh, … Continue reading

A good day with the stroller

A good day with the stroller

The three of us are pretty lucky. Even though it rained some and my husband had to work on Saturday night, we had a darn good weekend. Hopefully, some of it will stick with me for awhile. On Saturday, when the Little Guy and I were home on our own. We read a ton of … Continue reading

Happy half-birthday, Son

Happy half-birthday, Son

My son is 18 months old! I will forever know the birthday of the Prince of Cambridge because my little guy celebrated his half-birthday at the same time. We got to the birth center before the sun came up that morning, just like Kate and Will. Our little guy took his first breath at 4:58 … Continue reading

Unintended break

Unintended break

The last 44 days have been a whirlwind. I can’t believe so much time passed without the time to post. Until recently, the reality of what we had to tackle this summer truly escaped me. I hadn’t counted on the intensity of a summer graduate-level course. I learned a great deal in the eight-week class … Continue reading

Homework assignment

At therapy last week I got a homework assignment: Write a letter to yourself, from your pelvis. Maybe this sounds crazy, she said, and you don’t have to agree. But what do you think of that? Here’s the kicker: I have to read it aloud at my next appointment. I have to put it on … Continue reading
