At the End of a Well-Traveled Road

This post was written on January 23, 2015. Well, dear friends, it’s officially time to call the game.  As I’ve written about here and here, I really, really wanted to have a VBAC. At 39 weeks, with no dilation in site, I was discouraged but I still had hope that in the next couple of […]

Three Under Three

We are so excited about this little bit that is joining our family in a few months but yesterday, I may have had a wee panic attack about having three kids under two years old.  Granted, the older two will only be under two for a couple of months, but I’m still terrified of managing […]
