*Stepping on my soapbox* Warning – may be TMI for some!

K, stepping onto my soapbox for a minute.

This post will talk about breastfeeding. If you don’t like to hear about that…stop reading now.

Breastfeeding is a commitment. In the first few weeks, it’s very difficult on the mom, sometimes the baby, and you may have to avoid certain foods (like me – no […]

Six months old.

So as I sit here, I am dumbfounded.  How in the world is AGK six months old?  Half a year has passed since we met him after 31 glorious hours of labor?  Sometimes, it seems like it’s been that long, especially a day like today, where I was up 3x from 12midnight to 7am, […]

Life with boys. And ASD. And being a WAHM.

So…I said I’d be updating my blog – and I’ve obviously NOT gotten around to that.  It’s almost March and it’s only my second post of the year.  I think I know why.

I have three boys under 4.

I am running a successful photography biz.

I am feeding another human being.

I have […]

Fall is almost here? Where did summer go?

We had a fantastic summer.  I was so busy with the boys.  Last summer, it was difficult for me, having a new baby and a toddler, but this summer, we made the most of it!

Highlights?

We went on lots of playdates! Nicholas had gymnastics class at Bounce for 10 weeks! Christopher learned to […]

2009 Revisited...and what's on tap for 2010

The rules: Post the first sentence of the first blog entry for every month of 2009. My comments are after each one! January: Mmm, best tasting ‘medicine’ I’ve ever had! So…I’m sitting here ENJOYING my first glass of wine in a VERY long time.  Remember, I was still nursing Nicholas when I got pg with […]

Where to start? So behind on my blogging!

I'll start by saying that I can hardly believe that it's already the 22nd of October.  Having two under two certainly makes time feel like it's ticking by even FASTER than it felt before.

Updates on Christopher:

Christopher's six-month/half birthday came and went…at the end of last month.  He'll be seven months old […]

Walk for Food Allergy, Detroit MI

As you probably know if you're a follower of this blog, my oldest son, Nicholas, has a severe food allergy – to eggs.

In July 2008, I joined FAAN (Food Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network) in order to better educate myself, and to receive info about Food Allergies, such as alerts/recalls.

On Saturday, October 3, […]

Top 10 Signs that you’re a parent of a child with food allergies…

This was shared by a friend of mine from Scotland…interesting how it doesn't matter *which* side of the pond you are…food allergies are the same no matter what.

So this is for all my friends that have kiddos with food allergies…and for the ones without, so that they can see what we have to […]

Having a food allergy is no laughing matter (Part I)

In my last post, I mentioned that Nicholas had an allergic rxn to something when we were dining out at Leo's.  This was likely due to cross-contamination during the prep of some salad ingredients, since we are VERY careful about what we order.

Having worked in food service for […]
