Is It Really February 11?

I guess it is! Today is my hubby’s birthday, and my Dad & Stepmom left town. My Mom agreed to stay (up all night) with the kiddo, so we’re having an impromptu “couple” night! All night! We might sleep until noon! Uninterrupted! Last night the kiddo was up from 2:30 until 6:00. I had a… Continue reading Is It Really February 11?

Where’s the Line?

I’m confused about the privacy issue when it comes to blogging. I have friends who post their names, their kiddos’ names, their hometowns, their jobs and pictures of all of the above.

Our air conditioner bit the dust and it’s over 80 degrees in our house…plus it’s really humid outside (and over 90 degrees, even now at 8pm!). We don’t know if… Continue reading Calling Experienced Mommas!

Thanks, Questions and Musings…

First, I have to say thanks to DINA who posted a comment on my last post. She’s new to my blog, but she left wonderfully helpful info. However, I don’t know what “pink lotion” is that she uses for her son’s hair. And I can’t seem to find a way to track back to her… Continue reading Thanks, Questions and Musings…

Communicating with Birth Mom

We got our second letter yesterday from S, our Birth Mother. It was a beautiful letter. See, there are circumstances surrounding S’s life that make it possible for us to communicate in exactly one way: letters written, sent to the lawyer and then mailed to us from the law offices. It’s kind of quaint, kind… Continue reading Communicating with Birth Mom
