Bedroom Makeover For My 9 Year Old

This weekend my son went to stay with his aunt, uncle and baby cousin a few hours away.  It is the longest that he has ever been away from home, his family and his own bed.  From the little that I've spoken with him since he left I've been able to find out that yes he was a little homesick at first, but that he was having a blast. But, since he's been gone now for 5 days (and nights) his dad and I decided it was time for a bedroom … [Read more...]

It's getting closer....I'm only 6 weeks and 2 days away from my due date. My belly is HUGE! I'm getting to the point where I just want baby to arrive. I can't sleep at night (natures way of preparing me I guess) I have heartburn like mad...I can't eat or drink anything acidic or I pay for it for hours. I'm constantly thirsty and that doesn't help with sleeping at all! I'm up at least 4 times per night now. But, things are coming along. My … [Read more...]
