I hope my child looks back on today, and remembers a Mum who had time to play
There will be years for cleaning and cooking, but children grow up when we are not looking
Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow, cause babies grow fast, much to our sorrow
So settle down cobwebs, dust go to sleep, I'm cuddling my baby, and babies don't keep
(Song for a Fifth Child)

Back to Blogging...

Where have I been??
Puking my brains out...I wish I were kidding.  I mentioned many moons ago that June Bug was going to be a big brother and that put blogging on the back burner. Morning sickness came on strong at 6 weeks and didn't chose to depart my entire pregnancy. Luckily I stopped throwing up around 34week.  Only to continue puking for 18 hours after delivery.  Mama Bug + Anesthesia= A Hot Mess.

June Bug still thinks the toilet is for puking...so much for potty training early, he'd rather open the lid and pretend to gag. Awesome.

As for little one #2, we were what people call "Team Green" aka we didn't know the sex of the baby.  We did have an ultrasound tech write it down on a card, but we never opened it. Which was shockingly easy to wait it out.

Our team of doctors/nurses knew we didn't know and held up the little one after birth and let Daddy Bug share the news. The look on his face was priceless as he exclaimed "It's a girl!!! It's a girl right???"  To which a nurse replied, "yep, I think we can confirm that."

So June Bug is joined by our little Lady Bug (who was not so little compared to her brother at a 1/2lb bigger and a full inch longer).  She was a lot of baby for this little mama. Thanks to my favorite soccer mom for inspiring her blog name :-)

And now begin the trials and tribulations of Two under Two!!! June Bug was more interested in the drug scanner than his new sister --------->
And has on several occasions said "baby go". 


  1. Wow, no shout out to the guy who supplied the other X chromosone? :)

    That is one beautiful family!

  2. So good to have you back to blogging!!
    Love the newsy bits and the humor.
    You will do great:)
