Remotes, Fans, and Baby Doll Head

Little Q is a mess. A hilarious, goofy, little mess! If I could capture pictures or videos of everything he does, we’d be rich. Any time he notices our phones are out, our tot wants to see himself in it then hold it with both hands so it’s unusable. Last night I opened a game on my phone since my husband and I barely had … Continue reading Remotes, Fans, and Baby Doll Head

Christmas cards sent, check. Buy stocking stuffers, somewhat checked. Figure out what we’re doing for little Q’s birthday a few days later, kind of checked. So on and so on. Then realized … Continue reading Christmas Spirit

Holiday Traditions

Santa, trees, and elves! Lights, music, and food! Establishing traditions while little Q’s a baby seems like the most appropriate time, even though I’m certain we’ll add to over the years. Q saw Santa for the first time this weekend and we are planning to take their picture together soon. To begin with, we had to point Santa out to him and the look on his face was … Continue reading Holiday Traditions

It can be traumatic and taxing, especially for those without family, have depression, social anxiety, family drama, various religious … Continue reading Holiday Kindness

National Adoption Month – Our Adoption Story

Children are amazing, truthful, funny, intelligent, and so full of energy. I love kids! I’d like to share our adoption journey in the hopes it may help others who are possibly pursuing that option. It takes a great deal of work, makes you think about different circumstances, and situations, but is absolutely worth every second of stress and worry. My little twist is that I … Continue reading National Adoption Month – Our Adoption Story
