Ode To Motherhood

Welcome to Motherhood...





Yep, this is my life now.

They say that you forget all the bad things about being pregnant once you hold your little one for the first time. I can tell you that is false. I did melt and I did get emotional, but I haven't forgotten all the bad pregnancy stuff. Nope, not this girl.

Was my little princess worth it?

You bet she was. Every inch of her.

And so has begun my life of sleepless nights and confused fussy baby moments. I am slowly learning that sometimes all she wants is cuddles and reassurance. For the longest time I never wanted kids. Then, I met the right guy and we got married. He has changed my life in so many ways and now we're parents. I still can't believe it when I look at her.

I'm a mom.

He's a dad.

She's ours.

Pregnancy sucked. She was worth it a hundred times over. Being a new mom is even harder than carrying her for nine months. Here are some things my newborn has taught me:

1. Always change diapers with your mouth closed. Yes, even if you have a girl.

2. It is possible to eat and poop at the same time. My little one is a master!

3. Burping really means projectile vomit. Follow step one and keep your mouth closed.

4. Spit up in your hair and on your clothes is your new norm.

5. What is a hot meal?

6. What is a shower?

7. Sleep when they sleep.

8. There are many shades of poop.

9. Diapers do fail...

10. It is possible to sleep standing up.

Let's get real, being a new parent is hard!

Hiatus Over & Why I Was Gone So Long

I am going to sum up my hiatus with one adorable picture:

No, I wasn't just distracted by his cuteness. This little dude suffered a terrible spinal injury while being micro-chipped. No one was at fault. The accident was simply a freak accident. Tragic, but rare and totally a freak thing. Surgery was done and I can say he is recovering well. But, his healing process is a long one and I have never worked with or rehabilitated a partially paralyzed animal before. This is a first for me and I am learning so much.  My shelter is so lucky to have such an amazing and talented vet staff.

I also want to thank the human mom of Waverly McTinybeans for all her advice and taking the time to give it. I know she is a super busy lady and I appreciated every tip.

I have spoken to multiple vets, RVT's and watched every youtube video I could find to help give this guy the best physical therapy I am able. He starts acupuncture sessions next week and little by little he makes progress. His left si…

#Writemotivation Week 1 Update

It is that time again! I missed March =(, but I am back with a vengeance for May! Here are my goals for this month:


Wrapping Up Write Motivation

Write Motivation goals:
1. Line by line edit third Nether Book.(Finished). 2. Get third Nether Book sent off to editor. (Finished). 3. Write another 20k on NA sci/fi  (not happening this month) 4. Blog at least twice a week. (I did my best). 5. Comment on more blogs. (FAIL)!
All in all I feel accomplished. I am super fail at commenting on blogs. However, I want all of you to know I do read them. It is part of my daily routine (usually while eating breakfast). So just know you've officially been stalked and I love you!
My biggest goal was to get the third Nether book off to the editor and ready for publishing in late June or early July. I succeeded in that and I'm very happy about it! What's up next? I won't lie. I have no hard deadlines until 2014. I am taking the rest of the year off to just write casually before and after my baby girl is born. When I have time, feel inspired, or need to stay sane. It's a weird feeling not having a pressing deadline. The sense of freedo…
