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!

#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…

Should I Get An Exotic Cat Breed?

He's gorgeous, isn't he? Loki is my 4.5 year old Bengal and I can tell you he is a lot of work, but I knew that going in before I got him. I did endless hours of research on the breed. Talked with multiple breeders that were familiar with their genetic make up and behaviors. I knew he would require a lot and even though I prepared myself, I was still blown away by how much of commitment these breeds are.

All exotic cat breeds require a lot of time and tons of training for both human and cat. Although, even with the training your exotic cat may still not listen or act out. Remember, these cats are breed down the line starting with their exotic father. This means they do still have wild tendencies depending on the filial generation they fall under. Filial generations for most exotic cat breeds are as follows:

F1 - 1st Generation  Exotic cat + Domestic Mother
F2 - 2nd Generation Domestic Father + F1 Mother
F3 - 3rd Generation Domestic Father +  F2 Mother
F4 - 4th Generation  Dom…
