If you have suffered an infant loss or miscarriage. Please know you are not alone. Please know that while it is hard and while some people may not understand or support you, it is okay to grieve. It is okay to feel however you need to feel and for however long you need to feel it. This is not something that is often talked about. In fact, I didn’t know how many of my friends had miscarriages until I started talking about mine. That is why I have talked about mine so much. I want people to know that it is okay to grieve for the child you didn’t get to know. It is okay to miss that child and wonder what might have been.
With having all the kids’ activities in full swing, I am always on the lookout for quick and easy dishes to make for the whole family. Recently, I got inspired to make this tasty dish and thought I would share it with you!
In June, I ended up being life-flighted to the hospital with symptoms of a stroke. As it turned out, I did not have a stroke, thank goodness. However, I had a major setback in dealing with issues from a traumatic brain injury from years ago that involved being struck by a vehicle while I was crossing the street. All the progress I have made over the years and all the things from my TBI that I have tried to hide and pretend that it was nothing has all come back to haunt me in a bad way.
That is where creating a new bath and bedtime regime have come into play. The last few months leading up to our move have been downright chaotic. Sweetpea used to have a regular bedtime, and while we didn’t have a strict ritual, it has been in my mind to create one because my other kids thrived on routine when they were little. I wanted to incorporate things she would enjoy while creating a relaxing atmosphere to help her prepare for sleep.
Sweet Pea is getting so big and is loving all the fresh fruits and veggies from all the local summer farm stands! She especially loves her blueberries and can’t get enough of them!
