We went to the Ghouls and Glow event at the zoo for my birthday this weekend and it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Previous years, with trick-or-treating at the zoo, were definitely more festive and fun. The kids area was DECKED OUT though. They h... Read more
Terrible Plan
Thursday, September 26, 2019      3 comments

I couldn't take the weight gain anymore so I quit my meds cold turkey. Ultimately, a terrible decision. I'm barely functioning, symptomatic, and while I lost a good chunk of weight at first I'm now simply maintaining even with eating within my c... Read more

Babe seems to be doing well at the new daycare. She's getting him to eat his full bottle, which the other daycare only did once, and she said he's cooing and making other sounds. My husband swears he said "mommy" this morning, but I think that's... Read more

I am absolutely livid. Last night I got a phone call from babes daycare saying they were refusing to take him back. They said when my husband came by yesterday he didn't look any better - he was pale, frothing, and lethargic and they weren't com... Read more

I think I figured out why I'm having so much trouble sticking to the plan right now. It's a lifestyle I developed over two years that was put on hold for 9 months and I'm trying to just jump right back in with both feet. I'm not the same as I wa... Read more

We had the follow-up appointment for my little one yesterday. It wasn't our usual pediatrician since this was an urgent follow-up from the PICU, so hopefully his well-baby check on Monday (vaccines, yay) goes faster. But she said he's looking go... Read more

Hey everyone, I'm back! I was supposed to be gone until the 29th on maternity leave but my work sent me an email telling me my leave was miscalculated and I needed to return today instead. I am sad - it was really hard leaving baby at the daycar... Read more
