    Happy Easter Y’all!
    From our family to yours, Happy Easter! Today was lovely, for many reasons, but mostly because life was all around us. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the Easter season than to give birth to one of God’s masterpieces. I pray that your Easter was filled with...

    Lent: Did You Blow it or Bring it?
    The Triduum is upon us. The holiest three days of the year are almost here and I think most of us are asking ourselves this one question: Did I blow it or bring it during these 40 days? Me? I did both. In many ways I felt like life slowed...

    Birth Story #4 {The One I Drove Myself to the Hospital, In Labor}
    Because a mom needs to reflect sometimes, I’m sharing the birth stories of each of my children as we count down the weeks to Baby Whitaker. Most of these were pre-blog days, so while I share these with you, I’m really writing these for the kids. And, here’s hoping I don’t...

    To The Iowa State VEISHEA Rioters, I Just Have One Question
    I opened my Facebook newsfeed this morning to see devastating news. Another riot broke out at VEISHEA. Another student was injured, seriously. Another year of planning, hard work and preparation would go to waste. Again. Back in 1998, I was elected to serve as the VEISHEA General Co-Chair, the year...

    37 Weeks: The Words Every Preemie Mom Dreams to Hear
    BL, as in “before Luke” I could often be found saying, “Oh, I hope I deliver early, because I am miserable.” Then we endured a living 44-day hell, plus some, in the neonatal intensive care unit. My perspective changed. I saw what a 24-weeker, a 31-weeker, a 35-weeker and everything...

    I often joke I’m on the path to sainthood with all these kids getting me on my knees and such. Isn’t middle school purifying enough for any mother?! But, before we open the cause for canonization, let’s talk legit saints. If you’ve seen Fr. Robert Barron’s Catholicism series and loved it,...

    7 Quick Takes: Growing our own food, a little pretty and a room full of t-sips
    - 1 - This week’s quotes of the week (QOTW): “I love you, too.” Luke says this before I can say ‘I love you’ at naptime. He beats me to the punch every day. It’s possible I let him because it’s so darn cute. “I’m saving my kisses for the...

    Keyword: HYDRATE
    Just popping in quickly to let you know the good news, you know, just in case you didn’t hear the HALLELUJAH from where you are. The repeat ultrasound showed a nice jump in amniotic fluid levels, to within the normal range. I’m on strict orders to drink like a fish,...
