Forget Ghosts, Goblins and Witches, Real Life is Scary Enough

Our 3 year old son Mason has Isovaleric Acidemia. Last night our 8 year old daughter Jaydalyn, who has Down Syndrome, offered her brother pieces of roast beef from her sandwich. Stephen quickly stopped her and I didn't think Mason actually ate any of it.

I thought wrong.

Help! My Blog Sucks!

I have wanted ever so much to have a successful blog for years but I never put enough work into it and I've spent to much time trying way to hard. My writing doesn't come out naturally because I'm a shy person and I'm afraid to over-share and humiliate myself or my family. Like most writers, I think what I write is crap, it's never good enough to share. I don't want it critiqued, it's mine. I'm my own critic. How can I write a blog if I don't share? How can I become a better writer if I don't open myself up to criticism? How can I be relate-able if I put on a big fat front. The same big fat front that turns me away from other blogs?

Our Family is Complete! Milo is Here!

Sweet little Milo Mackenzie Cupp arrived last week by cesarean section with a full head of hair at 2:13 pm on August 16th. I was 38 weeks and 4 days along. He had a birth-weight of 7 lbs 11 oz and birth length of 20 inches. He's a healthy, strong, beautiful boy and a great eater. I am so happy to be his mama.
