World Book Day: Children’s Books

This may just be my largest/longest post in this mini series.  As a child there wasn't many times I was caught without my nose in a book.  I would have to be told several times to leave it away from the dinner table, I would take it in the bath with me, the car, shopping … Continue reading World Book Day: Children’s Books

World Book Day: Romance

A little less my forte, but deserving of a post of its own all the same.

I haven't really discussed fertility that much with doctors, but it has recently come up with my new endocrinologist.  She discovered a note on my file made by my … Continue reading The Baby Battle Continues

Motherhood

Motherhood: a struggle at every stage. For several years I was asked when I was going to have children.  The assumption slowly turned to never.  For me, it was a personal decision I wasn't prepared to make, nor did I think I should have to.  At 20; 25; 28; 30 even.  Children are a lifelong … Continue reading Motherhood
