Yes, fair reader, I am here. Alive and well…alive. It has been a whirlwind of a summer and I have so many things I need to catch you up on! I will tell you right now, I do not think I can cover it all in one, or two, or even three postings. There was soooo much that transpired over the last 4ish months…for better for worse… I am going to do my best to cover it all..

Almost 2 years ago, I brought home a tiny little girl with a mop of black hair who totally depended on me for everything. This 9lb little butterball became the most important thing in my life overnight; her needs superseded mine and oh boy did she have needs! But I didn’t mind because with the birth of that itty bitty human came the realization of a dream I had had since I was a little girl myself: I was finally a mommy.

One of the biggest sources of guilt for me so far as a mom, is that I don’t feel like I spend enough time with my daughter. I keep telling myself it is because I don’t know how to relate to a toddler, my training is in elementary education, not early childhood- I will be much better when she is a little older, I kept telling myself.. but deep down I was so upset that my meaningful interactions with Tiny were few and far between.

We live in a very very mixed up world.

If you know me at all you know I have my pet causes:

Natural birth awareness, nursing, cloth diapering, all that good stuff, and of course, being anti- vaccination. I am not going to talk about that here don’t worry, but I feel one key component of my opposition is relevant to the following topic, and that is the toxins that are present inside of vaccines, things that I don’t really want to inject into my child’s body.

I. am. exhausted.

Not in that “gee, I think I need a nap and a latte,” sort of way. Not in the “work is just taking too much out of me this week” kind of way- I am exhausted to my very core. I forget where I put things, I forget what I am doing, I have no idea what time or day it is. I have Hermes bags under my eyes- that is how tired I am.

Let me start out this post by saying I absolutely adore my daughter. She is my entire world, my light, my precious gift from G-d. You can see me wax poetic about her in just about every one of these entries. She is adorable, she is funny, and sweet, and least importantly, she is gorgeous. Tiny is everything a mommy could ask for in a baby girl.

That being said.. I am absolutely head-over-heels in love with her baby brother…and the funniest thing about it?

I have never been a big fan of New Year’s Resolutions. Actually, to be totally honest, I think they are kind of silly. The idea of waiting until a certain day or time to make positive changes in one’s life sounds kind of counter intuitive. I mean, what about the 72 cigarettes you are going to smoke BEFORE January 1? Or the big macs you plan to eat? It’s not like all those bad habits are exempt from causing adverse effects in the meantime.
