birth motherhood

The Greatest Joy Of Our Lives

For days, weeks really I thought I’d wake up at 2:30 in the morning like the other two kids, have my water break, and it would be birth time. But days went by, nights went on, and even with daily contractions, there was no baby.

The week of my third child’s birth I was having consistent contractions that would just… stop. It’s actually called Prodromal Labor, and I had it with all 3 of my pregnancies. I’d be up all night thinking it was the night, and fall asleep. I’d wake up to it all gone.


Hey mama, you’re doing great.

When you’re a stay at home mom (SAHM) and also a homeschooling mom, you are basically with your children 24/7. Literally from the moment they wake up until the moment they go to sleep the next day, they’re with you (since they’re also keeping you up all night).

I have heard more times than I can count “I don’t know how you do it” and to be honest, this was my choice and if I had to choose a million times I’d choose this life with my kids.
