  • I Hate PCOS

    So, I have PCOS.  Sexy, huh?  That’s short for Poly Cystic Ovarian Syndrome, which in essence, means that I have many cysts on my ovaries which makes it hard for eggs to escape and babies to be made.  You would think that would be it.  You would think that now that I have my babies […]

  • So Frustrating!

    Tonight was bath night.  I ignored the massive amount of splashing happening in the bathtub to claim a little moment for myself – to read the monitor in Entertainment Weekly, you know, which celebrity married who, which ones had a kid etc.  when I hear Jude start calling, “Dow?  Dow?

Jude Said

  • Nicknames 2013-01-04 21:30:33-

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.
