Stay-at-home Recap

This is my fourth week back at work and I never gave a recap of my stay-at-home experience.

Post Adoption Week 13 Summary

Peanut is going through something… early terrible two’s?  Molars?  She’s just a difficult child?  It will be interesting to see if our parenting method will eventually turn Peanut into a manageable and well-behaved child or if we just got really lucky with Soso. 480 more words

Post Adoption Week 10 Summary

10 weeks!  Can’t believe it.  Survived another week and weekend with just a small bump on the road.  Survived while having a miscarriage, giving D some time away, being constantly rejected for D, managing through 3 play dates, a lunch at a friends and dealing with Soso’s swimmer’s ear and the boredom and the whining that ensued. 360 more words
