Oh no! I thought for a second you were leaving the blog world, but I'm glad to find out you are moving on and up. :) I look forward to keep your new site. Also? This picture is freakin' amazing! XOXO! Wish I was going to BlogHer, (booo, weep) .... one of these years I will meet you and hug you and thank you for all that you have shared and all that you have helped me. ;)

I think it's great that you are open with your PPD struggles. I dealt with fairly bad PPD after my son was born. I most recently gave birth to my daughter 5 mos ago and I'm doing great, but I am okay. The more honest we are about these realities, the more it will help others and ease the shame and social stigma. Thanks again. :)

I could not have said it better myself! Call me catty, but yeah, she had this coming and I love hearing about it. p.s. my house is dirty too -- we are the second owners in it's 7 year life. GROSS!

Okay, I'm in. I'm taking the pledge too. THIS post was MY WAKEUP CALL. Thanks for sharing and being so honest. I do the same thing, my brain is going a million miles a minute. I'm going to write about this on my blog and I will link to you. You are right, so very right, nothing is more important than my kids and our safety.

Joyce sounds like a truly beautiful person. My deepest sympathies are with you, Jill, and those her knew her. I'm very sorry for your loss.

I am so so sorry that you are dealing with this. Losing a person we love is difficult no matter the circumstances but with your special understanding of the sadness your grandpa was feeling and not knowing how to tell the children on top of your own grief must be ... nearly disabling. Kudos for writing about it, and eloquently at that. I wish you strength during this most challenging time. My deepest sympathies to you and your family ;)

I would like to think I would know if someone was "hinting" to me that they get it. I get so many awkward looks in the store with my kids and I'm talking to Noah to keep him focused and calm or signing MORE incessantly and over-acting when he drops his toys and screams and I'm all "it's okay, *sign* pick up, pick up. I, personally, would not have minding hearing, "i get it, you're doing a great job" ... but I guess some people aren't as open about it as I am. Also, we need to become real life friends, now that we belong to the special club. ;)

Oh wow Marissa ... That means so much! Just when I'm feeling low and down I saw this comment, thanks so much for letting me know you think of me as a positive presence! Some days it isn't easy but knowing other families as warm and friendly as you guys really helps! S.

I'm so glad you wrote this because I'm going in tomorrow morning for my repeat c-section. (The VABC plan was foiled because of my petite (!?!?) pelvis, LOL) I'm going to desperately miss my toddler and that scares me more than surgery, epidurals and gowns with frontal slats but you are right ... my meals will be delivered and cleaned up and that alone is priceless! I am hoping to get home in 2-3 days, we'll see. Noah can't visit me either - new Sibley rules and I've very bummed but it will be okay. Congratulations on your new addition :) I hope things are going well for you all.

Gunfighter, Jodifur and Nancy ... you are all right. I'll grow a backbone before next Thanksgiving and insist on having it here. I also came home last night and was super thankful that my house was clean and there were no dishes to clean up.

I'm still in the phase (and currently gestating more noisemakers) of hearing noise all over the house all the time. I dream of the day and also dread the day that the house is quiet for a few hours. I hope you find an enjoyable way to spend those hours.

I. TOTALLY. UNDERSTAND. That primal mother urge to check on your child is insatiable sometimes. I always, in hindsight am glad I got up, but I could cry thinking of how many DECADES it will be until I can sleep uniterrupted and unconcerned.

You do make a good point at all moms just trying to get everything done but I will say, speaking as a stay at home mom, without validation in the "accepted" or "normal" way of real pay and thanks and bonuses it is easy to get sidetracked and grow resentful when the person we are sharing it with, our partners, don't understand what goes into getting the kids and home cared for. When I worked full time my husband and I split the house chores, completing a house cleaning in about three hours on Saturday morning. Now that I'm home he does ONE THING, he cleans the litter box, and thats partly because I am pregnant! The assumption that it's an easy job or that it's relaxing is a myth that I'm happy Michael Miller took on and conquered successfully with his story.

I would like to make a video documenting my current (second) pregnancy and also my son's life, he's 19 mos old, prior to having a sibling. I think it would make a nice family memento to capture this time in our changing growing family.

Neither my mother or my mother in law wanted to be Bubbe. So, my childless Aunt, who is very involved in our lives is Noah's Bubbe. My mother calls herself "oma" --- she says because I always whine "Oh! Maaa!"

Well said. I got my period at age 10. In 7th grade I was an old pro and on the second day of school it started that morning and I had gym class that week. I asked my mother if I could use tampons and she replied that you first had to "have intercourse" before you could use tampons. Knowing that she was full of horse sh*t I defied her the following summer by purchasing them on my own while out of town with relatives and figuring it all out myself. You know what I hated the most? I hid tampon use from her until I got married. Wouldn't want THAT to be her clue that I was sexually active. Heh.

Oh wow. I can't believe you went through that. I would have jumped in head first with no life-jacket. Thankfully, I will learn from your (husband's) mistake.

Because you practically begged for comments ... Heh, here is one. Noah laughed at me yesterday when on the third try of backing into my parking space I still wasn't straight and I yelled, "Shit!"

Sounds like a nice experience. Oh! I hope to get some solo-shopping time soon! Sadly, I'm gearing up for some solo-parenting for a stretch. Booo!
