Thanks for joining us for part 1 in our series called A “Made for Adventure” Marriage.  Many, many people reach the end of their parenting years and realize one morning, sitting at the table that they don’t know the person across from them anymore.

Especially if they aren’t my only child?! Well…you grab one baby up in your arms, one toddler by the hand, and you march out the door. With purpose and…

Yesterday we talked about breast feeding.  So now we are moving from an awkward topic to a scary topic. Hmmm…. When I became a mom, I never knew that there was such a thing as “scheduling” your baby…or that it would be so controversial. I was told in the hospital [very firmly I might add]…

It is with great trepidation that I share the photo below… because I look like crap! I just had a baby, a gruelling 60 hours of labor that resulted in a c-section.  [No, I am not exaggerating.] Welcome to having a newborn! The night previous was our first night home. At 2 a.m., the baby…
