The Best Mothers Day Ever.

Ellyn Shepherd / Bloggity Blog, Life / / 0 comments

So, I have this thing with Special Days. I feel an uncontrollable and unbridled excitement for any kind of Special Day, whether it be Christmas, Birthdays, Mothers Day, Fathers Day or… really… just any day of the week. And I always hope, NAY EXPECT, others around me to share it too. But the problem is that my abnormal levels of enthusiasm means I expect too much, and regardless of what occurs, I find myself disappointed. It’s ridiculous I know. I should have been a freaking Christmas Elf. (more…)

Toddlers Gone Wild

There is something that happens to a toddler when a newborn sibling enters the world. Something extraordinary. Something astounding. Something semi horrific. The toddler that was once sweet and loving and gorgeous turns unexpectedly into something … different… And let me tell you, that something is…at least 45% monster. Sigh. (more…)

The Musings Of A Four Month Old Baby

Ever wonder what goes through the mind of a super bald teeny tiny baby? I know I sure do. Instead of coming out of my hoo-ha speaking English as any good baby should, she babbles, squeals, snorts and squirms in my arms, and I have absolutely NO idea what she is talking about. Sigh. (more…)

I know that you all already know this (because I wont stop talking about it), but I am about to go from being a mother of one child to a mother of two in this glorious game of parenthood. I am so close to doing so, that I am actually due today. Like, literally TODAY. And you know what crossed my mind last night? The thought flicked in and out again, but it was there… The thought that I have absolutely no idea how I will manage as a parent of two kids. (more…)

I must preface this instalment by mentioning that we have recently experienced a death in the family. A very unexpected death, and it has left our whole family shattered and stunned. It is not remotely my story to tell, so I will say no more on the subject, however I do want you to know that as I write these words, my heart is breaking over and over. And because of this, this piece will not be as joyous as my usual posts and for that I am sorry. I hope you can forgive me… xox (more…)
