So technically Kya is officially 6 months which also means that I am officially 6 months post-partum. Physically I am doing very well, other than having a sore back from carrying around such a chunky monkey, and still losing more hair than I’d like in all the wrong places. I mean sheesh, post-partum hair loss could at least throw me a solid and shed in other areas too…Tweet
I don’t know how much I’ve talked about my family in the past few months here, but I know I’ve mentioned my Grandma’s failing health on my other social media sites. I promise it wasn’t in a, “feel bad for me and give me attention” sort of way, just as a, “this is how I’m feeling right now” way.
Today I want to talk about death.
I’ve noticed in my news feeds that fellow mothers that I’m friends with are losing loved ones in their lives, and also with the Boston bombings, more families are having to deal with loss and talking to their kids about it as well…I guess what I’m getting at, is how do you explain different kinds of loss?
This past weekend was an exhausting one for my family, both physically and emotionally. As some of you know my Grandma, who my kids refer to as GG (so I will as well to save time typing), has been slowly deteriorating.

Last week my mother sent me a very amusing article on dating, asking me if I too was dating, but instead online? (Don’t mind the bunny picture above, I just thought it was cute) Now as you guys know, I met my husband online through a dating site so I thought she was just trying to be funny. When I went to the article however, I realized that yes, I was online dating again. I was online dating other moms and women.
I loved this article on mommy dating because it was true. Before I started blogging/vlogging, you all know that I had very little friends and those friends that I did have, had lives or lived further away than I’d liked. So I was very lonely. Now the solution to loneliness, just like when you’re single, is to go out and meet someone. With my husband I had no time to go out and meet someone being a single mom, so instead I went online, now almost 5 years later with two more kids, I had even less time to find someone to be my friend, so once again, I went online… Continue readingTweet
