Have you ever cracked open an egg and found two yolks inside? What does it mean? Marriage, pregnancy, twins, death? Here’s what happened to me.
When I became pregnant with Joey, Anneliese was just under a year old. I knew she couldn’t possibly understand what was really happening, and what was going to change with our family in just a few months, but I did my best to prepare her for his arrival. Considering that upon seeing him the first
During World Breastfeeding Week this year, I’m answering a few questions, sharing my resources, and telling my story. PLEASE note: I’m not a lactation consultant. I’m not a doctor. I’m just a mom.
