Two Momths

Dear Beatrice and Gabriel, You are two months old and although it feels like the time has flown by, it has been the most intense two months of my life. I always planned on writing a monthly letter to you but it is proving difficult, especially the first month when you weren’t even home yet […]

Down River

It was such a tight fit that my water broke 3 days later on the 23rd of October. I was admitted into the hospital that night not having gone into labour and the waiting game began. I sat in the hospital for 5 days before the babies came and that was too soon.

Tight Fit

I am almost 32 weeks pregnant now and from what I have read it is supposed to be getting tight in there for the little guys. They say you won’t feel such intense movement but should still feel squirming. I still feel tons of movement from both of them and in fact often think that […]

There is a moment, does everyone have it? Before you are totally awake that life hasn’t set in yet. You have just opened your eyes but the reality of your life hasn’t started. I remember when I was had just separated from my first husband, that that 30 seconds of ignorance was the best of […]

Amazingly Intense, Potent and Brilliant Body

Virgo Horoscope for week of October 11, 2007 “The faintest star in the night sky is Van Biesbroeck’s star. It’s only about as big as the Earth and is just .002 percent as luminous as our sun. Every other heavenly light outshines it. From one perspective, then, it’s a puny little thing. And yet it […]

“Sleep perchance to Dream”

Baby books will tell you that you ‘might’ have very vivid dreams during your pregnancy………..This is an understatement!!!! My dreams have ranged from crazy sex romps with other women, yes I have had ‘lez-bean’ dreams, although the first one happened during ‘Pride’ weekend here in Toronto and I thought maybe I was just celebrating diversity….subconsciencely…., […]

Smells like new car
