After an 8 month hiatus…

I’m back!

So apparently getting pregnant and then having a preemie baby and then taking that baby home and then going back to work keeps one busy! I thought the 6 month period where we bought a house, moved, graduated, look the bar exam, and got married was a crazy time, but it turns out that was a walk in the park.


Now that I feel like I have a routine down (knock on wood because I know I will regret saying that), I want to get back to writing for fun.

I hope to mainly use this as a digital scrapbook. Kevin and I have plans to travel, update our house, and raise a little cutie. I can’t wait to share details of our crazy life so I can go back and reminisce when my mombrain forgets those details.


One of my regrets was not writing more when Em was in the NICU. Looking back I don’t think I was in the right mind to write my feelings (darn hormones!). Now that it has been nearly 6 months since Emerson was born (where does the time go??), I’m hoping to go back and write about those 51 days in our “home” away from home.

I also hope to write honestly about parenthood- the trials, the successes, how to make it work with two working parents, sharing responsibilities, how to have “balance” (ha!), etc.


Oh, and you can bet there will be lots of adorable baby pictures. If you want nearly daily updates on what Emerson is doing, follow me over on Instagram.

I can’t wait to get back at it!

So tell me, when was the craziest, busiest point of your life? Would you go back and write about it? Or would you rather move on and never think about it again?

    This amazing woman is my daughter-in-law, who is one of the BEST moms to our precious granddaughter. Jessi, I admire you for so many reasons, but the care you’ve committed to little Em is one of your legacies. We love you!

    Oh, and the craziest, busiest time of my life was when our two children were born to about…well, now! We went through all that you and Kevin are experiencing now: working parents, (actually, teacher/farmer was a good combination-we were each busy in opposite seasons) babysitters, later school & activities, and it was a blur. I cannot actually remember a whole day from beginning to end-there was too much activity. Would I do I all again? Without a doubt. But, with these caveats: I’d spend less time trying to be the “perfect” mom, and more time looking out for the “me” outside of mommy-land. I gave myself little thought, and let some health issues come up to visit me-not too well thought out on my part. So, my advice is to keep up your personal time, leave Em with Kevin (or others who love her), and do some “me” time.
