Been without a computer awhile, folks. Lets just blame it on the economy and not my crappy luck. My goddess of a neighbor finally hooked me up with a sweet deal so now im back in business. I wont be blogging much right away because I have landed myself a job outside the home that actually has a predictable, steady income. Woo hoo! I plan on returning rom time to time to tell funny stories about what happens at my job (I teach preschool.) Until then I will leave this pic of my angel- Emma Grace

In Honor of All the Mothers Out There-

Before I Was a Mom

Before I was a Mom,
I never tripped over toys
or forgot words to a lullaby.
I didn't worry whether or not
my plants were poisonous.
I never thought about immunizations.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never been puked on.
Pooped on.
Chewed on.
Peed on.
I had complete control of my mind
and my thoughts.
I slept all night.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held down a screaming child
so doctors could do tests.
Or give shots.
I never looked into teary eyes and cried.
I never got gloriously happy over a simple grin.
I never sat up late hours at night
watching a baby sleep.

Before I was a Mom,
I never held a sleeping baby just because
I didn't want to put her down.
I never felt my heart break into a million pieces
when I couldn't stop the hurt.
I never knew that something so small
could affect my life so much.
I never knew that I could love someone so much.
I never knew I would love being a Mom.

Before I was a Mom,
I didn't know the feeling of
having my heart outside my body.
I didn't know how special it could feel
to feed a hungry baby.
I didn't know that bond
between a mother and her child.
I didn't know that something so small
could make me feel so important and happy.

Before I was a Mom,
I had never gotten up in the middle of the night
every 10 minutes to make sure all was okay.
I had never known the warmth,
the joy,
the love,
the heartache,
the wonderment
or the satisfaction of being a Mom.
I didn't know I was capable of feeling so much,
before I was a Mom.

I have been extra busy in the studio making baby bowbands. The Abby-Doodles famous 'bowsies for your toesies' flip flops are soon to make their comeback too.
As a stay-at-home single mom of three, I have to use every hour of the day to my advantage! lol. I will be adding more inventory to my etsy store often. Once it is fully stocked, I will host a grand re-opening celebration. Check back here for updates!

Our world plus one

Three kids by myself. How do I do it? With lots of help and grace.

Emma Grace was named after my great grandmother, Emma Angelina. She was a strong woman with many talents and a heart of gold. My Emma has graced our lives by bringing us closer. Together, Spencer Abby and I are raising a happy, healthy beautiful baby girl. They are an amazing big brother and sister. They love her and are always willing to help.
