My Life in a Nut Shell

3 surgeries for Endometriosis, countless medications, and lots of difficult years trying to conceive. We put the medical stuff on hold and decided to work on being parents instead. In July of 2000 we were blessed beyond all measure with a phone call announcing the birth of our daughter, Megan. Megan's birth mother had given birth the day before and was leaving the hospital. We had no warning that Megan was coming. At 4:29 in the afternoon we were a couple, at 4:30 we were parents. Deciding that we wanted a sibling for Megan, we looked into all our options. This time insurance covered IVF. One round and we were blessed with triplets, Abigail, Brigid, and Caroline. Did you know that there is a 70% chance of divorce in families of Higher Order Multiples? Almost two years after the triplets were born my ex-husband and I separated and eventually divorced. During that time both my Mother and Father passed away from cancer. In February of 2007 my sister came to live with us to help out. In December of 2008 she had to leave so now it is me on my own with the girls. In February 2010, Lisa passed away and finally found her own Peace.

Creative Spelling

Brigie is my character. She always comes up with something funny. Just today she emptied out an entire bottle of body wash into the tub, poured out the detangler spray into the toothbrush draw, and filled up a Hi-C bottle with Fruit Loops so she could crush them easily and sprinkle them out everywhere. She tends to be a bit grouchy when she gets tired. Before nap she got mad at Abby over something. So she screamed, "Abby! I hate you! I'm going to spell her name A-B-B-Poopy."

It's just always something.
