Ever have one of those days when you second-guess every parenting decision you’ve ever made? On potty-training (or lack thereof): the medication that was supposed to make pooping easier only contributes to a) my daughter’s tendency to hold it in–which is proving to be a near-impossible feat of both physical strength and iron will at […]
Our frozen embryos left our old RE’s new clinic on Friday. They are due to arrive at our new clinic here in the UK sometime today. Finally. We’re not planning to do our FET until early next year, but I’ll be so relieved to know they’ve arrived safely at their (our) new home. Want to […]

We set our clocks back an hour Saturday night (even that’s different here!). Missy went to bed just after 7 pm pre-time-change. It was partly poor planning on my end because the falling back totally snuck up on me, and partly due to the fact she’d been fighting sleep like nobody’s business for two nights […]
