Happy Valentine’s Day 2013

I have so many blog posts running through my head.  I need to pick one and just start writing, even if I write for five minutes at a time, it would be better than nothing.  I feel good when I write.

  • I’ve continued to read blogs and I’ve made some awesome discoveries over the past year that I need to share.  Seriously awesome stuff.
  • I want to tell you about how I threw a rockin’ baby’s first birthday party.  We had SO. MUCH. FUN.  Well, at least I did.
  • I want to tell you about my experience with open adoption and just how wonderful it can be when everyone does what feels right.
  • I want to finish up my Road to Rocky series, because it gets better.
  • I want to share with you how I approach talking about adoption with the children in my family.
  • I want to tell you about the twins in my life!  I am an aunt to TWINS and it is awesome.  They are adorable, like living doll babies and I don’t have to get up with them at night!
  • My niece, Button is growing and growing.  She loves Rocky but she loves Sesame Street more than anything else on the planet.  She calls it “Sunny Days” and that makes me smile.
  • I want to share with you how overwhelming it can be at times to work full-time and be a mom to a little one.  Nothing can really prepare you for the intensity of the pace that life keeps bringing.

But, for today, I want to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day!

I hope that you have someone special to love today.  Whether that someone be a child, an aunt or uncle, a grandparent, a parent, a cousin, a sister or brother, a niece or nephew a neighbor or friend, may they be your perfect valentine(s)!

PS.  For his protection, please don’t use Rocky’s real name in the comments or elsewhere online.  Thanks!

      I found four goldfish crackers on the floor behind a toy train today. I immediately thought of you and ask myself “What would Julie do?”

      Those crackers were delicious given the fact that I didn’t take the time to eat breakfast.

    Rocky is so beautiful it’s ridiculous! Happy Valentine’s day to you.

    I’m looking forward to those posts, whenever they come.

  6. I look forward to hearing about how you share embryo adoption with the children! :)

    • Ms. Pollywog says:

      I will be talking to the kids in our family about open adoption as it relates to our relationship with Rocky’s birthparents and family and the roles we all play in his life. Embryo adoption didn’t work out for us, but we’re okay with that. We have the baby that was meant for us. Thanks for commenting, Leah!

  7. Happy birthday (belated) to your son! I bet that was a wonderful party.

    Glad to read things are going so well!
