We have bad news :(

Well.... so much has been going on lately that I am just plain overwhelmed.

I am having to either quit school or go down to two classes because James keeps getting hurt at daycare. I pulled him out today so he will be staying home with me full time. We have had two bad goose eggs on his forehead, each eye has gotten blacked, he has busted his lip, and other random bumps and bruises just in the past four weeks. Ever since he had that 105 fever with the pneumonia he has had these random arm twitches. His pediatrician is sending us to a neurologist to rule out problems with his brain and damage from all the recent falls. I just hope everything is ok with him. I hate to put school on hold and knock myself even further back but what choice do I have? I have to get him straightened out first. I am praying that it is all just a coincidence.

Please if you have a moment just send some good vibes my way. We need it.


  1. I have awarded you the "ONE SWEETALICOUS BLOG AWARD" please come by my blog for the details :)

    I know this award won't really help that much with what you are going though but I hope that it will give you just a little sunshine in your day today. I wish you good luck with your son. I hope everything works out for the best!!!!


  2. I am so sorry that your little guy is sick. I am sure everything is fine. I know it is so easy for someone to say that to you and for you as a mother not to believe it. I know how scared you are, last year Noah got really sick and had to go to a specialist and had to have a bunch of tests done. Luckily it ended up being something small and easily managed but I remember how scary it was. I hope everything goes well.

    I have to tell you one of the reasons I started reading your blog is because I remember being a 23 year old mother of a baby boy too. When I got pregnant with Noah I was in college and in an instant everything changed. I remember I went from a 22 year old with no cares in the world to a 23 year old with a baby, a fiancé and a house. I remember being where you are, I think you are a superwomen how you juggle everything you do. Being an old lady now I can tell everything will eventually fall into place. I am rooting for you.

  3. Hi Erica,

    I just friended you on Busy Moms of Etsy. I thought I'd check out your blog and boy can I relate too. I am mom to 4. I did things slightly unconventionally...married at 18, first child at 19, second child at 21 and THEN I decided to go back to school. I did end up getting my BS degree although I did it part time for a long time to fit it in my and my family's schedule. Just know that you are not alone in feeling overwhelmed and that if you prioritize and take things 1 day at a time, it can be done. Listen to your gutt w/ your son. I think you did the right thing pulling him out of the day care he was in. Once you get things straightened out with him you can pursue a different day care. Just remember 1 day at a time, 1 hurdle at a time and take lots of deep breaths :). School will be there, it may not be easy but you'll get it done. By the way, hubby and I have been married 17 years now and since getting my degree I have had 2 more kiddies. It hasn't been easy but I wouldn't change a thing. Any time you need to vent please don't hesitate to write. ~Heather

  4. Thanks guys for the comments. I haven't been on the blog in a while so I am just now getting them actually.

    Seawillow- Thanks for the award :) It did make my day better

    Blue eyed dragonfly- Thanks. Things do drastically change. We were planning this baby but man we were in no way prepared for what actually came along with it :)

    Heather- Thanks for the comment. It does make it better to know that others go through it. I don't know how you handle 4 kids. I go nuts sometimes with 1 :)
