Not feeling so well today this is the first pregnancy where I have been nauseous through the whole pregnancy and smell and food aversions still abound on top of that my sinuses are killing me and @ 26 wks I feel like we still have sooo much to do to prepare for the arrival of the twins.

Carrying twins is sooo much harder than just one baby, I'm not liking not being able to get around as well this soon in the pregnancy. It's exciting and daunting at the same time thinking of all the things we will need or rather trying to figure out what i will need.

so excited to go to my appointment tomorrow and check up on the twins. It's crazy for me to be showing at 19 wks but boy am I  LOL, which is funny considering at the beginning of my pregnancy i lost 7 lbs and I have only gained back 4.

I'm seriously considering homeschooling my son next year I really feel like even with the g.a.t.e program at his school that he still is not challenged enough in his regular class and therefore it is starting to affect his grades. But then I wonder whether i am qualified to homeschool my son , so many questions. I just want my son to thrive he is soo smart and I am worried that the traditional school setting will squash his spirit.  Thoughts?????

R.I.P. Lucille Clifton your poetry lives on...

and here's one of my favorites...

slaveship by Lucille Clifton

loaded like spoons

into the belly of Jesus

where we lay for weeks for months

in the sweat and stink of our own



why do you not protect us

chained to the heart of the Angel

where the prayers we never tell

are hot and red as our bloody ankles



can these be men

who vomit us out from ships

called Jesus Angel Grace of God

onto a heathen country



ever again

can this tongue speak

can this bone walk

Grace of God

can this sin live

Happy Valentines day everyone =)

and some news we have recently found out that my husbands daughter is pregnant, so we will be Grandpa and stepgrandma sometime in october =).
