I’m Melissa and welcome to my blog. I am a part-time dentist (yes, I do look in kids’ mouths all day) who decided to start blogging because I truly enjoy writing about parenthood. I tend to be somewhat witty in my posts as I really believe laughter is the key to life. Come along on the journey with me. I really hope you enjoy what I write.
Children have always been on my mind since I got married. I work with kids and every time I had a screaming child in my dental chair, I hurried home and said to my husband that we must start trying. Yes, I do end my days with massive headaches in case you were wondering.
Anyway, my princess Hayley was born 10-2-2008. She is the apple of my eye. I can be having the worst days of my life but hearing her voice lifts me up like no one in the world can do. She is a rambunctious, loud, funny, non-reserved, petite, and fun-loving three-year-old. I still go in her room nightly to watch her sleep. I could not have been blessed with a better child. She is not a perfect angel but I love her more for being her own person. She has her opinions and is not afraid to let me in on them.
Here is my love #1:
My husband and I took a vacation to Hawaii in July 2010. I was nowhere ready to try for children because Hayley was a colicky infant and I could not imagine going through that again. So, I told my husband, we will wait till I was ready. Well, imagine my surprise when I took a pregnancy test on August 1, 2010 and clear as day, the test had a big positive on it.
On March 31, 2011, prince Zane came in our life. I seriously could not ask for a sweeter baby. He coos and laughs at me all day. When I come home from work, his face lights up. It actually brings tears to my eyes! Okay, I really need to stop being mushy. He is so easy and we are blessed to have him in our family. Sure he might wake up a million times a night and require feed during the day every 3 hours, but I love him!!
Here is my love #2:
And yes, I already know, they have some great hair! I am actually jealous. And yes, I did have wicked heartburn!
Hope you enjoy reading The Mommyhood Chronicles.
