Lighthearted and occasionally sarcastic sharing of my experiences with infertility, baby-raising after infertility and life after losing a parent.

Everybody loves to share
Micah and the dog are becoming great friends - they love to share things like food and toys. Really, neither one of them seems to understand that they each have different toys and food. Micah is always stealing the dog's alligator and frog, the dog is always trying to steal Micah's food, and yesterday she made off with Elmo. She growled and shook him as Elmo cried out "Hahahaha!" and "Elmo loves it!" Micah found this too funny and laughed and laughed. When he finally regained possession of Elmo, he, too, put Elmo in his mouth. I have a feeling the dog and Micah will be swapping spit many times in the next few years. Does it make me a bad mom that I just don't have the energy to be disgusted by this anymore?
I'm an attorney and policy consultant, and DH is a consultant to nonprofit organizations. We met at a Superbowl Party in 2005, got engaged the following year, and we were married in November 2006. We had a long and rocky road before finally welcoming our first baby, Micah, into this world on December 14, 2008.
