The Personhood Act- The Opinion

The Personhood Act- The Opinion

The Rules 1. Either read ALL of it, or stop now. (This will be long and involved. Consider yourself warned.) 2. If you haven’t read The Personhood Act yet, do that first.  The Background I’ve been avoiding writing about this for a couple of months now. I don’t like getting involved in politics. That’s why […]

The Personhood Act- Just the Facts, Ma’am

The Personhood Act- Just the Facts, Ma’am

If you want to know my qualifications for making any comments about such a topic, see “About Me”. The Personhood Act (Senate Bill 1433) appears to be pretty much “dead in the water” when it comes to the Oklahoma House and Senate, at this moment. So, why all the hubbub, Bub? There is a lot of […]

Letting Go

Letting Go

When you first decide to have a baby (or even if it was a surprise), I think we all have this lovely idea of trips to the zoo, cuddling on the couch, and still being able to get all of our normal chores done (which we couldn’t even find the time or motivation to get […]

Singin’ in the Rain

Singin’ in the Rain

Oh, it’s been one of those weeks. Baby girl is doing better, though still not enough to warrant normal life. It’s been difficult to study, and even more difficult to take her to the doctor. I have a very high respect for those parents who have to do that with their children often, for whatever […]

Combating Misinformation About Vaccines

Combating Misinformation About Vaccines

This is something I’ve been wanting to write about for a while, but this writer has done an excellent job. I’m in my first year of medical school and have seen too much factual data to not get fired up about this topic. Please read. You may hate me, but it’s the truth. Consider it […]

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

1. Even though I’m in medical school, I still panic like any other mom. I think I might panic even more because I know all of the horrible one-in-a-bagillion chance things that can go wrong or that it “could be”. No fun. No fair. 2. School isn’t that important to me. Don’t get me wrong. […]

Eclectic Me

Eclectic Me

Tomorrow I have a Bacteriology test, which means a couple of things. 1. I’m kind of stressed out. That’s normal. It’ll pass. 2. I will be carrying around 5 bottles of Germ-X, cringing every time Abby plays in the dirt, and overcooking anything I eat. I’ll pass in a few days when I finally annoy […]

Baby Steps, Bob!

Baby Steps, Bob!

When change happens TO me- it seems to happen suddenly. Last January there was one business week that went something like this. 1. Michael’s interview at The Church. 2. We found out that we were having an “Abigail”. 3. I had my medical school interview. 4. We closed on our first house. Talk about change. […]

Be All There (Part Dos)

Be All There (Part Dos)

Yesterday didn’t start off the greatest. Baby girl woke up at 1 am throwing up. We gave her some Motrin to get her fever down, but it didn’t seem like anything we should take her in for. (To all those wondering, the stuffed kitty kat came out of the wash just fine.) Didn’t sleep much—and […]
