If your a mommy, expecting or trying to conceive you need to check this website out!! The JustMommies community has been so fun to be a part of! I think they have every kind of board that you'd want to be involved in. Due Date Clubs, Trying to Concieve, Playrooms, Photography, Siggies, etc. I could go on & on! lol

Apart from the forums on JustMommies, they have loads of information for parents.
Information includes:
Parenting Information
Pregnancy Information
Trying to Conceive
Celebrity Baby News

That is only a small portion of all JustMommies has to offer! They recently updated their forum software. While the transition was a little bumpy, things got back to order in a fairly quick manner. We've been told that this change will offer alot of new features to the forum!

ETA: Their is a forum for Angel Moms as well!

Life without an arm

So my mom & I went to our monthly bereaved parents support group meeting tonight. Unfortunately we had a new family join us. It's been 10mos since their loss. Everytime a new family join, it kinda takes us back to talking about the emotions we felt in the beginning, how we coped, etc.

But anyways, another father was talking about how we go on & "adjust". He had a great example about going on after the loss of a child that I'd never thought of before. He said it's like losing an arm ... you can survive after you've lost an arm, but your going to do things differently & life will never be the same. I sat & thought about what a good example that is. I survive without Landan, but things happen differently & life isn't the same as it was with Landan.

Just a way for someone bereaved to look at something. It made sense to me.

"I know who you are!"

I finally got that feeling from Layne the other night as we looked at a picture of his big brother, Landan!

Layne was playing in his jumperoo the other night & noticed he was starting to get sleepy. I wanted to cuddle him for awhile so I picked him up & we walked around the apartment. We went into Landan's room & looked at the Spongebob posters on the wall. Then we walked into the hallway & I flicked on the light so we could look at Landan's pictures there. I we stood infront of one of Landan's 3yr pictures ... Landan got a sweet ole smile on his face. I said "That's your big brother Landan!. You know who he is don't you!" It was the sweetest thing.

We actually looked at the picture again tonight & Layne smiled again. It makes me heart smile with him.

Here is the picture he smiles at.

Good rule of thumb!

"When you don't have something nice to say, don't say it at all."

I follow that rule of thumb alot to keep myself out of trouble! Sometimes the urge to say something gets to me. But just tonight. I felt almost compelled to speak up on an issue I thought was silly. BUT ... low & behold I was able to conquer that urge & probably keep myself out of the unevitable trouble I would have found myself in lol.
