Everybody needs a change every now and then.

So, a long, long time ago I began blogging.  The adventure began back in 2004 when Chris and I first began trying to conceive.  We thought, "This won't take long...We know what to do.  Surely this will be a piece of cake."  We were sadly mistaken.  I became pregnant and promptly miscarried.  It then took another year, including timed baby-dancing and Clomid, to conceive again.  I took Prometrium to help me stay pregnant, and in Feb. 2006, Andrew made us mommy and daddy.  During that whole process, I began my first blog, here.  After another miscarriage and finally another successful pregnancy (Hannah), I decided to move here.  After all, we were D.O.N.E. with pregnancy and chidbirth.  The whole thing was WAY too emotionally and physically stressful on me.  I moved my blog to represent the beginning of a "new chapter" -- one with no worries about getting/staying pregnant, enduring the emotional 9 months and traumatizing childbirths at the end.  One where I could think deeply and ponder the "big questions."  Well, it hasn't worked out that way.  I end up talking mostly about my kiddos (as any mom would). 
After much debate and deliberation, I have decided to compartmentalize.  I will open this blog here to talk about mommy-related topics (potty training, discipline, balancing working and being home with the fam) and I will stay at the other place to talk about the deeper issues that cross my mind.  So, I will be blogging in two places now.  Confused yet?  Yeah, so am I.  I'm betting this blog gets way more attention, but I will do my darndest not to abandon it completely! :)  If you're following me, I appreciate you.  Thanks for hanging in there with me.  I hope you continue to visit.

Yay! And I had to do the same thing. I didn't want to lose the original purpose of my Words of a Wolfe blog and yet my everyday life is mommy stuff so I too decided to have two blogs. Although I'm not sure if I'm ready to chat about my TTC struggles on my Mama blog yet, I hope to chat more about the mom topics that are more important to me. Now... if I only had more time for both ;)
