Wanted to share an update on our current bedtime routine. I am going to call this the 1.5 – 2 year old routine since we have been doing this for quite some time now. But we are really in a good rhythm now with it….

    Eunice - Hello! We have a similar routine, but my 14 month old is inconsistent with brushing her teeth! How did you get yours to brush his teeth? I’ve looked online for tips and sometimes those tips work (distractions, singing songs, choosing her toothbrush, etc), other times, she flat out refuses and I don’t want to create a negative experience or pressure to do this, but I also don’t want to create a bad habit of her knowing she can get away with it. It’s a struggle! Also do you have him brush his teeth in the morning too? Or am I being extra… lol!ReplyCancel

      eat.sleep.wear. - Sometimes Otis doesn’t want to brush teeth and that’s fine. We try during day and at night. He LOVES thte toothpaste so he has always been so curious and wants to brush his teeth. We also buy different brushes to get him hype for it too!ReplyCancel

As I type, the words are blurry from the tears. My heart is broken. And it’s in moments like these that hope seems impossible. The waves of grief, loss, and utter despair hit like a Mac truck. I am not ok. I feel like I am living the…

    Kelly - I could have written this word-for-word and thanks for putting down on paper what is going through my mind right now. We have a little one a few months younger than Otis and I just had my second failed FET a few days before yours. Sending much love your way during this surreal, awful, and crazy time. I’m not sure what’s next for us but I am digging so deep to keep hope alive. ❤️ReplyCancel

    Crystal - My heart is breaking for you and your family right now. I went through similar losses this year. I have a 2 year old daughter through Ivf. I miscarried the remaining 2 embryos from that batch in December. I did a fresh ivf transfer in February that failed. My FET in March was canceled because of covid. We’re planning to do another retrieval soon but I keep postponing it because I am afraid to go through the pain and sadness if it fails. You’re so strong to keep persevering and Otis is so lucky to have such a tough mama in his life. My fingers and toes crossed the last embryo completes your family so you can one day look back and say all of this was worth it. ❤️ReplyCancel
