Great piece. Gone, but not forgotten.
I remember the first time I saw a photograph of a stillborn baby. It was on one of the pregnancy website forums that I had joined for mothers that all had estimated due dates in April 2007. I was pregnant with my very first child, and the image disturbed and terrified me. I didn't understand. [...]

That's a great article! My first two babies passed away shortly after birth due to respiratory arrest due to kidney disease. They are my family. I keep photos up that are reminders for me. It's been 13 & 14 years and as my momma said "You don't get over it, you get through it"

Yep - after 5 kids, I can confirm this is scientific fact!!
1. At two, they can barely talk. At three, they never shut the hell up. 2. At two, they cry. At three, they throw temper tantrums so epic, you become convinced that they are possessed by the devil. 3. At two, they're happy to eat anything you present to them. At three, they eat only three foods (usually consisting of a starch and processed cheese.)

The One Where We Explain How We Road School
We have begun our 11th week of  Road Schooling. When we started out in early January just after New Year, it never occurred to me that this many weeks later, not only would we still be living life on the road, but that, for the most part, we’re enjoying it....
