Welcome ICLW sisters ;)

hi, my name is lily. sounds weird cause im called everything else exept my name most of the time, lol.
mommy, hun, mrs. ashley, Izeaah's mom, Will's wife, and other not so nice names, lol lol

i am 34 and a mommy of 6. been married for 10 years and hubby is in the military.

i have a 12 year old with adhd, but who takes my full 1000% attention is our 6 year old. he is currently being tested to see what spectrum of the autism scale he falls into, so far he has been diagnosed with adhd, childrens bipolar disorder, oppositional defiance disorder. daily calls from the principal, teacher and the afterschool program, and daily sobbing moments secretly in the bathroom are my daily routines, lol.

problems with ubby, and military life, my rehumatoid arthritis, severe depression and bipolar disorder, all make for a flavorfull cake, lol

i started this blog in 2007, started again to keep up with it, i love to blog, and love to leave comments. i dont have a grown up and social life since my kids consume my life, so blogland is my escape, lol.

our children 16, 12, 9, 7, 6, 4, this last month has been very hard for me in one more aspect, i have had 6 miscarriages. my last loss has hit me the hardest and i cant seem to be able to have closure, the story will be a later post as to why, but i had an angel baby at 22 weeks, and i just am struggling so much with that particular loss more than the others.
i have had many problems with my pregnancies, my last 4 were premature born between 24 and 32 weeks, and my uterus ruptured with the last 2. i guess because my 24 week made it through might be a reason why my angel of 22 weeks is so close to me.

well i didnt mean to bring you down, just giving a scoop about my whole life ;)

so pull up a chair if you do choose to follow me cause it's an adventorous ride with our family ;)

enjoy some of my virtual triple chocolate chip brownies ;)

  7. I hope you were able to have a Merry Christmas. Thank you for your comment on my blog. I'm so sorry about your miscarriages and the most recent loss. I am a NICU nurse and you must be a survivor to have gone through 4 preemies. I watch parents on the roller coaster ride that is a preemie everyday. God bless you! Happy ICLW and thanks for the brownies!
