All the Sun For You

A mom, two boys, a husband, and a whole lot of adventure!

Something Fun!


The internet is a weird place.  I have been fascinated all morning by the “Other Side of the Rainbow” hoax, wondering why anyone would do such a thing.  Then, I find out that this is not new and that this stuff goes on all the time.  I must be super naive – because I had no idea!

Instead of spend any more time on this madness, I wanted to share something precious.

I went out last night for an hour and a half without Matthew – he went with his dad to dinner (in light of the rainbow story that had not been revealed as a hoax yet, I was a little edgy about being separated from him – I even cried as they left).  I had to go to one of those very wonderful, fun, interesting in-home direct-selling parties.  You know the ones?  Where your friend invites you to a fun night of food tasting, or jewelry shopping, etc. and then they try to get you to host a party as well?  FUN….  Not really!  Anyway, this party wasn’t as bad as some of the others I’ve attended and I made my obligatory purchase and came home.  No one ever asked me if I wanted to host a party myself (the answer would have been no).  EXCELLENT!

On the way home, I called B to see how dinner went.

He informed me that Matthew is now blowing kisses.  Honestly, I didn’t believe him.  Matthew does his little pow wow sound (is it politically OK to say that?  I don’t think so, but I don’t know how else to describe it) and I figured maybe his little blown kisses were just an abbreviation of that and not intentional.

But when I got home, Matthew blew me ONE little kiss with a “mmmmwwwaaa!” behind it.  I almost died of cuteness!

He did it all night and has been doing it all morning.  I have a very warm, melted heart right now  🙂

I GOT A VIDEO (well… I got a few videos!)!

Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do. I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

  1. I saw on someone’s blog that it might be a hoax and then went back to the Other Side of the Rainbow blog and thought surely someone wouldn’t go to all that trouble to create a fake blog and story. Blows me away!! BUT…even if it is fake, I’m sure these scenarios do play out in real life and it makes us think a little bit more cautiously. I know it made me remind JJ to NOT TEXT AND DRIVE!!! On the lighter side of your post, oh my cuteness he’s blowing kisses now?!?! That is adorable!

  2. That is adorable! I still don’t really understand why someone would create such an elaborate hoax, but I guess I don’t have to understand.

  3. Oh, I love how he claps afterwards in the first video!

  4. That whole Rainbow thing is crazy- but I have been driving a little more carefully the past few days! Blowing kisses is adorable!

  5. Adorable! This made me very happy. 🙂

  6. How cute is he?

    That is crazy about that blog? But I will say, it did make me appreciate A even more and hug her a little tighter. So I guess it wasn’t all bad.

    But I just don’t get some people.

    • You know, it made me slow down while driving and stop using my phone while driving. Something good did come of it for me (and Matthew). But yeah – crazy doesn’t begin to describe it.

      Thanks! He gets cuter every day. I love watching his personality unfold!
