All the Sun For You

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

I’ll Take It!


I can’t put this on FB.

I’ve been frantically selling our baby stuff, it’s fair to say I’m a little obsessed and not at all nostalgic. But today, I sold to a woman buying my maternity clothes for her teenage daughter who’s pregnant. When she told me this, my first reaction in my head was, “I’ll take it!”

We’re done having kids, and so 100% content with that decision. But infertility is always there, always present. It never dies.

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. This made me smile, because I totally get it!

  2. Ha, ditto what My Perfect Breakdown said. It feels like a lifetime ago, but then little things make you realize it’s still there below the surface.

    • I think it always will be just below the surface. Which I think is a good thing, in a way. We never forget our struggle, and on bad days like today (my kids are driving me nuts), it was good to be reminded of the struggle it took to get here.

  3. Yes. I always think that too. HS students here get pregant all the time, and I always wonder if they’d be willing to let me adopt. Stupid IF!

    • It took everything in me not to ask what she’s planning to do with the baby. What the hell? It’s none of my damn business, but I felt compelled to just KNOW, as if MAYBE it was possible. I’m so embarrassed to say that.
