First by the time you read this, my blog may have it's new look up and ready to go! Jenn over at Munchkinland Designs did it for me and it is exactly what I had in mind. She is fantastic! I'm no longer 567Kate, this blog is now "Dancing in the Minefields." A post is coming next week explaining that change. :)
Okay, yes. I am on hiatus. But I had to link up with Fabulous but Evil and Mrs. Monologues today for True Life! I never intended this blog to be a Mommy blog, but whoa baby. There are definite times when it is. I have two kids so...it is what it is. :)
I have two beautiful kiddos:http://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gif
Trace is 10 months old and the sweetest baby. He has pretty severe acid reflux, but as long as we are careful with his food and keep him on his Zantac regimen, it's pretty controlled.
Some of my favorite Trace posts...

Rory is almost 2 and a half and she is a spit fire. She's full of personality and always energetic and excited. She loves to dance and sing and makes me infinitely happy. (And she is named after Gilmore Girls! :))http://www.blogger.com/img/blahttp://www.blogger.com/img/blank.gifnk.gif

Mom Guilt sucks.
I should tell you a little bit about my parenting style...
Both my kids were c-section. Trace was scheduled, Rory was not.
Both kids are formula fed babies. I am naturally unable to breast feed. I'm pretty sensitive about it and I get so angry when people rip on formula feeding.
I use disposable diapers.
I am a stay at home full time working mom. I own a dance studio and my kids go with me.
I used Babywise to sleep train both my kids. It worked wonders for us, but I understand it doesn't work for everyone.
We go to church every Saturday night or Sunday morning. We are Methodist by affiliation, Christian by choice.
I will never judge your decisions or speak poorly of your choices, unless I think you are straight up maliciously harming your child. ;) Please respect our decisions as well. Healthy discussion is fine, but being rude is unacceptable around these parts!
That's us in the nutshell! We're one big crazy mess most of the time but we laugh a lot, love a lot and are thankful every day for the blessings we've been given. Dave and I know that our children are a gift and we don't take them for granted for one second! :)
P.S. I usually 4-5 times a week, but am on a little break right now getting ready for dance to start again!
