that is the story of my life. Yes, I said ketchup... kinda like "catch up" but not quite, as in I'm usually "catching up" but often I'm the only one with the list. But it's more like I feel like I'm not quite making the mark. You know, like ketchup isn't quite a tomato. I feel like I'm not quite a good mother, not quite a good doula, not quite a good student, not quite a good wife. Like I'm still working towards what I really want to be, A GREAT VEGETABLE. um... okay I don't really want to be a vegetable (and tomatoes are actually fruit anyway), follow along, it's a metaphor thing.

So in case you haven't realized I'm not real good at this whole blog thing. I'm terrible about making the time to update. So I've decided to make it a new year's resolution to update once a week. Hopefully I'll actually have something interesting to say. Maybe it'll make me more aware of what's going on around me as I'll want to be sure I have something interesting to say.

Well, I did have a client give birth in November. Not ideal, she was induced which ended up with an epidural, but she's happy with her decision and her birth. Baby girl is beautiful and she's nursing great! I think the mom was more informed with this pregnancy and made her decision from that information and not out of fear or ignorance. I just wish I would have gotten there sooner, I may have been able to help her better. But anyway...
