    It’s lovely getting to know you! Your kids are adorable…what was it like having a baby again after your son became a teenager?

    I think that if you set your mind to it, you can get that autobiography written before you know it. I know I’d buy it!

    Hi Amy, I’m a firsttime visitor to North Fourth Street. Love the name and the meaning behind it! This was the perfect post to read on my first visit. I came over from the SIPB group on FB.

    Not sure you’ll want to check out my blog, I am chronically ill and housebound since 2015, but I do also share my art, faith, childhood memories and other things on there – if you browse the menus you can find non-illness related posts too. Just thought I’d mention it as a trigger warning before you go over and I cause panic. I’m like that with blood. Praise God my illness currently requires no needles or tubes! Eek!

    I am glad you have discovered blogging and are enjoying it so much. I know what you mean. It is a great way to say what you need to get out and to connect with others when you are isolated by your circumstances.

    This blog reminds me of when i was growing up, i lived with my mom, step father and my grandma, i remember being so young and after school she would sit on the porch and wait for the kids to come home then she would take us to the store for snacks and let us play before we had to go in and do homework and stuff.. this blog brings back so many good memories for me so thank you for sharing.

    Thank you for writing this. I love the origin of the name, I did wonder. I love slam poetry, Gilmore girls, Brene Browne and Ted talks too. I really enjoyed reading your post! 😊

    Thanks for sharing about yourself! It was cool to see a look at the person behind the blog! I also love TED Talks and Brene Brown. And while I do measure ingredients when baking, I’m pretty laid back and imprecise about it, haha!

      Aren’t they the best? I havent found too many problems that watching The Gilmore Girls doesn’t help.

    Thank you for taking the time to write this and share it with everyone. It is always lovely to get to know the writers we follow along with online a little bit better. Honestly, I had been curious about the blog name you chose as well! I think I might be motivated to draft a similar post, so thanks for the inspiration. Have a great day.

    Hi Amy, this is lovely. I hate leaving my kids, I could tell you so many stories. I work because I have too, not because I want to. I have driven to work crying before, because of leaving them. I often long for a third, its never going to happen and we can’t afford it.

    I’m super squeamish and I work in healthcare, I see a lot of very ill people but I do actually enjoy my job.

    If you want to write that book, write it. Keep thinking positive thoughts. Its a very long hard road, but honestly what else are you doing in your free time? I write in front of the television at night. Just have to keep telling myself that it’s worth it.. I’m sure yours will be good!

    Well done on your view from home, a well written post!

    I love how your blog got its name. Also there is 12 years (almost) between my sister and I. It made us closer !

      I am so glad you told me that! I always worry about my kids not having a relationship as adults. Thanks for reading, and I’m glad you like how I landed on my blog name. It just without doubt seemed like the right name.
