Posts That Made Me Go BOOM! {9}

I wrote some stuff this week, but I also was reading YOUR stuff.

Here are the super great things that hopefully you didn’t miss, but if you did, I’m giving you the links!

My beautiful friend, Nichole, has been dealing with secondary infertility for over a year and a half now.  It’s heartbreaking, but it’s even harder for her to explain to her children.  Read: Secondary Infertility: The Missing Sibling

It’s Autism Awareness Month, and one of the best posts I have read is by Aunt Becky where she explains to her son that he is not a label.  Read: Heart. Stop. Autism.

Lots of my friends have 2, 3, 4, and even more kids.  But some people, like Kristin, are “one and done.”  Her story of how she and her husband “knew” is touching and beautiful.  Read: The Road to One and Done.

And lastly, my lovely friend Julie wrote about a subject that is HUGE to me (no pun intended…ok, maybe a little intended)–the way clothes are labeled and how we see ourselves.  Read: Today Call Me Large.


And I wrote this on Tuesday at my other gig:  If You Read A Kid A Book…Can You Save Our Country?

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. Thank you so much for the shout-out, Katie! I’m truly touched. I wish I could think of something else witty or heartfelt to say, but I’ve spent almost 12 hours in the car today and my “one” just pooped in her bath. So, I’m pretty much sapped.

  2. Yes to what Kristin said (no pun intended. Okay maybe a little intended).

    Thanks so much for including me in this list of fabulous posts. And today my labels will read, “Why yes, I WILL have a Cadbury Cream Egg. Thanks!”

    Happy Easter to the whole Sluiter Nation.
    With love…
