"Restraining Order" Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

Yes, that's right. I call these babies "Restraining Order" Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, because I honestly need to issue an imaginary restraining order ON MYSELF after I make them. They are YUMMY. And even when I cover them up in tin-foil and walk all the way across the house to another room, they call to me, beckoning to be eaten. So I end up ignoring the imaginary restraining order. It's only IMAGINARY, after all.Now, I love white chocolate (which isn't REALLY chocolate but is still so…See More

Do I Have What it Takes to Be a Stay at Home Mom?

For a multitude of reasons, my husband and I have decided it might be best if I become a stay-at-home mom.And for a multitude of reasons, I am excited, nervous, and eager about the possibility of beginning this very new, very important chapter of my life.I’m kind of panicking, to be honest. I mean, I want very badly to be THE BEST SAHM the world has ever known. Yes, I know it’s an impossibility, and that putting that kind of pressure on myself is ridiculous. But really, truly, I want to do a…See More

T Minus 2.. or 3.. or 9

So, these last days leading up to the baby’s estimated due date have been quite the emotional whirlwind for me.Of course, like every other mama on the brink of giving birth, I have been totally anxious to feel the beginnings of labor, or receive SOME sign that the baby has decided to make his way into this world. And like every other wishful VBAC mama, I have been especially anxious, hoping that this baby’s birth might be different from my first baby’s.  In search of giving my son the gift of a…See More

10 Conversations NOT to Have Around a Pregnant Woman

 Maybe I’m just being sensitive.Scratch that. I am DEFINITELY being sensitive.But it seems that lately I have noticed how inappropriate certain conversations are when they are being held in the company of a very pregnant woman. Of course, I can’t exactly tell people to STOP talking about the things they enjoy talking about. But maybe…See More

Sleep? Who Needs It?... And What Day is it Again??

Pregnancy is not kind on the sleep cycle. Neither is a two year old child. So the combination of being pregnant and having a toddler has translated into my averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep a night, as of late.  I’ve heard lots of conventional wisdom about establishing an evening routine as a family, so that everyone can get some much needed rest.HA!!We have tried, I swear.For your amusement, here’s a glimpse at our evening rituals and sleep schedule (if you can even call it that):6:30 pm –…See More

Embracing the Tiger

I’ve got to be honest. I’ve been rather lackadaisical about this second pregnancy. I mean, getting preggers again after only 18 months since Em’s birth has made me feel pretty “been there, done that” about this whole thing. I’ve actually felt quite guilty about my lack of nervousness and anticipation. With a little over 10 weeks to go, that…See More

The Moon and the Stars

 As I have mentioned before, one of the best things about parenting is that it gives me the opportunity to re-discover the wonder of the world through my child’s eyes. Things that I have taken for granted for years upon years now suddenly have become fascinating again, as my daughter realizes and discovers them for the first time.For…See More

No More "F" Bombs for Mama

 Well, folks, the day has arrived. Em has transformed from a person to a parrot, a toddler-voiced echo that follows C and I around the house. Many of our conversations go like this:“Emmy, it’s time for you to brush your teeth,” says I.“Bruthh your TEETH!” says Em.“Make sure to go up and down with the toothbrush, ok?” says I.“Up and down.…See More

Not-So-Great Expectations

Flowers in Our Bellybuttons

 My daughter has a magical way about her. She can get people to do all sorts of things that I would NEVER in a million years be able to get people to do. Like last week, when the three of us made an impromptu visit to my in-laws one late afternoon. Em asked her grandmother, Baba, to help her pick a few flowers from their garden.…See More

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
