too much information

Posted on February 13, 2014 at 10:47pm 0 Comments

Potty talk is in full swing at our house. We talk pee. We talk poop. We rejoice over every secretion that doesn't soak Austin's pants or land on the floor. We proudly clap as he literally shows us his latest drop off in the potty. It's amazing how dull I have become to such disgusting discussion. And, that's parenthood.

But, nothing quite prepared me for the new public embarrassment of potty training. When you introduce pee pee and poo poo into a toddler boy's vocabulary, there is no…


creative baby proofing

Posted on December 10, 2013 at 9:20pm 1 Comment

When A was a baby, we kind of slacked in the baby proofing department. Sure, we covered the outlets, and we used a baby gate as needed. And, of course, all cleaners and hazardous materials were placed safely from his reach. But, that was the extent of it.

He opened and closed cabinets at his whim, pots and pans all a strew. I cringe looking back at the death trap of a coffee table we had. And, it took me entirely too long to part ways with the various fragile decor around the…


the Christmas tree

Posted on December 2, 2013 at 10:56pm 1 Comment


In 2008, we celebrated our first Christmas as a wedded couple. Less than three weeks prior to that, we closed on our first home. Despite towers of cardboard boxes and completely disheveled home, we still put up our first Christmas tree.

It was beautiful. It was adorned with delicate glass balls gleaming in purples, reds, blues, silvers and golds. Gifts of Christohper Radko and…


it's all about the turkey

Posted on November 25, 2013 at 10:13pm 0 Comments

Frozen turkeys have been haunting my dreams for the last few nights. We are rounding the corner to Thanksgiving, and this is our year. We are hosting. All I keep telling myself is “Don’t screw up the turkey.”

Recipes have been bookmarked, pinned, printed and scattered. I have grocery lists littered around the house. In the last two days, I have already made three grocery runs, elbowing through the aisles for that last can of green beans. Nothing says I’m Thankful like a mob…

Hugs to you Laura!! I remember being so frustrated one day with my son's feed aversions that when he wanted the steamed broccoli I had in my hand I gave it to him.  Lo and behold he ate it!!!!  According to my friend, who is a speech therapist, it is because he could understand the texture.  Who would have thought steamed broccoli would be the kickstarter for him being able to eat!  You WILL find something that works and soon he will be eating everything and your grocery list will get bigger.  :)
