The best sleep I’ve ever experienced has happened at church. It was delicious. All warm and cozy. I was out as soon as my head hit the mini-van headrest. No, I wasn’t at a drive-in church. Do they have those? If not, I’m telling you that is a good idea. I was in the church parking lot which I have found makes an optimum place to nap.…Continue

Thankful for a parents-break, as my daughters enjoyed their grandparents for the weekend.

I’ve made a few quilts now, and each one’s always a long endeavor. Much longer than I originally plan. I’m kind of a get-working-get-it-done mind, so quilts are a true test of my patience. You just can’t rush a quilt. And, to make a good one, you can’t just take a few pieces of material. It has to be made of many pieces, lots of stitches, and lots of love.
So, when the house was quiet this weekend, I laid out my Suriname quilt…a work in progress for this past year or so.…Continue

I remember when I found out I was pregnant with baby #3. Yahoo! Wonderful. So excited.
Oh, the commitments to myself. ‘Boy, this time I’m going to stay on top of things. I’m going to do plenty of exercise. Eat healthy. Lots of rest.’ You see, pregnancy #2 was full of rich, dairy cravings,
and with my first child just turning one, our walks were just about as
fast as a snail’s pace at that time. Not super-fat-blasting, if you know

My friend's adorable little guy just had his 1st Birthday, and I was honored that she asked my mom (My Cake Hero) to make the cake. This little guy has a jungle themed nursery, and so to keep with his theme, she wanted a cute little monkey birthday cake, and that's exactly what she got.…Continue

Recently I was in the market to get something unique, cute and perfect for my "not quite" Sister-In-Law for Mother's Day. It was her first Mother's Day (sorta, cuz she's been a step bonus Mom for a few years, but she just had her first baby last Nov.) So Steve and I wanted to get her something really good for her.…Continue

So I've officially been a mother now for a little over a year and am celebrating my second Mother's Day. I've had some time to digest this world of fabulous mommyhood ....and although it comes with "those
days".... it also comes with the most amazing, priceless moments I have
My favorite mommy "firsts:"

I think I’ve mentioned before that I work with babies. Its not a high paying job but its emotionally satisfying. Hopefully soon I’ll find work in my field, but in the meantime I enjoy nurturing the littlest of little ones. One thing I find really interesting about the babies is their names. Names have changed over…Continue

Let me update you on all the baby momma drama that’s going on in our lives at the moment. It’s relatively quiet after the last fiasco. She hasn’t pulled more shizit.
The latest court date was scheduled for last week, but a big case came through and bumped hubby’s case from the docket. Good thing the lawyer told us this before 6 a.m. that morning so I didn’t stay up until 11 p.m. the night before looking for hubby’s 2008 tax return paperwork – or not.

After watching The Baby dance around the kitchen singing her own ridiculously inappropriate version of Funky Funky Fresh…(WORD!), that made me burst out in to ridiculously inappropriate laughter, that I then did a ridiculously dismal job of hiding from her, I realized I was long overdue for another post sharing those wonderfully entertaining moments. And just for those who are new to Crazy Town, the residents in question are as follows:…Continue

A gear blog with eco-sensibilities is something of a paradox.
After all, in the (few remaining) greenest parts of our Earth, the only baby gear you'll see is a simple piece of cloth tied into a sling. And this to raise children with legitimate life skills like hunting and building and cooking from scratch. If the point is to raise a family who stands a chance post-Armageddon, perhaps the rest of us are barking up the wrong tree (before cutting it…Continue
