It can be really hard to deal with your kids when they are fussy or having a tantrum. They can grate on your nerves when they keep….on…..crying no matter what. It is definitely frustrating for me when my kids are having fussy days. Like the equivalent of waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Sometimes it is enough to just lock myself in another room for a few minutes (with them in safe places of course) while I get myself under control. All kids have small issues or big issues, but they…Continue

Many parents wonder what happened to the baby that they brought home from the hospital just a few short weeks ago. Once your baby turns two weeks old you may notice a change in your baby’s behavior. If fact, it may seem as if your happy, content baby flipped a switch and is now constantly…Continue

A little over a year ago, I had a momentary lapse in judgment. Yes, I allowed my daughter to get a pet guinea pig, which was clearly not the smartest decision I ever made, considering that we have a dog who likes to eat EVERYTHING under the sun. Miraculously, though, the pig and the pooch have somehow managed to co-exist relatively peacefully up until now. That…Continue

I’ve been crying a lot lately. Normally I would assume it is just PMS, but since I am winding down on the PMS front, I don’t think it is fair to blame my crying jag on PMS. I know it is pre-menopausal related, but it is really hard to call it PM….wait, it is PMS. It’s just that the “M” now stands for something else. Gosh, I feel so much better realizing I still have an acronym to blame for all my blubbering.

This morning Ashlyn requested some toast, so I gladly popped some bread in the toaster and then lathered it with yummy all-natural Blackberry jam. I placed it triumphantly in front of her and she promptly burst into tears. This aggravated me because there was no effort to communicate, she went straight to crying. So in order to help out her future spouse and teach her to communicate she was sent "the chair" until she is done crying and would take the effort to tell me what was so horribly…Continue
The last couple of days have been really hard for me. Hunter’s fit throwing is becoming more intense and we really never know when she will explode or if she will slip a knife off the counter and use it. Colby and I know what we need to do to help her, but it is a small comfort after nights filled with tantrums.
We also got a puppy. Indigo is a beautiful, energy filled, ball of fur, but she is a smart little Aussie left at home with me all day. I’ve never had a puppy before.…

You are no less of a super mom (or dad) should you find yourself feeling so pressured that you want to cry.
In a previous post I share how it’s OK to cry. Life as a caregiver can sometimes bring you to the place of emotional overwhelm and crying is an acceptable way to release some of that
But what happens when…Continue
