Diary of a Not So Perfect Mom

Any mom that states she is the perfect mom is fooling only herself. For you see, we never are perfect, in others eyes , and , sometimes by our own standards. I like to think I am, but I do so in hopes my children will follow my guidelines for parenting. That's not working. When you are up all night making a last minute costume for school, you think; "wow, I did it, I wanna see some other mom do this!", and it is done, some other mom,… Continue

Family secret

First of all I want to make something really clear:

CHICKEN PARMISAN

FETTUCCINI ALFREDO

MACCARONI CHEESE

DO NOT EXIST IN THE ITALIAN FOOD TRADITION.

 

They have not even been mentioned once.

If you do have anything that looks like an Italian passport, well...for sure, you have never heard of them.

Unless, of…

My Mother's Day

My Mother's Day this year was really wonderful, from beginning to end.  Even when I decided I would do the anti-Mother's Day thing and force my husband to join me in cleaning our downstairs from top to bottom at 8:30 at night; isn't Mother's Day all about not cleaning?  Well, since I never clean, I guess I just thought Mother's Day must be about Opposites Day or something.  JDubbs was a good sport about it, though, even if it was…

Oh, the Bugs

This is our first year at our home on the Lost Coast. And our first taste of the seasons has been memorable.



Fall was splendid. The mosquitoes dwindled and finally disappeared. The gigantic Laurel out back dropped its leaves in great heaps. The light green moss on our wrap-around porch turned bright green with the moisture in the air. And the weather grew colder. Suddenly.



And then with Winter's arrival. Cold. Frigid. Frost. Ice. Snow. Wait, we didn't know it snowed here. Not… Continue

Best Mother's Day Ever!

This weekend will be the best Mother's Day ever (until I celebrate my first as a mother, of course).  Since moving away, I haven't spent Mother's Day with my own mom.  She texted me and my sister a couple of days ago saying that all she'd like this year is a one way ticket to Houston so she could be sure to be here for Baby Munn's birth.  My sister got right online and got her a ticket, and she will be here tomorrow!



I'm so excited! Hopefully this baby will come soon after Mother's…

Reality TV Parenting Redux - The One Week Challenge

I recently and unwittingly hit a parenting nerve.
A post that I wrote a while back entitled "Reality TV: A Parenting Reality" was the most popular and commented-upon piece that I have had to date. Exactly why, who knows, but one can certainly…

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Vasectomy Clinic

often speak about how I do not have the “I’m done” gene when it comes to babies. Whenever I have a newborn, I think, “Yeah, I could do this one more time”. The problem is, I say that EVERY time – whether it’s baby #1 or baby #6.

As a result of my gene-lacking situation, some…

Dodging 40



On March 5th, 1971 I was born. Yep, I just turned 40. All year I was talking about the big birthday bash we were going to have at our house – it was going to be quite the event! But the closer my birthday got, the more the idea of throwing a party became one big headache. So I started saying that I would have a party when the weather improved. When friends and family asked, I…

Acts of Civil Disobedience

My twin boys Aubrey and Erik regularly commit Acts of Civil Disobedience.

No, they are not civil rights crusaders, nor are they proponents of Mohandas Ghandi. They have no idea who he is.

Ambitious 29 Year Old Woman Kidnapped...

And replaced with an unsure mother.



Have you ever felt, by becoming a mom, you have lost all traces of the former person you used to be? Have you ever looked in the mirror at your disheveled hair, clothes stained with baby milk, and dark circles and wondered what happened to that savvy, well-manicured, vibrant woman who used to inhabit the person who now knows more about Bubble Guppies then the economic bubble?



Maybe its the fact that we spend a substantial part of our… Continue

How We Roll

Although spring officially sprung a while ago, we still get flurries that accumulate on top of our mud and melting snow.  Overall, it's still a fairly wintery world out there in Vermont, although the temperatures are rising.  It's been warm enough to bring our kids outside, but there's nowhere to bring them!  Anywhere that is plowed is a parking lot or other potential hazard.  Anywhere that isn't knee-deep in snow is ankle-deep in mud.  But the sun is smiling its yellowy…
