Shut up, I know it’s not Friday yet, whaddya take me for?! But it IS a long weekend for most North Americans, & even though I’d like to say I did this solely for The Empress ’cause I’m just that frikkin’ giving, (bite me), that’s not the case. My mother recently shared this video with me,…Continue

Just got off the phone with my health insurance provider. Trying to get them to pay *their share* of the homebirth. You know, the one I discussed with them a year ago. The one they agreed to pay 80% of. Well,
let’s just say I’m having trouble calling them a “provider.” They cut a check for less than 40% of the homebirth.
Can you imagine if your partner “provided” for you like insurance companies manage to?
You give a whole lot of what you have to…Continue

Yet another week draws to a close, & with it, the realization that I have passed my 150th post…as a matter of fact, this makes 154, not including my other content. It’s been 173 days since Crazy Town first opened it’s borders to the general public. Obviously I’ve taken my position as Mayor quite seriously…& obviously I need to get a life. But before I do, allow me to welcome…Continue

As I make my way through the minefield of parenting, I have come to realize that there are far too many things no one ever bothers to tell you…BEFORE you have kids. It’s highly possible that these secrets are so closely guarded as to ensure the survival of the species. Whether or not these secrets would have changed my mind on…Continue

So, I have no idea if this is in “poor form” or not, & frankly I don’t much care…at least I’m being honest about it! Yep, I’m “recycling” a post! I am totally & completely burnt out dudes, & what time I did spend on the site this weekend, was spent “revamping” it a little bit, & catching up on some housekeeping chores…including swapping out …Continue

My third child, & second daughter, is turning seven today. As she rejoices in being one step closer to getting out from under me, & having the ability to wear, do, say whatever she wants, I will be rejoicing in all she brings to my heart & my life. You are the burst of fresh air, the whirlwind of energy, the fierce, strong, independent child. You have never needed me the way…Continue

In most homes, school is over, and summertime has begun. On the one hand,
most moms feel grateful that warm weather is here, family fun has begun, and
the stress of the school year is on hold for the next three months. The kids are
ecstatic because they get to run through the yard shooting water guns at their friends,
sleep in and stay up later, and take a break from dreaded…Continue

When we have our babies, it is natural to transform into “mama bear”, stopping at nothing to defend and protect. For the mama who has a child facing additional challenges, this instinct goes into overdrive. Having a child with autism has made me respond to certain comments irrationally. I can be oversensitive – even when comments are said in kindness or without any intention of harm.
That is my disclaimer. If you’re curious about what common…Continue
