The Emmy's and Temple Grandin

My first time ever hearing of Temple Grandin was last December or January of this year when I was sitting on the couch, watching an HBO movie and a preview to the 'Temple Grandin' made for HBO movie came on. I was mesmerized by this preview. It described how this woman who spoke her first words at nearly 4 years of age (she is now 62) was diagnosed with autism by her first doctor and her parents were told she'd never talk and would have to be institutionalized. So little was known about autism… Continue

What if And baby makes 5 suddenly became the Brady Bunch?

I am writing the blog post months before it will actually be published. The reason behind this is simple & highly complicated. The simple part is my little sister is expecting her first child in October. The complicated part is because I already have 5 kidlets any mention of my current condition would totally ruin her experience. Something I don't want to do. I want her first time pg, being a mommy & all to be…

Am I A Good Mother?

I just posted about new moms and how one might consider oneself a "good mom." I know I'm not always a great mom, I have my moments (like when I'm driving the minivan, yelling at the kids "if you don't stop fighting, we are going to get into an accident!!") Yeah, a little spastic.



But if us mommies who blog, can be honest, it isn't always organized chaos, sometimes it's just flat out craziness!



But going back to the good mom thing, I even started a discussion on Blog Frog about… Continue

Highway Robbery...I Mean Health Insurance

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…
