Yesterday I was so tired and lacking motivation to get out of bed, I decided to stay in bed instead of getting up early and taking a shower before my little monster woke up. Boy, did I pay the price for that decision. Instead of the nice, relaxing shower I usually take while she is sleeping I had a really hot and then really… Continue

So, New Year's is a little different for me this year. I am 4-months pregnant, so while I excitedly see "everyone" sharing their New Year's resolutions, I feel a little… Continue

The kids crept in to wake us up at 6 a.m today, just as they promised.
I'm sure they'd been up much longer, but they know the rules - no one goes downstairs on Christmas morning before 6 a.m.
Soon after, the squeals and oohs and ahhs began. But not for the presents I expected.
The big-ticket items were appreciated, of course. But my son's favorite gift wasn't the Wii game we splurged on. It was a Mario figurine stocking stuffer from Santa. ("It can move its… Continue

A beautiful blogger and great friend of mine wrote a post today about being a fake stay at home mom (during break as a teacher.) She got a lot of well-deserved hits, and I laughed at myself, saying, "I'm going to post where you post, claiming that SAHM is a career." Continue
But, then, I thought, what the heck, self? SAHM is a career.
She writes: As a teacher "for several weeks out of the…

I am all about breastfeeding. My first child I breastfed for a year. My second I only did it for about a month. (I really regret that but I suffered from post partum depression and never even wanted to get out of bed, let alone feed my baby. Thank God for my husband and mother in law!) My third I was able to nurse for about 17 months. I finally gave up because I was pregnant with my fourth, and well, just exhausted from everything.
So now I am proudly breastfeeding my fourth, going… Continue

"Mom! Um, my brother just said a bad word. He was trying to tell me a joke, then he said the 'F' word," is what my daughter came hauling into the living room to tell us yesterday. Hubby immediately called my son into the room, and his interrogation began. My son, of course, said that his sister was lying, and that she just wanted him to get into trouble. Thus the problem any parent eventually faces- catching the real liar. Continue
My husband's method is simple.…

After my initial horrific solo mUm travel experience, I developed a strong 'fuck you' approach towards anyone who even dared look in my direction when Michael cried, however, on my recent international travels, again as solo mUm, my patience and language profanity ability were truly tested!
The story begins, again, as our 36-hour… Continue

Molly, my cute five-month old has an extra chromosome (aka Down syndrome) ..remember? If not, here's her story. Today was her first official day of physical therapy at Hope Haven Children's Clinic & Family Center. Yes, we've been working with them since she was born, but mostly at-home therapy. Today… Continue

As a Christian mom, becoming more and more close to Christ, I can't help but feel a little weird about the way we celebrate this time of year.
The way I grew up was believing in Santa claus. And to be honest it wasn't until I was a little older when I learned the true meaning of Christmas. My kids are young (5,4,3 and 1) but even at these young ages, the 3 older ones know exactly what Christmas is. They are aware that we are celebrating the birth of our lord and savior… Continue

I was leaving my mother-in-law’s today with Thomas and we were saying “bye bye” which is a long process that involves lots of “bye byes” and waving in an attempt to get Thomas to learn to wave. And he DID! He took out his little arm and flapped it back!! Then I squealed (loudly), scared him (oops), and he burst into tears (OMG!). Which made me want to burst into tears. After lots of hugs between my mother-in-law and me, he got over it… but he would not wave again when we said “bye bye.” I’ve… Continue

I know, I know...what would Christmas be without dozens and dozens of homemade cookies? Or batch after batch of Chex mix? And, what about that beef stick in BBQ sauce or your special chocolate cake? It's just too much to ask to pass on all these goodies, just in the name of…

I woke up this morning in a very interesting mood. Wouldn't quite say bad, but wouldn't say good; very much in need of coffee and for the kids to *not* have problems with shoe tying or hair or whatever outfit they chose to wear today- Strike 1, Strike 2, Strike 3. Damnit, I just need to go back to bed.…

Ah, 'tis the season! Treats abound everywhere. Food is the hallmark of celebrating the holidays, and it seems to be everywhere! Even this supermom has to stop and admire fancy Christmas cookies, ponder a cup of peppermint hot chocolate, and seriously consider my own Cinnabon cinnamon roll with an extra side of dipping sauce! What makes these… Continue

I am so excited! My job was eliminated on November 17th! To some this
may come as devastating news. For me, it was music to my ears. Besides
giving me the opportunity to leave a job I didn't like and was
miserable in for the last 4 years, now my dream of becoming a
work-at-home mom is a reality. I simply love my new schedule. I get to
take the kids to school. Then I come home and start working at about
9:00... feet up, tv on, jammies on, laptop on lap. I take… Continue

Jay blew into our lives like a whirl wind. He was my cousin’s fiancé’s cousin (kinda confusing, I know) and we met because my cousin lived in the apartment upstairs from me.
We started talking slowly – my car got stuck in the snow a few times and he would come down and get me out.
Then we started actually hanging out, and the first time he came over, we talked nonstop for 4 hours! It was great. I was actually happy when I was with him, and I felt so… Continue

I was a little snotty with the assistant principal at “K’s” parent-teacher conference last night. The middle school was alive with activity parents and students were all over the school meeting with teachers, signing up for after-school activities and having photos taken for what I don’t even know. I don’t know because none of that activity had anything to do with me or my child.
My child is a beautiful 13-year-old girl who wears diapers, speaks in two-word phrases at most and arrives… Continue

One of the sweetest things “K” does is at bedtime. After we’ve given her a shower, put on her p.j.’s, tucked her into bed and, of course, given her a kiss good night, she will pat the bed next to her, smile at whichever one of us is putting her down, and say “here”. She won’t stop until you lay down next to her.
It’s a tight squeeze on her twin bed with her, me, multiple pillows and a large stuffed Blue doll. Usually my head is resting on Blue’s foot and my legs are hanging off the… Continue
