January Chat with a Mum: Katie of Hurrah for Gin

It’s 2014!  Hope everyone had a lovely New Year’s Eve and not nursing a terrible hang-over.  If you are, another mug of coffee might just do the trick.  I can’t believe Chat with Mums is now a year old.  I started this little section featuring friends I’ve known for ages, before inviting other mums who blogs and then eventually dads too.

Thank you to all the past mums and dads who have been featured on…

9 Ways Raising Babies Is Like Raving, Baby

So Ibiza has been in the news this week as a number of b-list celebrities jet out for some richly deserved look at me-time.

After I’d got over the envy of the perfect tans (I may be catching the sun on maternity leave, but my bright-white-foot-wide-nursing-bra-strap-marks make my arms look like they’ve been designated laybys by the Highways Agency), I was also forced to face the realisation that now I’m a mum I WILL NEVER GO RAVING AGAIN.

It doesn’t matter that the last…

It's Okay Guys, I'm A Grown Up.

One time, when I was 18ish, I went to a routine doctor's visit for something mundane, I can't remember what...let's go with ear wax build up (nothing traumatic about that right?).  The visit ended with me being hooked up to a heart monitor for 24 hours to test for some kind of irregularity.  Doesn't add up does it?  The reason is that I had such a panic attack the doctor actually thought that my racing heart was associated with something other than my intense…

Is The World Less Safe Than It Was When We Were Kids?

As a child in Phoenix Arizona, not one of the safest cities nowadays, I had free range over a 5 by 5 city block area. To my elementary school I walked about a half a mile down the road by myself grades 1st thru 6th. My grandmother or mother walked with me the first part of the school year in 1st grade, before the second half of the year I was walking it by myself. One of them would wait at the end of the yard after school to make sure they saw me, as soon as they had a glimpse of me, they'd…

Kind of Like Groundhog's Day

I've been telling my husband lately that my life is a lot like Groundhog's Day.



Monotonous. Yes. But I'm actually the one choosing to shape it that way, since it keeps everything flowing smoothly and sanely here.



My personal Groundhog's Day is complete with:

* Anticipating hunger by pre-preparing snacks.

* Thinking of meals in as far advance as I can stand, so I don't end up in a hot…

What I Want for my Children

Argh! YOU DID WHAT?!



Yes. That's me on many an afternoon. Make that morning. OK, truth-be-told, it can happen at any moment. Today it was the crayon-covered rocker that did me in.



And despite the fact that children are not the behaviors they exhibit, I honestly have difficulty sorting the two when my impatient Aries-anger ignites.



Whew. Deep breath. Calm down. Re-focus. Now move forward.



Yes, having children who are ages 1, 3 and 5 can be challenging. But…

All Alone (Part 1)

It's storming outside tonight. Again.



I'm craving sunshine. Yes. This rain-loving, born-in-San-Diegan wants warmth from the sun and natural, bright light.



But, it is still May. One more day anyhow. And another shower can't be bad for the rainforest that surrounds us here. So, I'll just write about last night. When it wasn't raining. When it was surprisingly cold out and the sun was setting beyond the forest's edge.

Mommy's Wine: The Controversy

 

I don't know many women, unless they don't drink at all, that would argue with the fact that at the end of the day a nice glass of wine is like a big hug. Some women stay at home all day, and there is not a break to be had. No matter the age of your children, there is always something: the changing of diapers, clothes, feeding - whether it be…

Cooped Up

It rained all winter. A mix of rain and snow actually. And now that the sun has come out. Spring has arrived. Warmth has freed me from all of the layers.  And I'm feeling awfully cooped up this week.



It's raining again. Today was Day 2. Only. And it verged on the brink of beautiful and then hilarious followed by insane every hour. …

How long is a piece of balloon string? and more importantly what colour?

My first baby boy turned two yesterday. TWO! I can't believe it's been two whole years since I met first met him, coughing and spluttering after being dragged into being. What a blur of love, tears, awe, wonderment and it seems balloon ribbon choices. It's with shame I admit I spent at least 3 minutes discussing the balloon ribbon colour with a long suffering, yet very patient, party warehouse…

Blood Oranges and Sunsets

Last week I was so stoked to find blood oranges at the market. I love blood oranges. Actually, I love most any food that's visually stunning. Looks are a lot for me when it comes to food.



And as it turns out, names are a great influence to our girls.



You see, these… Continue

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

The Last Goodbye

On May 3rd 1992, my son Eric Miller was killed in a one car collision. He was home visiting with family in Louisiana. My family and I visited Louisiana very often. However, when my son began to insist that he spend some time in Louisiana with our family, I reluctantly agreed.

After I received the phone call telling me that my beloved, beautiful and kindhearted son was killed in a car accident; I slowly began to understand why going home was so important to him. It seemed as if I was…

My Precious Angel Of A Child Is Testing Me!

It is inevitable that sooner or later, our "precious angels" will challenge our authority and power as their parents. Little do they know, we are usually always a step ahead and have the benefit of knowing them better than they know themselves...



My recommendations are to not force or use intimidation to "control" their behavior. Remember, even though we are parents, we still don't have the God given ability to "control" another human beings behavior and attempting this with a…
