Healthy Tips For Parents This Summer

Since having my children home during the day isn't the norm, summertime can lend itself to being a bit stressful. Arguments over the computer and the t.v.  Can we go here, there and everywhere? "I'm bored!" (My girls have told me they don't need to hear me say 'Only boring people are boring' one more time. I, of course, say 'Then stop telling me you're bored'. Round and round it…

Catching fireflies

What a day. The sun’s shining, the birds are singing, the A380s are flying overhead (I live in the inner west) so I grabbed Crash* and threw a rug on the lawn and we surveyed our sparkling surrounds. In between eating grass my 8 month old soaked in the scenes. He’s been trapped…

Fava Greens and Fava Beans

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.



I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

This Mom is NOT Too Old To Party!

. . . I get to forget there are kids and diapers and housework and work-work and all that other crap. I get to lose myself in the music with the man I fell in love with.

Things This Mom Doesn't Find Time For

Do you ever feel like there's not enough time in the day?

Twenty-four hours. Most days I'm awake for 20 hours a day. That's right. Four hours of sleep! And still, still there's shit I don't get done.

Here's my list of things I don't find time for.

1. I'm so pissed, I haven't seen… Continue

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.

Common Sense Religion

I grew up the opposite of Stacey (Or insert cute blogging pseudonym). My family is extremely religious. My Parents started out as Baptists and swapped over to non-denominational Christians. Don’t confuse non-denominational with non-religious though. We went to church every Sunday and then some. My parents were deacons and treasurers and bulletin writers and other assorted volunteer positions. My parents were Gideons and all that that entails. I went to Sunday School until I taught it. I went…

that light at the end of the tunnel...it may be just a train

My GP said this to me this morning and it's not yet certain whether she is extremely insightful or some type of witch doctor that cursed me because the rest of the day so far has confirmed that the light everyone refers to at the end of the proverbial tunnel is in fact a train about to run us down.…

Spring/summer collection 2011

Now you tell me.

What am I supposed to wear during my last month of pregnancy with the purpose of not looking like a mix between a porn-star (upper part of my body) and a huge egg (down part of my body)?

At the beginning of my pregnancy I was worried to look more fat than pregnant ( I know I did, even though everybody told me I looked gorgeous - all bastards)

So I bought a bunch of large and cute shirts that were very good  at hiding my belly.

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. …
