The Tale of the Binkie Fairy

I know I quickly alluded to the fact that the Binkie Fairy made a stop at our house a couple weeks ago and I feel like I should expound on that statement with some background and an update on how it went.  In case you haven't noticed from my many, many photographs, my children love their binkies.  We are binkie people.  My children are binkie children and they were binkie babies.  Jax has been sucking on one since the day he was born. …

My Super New Genius Parenting Idea

Ironflower requested a meal the other day. Lovebug asked for more apple just now. Hugmonkey is actually eating the food he asks for these days. Things are freaking weird around here. 

 

My kids have always been lackluster eaters. Not only are they picky, they just don't eat a lot. Even of their favorite foods. After initial anxiety caused by our former pediatrician (who felt that, despite Ironflower's health, height, head circumference and achieved…

Has Your Tween/Teen Been Sexting?

The Skinny Scoop has this question posted: If you have NOT talked to your 11-18 yr. old about sexting yet, is it because: . . .



I was surprised to see that there are so many parents, who like me, are stupid. Really. We're stupid. I too, believed that it wasn't on my child's radar and that she was just too… Continue

The Right To Parent!

What do your children mean to you? Are they the light of your life and the most amazing gift you have ever been given? Why then are some denied the right to parent children of their own. Did you know that surrogacy is illegal in some states for all couples, or that same sex adoption is banned in many states as well?

The importance of clarification

As the mother of three children, I am constantly reminded of the importance of clarification.  I have found that I have to be very clear about what I mean when I say something.  For instance, my idea of clean your room is apparently quite different from the definition that my kids have. To get the results I want, I… Continue

20 More Years of Hard Labor?!?!?!?!

When in doubt, or I should say riding some kind of mini-breakdown, I call my semi-alcoholic mother.  Over the years I have figured out perfect timing before she goes in for the kill--"utter disappointment" is her nickname for me after say, 5 minutes on the phone. But until that point I find a kind of comfort, the imaginary mommy/cookies kind. Not that she was ever that person.



Despite my 15 years of wanting to live in a lovely white house on the beach, instead I have lived those…

The Third Person Insult

 

 

 

Man, I hate it when moms can be so catty.  After yesterday's post when I was reveling in the golden light that shines upon the sisterhood of mommies everywhere, today was…

Defunkifying

We're in a funky stage right now, by which I mean "a stage which puts me in a funk."  The kids are oblivious and happy, but I am less than enamored with their current conditions.  Jax has decided that the art of listening is not high on his priority list and has deemed myself, his gymnastics instructor, his music teacher, and any other adult who tries to corral him into a polite or sedentary state as irrelevant.  No need to listen to them; they're irrelevant. …

It's Time to Examine Your Relationship With Your Children

Don’t you love how nature provides us with a specific time each year to enjoy new beginnings after a long winter of hibernation? Everywhere we look we see evidence of “new life” appearing. Buds on the trees, blossoms on the flowers and the…

A tween's perspective on bullying:

Guest Blogger Mikayla Sez: "Bullying Really Scares Me"



Bullying Really Scares Me



by Mikayla T., age 13



Bullying has to stop. It seems to start when you are a tween and then gets really bad when you are in middle school. In middle school, bullies call people names, push them around and push kids into lockers. I think bullying happens because people don’t understand why other people are different.

When you get to middle school, you start to talk more and not… Continue

Synchronized Screaming, Pooping and other Miscellany

The beauty of having more than one child is the symphonic melding of sounds that often culminates in a concert of sorts. I am talking about the daily aural landscape that is part and parcel of being a parent of more than one, specifically being the parent of twins. When you refine this scenario, clarifying that the twins in question are toddlers boys, and the fact that they have a seven-year-old sister, it becomes… Continue

Things Never Are Dull With Toddlers are they?

So as my son turns two this week, he decided to let mommy know what is ahead of me in the world of toddlerdum and well maybe "boydum" yep, that's a new word, going in my dictionary.  You never hear of little girls putting rocks in their ears or shoving things up their nose right? That just doesn't happen with girls I don't think...…

Raising a Bilingual Child: Go Ahead, You Try It!

Cool, He’s Going to be Bilingual! Well, Maybe Not.

“Oh, wie schön!” was the only thing my mom could say before she choked up and started to cry.

Those were happy tears. I had called my parents in Germany to tell them that I was pregnant. My father’s first words were: “You better teach him German.” Well, maybe it was the second thing he uttered. But he hasn’t let up reminding me about the importance of raising my son bilingually since he was born four years ago. {…

Thrifty Mama Therapy: GNO

Girls Night Out. At my age, it doesn't mean squeezing into tight dresses and hitting the clubs. Really, it means plain and simple - just the girls, and the night involves talking, eating and drinking. Last night, we had an evening planned at a new restaurant downtown, just my 6 oldest and bestest girlfriends. We had been planning it for almost 2 months. Unfortunately the day of, 2 of our girlfriends had to back out. I was bummed, but 4 of us still planned to meet at a restaurant we all love…

Laundry Hell

I have been relegated to Laundry Hell for all eternity. Or at least it seems that way. Perhaps "Hell" is not the place where I find myself. Perhaps it is a Laundry Limbo of sorts; at least with this option there is hope of future salvation. http://bit.ly/h2SqeW
