When The Time Is Right

There is one thing that someone can say to me that annoys me more than anything else. Usually because of the type of questions that I ask in order to recieve this particular response, it will be coming from my partner. This then usually results in me wanting to scream with frustration as I picture bashing him round the head with a saucepan or other heavy object. What reply am I talking about? ..."When the time is right".



In our five years together, I've heard this MANY times from…

Things I've Learned This Week

** A lovely Valentine's morning can quickly turn to a red and pink poop storm when you're a parent.

** If the smell of your own morning breath is making you gag, you know it's time to brush those pearly whites.

** I always seem to park in the spot where some lazy jackhole has left his unreturned shopping cart.

** Cookie bouquets…

The Dreaded Routine Debate

Ok so it's time I wrote about something that has really affected my parenting. It's something that I know causes a lot of backlash and something people have very strong opinions on. I've been holding off writing this post because of this very reason but I've read some really interesting things this week that has really given me a kick in this direction. If you didn't know I'm talking about routine. The Gina Ford routine to be more precises.…

What Would Mrs. Garrett Do?

Parenthood, we have a problem.  My sweet baby girl has gone off the deep end.  Even though she's only eight years old, I'm seriously considering enrolling her in Maury Povich's boot camp.  Or a chain gang.  Or both.  Cause seriously?  This shit's gotta stop.  The kid has been sent to the principal's office not once but TWICE in one week, and one of those times was on…

Nostalgia

Nostalgia

by Lynn on February 12, 2012

Nostalgia. I don’t know if its hormonal or just something that happens when a small human being comes into your life and touches your heart in spots that quite possibly could have been black before (maybe its just me). But something bizarre happened when my kids came into my life. I became extra, super, cry reading cards in the store, cry when watching Oprah on the treadmill at the gym, cry when driving by the elementary school at the…

When dad leaves, the house just isn't the same

My husband left on a business trip last week - out of pocket, out of reach, out of the country.

I didn't think it would be that big of a deal; I'm a big girl, after all. I know how to take care of myself. I didn't realize, however, that taking care of everything and everyone would be so overwhelming.

The kids. The shopping. The homework. The house. Work. Cat. Dog. Everything. Everything due and overdue, pending and marking time. I tried. I managed. I delegated.…

Ain't Too Proud To Beg

Dear God,

Obviously, I love my kids with every little fiber of my being, but I swear to, well......you, actually, that they're involved in some sort of conspiracy theory to drive me straight to the loony bin.  Seriously, if I didn't know any better, I'd think they'd bought stock in Crazy Town, which is clearly where I'll be residing soon enough.  Any potential…

How I Met Your Father

My husband will hate that I’ve shared our story. I love him, but mostly I don’t care if this bothers him or not. It’s my story too. It’s the story of how we met.

When you are in high school, everyone wants to know when you will get your driver’s license.  When you are in college, everyone wants to know what you are majoring in. When you finish college, everyone wants to know where you are working. When you are working, everyone wants to know if you are dating anyone. When you are…

Today is my 13th Wedding Anniversary!  I can't believe how fast the years have flown by. Look at my little babies!

My husband is an amazing dad. He didn't have kids when he married me but he stepped up and did an incredible job parenting our children.

I'm sure there's  been times over the past 13 years when he asked him self "what the hell did I get myself into"?  

Now that our kids are…

Life Labeled as a ‘Working Mom’

Hi, it’s me standing on my soap box. Yes… again.

Moms make difficult decisions every day: Should I buy the generic diapers on sale or should I splurge on name brand? Breast or bottle? Is my child crying because he really needs something or is he crying because he’s a little fussy? Despite the unsolicited advice and lectures I have endured regarding my…

I’m an Open Book

My name doesn’t describe who I am very well. Jennifer isn’t an adjective.

If names were meant to describe who we are, mine would be: Clumsy, Awkward, Forgetful

Or perhaps something powerful like this: MOM

It would be wrong to call myself clever. Clever implies an ability to problem solve. My attempts at problem solving never result in solutions. For example: I get a D on…

Maybe My Parents Knew What They Were Doing

Remember when you were growing up and you said you'd never ever do to your own children the things your parents did to you?  Perhaps it was a vow you made to yourself in the midst of snot and tears as you slammed the door of your room so hard that it nearly shattered the windows?  Well, my sixteen-year-old self would probably punch me in the face for doing so, but here's me admitting…
