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. …

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

Affirming Words Can Go Long Way



Clean your room. Study. Go to bed. Cut the drama. Hurry up. Why’d you get a C on that test?

Clean your room. Study. Go to bed. Cut the drama. Hurry up. Why’d you get a C on that test? (I tend to repeat the same phrases when talking to my kids).

However, I’ve discovered that I…

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
