The Pen Is Mightier Than The Sword

As I have confessed here a number of times, I haven’t always been able to write.  Well, I’ve always been able to write, I just didn’t have any confidence in my writing abilities.  When I was working in the corporate world, if I was required to write a letter, I would procrastinate for days until I made myself sit down at my computer and write.

Biggest Mistake!

I've been writing about my adventures in weaning my almost two year old daughter from da Boob. It's her most favorite thing ever! She gets so excited when I whip that sucker out. She loves it so much that she will volunteer "more boo boo peess mama" (translation - more boob please mama) without any coaching from me. I started the process of weaning her about two weeks ago starting with the middle of the night feedings. Things were going pretty good. By the end of that first week I could say… Continue

Babysitter Woes Continued

I am starting to get a complex.

 

I think that there must be some sort of write up about me on some sort of babysitter/nanny forum that tells them not to contact me or take care of my children.

 

What is the deal!!!

 

I wrote last time about how my husband I haven't been on a date in over two years.  Well it is over two years and still counting.... (Read Here)

 

I have laundry…

Finding Inner Peace~Living the Way Nature Intended

When my mother passed on my world changed forever. I couldn’t imagine that anyone could understand the depth of my grief…until I saw the pain my grandmother, my mother’s mother, was experiencing. I felt the loss of my greatest…

Guilt -- It's A Bitch Alright

 

Kids sure have a way of (figuratively) punching you right in the gut when you least expect it, don't they?  Their unassuming words can wash a blanket of guilt right over you in nothing flat.  And before you know it, you're feeling like the suckiest parent in the world and saving your pennies for the future therapy that your kid will inevitably need thanks to…

Go away Mummy

Have flown back into the asylum that is motherhood and after two days basking in the sunlight, that is leg movement free of a cruising infant, I am surprised at how ecstatic I am to be here. 



I loved my time away, no I don’t think you understand I LOVED it. I had a bath, I had not one but multiple conversations that were not punctuated…

Hubby Dropped the Ball

When I started my journey to wean Izzy a week ago I was anticipating less sleep than I was getting. The first few days wasn't too bad. I was seeing progress so I was more than willing to go through the day more on the tired side as long as I kept seeing improvements. By the fifth night I the lack of sleep was getting to me. Even though Izzy was able to get some sleep I wasn't from spending most of my night in That Blasted Chair. I was irritated and some (okay most) of the frustration was… Continue

SCORE!

Last night was the best one yet. I hope I don't jinx myself. We had the same bedtime routine, milk, snack, diaper change and a story before bedtime. She had a little bit of nursing and was out in about 10 minutes. The only time she woke up was for about 5 minutes around 11:45pm because she was cold. After a little bit of back rubbing and a warm blanket she was fast asleep until 4am.

Choices

This past week I've been focused on one thing. No, that's not entirely accurate. My focus with Izzy has been on one thing. My goal is to wean her completely from nursing. She is turning two the second week of September and I would like for her to no longer be nursing for any amount of time by then. That might be an unreasonable deadline so at the very latest before we relocate to WA in October.…

Things I've Learned This Week

 

** My world is just a series of pee splatters and poo.

 

** It's a true challenge not to laugh when telling your eight year old how inappropriate it is to yell "cocks".

 

** Throwing food can be liberatingly fun.

 

** Pretending to be stupid so you can cut in line is sooooooo not cool.

 

** Some sick a-hole had…

Step Back or Forward?

Last night was my fourth night at weaning Izzy from the middle of the night nursing. On the third night there was no crying or asking for the boob she just had a little trouble falling back to sleep. I was hoping, praying and crossing my fingers that last night would be at least the same or better. I was sadly mistaken. I recently put my foot down to wean Izzy by her second birthday which is less than a month away. The only times she nurses is before bed, before a nap and during the night. You… Continue

Why you should let your kids snack

I am a big believer in snacking.  It all started when I was pregnant with my little girl I've continued to keep up that eating style and found it really works for both of my kiddos.  Less mood swings and tantrums equals a happier family overall and it helps me get them to eat more food groups over the course of the day.



But I know that not everyone is as mad about snacking as I am.  Some people think that it takes away from eating balanced meals and adds a lot of uncounted calories to… Continue

Two More Days...But Who's Counting?

Two more days until the girls go back to school.  Less than 48 hours in a summer that hasn’t been very much fun. 

It has been the summer of RADishes, a three month struggle to help our daughters maneuver through the trials of reactive attachment disorder.  At times, it has been a nightmare.

J is Afraid Of His Room...

I remember as a child lying in my room with my covers up to my chin, just staring around at the darkness. I was afraid of the dark for a long long time. Not sure what prompted the monsters in the dark fear, but it was there and still to this day, if I watch a scary movie, my mind moves to the worst possible scenario when I'm turning out the lights for the night.



My son, two, hasn't ever been afraid of anything. Not a lot of toddlers are unless something tells them to be afraid. Many… Continue

"My House, My Rules" - My Mother's Philosophy

I was just having a conversation with my mother today about her philosophy, "My house, My rules." I have had the privilege of being on both sides of that fence. As a kid growing up in her house, I dealt with having to live by her rules as most of us have while living with our parents. Some rules I agreed with and others I didn't, but it didn't matter if I agreed or not because I was living in herhouse with her rules. Now I'm a mother living in my own home…

High Fives To My Husband

 

Unlike the back-assward days of the 1950s, I, for one, do not always believe that Father knows best.  However, as much as it might pain me, I've gotta give credit where credit is due.  And sometimes, every once in a blue moon, my husband actually comes up with a semi-brilliant parenting strategy.

 

Like many households, getting our kids ready for bed at night…
