Trust the Gut

I may not know what the hell I'm doing half the time with this whole parenting gig, but one thing that I have learned from experience is to trust my gut when it comes to my kids.  (After all, they're the ones who are responsible for making it a lot less flat than it used to be).  So if my gut is telling me that my daughter is, in fact, sick, I'm sure as shit gonna listen to…

Monsters Incorporated

For some time, Bunny has been experiencing a reoccurring nightmare.  She dreams monsters come in our house and eat our entire family, except for her.  She is left alone with no parents, no home, and no place to go.

Bye, Bye Binky

When my little guy turned one I was very adamant that we were going to get rid of all the bottles and binkies in the house. We had been working on getting him switched over to sippy cups so that didn’t seem to be much of a problem. But then there was the binky. I personally loved it but my husband wanted to…

Behind the Bathroom Door

As if I am still 10 years old, it makes me giggle to think that everyone goes to the bathroom. I won’t name names, but EVERYONE goes to the bathroom, myself included. </immaturegiggles>

 

There is little mystery as to what happens in bathrooms; most likely if I am in the bathroom I’m not using my sewing machine to make a draft dodger (yes, this is the max of my sewing machine skills), or designing a chocolate factory with a t-square, or…

Things I've Learned This Week

** If a day ever went by where a kid HADN'T peed on a toilet seat here, I'd swear I was in the wrong house.

** I seriously could not be more unorganized.

** Everybody needs a mental health day.  (Still waiting impatiently to cash in on mine....)

** Homework supervision is totally interfering with my tweeting and…

The Best Christmas Gifts Aren’t Free But You Already Have Them in Your Home

With a young son, Christmas was not a major production although we all strived to make it special. It was important that baby’s first Christmas be filled with special memories we will share with him through pictures and stories when he’s a little older. But of course, our good intentioned gifts were not so well received.

In early November when my son went through a surge of developmental milestones, I upgraded Christmas. He was certainly not going be passive about Christmas…

The Blame Game

When I sat down to blog this morning I was all set to write some funny anecdote about Jenna “frowing” up. Seriously she’s eight and genuinely thinks it’s called frowing up. I can’t bear to correct her; it was a beautiful glimpse of the little girl she still is.

I started perusing the internet and well, procrastinating, and came upon an article placing the blame for teenage obesity on moms, specifically improper toddler/mom bonding.  The author vehemently wondered why all the blame is…

The New Year's Guinea Pig Attack

The older I get, the more I realize that New Year's Eve is totally overrated.  I mean, seriously, what's the point of getting all dolled up to spend a shit-ton of money to fight a bunch of annoying crowds to risk being hit by a drunk driver and to then be disappointed that the night wasn't nearly as fabulous as you'd hoped it would be?  That's why my husband and I made the executive decision many moons ago to just stay home and have our own little family party to ring in the new…

** This ass isn't gonna run itself off.

** You can never ever hug your kids too much.

Is the Jig REALLY Up?

Remember that story a few weeks ago when we lost the mother fucking Elf on the Shelf, and I was all panicked that it might be the last Christmas for believing in Santa in my household?  Well, it saddens me beyond words, but I'm pretty sure the jig is up (at…

You'll See

When people used to tell me, "Get the sleep you can now because you'll never sleep again," I laughed. I now know the kind of fatigue I battle on a daily basis is nothing like the days after late nights at work or cramming for tests in college.  I'd also hear about "mom brain" and how formerly brilliant women have been rendered useless by the theory that pregnancy feeds off brain cells.  I thought that was a myth too until I found myself…

Social Media, Parenting and (Lack of) Common Sense

I was running around Facebook, as I frequently do throughout the day, when I came across a business page running a contest. Nothing odd there, right? Lots of businesses run contests and incentives to increase their traffic and number of “likes”.

Except this one was different. This Facebook page was for a medical practice that caters  to…

I'm Worried about my health

Worriedface

Being that my daughter depends on me fully and I have to be not only her mother I have to be a her doctor and nurse her counselor and a good example of a mom and woman. I have neglected myself through the years. Being a parent means there will be times that your wants and needs will be put aside.

I…

'Twas the Nucking Futty Night Before Christmas

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through our pad,

Every creature was stirring, being exceptionally bad.

The stockings were hung too close to the floor,

And Goatdog was eating each one that he tore.

The twins were bouncing off the walls in their…
