Sandwich Night

“Two nights a week I cook.  Two nights a week he cooks.  Two nights we go out.  And one night is sandwich night”

Do you remember this line from the movie, About Last Night?  This particular conversation was about cooking.  But last night, Colby and I had a similar conversation about sharing the responsibility of putting Hunter to bed.

Kind of Like Groundhog's Day

I've been telling my husband lately that my life is a lot like Groundhog's Day.



Monotonous. Yes. But I'm actually the one choosing to shape it that way, since it keeps everything flowing smoothly and sanely here.



My personal Groundhog's Day is complete with:

* Anticipating hunger by pre-preparing snacks.

* Thinking of meals in as far advance as I can stand, so I don't end up in a hot…

Balance

Parenthood is a balancing act; that cliche is almost too easy.  Yes, there are many balls in the air and sometimes one slips through and crashes to the ground.  But, to keep the metaphor going, doesn't it always come bouncing back?  If one day I just don't have my act together and maybe my kids watch a little more TV than usual, doesn't it always work out that the next day we never turn it on and spend the afternoon taking a nature walk or stumbling upon a used…

What I Want for my Children

Argh! YOU DID WHAT?!



Yes. That's me on many an afternoon. Make that morning. OK, truth-be-told, it can happen at any moment. Today it was the crayon-covered rocker that did me in.



And despite the fact that children are not the behaviors they exhibit, I honestly have difficulty sorting the two when my impatient Aries-anger ignites.



Whew. Deep breath. Calm down. Re-focus. Now move forward.



Yes, having children who are ages 1, 3 and 5 can be challenging. But…

Boob job after having kids?

I'm amazed how many moms would opt for breast implants if they had the opportunity.

And I'm amazed how many moms believe the myth that breastfeeding was the cause for their sagging breasts. Pregnancy and factors like smoking causes breasts to sag, not breastfeeding.

As a breastfeeding advocate, I don't want that myth to be the…

Healthy Tips For Parents This Summer

Since having my children home during the day isn't the norm, summertime can lend itself to being a bit stressful. Arguments over the computer and the t.v.  Can we go here, there and everywhere? "I'm bored!" (My girls have told me they don't need to hear me say 'Only boring people are boring' one more time. I, of course, say 'Then stop telling me you're bored'. Round and round it…

Catching fireflies

What a day. The sun’s shining, the birds are singing, the A380s are flying overhead (I live in the inner west) so I grabbed Crash* and threw a rug on the lawn and we surveyed our sparkling surrounds. In between eating grass my 8 month old soaked in the scenes. He’s been trapped…

Fava Greens and Fava Beans

Sometimes I feel so incredibly small. Swallowed by the sea of information I attempt to swim in each day. The internet does that to me sometimes. Makes me feel even tinier in scope of the big picture.



I'm one of those types of people who keep turning around, mouth agape, ready to try something new that's caught my fancy. And yet, sometimes I don't feel like I'll ever master anything. I love sewing...but don't get around to it often. I love embroidery, but can't remember the last time I… Continue

Do you ever feel like there's not enough time in the day?

Twenty-four hours. Most days I'm awake for 20 hours a day. That's right. Four hours of sleep! And still, still there's shit I don't get done.

Here's my list of things I don't find time for.
