“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.

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…

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…Continue

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…

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…

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…Continue

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…Continue

. . . I get to forget there are kids and diapers and housework and work-work and all that other crap. I get to lose myself in the music with the man I fell in love with.
