Things I've Learned This Week

 

** Naked is evidently the way to go this summer.

 

** As much as I love my husband, I really don't think I'd tackle someone trying to throw a pie in his face.

 

** Chopsticks actually help get my kids to eat their veggies.

 

** My son thinks I'm a car and driver expert.

 

** I am NOT a car and driver…

A Letter to the Liquor Store

 

Dear Liquor Store,



Perhaps you may have heard some rumblings about the impending summer vacation that's about to pounce on the town here any day now. Yes, kids will soon be out terrorizing the streets and pimping lemonade hardcore on every effing corner. They will be changing their clothes 357 times a day, thereby creating even more…

A (Very) Short Story By My Son

(This story must be prefaced with the fact that it was nothing short of a miracle to get my son to write anything in school at all.  His poor teacher had to practically hypnotize him to get any kind of writing topics to emerge from his little brain.  So yeah, this story's about a giant turd, but hey, at least the kid wrote a story, right??!!)

 

 

Once upon a…

How to Keep Your Kids From Murdering Each Other This Summer

So if you're anything like me, you're trying your damnedest to find something for your kids to do so that they don't kill each other over summer vacation.  And that "something" would preferably be an activity that keeps 'em occupied for a long stretch of time, perhaps even long enough for Mama to have a well-deserved glass of wine and maybe even *gasp* take a pee in…

Three Things That Made My Day Less than Stellar

I'm a list girl.  Always have been.  Always will be.

I like a chore list.  I like the focus it gives me during the day and I love, love, love being able to cross things off my list as the day goes on.

I live by a grocery list.  I don't understand how people can go to the grocery store without one.  Unless you have a list in your head of the 3 to 5 things you need, but then again, that's a list.  A mental list?  Yes.  But a list, nonetheless.  Walking through the aisles…

Bra Burning

If you are of the male persuasion, you may want to skip this one.  And if you choose to read, don't say I didn't warn you.

I HATE nursing bras.  I figure that by the time I'm done nursing Elijah, I will have worn a nursing bra for two and a half years of my life.  (Not consecutively.  Cumulatively.)   I've hated them from the beginning, and I hate them still.

First of all, they provide no support.  None.  I'm not exaggerating.  Zero support.  I get it.  Underwire…

New Study Connects Autism to Environmental Exposures

Healthy Child Healthy World, who I blog for because they educate parents to protect children from harmful chemicals, just informed me that a new scientific study linking autism to environmental exposures has rocked the pediatric health care community. That’s important information I want to pass on to you. Maybe your family is impacted by autism, or maybe this information can help prevent future cases of autism.

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…
