Just five more minutes, Mom

As mentioned before, when it comes to mornings, I am awake and ready to go. This ability served me well in middle school and high school when I was responsible for getting myself awake, dressed and to school (via the bus or my own two feet) on time. I set my own alarm and I…

At night I dream of sleep

There is a note in my baby book that scares me a little. My mother wrote it in the four-year-old section:

       NO NAPS!



The fact that it was in all caps with an exclamation point only underscores the frustration and hopelessness she must have felt around the situation. I mean, children are…

Waking up with bears

It is 6:10 am. Bear number one's alarm goes off. He ignores it and rolls over. About 10 minutes later, I attempt to wake bear number two. He asks me to go away and come back in five minutes.



I'm surrounded by bears.…

#ASKAWAYFriday with Beth from Structured in an Unstructured Life

I started participating in #ASKAWAYFriday and I have enjoyed it. I love connecting with other bloggers and learning more about them. I wanted to participate in this blog hop because I don’t always share a ton of information about myself. I thought #ASKAWAYFriday was the perfect way for everyone to get to know me on a personal basis. For those who don’t know what #ASKAWAYFriday is, you exchange a set of 10 questions for another blogger to answer. Below are 10 questions that Beth asked me and…

Let's learn something: Bad dreams are scary

I remember the first time my son told me about a bad dream. He looked at me with tears in his eyes and said, "I dreamed there was no milk."

Did I immediately scoop him into my arms and get him some chocolate milk? You bet I did (he was only two)!

Since then, my son has told me about lots of bad dreams.…

Establish a Bed Time Routine for Your Child and Calm Their Fears With Monster Defense Spray

Over the last several weeks, I have noticed that my youngest son doesn’t like to go to bed at night.  I am not sure if he is scared of the dark, terrified to be alone, dealing with separation anxiety, if he is just going through a phase where he wants to be independent, or he is afraid of “monsters” hiding under his bed or in his closet.   Every night we go through the same exact routine, my youngest son will throw a fit and he will tell me that he doesn’t want to go to bed.  Each night we…

Bedtime: A drama performed in three acts

Act 1: In which my son gets clean

Synopsis: At about 7:30 pm, we tell our son it is bath time and ask him to go upstairs for his bath. Repeatedly. Our son yells that he is not dirty or stinky and does not need a bath. Or, he says that he is busy playing/reading/doing any activity that is not bathing. When he fails to comply, we either lead him up the stairs…

Routines: A must or a bust?

http://thebreezymama.com/baby-routines-a-must-or-a-bust/

Having two children myself, I can safely say that no two children are exactly alike. In fact, mine are about as opposite as can be. My daughter loved pacifiers and was addicted to hers until age 3; my son had used a pacifier about 5 times total his first couple of weeks after birth and decided it was just not his cup of tea. My daughter was a very…

My Son and His Big Boy Bed

So about 2 weeks ago, my son and his short little legs, finally made it up and over his crib railing. I was dreading the day this would happen because lets see my son is ornery just like me and he doesn't give up until he accomplishes something. Which sometimes includes many hours of frustrating screaming when he can't get his socks on. Well he is pro at putting most of his clothes on now and of course pro at getting out of his crib...(Read More)
