More kids equals more stuff done at work

Parents develop skill sets that no one talks about. In addition to awesome time management and the ability to function on a lack of sleep, we also have the ability to make up songs on the fly, invent games to distract children while waiting in line and even build super-cool forts out of pillows and blankets.…

How many children lead to happiness?

People love to ask me if I'll have another child. (I try to look at that as a compliment to my awesome parenting skills and not as an invasion of privacy.) My answer is very diplomatic and a little enigmatic, in that we would love a second child if one came along, but we are not currently planning to have one.…

Are men more lonely?

Sometimes when I see my son playing by himself in his room on a Saturday afternoon, I stand in the doorway and ask him a very complex question:



Are you lonely?…

Where have all the babies gone?

There's this weird thing that happens when you get pregnant: Everywhere you go, you see other pregnant people and parents pushing strollers. Granted, those people were always there before, but once you become pregnant yourself - join their ranks - you finally start noticing them on a massive scale.…

Siblings: Love > Guilt

There's the perennial discussion... is it better to be the oldest or the youngest sibling? There are obviously pros and cons to both and it also depends on each individual family, but I think, and my opinion is obviously bias, the older siblings definitely have one thing on the younger siblings. 

 

Older siblings have to live with Older Sibling Guilt (OSG).

 

Being an older sibling myself in all my years of talking to other older siblings, there is not one, NOT…

How to Handle Biting in Young Children (By Stacy Hladek)

I recently spent an afternoon with a good friend, who has a toddler.  While we were talking about parenting she told me her son has started biting his baby brother.  My friend said nothing she or her husband had tried is working.  Her son bit another child at childcare this week for the first time

Biting is a behavior that many toddlers display at one time or another.  It can be something that makes the adults feel frustrated and helpless.  There is hope! 

Whenever a child is…

He's My Baby Brother!

My little brother was born today.  He woke Mom up at three o’clock in the morning because he wanted to come out of her tummy.  I was asleep so I didn’t know he was going to be born today.  When I woke up, Grandma said, “Good morning,” and told me I was a big brother today.  She made my favorite breakfast, yummy waffles with syrup and chocolate milk.  How did she know that was my…

The Family Portrait

 

It's kinda hard to believe, but the Nucking Futs clan has never ever had a professional family photo taken.  Sure, we've had the kids photographed out the yin yang but never with my husband and me.  So this past weekend, we decided to take advantage of the unbelievably gorgeous fall weather and round up our crew for a picture at the beach.

 

Given that…

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…

Confessions of an Older Mom

Okay, so last week my sixth child was  successfully potty trained, right before he turned 3. The big deal? This was the 3rd attempt at it, my attempt; you see it's not that Adam failed the previous times, I his mother who trained 5 before him and had 3 trained by 2, was too tired to stick with the process. He's not the first child to be a delayed potty trainer, his 2 older sisters( my younger girls) were completely toilet…

The Baby of the Older Kids

My fourth installment of Sibling Sunday is about my youngest
step-daughter – the baby of the older kids. She’s about to turn 8 and
was born an Aries – the first sun sign of the zodiac, which compels them
to feel that they should be the first of everything.
