Today I decided to buy my kids alarm clocks. This wasn't a 'teach my children responsibility' purchase, it was more of a 'Let mommy sleep until 9am on the weekend PLEASE' kind of buy!





My husband could be awake, in…

Droppin' Feeds!

For the past few nights, Squeaker has slept in 5+ hour stretches!  Pre-baby, I did not understand how this could possibly be a good thing, but after months of uncomfortable pregnancy sleep and 10 weeks of being in various states of consciousness–I feel like I’ve won the lottery!  I have found sleep to be one of the most contentious topics in new mom land.  Where does he sleep?  Where do I sleep?  Where does dad sleep?  Is it okay for him to sleep in a chair?  Can he sleep swaddled?  Is he…

Why Sleep Can Be Your Waistline's Best Friend

One of the top New Year’s Resolutions has to be along the lines of losing weight, getting fit and eating healthier.  We make these resolutions with the very best of intentions but then life gets in the way.  Our bosses need us to stay late at the office.  The kids get sick.  We stress about gathering our tax…

What is the Best Position to Sleep in While Pregnant?

Sleeping when you are pregnant is often a challenge because as your belly grows you will become more and more uncomfortable.  Most mom’s find it difficult to find a comfortable position to sleep in and if they are able to find a comfortable position they are up several times during the middle of the night…

I apologize for being MIA on here lately, but unfortunately, my father had a bad stroke and was hospitalized.  It's been pretty horrific to say the least, but rest assured, I HAVE been keeping a mental list of wacky things I've learned.  And here they are:

Freaky Furby

You know how you had that one toy in your bedroom as a kid that kinda creeped you out once your parents turned out the lights and tucked you in for the night?  Mine was a clown who I swear glared at me from his perch high up on my bookcase.  (Special thanks to Poltergeist for that little childhood fear.)  But now that I'm an adult (allegedly anyway), my daughter has…

The Apocalyptic Morning Meltdown

It's never ever easy to be a parent, but man, some days are just harder than others, aren't they?  And when you're dealing with an overtired child, you're pretty much fighting an unbeatable battle, like a kitten trying to hold its own against a wolverine.  Yep, this is exactly how my week began yesterday (as if Mondays weren't bad enough already!)

It had been…

Sleep? Who Needs It?... And What Day is it Again??

Pregnancy is not kind on the sleep cycle. Neither is a two year old child. So the combination of being pregnant and having a toddler has translated into my averaging about 4.5 hours of sleep a night, as of late.  I’ve heard lots of conventional wisdom about establishing an evening routine as a family, so that everyone can get some much needed rest.…

Can I Trade Dreams With You?

 

So last night I had another one of my crazy pants pregnancy dream nights, where I basically felt submerged in a David Lynchian world for the eight hours I was in bed. Now normally, I wouldn’t mind being stuck in a wonder world of red velvet curtains and ambient noise-music, but the dreams I was…

Guilt Free Bedtime Routine



 

Let me start out by saying that I'm in no way claiming to be super mom or that I have it all together because I don't.

I have however, found an idea that works for our bedtime routine. I thought it might be helpful for other parents who also struggle with the challenge of wanting to end your…

A Peaceful Equation

Bedtime with my twinks continues to reach an all-time low around here.  Every flippin' night I threaten to sell 'em off in a 2-for-1 special at a garage sale.  Cause seriously, why did I have to be the one to give birth to the sleepless wonder twins?  I say it's high time I open up a can of 'Serious As A Heart Attack' and take back my nightly mother effin' me-time.  So, here's the equation that I hereby propose:…

GETTING BABY TO SLEEP THROUGH THE NIGHT

I remember the days and nights well.  My baby would not sleep.  Oh, let me clarify.  He would sleep but for about 3 hours at a time.   That meant right when mama was about to drift to that happy place of deep restore-my-sanity sleep, baby would start crying.   I made a promise after I got through that phase I would do whatever I could to help other new parents.  Hence, my new blog http://parentsdesk.com was created. 

This week I'm starting a…

I want to be a good mom, I really do, but I have no idea what I am doing! While I was pregnant I studied parenting literature, questioned other moms, and prepared myself for baby. Lately, people just tell me what to do when I’m…
