It's late at night. You are about to head off to bed, but before you do, you make a quick stop in your child's bedroom. After readjusting the covers (how do they kicked off every night?) and retrieving various animal friends from the floor, you hear it. It may be quiet at first, but then it becomes an easily identifiable sound. Is your child snoring?…Continue

One of the hardest things for me about parenthood is the constant change. I like a slow, easy schedule that is both flexible and predictable. My mornings need to be quiet. I need to get all my work done before 3. I need to get dressed early or it will never happen. All of these things are not what parenthood is about, and I constantly struggle with getting my head back in the game.
Things are not working for our family right now. Ben is getting older, and Baby Sister is getting older,…Continue

Co-sleeping is a fairly common practice and many parents sleep in the same bed or room with their young baby or toddler. This is a very controversial topic in the United States and most people think co-sleeping is completely dangerous and that it should be avoided. However, as a mom I know how hard it is to be able to get a good night sleep especially…Continue

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!Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue

Sleeping when you are pregnant is often a challenge because as your belly grows you will become more and more uncomfortable.

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:

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…Continue

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…Continue

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…Continue
