Is It Hot In Here Or Is It Just Me?

 

Know the great thing about getting older?  No?  Well, me neither!  There's certainly not a whole lot that I find entertaining about the wrinkles, the aches and pains, the eye baggage, the gray hairs, the sleeplessness, and worst of all, the damn hot flashes!  Seriously, is this the kind of thanks we get for shooting the future of America out of our uterus way back…

The sanpietrino miracle

Everytime we step out for our  little neighborhood walks, me and Princess Giulia hear voices coming from either the end of the street or the corner of the square asking;

"Is she sleeping?"

And my answer is pretty much always the same:

"Yes. She is".

Again.

Bar tender: "Is she sleeping?"

MiR…

The Blessed Alone

I was in the shower this morning and my daughter came in to ask me if I was wearing my bathing suit to the park today. What? That couldn’t have waited 5 minutes till I got out of the shower? And why does she care? I mean, she’s seven. Her idea of matching clothes involves a purple tutu, a green shirt and sparkles in her hair. This is the kid who tells me I look beautiful when I do something outrageous like comb my hair. (I know I have set the bar really low on this one.)
It got…

Sleep Training my 1 year-old!

 



So a little back story, when my son Carter was first was born I never planned on co-sleeping. I had always assumed that he would sleep in his crib just as all babies do. It never even crossed my mind that it was a possibility because all I…

My Big Fat Mommy Screw Up

So yesterday, after being up with Katie past 11pm, being up with her from 2- 3:30am, and then having her wake up at…

The “you won’t be able to do this anymore” list

“You won’t be able to do this anymore!”

Baby Brain

What happens when you only communicate with

early-verbal humans?




My husband’s new gig means he keeps coming home with VIP tickets to all sorts of events. Last month it was the Open air Cinema in Sydney and this month Enlighten in Canberra. Three years ago I would have been ecstatic, and… Continue

Perchance to Dream

Perchance? Fat chance. Sleep is not happening in my household.





The fantasy of a good night's sleep is a distant memory as I consider keeping my eyelids open with toothpicks. Yea, it's that bad.





On a recent work night, I had the honour of being woken up at 1:24am, 3:27am, 4:17am and 5:20am respectively. The last occurrence was the one where I threw in the proverbial towel, made myself a huge pot of coffee and jumped in a steaming shower with hopes that … Continue

The Fitbug - Motivation in my Pocket



I do enjoy my workouts… the second they are over. Granted, there is a definite sense of pride and “I did good for my body today” feeling that follows a good workout. But somehow, that sense of achievement holds no reserve to motivate me for any subsequent workout. I’m on my own. Left to my own device, I would probably never exercise. And really, I only workout because I have to. I wish that I were one of those that could get lost in the endorphin…

A Watched Tooth Never Cuts

Read my blog at http://laurdoone.com

I've told pretty much everyone in the free world, but FYI, Aidan is teething.  However, this child has been teething FOREVER.  Or so it feels like.  We're pretty convinced that the top two teeth are going to come in right about at the same time because we can see the whites just behind the gum.  We've been able to see them for weeks and weeks.



Every night when I put him to bed I say "I think they're…

Do Your Kids Sleep With You?

An article on the Access Hollywood Web site recently got my attention: "Mayim Bialik Talks Unconventional Parenting." I was interested first of all because it was about Blossom. Can you believe that show was 20 years ago? Will that poor girl ever NOT be Blossom??

 

Second of all, it was about "unconventional parenting," and I had to read it because I was sure…

Sleep Deprivation Related to Weight Gain

There seems to be a number of contributing factors to the obesity epidemic our nation is facing. Some of these include excessive caloric intake, decreased physical activity and cultural influences. Now some researchers are investigating whether sleep deprivation may contribute to obesity.



Research presented at the International AC21 Research Festival points out that short sleep duration may lead to obesity through an increase of appetite via hormonal changes caused by the sleep… Continue
