Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the dreadful toll motherhood has taken on my sleeping patterns. Little by little, I'm starting to realize that this sleep deprivation shit is just a never-ending, vicious cycle that nobody ever REALLY tells you about. Evidently, it never really goes away but just presents itself in different forms along the way, starting from the time… Continue

The week Started out last weekend with J Myster getting another hair cut. We have to tame that mane of his. It gets scraggely sometimes.
But the exciting part of the week was my maternity and Baby B's photography pictures came in and even though these pictures were taken weeks and months ago, I just had to…

I absolutely love icloud! Didn't know I'd use it until I made my little photo collage earlier today with some pics I've taken through out the week and my ipad has a cool app that collages your recent photos. Well I saved the collage I made from pics I've done thru the week and they synced to my photo stream on my laptop and made doing this post soo much easier! So if you have pics to share from the week add them here. This is my week in pics...… Continue

I'm no stranger to taking care of two or three kids at a time. In fact I've been doing it for almost three years. When I was running a home day care it was easy once all the kids got our day's routine down. But its entirely different with your own children. Other people's kids listen and act better than your own much of the time, but when you throw a colicky newborn and a rambunctious toddler in with errands to run, it spells disaster.… Continue

Noah has been using the Preschool Monkey Lunchbox App for about 5 months now and has been enjoying it from the moment I downloaded it (for reference he is 26 months old). It's available on iTunes for only $0.99; the best $0.99 I've ever spent!

If you have a toddler, you have no doubt experienced the terrible twos. The frustrating screams that make you want to punch a wall, or put your head thru a wall. For us the terrible twos seem to be fueled by all the things my toddler is trying to become a perfectionist on. Most of his terrible two tantrums are because he can't get his shoes on right, or he's trying hard to put a puzzle together meant for a 4 year old, but he just had to have because it was… Continue

While you are pregnant especially in the third trimester you feel all sorts of aches and pains, especially if you are not used to carrying around so much weight. I on average stand 5 feet tall and weigh a whopping 98 pounds soaking wet. But pregnancy really can be hard on me especially in the third trimester where I really do feel like a beached whale and just maneuvering to get up off the couch sometimes looks like I'm a turtle on my back flailing my legs… Continue

The second guest post in the September series by Amanda Lehrman from The Momma Files.
Amanda Lehrman has a background in education and is a mother to her son Jack. Please check back here for more educational tips to prepare your little ones for school.
Reading is a skill that starts before the days of school. It begins with babies recognizing pictures in a book and progresses naturally as that child gets older. My son has a book of first works that was introduced to him when he… Continue

I'd like to think I have a handle on my kids. Sure, there are the occasional outbursts in public, sometimes so unbelievable that I pretend I'm the nanny, but for the more manageable ones I'm not opposed to public time outs and major ultimatums. ("If you don't knock it off I'm going to throw all of your toys away when we get home.") Continue
But I'd say that more times than not, I'm in…

So last Sunday around 10am, Hunky Hubs, J myster and I headed out on the open road for our much needed vacation. Destination San Diego! Hunky Hubs thought about a month back that we should do something really nice, fun and relaxing for ourselves before the baby came because we really didn't know… Continue

I have been dying to get my 2 year old her play kitchen. I LOVED my play kitchen as a child and I was so excited to buy it for her. I heard so many mom's getting it for their kids when they were just a year old, but I didn't think it was a great gift yet....she wasn't even pretend playing until 18 months. So I patiently waited to get it for her until her 2 yr old birthday. It sat in boxes for three weeks in my dining room waiting to be put together. When you have two kids close in age… Continue

I remember as a child lying in my room with my covers up to my chin, just staring around at the darkness. I was afraid of the dark for a long long time. Not sure what prompted the monsters in the dark fear, but it was there and still to this day, if I watch a scary movie, my mind moves to the worst possible scenario when I'm turning out the lights for the night.
My son, two, hasn't ever been afraid of anything. Not a lot of toddlers are unless something tells them to be afraid. Many… Continue

I love my son dearly. But sometimes I have to really really hold my breathe because he really really tries my patience. We all know toddler boys love to wrestle and be physically active. I get that and if this mom could do it at 5 months pregnant, I would, but now I have to teach my toddler son to be gentle around the baby bump. He's not really comprehending yet that there is a baby in there. Hunky Hubs and I talk about it and we've shown him pictures of mommy when she was pregnant with him and… Continue

My GP said this to me this morning and it's not yet certain whether she is extremely insightful or some type of witch doctor that cursed me because the rest of the day so far has confirmed that the light everyone refers to at the end of the proverbial tunnel is in fact a train about to run us down.…
