To bear Boobies or not to bear boobies, that is the question.

The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding: Seventh Revised Edition (La Leche League International Book) Well,

its been quite awhile since I have been in the situation of breast

feeding, with mine now being the ripe old ages of 2 and 5 (and a

week,sniff, sniff), but I am…

Damn You Bree Van De Kamp!

Anyone who has ever read my blog knows that I am a super advocate of

sisterhood. I think that cat fights between women are ridiculous and

that if we all spent a lot more time being real and supporting each

other, life would be so much better for all of us. Why does it always

have to be a competition? My kid does this, does yours? My husband

makes this much money, what does yours make? My house is bigger than

yours. It truly is a…

ADHD, Mommy Specific!

I am having a WTH is going on here day. It has come to my attention,

apparently when you have a moment..you realize a lot of not necessarily

caring to know information, that I have developed a very peculiar way

of cleaning my house. Remember the good old day when you could spend

all day cleaning out your closets?Ahh, and when it was done there was

sense of accomplishment and pride? Remember? You remember....think

hard. Now, it has…

Truthful Tuesday; February 23,2009!

OK, Truthful Tuesdays....once again, we are gathered here to expunge our psyche's of all of this unnecessary bullshit that we've been

carrying with us in tortured silence and not so silent misery.No

judgment, no ramifications, just support and love from those of us who

are exactly where you are....the brink of insanity, the end of our

rope, a not so high ledge. No matter the circumstances, we are with

you. Today, I'd like to confess…

Fleeting Moments of hormone laced Insanity

It's that time again, yes, everyone around me is either having a baby or anticipating trying to have a baby. I know, didn't I just post about

this? Anyways,there are two things that I have come to know as my

truths..they may even be universal. The first is that apparently I am

still on the fence about a third child because no matter how many times

I tell myself, I am done and I want to move on with my life, every

single time one of my…

Mothers; No matter how old our children may get, they will always be our "babies'

Today, I had an amazing realization. I used to hate when my Mom or my Mother in Law would call and ask all kinds of questions, or try to tell

us what to do, how we should be behaving or spending ( rather saving)

our money. It used to drive me crazy, back when I was in my 20's,

before I had my own little precious gems.And now I know, now I

understand fully...Now, I also realize I will be 10 times worse! We…

To have a good friend, you've got to be a good friend

It seems everything we need to know in life we learn in preschool. My 4

year old has been repeating, "Mommy, to have a good friend, you've got

to be a good friend!" No doubt a piece of sage advice bestowed upon her

by her wonderful preschool teacher.Anyways, Bella tends to like to

share these words of wisdom with Mommy. Normally, I say ,"Yes, sweetie.

That is right!" But, this time I actually took the advice to heart and

examined…

In honor of National Marriage week

Apparently last week was National Marriage week. I ,myself, was so deep

in the throes of actually being in a Marriage that it completely

escaped me. Well, to be honest, I never knew there was such a thing.

But to be fair, I think it is a wonderful idea. I mean if we can

celebrate Veterans Day and President's Day, we can surely give some

credit for those of us who have maintained a long and happy marriage,

or maybe I should say those…

Working out the weight Wednesday

Working out the weight Wednesday





Ok, so its come to my attention lately that apparently, I am not the

only Mommy in the world (or even my circle) who is trying to figure out

a way to raise a family, keep them healthy and happy, and ,while doing

so, keep herself in shape. So, I am proposing that Wednesday, the until

now dreaded… Continue

Truthful Tuesday's 2/9/10

Good morning, my lovelies! It is once again that time of the week. The

day that we can come to our safe haven and expunge all of the wreckage

of the week from our souls! Don't be afraid, we won't bite. Just take

your load and dump it here! Happy Tuesday! I'm sure tomorrow will be

better!

So, that being said, here are my 3 (yeah its been that kind of week)

for the day; I wish so badly that my 2 year old could wipe her own

little butt. It's not that I don't like… Continue

Never expect Silence when Children are awake!

I know that it is crazy to expect to have a moment of peace and quiet

to myself. I know that there are sacrifices to be made when you have

children. I am on board with that. I was not so oblivious to think that

my life would remain unchanged. I thought there would be changes. I

knew things would never be the same, but I was not prepared for the

magnitude; the depth and breadth of it all. When they were newborn, all

my time was spend occupying their time. My life… Continue

My first commercial and all I got was this sparkly new hairpin!







My 4 year old daughter has wanted to be a "movie star" since she saw

Eloise goes to Hollywood. Not that I think she really knows what that

means or what it entails but I have convinced myself that I will never

be the shatterer of hopes and dreams when it comes to my girls. If they

want to do it or be it, I'm going… Continue

Truthful/Tell all Tuesdays; Round two!

Good morning and happy Tuesday to you all. It's been a long week of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Here's where Mommies can come to vent and get rid of some of that unwanted weight, metaphorically speaking anyways. Though, the more I think of it, there could very well be a link between carrying the weight of the world and holding a little extra baggage around our middles! But that's another post altogether! LOL Today, we're gathered here to vent and unload. You can comment… Continue

I am so tired that I washed my hands while drying my hair!

Ever have one of those weeks where you are so tired that you can't even see straight? I'm sure, as Mommies, you have all been there. Those nights when you are up all night with a sick child, or feeding a newborn, or if you are really blessed both. Yes, we have all been there. I am not asking for pity:)LOL I am merely sharing the very interesting, albeit scarey, scenario that I experienced a couple days ago in a hotel bathroom . Wow, that sentence sounded way more exciting that what actually… Continue

Truthful/Tell all Tuesdays

Ok, Ladies its Tuesday and ,as I said, today is the day we can all vent "anonymously" if preferred, and get everything off our minds..without judgement:)I will start the ball rolling:

Is it wrong that sometimes I wish I was brave enough to dose my kids with ibuprofin, so they would go to sleep at a reasonable hour without me having to lay down with them?

Sometimes, I really miss my life before I was married or had kids, so much so that I fantasize about who I used to be:)LOL

OK,… Continue

Mom, Dad's a boy, he has a peanut!

"Mom, Dad's a boy, he has a peanut!" What you may ask yourself is my 2 year old talking about? Well, lets just say our 2 year old, like all 2 year olds I know,likes to follow us absolutely EVERYWHERE we go. This includes the bathroom, the shower, the closet... you get the picture, there is no hiding anything from this kid. SO, today I just need to take a second and share some of the Gabi-isms that make her so special. I may even make you privy to some of our Bella-isms. Here are a few from… Continue

Frogs are for soup, Friends are forever!

Today I was reminded if a growing trend in today's world, especially in regards to Mommies. You see, I am fully aware of the fact that, it is near impossible to make real friends as an adult. I know we make acquaintances on a daily basis, but real , honest to goodness friends who you can be yourself with. You know the friends that you can have those heart to hearts with and actually let your guard down without fear of backlash. Those same ladies that you would actually let see you without… Continue

.5 you never stood a chance

Tonight, though I obviously have 107,000 things that I ought to be doing, I have baby on the brain. I think it was the combo of visiting my friend and her new puppy( get your panties out of the bunch , I am not comparing your little miracles to tiny hairy beasts) and all this talk recently of whose pregnant and whose not. Anyways, apparently , I am in that stage of Motherhood where I have 2 perfect daughters and I am undecided about a third. OK, lets' be honest, brutally honest. Let's just rip… Continue

FYI, 4's the new 16!

Have you heard that new saying that 40's the new 20? Well, I don't know who's believing that load of crap but I'm pretty sure its not the 20 year olds and I'm fast approaching the 40 year end of the spectrum and I'm not believing it for a second. So, Oprah..please stop perpetuating this myth. First, there was the Million little Pieces guy and now this. Come on Oprah, just because you are spoon feeding it to us...some things I just refuse to believe. So, to be straight 40 is not the new 20, no… Continue
