Dear Mary Poppins: I know you’re pretty busy … what with all the British kids… but if you’ll at least hear me out, you might find our home to be the perfect fit for you and your carpet bag (and super cool umbrella). We *really* need some help around here and your name is at […]

Pity Party of one, your table is now available…

I can’t believe that J has *another* ear infection. What is this madness? This is his third (well, fourth, if you count the double one as two separate) ear infection in three weeks. No wonder the poor child isn’t sleeping! Yesterday afternoon I was too scared to even take his temperature because he was so […]

Reasons NOT to take your Six Month Old to work

So I took J to work with me this morning. I think he’s getting too old for that to be a viable option any longer. Below are a few of the reasons why: 1. Because it makes me feel like a million bucks when toting him into the office along with all the necessary items, and […]

What day is it?

Yesterday was such a Monday that I almost forgot today was Wednesday and therefore “Day I meet with Doctor to discuss Workers’ Compensation Claimant.” It caused quite a shift in what I was wearing when I realized it. I hate Tuesdays … or really any day of the week that masquerades as a Monday. It all […]

How did I get here and What Comes Next!?

There should be a map to Motherhood that hospitals give you when you give birth. Just a little road map, tucked into the bag with the seven free samples of formula and the pink and blue striped hats. It doesn’t have to be much, just something that outlines the major points for you. It could […]

Me Time

Today, J is six months old. It doesn’t seem like that’s possible, but apparently it is. So I think it’s appropriate that I talk today about one of the toughest parts of being a mom. Because I’ve been a mom for six months… barely any time at all, but I have already realized how difficult […]

Lent, the Baptist way

I was raised Southern Baptist. So the idea of Lent is kind of new and strange. I mean, I knew that all my friends would talk about “giving things up” but I didn’t really understand why. Now that I’m an adult and I’ve “altered” a lot of my Southern Baptist-isms, Lent makes a lot more […]

The Poop Chair and other Mom-isms

I wonder if my child is going to be scarred for life by some of the things I say. Just how much does his little psyche pick up and carry for a lifetime? For example, if I repeatedly squeeze J’s legs and comment on how he’s a little chunk and I wish he could do […]

Harriet and Alexander

Pick your poison. I had a Harriet the Spy vs. Alexander weekend. I don’t know if you are familiar with either, but Harriet the Spy was one of my favorite books when I was little. I think they later made it into a movie with Michelle Trachtenberg. Regardless, the book was all about a little […]

Valentine’s Day

Husband and I decided not to buy each other gifts today. Why? Because we already got each other the best gift ever. Today is J’s first Valentine’s Day, and in honor of that special occasion, and because I just don’t have a lot to say today, I’m going to dedicate this page to my precious little […]
