Law Momma’s Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Week.

Sometimes you just have those weeks. The ones where everything seems to go wrong. The ones where you want to call it quits, stay in bed, lock the doors and unplug every phone. Ever. This has definitely been one of those weeks. An “Alexander” week if you will. To be fair, I went into the […]

It’s all Momma’s Fault

I took yesterday off work to stay home with my miserably sick kid. And I really took the day off. I didn’t even make the slightest effort to work from home. I never put on work clothes. I didn’t put on make up. I DID take a shower, but mostly because J had a massive […]

Keeping on the Cloudy Side of Life

Can someone please explain to me why it is that the bad stuff is always so easy to believe? I thought it was bad for me when I was a kid. I’ve mentioned before (I think) that I have exceptionally low self-esteem. So the bad stuff was always really really easy for me to believe […]

This week may be a little different…

I have a busy week. Honest. I’m not just saying that! Today I am over in Columbus for a depo at 10 and a mediation at noon. Then tomorrow I have to take J back to the geneticist in Atlanta. Then Wednesday? Back in Columbus. Why am I telling you this? Because it means that […]

Nine Months

Today? My son, you are nine months old. Nine months. Where did the time go, little man? When did you go from a screaming little 7 pound lump to a playful, flirty, 21 pound chunk of a boy? I didn’t think it was possible to love you any more than I did that first time […]

Maybe I need to get a bird and name it Stuart…

J has an ear infection and is getting over a stomach bug… so at least that explains the screaming! We started him on antibiotics yesterday and GLORY GLORY HALLELUJAH he slept. A lot. I would have slept more except I kept waking up wondering if I had somehow smothered him in his sleep because why […]

Is this Monday? Again?

I say this sort of in jest but also not. My son better have an ear infection or I swear to you… I may auction him off on ebay. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want him to be sick. I just want a reason for why he is suddenly incapable of sleeping longer than […]

Small Stuff you SHOULD sweat

Sometimes it’s the little things that matter the most. You know what I mean, right? If you’re anything like me, you do. I don’t do compliments. I never have taken praise very well because it always seems disingenuous. What I do handle well are little sidebar comments that are said without the speaker ever even […]

Please send Sleep Fairy ASAP

If I were to write the actual post that’s in my head today, it would consist of one word. That word would be in all caps, bold, and underlined. And in really large font. What is that word? I’ll give you a hint… it starts with F and ends with the last three letters of […]

The one where I’m kicking myself for semi-bragging on J’s sleep habits…

I jinxed myself. I mean, that’s really the only possible answer to what happened to me yesterday. It was really a less than stellar Mother’s Day on all fronts. I didn’t get anything… not even a card, but I knew that going in. Husband and I are on a tight budget to try and pay […]
