Turn and Face the Change…

I don’t do well with decisions. Not at all. Especially not when the decisions affect not only me, but people I care about. And right now I am in the midst of a massive decision-making crisis.I wish I could tell you all about it and get loads of feedback and weigh the pros and cons […]

Waxing Philosophical (and all that jazz)

I believe in fairy tales. Deep in my soul, I believe that Santa Claus exists and that good things happen to good people. I think the caps of acorns double as fairy hats and that when I leave the room stuffed animals come to life. Maybe it makes me foolish or silly or immature. Maybe […]

Motherhood in the time of Cholera

There is no rest for the weary. Unless you’re male. Then you can get all the rest you want and then some. Let me back up. I am sick. J is sick. Husband is perfectly well. I don’t know if J’s sleeping for the past little bit is because of something we’ve done or because […]

My Son is a Heat-Seeking Missile

I don’t know what to say. Apparently, unlike both his mother and father, my son likes to be very, very warm when he sleeps. I say this because he has always been all types of snuggly. No matter where you put him in a bed, on a sofa or on the floor, the child will […]

I am the Weakest Part of a Sword

My child may never sleep on his own. If you read my blog yesterday, you know that I was all types of geared up for the “Sleep Shuffle” as described by Kim West. I left work, picked up J, told his teachers he was in for a long night and headed home. I made enchiladas […]

Ice, Ice, Baby

I had the time of my life this weekend. Not in a totally awesome cheesy “Dirty Dancing” kind of way, but in an “Oh my God. Seriously? I feel 22 again” kind of way. It was that kind of weekend. And it was AWESOME. Husband and I packed up J and about sixteen tons of […]

Law Momma in the Lap of Luxury

Ahh, luxury. I could get used to this. I left my cell phone at home *by accident* and we’re checked in to the lovely Ballentyne Resort and Spa. Oh My Gosh. Last night? The housekeeper knocked on the door and when I answered she asked if we’d like her to turn down our bed. SAY […]

Did You Say CAKE?

All I have to say for myself is “ugh.” Times a million. Just when things start looking up? Life throws a curve ball. And curve balls make me hungry. This time, my curve ball is in the form of J being sick. Again.  Seriously? Is my kid EVER going to be well for a full […]

And the Gold Medal Goes to….

I am a snot-sucking champ. I kid you not, if snot-sucking were an Olympic sport I swear to you I would medal… I’m just. that. good. A little squirt-squirt of saline, some quick finger action on the bulb… snot extraction success. Honest. If the only way to survive a nuclear holocaust was to snot suck, […]

I am a Dirty, Smelly Blanket

Last night, sometime around midnight, my Mother In Law made an astute observation. You know how Linus has his blue blankie? How some kids hold on to a soft bunny or teddy bear? And how even I had a shredded, stinky crocheted blanket as a baby? We call them “Loveys” or “blankies” or “Teddy” or […]
