Can I Just Title this post "Untitled?"

There are more growing pains in the Law Momma household and they have absolutely nothing to do with J. These growing pains are creating all sorts of drama, arguments, and the always popular blame game. I’m talking about the growing pains of growing up. And they involve Husband and me. We fell into a pretty […]

Saturday Stressors

So yesterday when I picked up J from daycare, his teacher tells me that he’s moving up to the next classroom. We make small talk about what that means… he has to wear shoes, he’ll transition to sleeping on mats on the floor, he’ll eat from the kitchen at daycare instead of me bringing food… […]

Just FYI

I know that I have a very over-active imagination… but am I the only parent who worries that maybe, just maybe… my son sees dead people? I don’t know what the requirements are, but if I remember correctly, the room gets cold, right? Well, J’s room is always cold. Plus, he blows kisses to people […]

I Still Hate Mayonnaise

I have spent the entirety of my life thinking I hate mayonnaise. As a kid, my mother ordered everything “no mayo” and I guess I got in the habit of thinking mayo = gross. I don’t remember ever actually trying mayonnaise and thinking “this is nasty.” I just remember that everything should come “no mayo.” […]

An Argument I Don’t Want to Lose

Husband and I have this running argument. It’s been going on for about a year now and I keep putting off the conclusion of it for fear of what it means. It goes a little something like this: Me: I can’t wait to see J with his little brother or sister.Husband: I’m not having any […]

This Post is Weak… like my Brain.

I’m exhausted. Well, exhausted doesn’t actually cut it. I was up all night on Sunday. Literally. At 3:30 am, J and I were snuggled up on the sofa watching “Hello, Dolly” starring Barbara Streisand … on mute. And when he finally fell asleep, after screaming for the better part of four hours, he was taking […]

The Party

This weekend was… amazing. And emotional. And, well… amazing. Both my parents and Husband’s parents were in town for J’s first birthday. I went a little crazy with the invites and would totally show them to you here, but they’re pretty much peppered with J’s name so it wasn’t an option. I digress. I went […]

My Son is One Today.

I wrote a birth story for J shortly after he was born. Rather than try and re-create how I felt right after his birth, I just put it up, verbatim. Only the names have been changed. I can’t believe my little boy is one. I can’t believe that this time last year, I was counting […]

Week One of the Pearista Challenge

To me, there is no means of corresponding that is more intimate than pen on paper. Think about it. You get hundreds of emails in a week, maybe more. You get tons of text messages. Sure, they make you smile. They say “Hey, I’m thinking about you right this second.” And that’s great. But think […]
