Welcome to the Parenthood

There is something to be said for parenthood. Well, there are a lot of things to be said about parenthood, but in particular, at two o’clock on Tuesday morning, I was up with J. He must have had a bad dream or something, who knows. All I know is he wanted to snuggle and I […]

I am a Hole-y person

Yesterday morning, after a full night of Googling horrific scenarios that started with “C” and ended with “-ancer,” I set out for my appointment with a Savannah plastic surgeon. Sadly, despite my deep and abiding hatred of all things related to my nose, I was not there for a nose job. Instead, I was there […]

Motherhood by the Numbers

Motherhood is so many wonderful things. It is giggles at bed time. It is snuggling up to someone you love more than life and reading a story. It is wrinkling up your nose at “stinky feet” shoved in your face. It is little plastic animals tucked in strange, strange places, and goldfish crackers falling out […]

We Can’t Have it All…

When I was younger, I thought that women’s liberation was all about, you know, having it all… whatever “all of it” there was. I thought it meant that I could live in the penthouse apartment in New York City and be a high-powered lawyer or doctor or businesswoman. I thought it meant that I could […]

Yet another difference between the sexes…

When J wakes up in the morning and I go in to get him, he laughs and raises his arms to be picked up. When Husband goes in to get him, J looks at him for a second, then lays back down and goes to sleep. What the hell is that about?!

Never Forget…

Today is 9/11, which definitely requires more coffee than I think I have to discuss adequately. Nine years ago, the world as we Americans know it, changed forever. I will never forget that day and I’m sure that none of you will, either.I was living in Orlando, Florida, just out of college. I had a […]

J Balboa, the Sleep-Fighter

You know how a while back J went through a phase where only Husband could get him to sleep? Let’s go back there?? Now neither of us can get him to sleep. The kicker? He sleeps perfectly well at daycare. Apparently they lay down his mat and tell him it’s time for a nap and […]

Just One of Those Days

Today was just one of those days. I got up at 6 and got ready for work. J was still sleeping so I actually had to wake him up to get him ready for “school.” My work load has been steadily picking up at the office so I needed to get there by 8 in […]

Pumpkin Kool-Aid

I drank the kool-aid and it tasted like pumpkin. Seriously. Somewhere, someone decreed that when Labor Day arrives you should do two things: 1) stop wearing white and 2) start buying pumpkin EVERYTHING. Pumpkin coffee. Pumpkin beer. Pumpkin pumpkins. It’s ridiculous. Ridiculously DELICIOUS! As I write this, I am sitting in my house that smells… […]


I had an epiphany yesterday. And you all can laugh at me, but it really caught me by surprise. I am more than a mother. A few days ago, one of my blogger friends posted about singing in her car and when I read it, I realized I hadn’t done that in so. long. I […]
