There are books scattered around the floor and I tripped over at least four blocks on my way to the kitchen. The dishwasher was full, the diaper genie was full, the trash can was full, the washer was full, the dryer was full, the clothes hamper was full and the refrigerator was… inexplicably … empty. […]

When I Grow Up…

When I was little, I had a lot of dreams. On any given day I wanted to be an actress, a pediatrician, a missionary, a politician, and a whole host of other things I can’t even remember.  I had big dreams.  As I got older, I remember thinking that people who got to travel and […]

You’ll Just Know

When I was pregnant with J, I remember people telling me that I would “just know” when he was hungry or tired or sad or scared. I remember being told that it would just “come to me.” And I’ll be honest, during the first month (or maybe longer) of J’s little life, I wondered if […]


So you may remember back in October/November I was having a lot of health issues. If you don’t remember, well… I was having health issues in October/November.  My original treating doctor made me feel like a looney toon by referring me to a neurologist and all types of other crazy doctors for what amounted to […]


We still rock J to sleep. I know that raises a lot of eyebrows. There are a lot of babies who are younger than J who can just be placed in their crib with a little kiss on the forehead and they happily go to sleep. J is not one of those babies. He wants […]

Something in my Pocket….

I wasn’t in the mood to sit through a mediation today.  In fact, I wasn’t really in the mood to be at work. J wouldn’t go to sleep last night. Every time I’d try to rock him or snuggle with him, he would take his little feet and jab them into my ribs. So then […]

Motherhood Lessons

Before I was a mother, I prided myself on being reliable.  I was never late. I was always there when I said I’d be there and was notoriously tough on people who were late or who had a habit of bailing out last minute.  And then I became a mom. But if I’ve learned nothing […]

I’m a Southerner

If you are not from the South, it must be hard to understand why some people love it so very much.  I know it can seem backwards and silly at times. It can seem like we’re all living with our heads on backwards or our clothes on inside out. It can seem like we need […]

Three Little Birds

Isn’t it amazing how listening to a particular song or artist can just make or break your day?  I mean, I was not in the best mood this morning. It wasn’t a terrible morning, but it’s Wednesday and Wednesdays are just hard days. They are smack in the middle of the week, where Monday still […]

Last Night

There are a lot of things I didn’t get to do last night. I had planned on finding the list of work I got from one of the partners (big deal… can’t find it… sucks to be me). I had planned to drink a glass of wine and watch the Auburn game. I had planned […]
