Momma Merit Badges

I think there should be merit badges for motherhood.  You know, like “You just Bathed Your Baby For the First Time Outside the Hospital” and maybe “You found poop on your work pants at 3pm.”  Imagine how sweet that vest would be when you looked back on all the firsts that you survived. I needed […]

Things that Annoy Me

I’m not functioning on all cylinders these days.  And it seems like the least little thing can annoy me to the point of stabbiness.  So, in honor of my annoyed state, I’m going to share with you a list of things that piss me off… in no particular order: 1. You know that saying about […]

Red Writing Hood: RemembeRED

I’m late.  I meant to post this yesterday but I just forgot.  This week’s prompt asked us to describe your favorite fruit or vegetable: the first time you tasted it, where it came from, where you were, what memories it brings. (also, as you’ll note, I cheated and did not describe my favorite fruit. Sorry!) […]

Dietary Drama from Your Momma

I’ve been researching again.  When my pee hole exploration was completed, my doctor informed me that I might possibly have interstitial cystitis and also needed to see a doctor about my kidneys. (By the way, kidney doctors are nephrologists. Which sounds like necrologist. Which may or may not be a real word but totally makes […]

Tantrums and Judgey Strangers

I have a feeling the “twos” are going to be exceptionally terrible at my house. I don’t know who its going to be rougher on, me, J, or Husband.  Because see, we all have tempers.  All three of us.  Mine has been carved and cultivated since the ripe old age of two and Husband’s began […]


When I went to the store to rent a steam cleaner to clean my carpets after the poop fiasco and in the hopes of maybe enticing my child to remain healthy for longer than 24 hours, I had to sign and date a form.  It wasn’t until I saw the date in black and white, […]

Calling all Superheroes…

I love my kid. That is my mantra today. I have to say it every few seconds just to remind myself that I do, indeed, love my kid.  That is not to say that there is any question in my mind that he is adorable and wonderful and brilliant… on most days.  But yesterday and […]

Desperately Seeking Soundtrack…

Yesterday, as I drove back and forth to Augusta and ended up in South Carolina along the way, something not so profound occurred to me.  See, I was knee deep in old cds… ones I’d bought in high school, ones I’d bought in college, and the obligatory mixed cds from my time in Orlando.  I […]

Medical Madness and Bladder Exploration

Today, I had a camera shoved up my pee hole. I knew it was coming.  I have been dreading this day for several weeks now.  But before we get to the part where I experience what an STD must feel like, let’s talk other madness, shall we? Like the fact that I picked my sweet […]

Parenting or Parroting?

We’ve reached a point in J’s little life when the question of who is teaching what to whom is crucial.  I have ceased to know if we are parenting or if he’s just catching on by watching others.  I mean, I don’t remember teaching him how to use a spoon, but he certainly seems to […]
