Let’s Call a Dog a Dog

Before I had J, my dog AJ was my baby. He went everywhere with me from the time he was a just a tiny pup: to class at UNC, to any and every vacation, to all the various places I lived.  If AJ wasn’t welcome, I didn’t go. At Christmas, he had a stocking and […]

A Little Change Can be a Very Good Thing

Over the weekend, my “friend” Banks (You may remember him from my failed attempt at sending a Money Tree…) and I went out to pick up Chinese food.  We took J along, obviously, though he still refuses to eat Chinese food.  The restaurant take out put three fortune cookies in the bag and when we […]

This is Life

My mind wanders a bit more these days than it used to. Maybe it’s age or exhaustion or just the wear and tear of single parenting but I like to think it wanders because it is content to meander to and fro. I like to imagine that my mind is curiously happy, exploring the world […]

Thursday Morning

J is a pretty easy going kid. Even on the days when he didn’t want me to leave him at his old “school,” he would sort of pout or put his head down and fake cry.  It was more for effect than being really sad or really not wanting to be at school. This morning, […]

New School

If you ask J how he’s enjoying his new school, he says he loves it.  He describes his days as “great” and both days he’s come home exhausted.  So it seems silly, I guess, that I’m still so nervous about how he’s adjusting. On Monday, when I got there to pick him up, he was […]


I still remember the first time J smiled at me, swaddled in the bassinet that had held me as a baby.  I remember when he first crawled, where he was and where I was.  I remember the joy in both me and my ex-husband when he first toddled back and forth between the two of […]

People tell you babies grow fast and that you’ll blink your eyes and they’ll be grown. But when you’re pacing the floor for the seventh sleepless night in a row with a screaming baby latched onto your breast, you find it so hard to believe. Time moves so slowly then, counted in the seconds it […]

Then The Real World Crashes In…

The first day back from vacation is always a whirlwind.  You feel rested and ready to tackle basically anything so you do… with a smile.  The paperwork gets completed, the files get organized, and everyone has your undivided attention for whatever they need. Then the second day arrives. Today, it’s like my vacation never happened.  […]

Vacation, All I Ever Wanted…

I can’t remember the last time I felt this rested and relaxed. I haven’t been “forcing” myself to write on this blog, I haven’t been pushing myself to do more and be more at work, I haven’t been burning the candle at both ends in any realm of my life and MY GOD it feels […]
