It’s all Momma’s Fault

I took yesterday off work to stay home with my miserably sick kid. And I really took the day off. I didn’t even make the slightest effort to work from home. I never put on work clothes. I didn’t put on make up. I DID take a shower, but mostly because J had a massive […]

Maybe I need to get a bird and name it Stuart…

J has an ear infection and is getting over a stomach bug… so at least that explains the screaming! We started him on antibiotics yesterday and GLORY GLORY HALLELUJAH he slept. A lot. I would have slept more except I kept waking up wondering if I had somehow smothered him in his sleep because why […]

I learned a little something yesterday…

Despite being Friday, yesterday was not quite the stellar end-of-the-week I had desperately hoped for. Instead, let me paint you a picture of my Friday. First, go with me to the wee hours of the morning… 1:12 a.m. to be exact. I was peacefully sleeping in my J’s bed when I was rudely awakened by […]

Over the Hump

Why is it that Wednesday feels SO far from the weekend but Thursday always feels like almost there? They’re only a day apart but it never fails that on Wednesday, I’m moping around the office saying “I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday” only to have the next day come and feel like “Wow! It’s already […]

Hello, Wits End, we meet again…

On Monday morning I called the pediatrician because J was coughing all weekend on our vacation. They told me that without a fever there wasn’t much they could do for him so I should just monitor him and call if it got worse. So I called yesterday after my second night of watching him cough […]

Dear Mary Poppins: I know you’re pretty busy … what with all the British kids… but if you’ll at least hear me out, you might find our home to be the perfect fit for you and your carpet bag (and super cool umbrella). We *really* need some help around here and your name is at […]

Pity Party of one, your table is now available…

I can’t believe that J has *another* ear infection. What is this madness? This is his third (well, fourth, if you count the double one as two separate) ear infection in three weeks. No wonder the poor child isn’t sleeping! Yesterday afternoon I was too scared to even take his temperature because he was so […]

Reasons NOT to take your Six Month Old to work

So I took J to work with me this morning. I think he’s getting too old for that to be a viable option any longer. Below are a few of the reasons why: 1. Because it makes me feel like a million bucks when toting him into the office along with all the necessary items, and […]

What day is it?

Yesterday was such a Monday that I almost forgot today was Wednesday and therefore “Day I meet with Doctor to discuss Workers’ Compensation Claimant.” It caused quite a shift in what I was wearing when I realized it. I hate Tuesdays … or really any day of the week that masquerades as a Monday. It all […]

Lent, the Baptist way

I was raised Southern Baptist. So the idea of Lent is kind of new and strange. I mean, I knew that all my friends would talk about “giving things up” but I didn’t really understand why. Now that I’m an adult and I’ve “altered” a lot of my Southern Baptist-isms, Lent makes a lot more […]
