Saying Goodbye to the Baby

This weekend, I disassembled J’s crib. You know, the one I bought at the consignment sale when I was only four months pregnant?  I went out there with a co-worker and right inside the door, there was this white wood crib.  The only way to secure purchasing it was to stand there with my hand […]

How to Raise a Child

Everyone and their grandmother’s second cousin has an opinion on how to properly raise a child.  And those opinions start cropping up the minute you announce to the world that you’re expecting. “Don’t eat too much dairy or your child will have a milk allergy!” “If you want your child to be smart, play Mozart […]

When My Bankroll is Getting Small…

One of my favorite Christmas movies is Irving Berlin’s White Christmas. (Lord help me if they ever try to remake THAT.) I love the silly plot lines, I love the happy endings, and I love the music.  If you haven’t seen the movie, at one point, Bing Crosby’s character is singing to Rosemary Clooney.  The […]

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 […]

Nine Months

Today? My son, you are nine months old. Nine months. Where did the time go, little man? When did you go from a screaming little 7 pound lump to a playful, flirty, 21 pound chunk of a boy? I didn’t think it was possible to love you any more than I did that first time […]

The one where I’m kicking myself for semi-bragging on J’s sleep habits…

I jinxed myself. I mean, that’s really the only possible answer to what happened to me yesterday. It was really a less than stellar Mother’s Day on all fronts. I didn’t get anything… not even a card, but I knew that going in. Husband and I are on a tight budget to try and pay […]

Happy Mother’s Day

This is my first Mother’s Day as a “real” mom. That means so many things to me. First, it means that I understand, in ways I never thought possible, what my mother must have felt so many years ago. Second, it means that I birthed a kid. Seriously. A whole kid. Let’s focus on the […]

I Said I Never Would…

I let my son cry last night. I have sworn up, down and sideways that I would NEVER let him “cry it out” because I can’t stand the sound of him crying. I still feel that way… only I did it. For the past, oh three months or so, he’s been waking up on average […]

Momma Needs Reassuring… Lots of It

There are so many things I worry about now that I’m a mom. In all honesty, I was a worrier before I became a mom and I worried all the way through my pregnancy. One of my friends is an only child and his mother told me that when she was pregnant and all through […]

Hey Jealousy

I have a confession to make. I’m jealous. That’s a bold statement and trust me when I say there are a lot of ways this can go. I could talk about how I’m jealous of my kid-less friends. I could talk about how I’m jealous of fellow bloggers. I could even talk about how I’m […]
