If I Admit It’s My Fault, Will You Quit Blaming Me?

When J was still a very small baby, maybe five months old, he was diagnosed with reactive airway disease.  After about our fourth visit to the pediatrician in four weeks, my doctor looked at me and “kindly” told me that if there were any way for me to work it so that I could stay […]

I’m Still a Full-Fledged Mother, Even if I Work Outside the Home…

This morning, I sat at my desk and commiserated over the telephone with a dear friend of mine who is the proud parent of a one year old.  She was talking about how hard it is now that he’s fully mobile and pining for the days when she could put him down and know he […]


Yesterday was a long day.  I got to work at 7:30 and worked straight through lunch.  I have two clients in particular who keep me up at night and both of them got bad news yesterday.  I do not like giving my clients bad news. Around 5:30 I left the office and drove straight to […]

Angst into Thanks

Last night, I sat down and typed out an angst-ridden post about being a working (outside the home) mother.  I poured out my fears about raising a latchkey kid, my worries about not being there as much as my mother was, and my complete hysteria about not being “where I’m supposed to be” when it […]

An Apology and a Lesson Learned

Earlier today, I posted about “Working woes.” And one of my favorite readers/commenters/twitter friends made an off-hand comment that it was part of being a grown-up…. and ohmigosh did that rub me the wrong way. When I first read it, I was all “what-EVER.” But I kept coming back to that comment. I kept reading […]

Trials and Tribulations

Oh boy. April is shaping up to be one hell of a month. (What?! Lent is totally over. I can cuss if I want to!) First, this week I will be having my first Workers’ Comp hearing. It’s tomorrow morning so forgive me if I don’t have anything exciting to say until mid-day… and then […]

Let me make this about me for a minute…

First, let me just make it clear that I would chop off my left arm if it would make J feel better. (not my right, I need it, but definitely my left.) With that in mind, I don’t really want to talk about J today. I want to talk about, well… me. And how this […]

Sick babies and *oooh* giveaways!

J is sick…. again. Only this time I’m pretty sure it’s not his ears. He’s miserable and was up all night. The fever means no daycare which has me thinking ahead to my trial week. I don’t know what to do to prepare in case he gets sick that week! Husband can’t miss work so […]
