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 […]

Is this Monday? Again?

I say this sort of in jest but also not. My son better have an ear infection or I swear to you… I may auction him off on ebay. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want him to be sick. I just want a reason for why he is suddenly incapable of sleeping longer than […]

A Blogging Re-Boot

When I first started blogging, I just wanted to write. I wanted to get in the habit of sitting down at my computer every day and pounding out … something… on the keyboard. Even if it was total crap. Because the truth was, I didn’t think anyone would read it. I mean, sure, I thought […]

Don’t Blink…. it’s not just something people say.

Well then. I’ve figured out the mystery behind the sleepless nights. J has his second tooth coming in. Is it just me, or does everything happen at once for these little ones?? I mean, just a few short weeks ago, I had a stationary child. He stayed put. When I left the room, I left […]

Small Stuff you SHOULD sweat

Sometimes it’s the little things that matter the most. You know what I mean, right? If you’re anything like me, you do. I don’t do compliments. I never have taken praise very well because it always seems disingenuous. What I do handle well are little sidebar comments that are said without the speaker ever even […]

Little Buddy Giveaway!!

CLOSED!!! RANDOM NUMBER GENERATOR TELLS ME THAT KLZ IS THE LUCKY WINNER! I got this crazy email a while back about reviewing the Insignia Little Buddy Tracker. I say crazy because honestly? J is not even nine months old. The only places he goes are places I take him! But here’s the thing… this promoter? […]

Please send Sleep Fairy ASAP

If I were to write the actual post that’s in my head today, it would consist of one word. That word would be in all caps, bold, and underlined. And in really large font. What is that word? I’ll give you a hint… it starts with F and ends with the last three letters of […]

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 […]
