First Merry Go Round…

Fat Lips and Scraped Babies

This weekend is not looking great. For one thing, J is still not sleeping. At all. Honestly, last night he was up from 10-12 and again from 1:30 – 4:30 and again for good at 6:30. I feel like my eyes are going to fall out of their sockets. For another thing, when I got […]

I’m Hanging up my Cow Bell

My days as a nursing mother are dwindling to a close. This means two things… one good and one bad. The good? I don’t have to pump at work anymore. And really, pumping at work is the reason why I’m almost done with nursing. At my old firm, I could shut my door, lock it […]

To Sleep perchance to… Sleep

I need sleep. Like yesterday. This move has taken every sleep “skill” that J had (and lets face it… he didn’t have many) and thrown them into a fiery pit of despair. He wakes up every hour. Sometimes twice an hour. And lest you tell me to Sleep Train, or Sleep Shuffle, or Cry it […]

On the Road Again…

Well, I’m back on the road.  Husband, J and I are heading up to Atlanta so I can spend the next few days working out of our Atlanta office and getting to know the rest of the attorneys. I should be more excited, but really? I just want to go to Atlanta and get this […]

Childcare Blues

Finding a daycare is hard work. We were lucky with our Macon day care. They were… amazing. When J “graduated” to the next class, his teacher got as teary-eyed as I did. When we left to move to Savannah, his new teacher made him a book full of pictures of his time there and of […]

And if I don’t get the things I am after………

It’s been a nutty couple of weeks and I really appreciate the fact that you didn’t all just go away never to return. (You didn’t, right?) Sorry for all the dour, whiny posts… but I was feeling rather dour and whiny. But now? Um. Hello? I live at the beach. Seriously. How can you be […]

Giving Thanks… and Giving Back

It just occurred to me, as I get ready to crawl into bed with my son, that he will be 11 months old tomorrow. At 5:23 in the early evening. Eleven months. That is one month shy of a full year, for you mathematically challenged folks… like lawyers. For a while now, I’ve been planning […]

Momma’s Momma on … Momma stuff

I came home from work to find my mother in hysterics. In a good way. Apparently she was giving J his breathing treatment and turned on the television to entertain him. The only “kid friendly” programming she could find was Kung-Fu Panda on HBO… well, I’m assuming that’s what it was. She said it was […]

The "Lazy" days of Summer

Oh my God. I need a freaking massage. And a spa day. No, a spa MILLENNIUM. This has been the weirdest, most stressful, craziest, nuttiest, crappiest, awesomest July in the history of my life. And it’s not over yet, people. I mean, two weeks ago today, I accepted a new job and now here I […]
