Chasing Sleep

My little guy is getting a tooth and he’s not sleeping for more than a couple hours (or less) at a time. This means I am not sleeping at all. *yawn* I’ve tried everything. Anyone know any secrets to settling cranky, teething babies? You’d think I’d never done any of this before but I actually have and all I can […]

More fun than a poke in the eye…

Thursday 1:15 am In case you were wondering what I did all day today, in no particular order… – Read daughter 2,817 books. Okay, it was more like 7. – Briefly considered going to the grocery store. Decided hunger was more palateable – Found daughter slathering herself from head to toe in body glitter gel. Decided there were worse things, […]

The Daymare Before Christmas

It’s the day before Christmas and all through the house, every one of us is miserable, so I turn to my mouse (sorry, I couldn’t resist). Anyway, both kids were up several times last night with various issues and maladies and at one point, around 3am, the baby decided he wanted to play. It wasn’t as cute as it sounds. […]

Your Tummy is STILL Fat

My stepmom recently left a copy of US magazine at my house. I usually reserve my celebrity catch-up reading for the doctor’s office, but having recently given birth, I was very compelled to read about how celeb moms are under such pressure to lose their baby weight and of course, all about their personal dramas of postpartum weight loss. Hah! […]

I Adore This Child

*An Exchange This Morning* 5 yr old: Mommy, can I have some more milk? Me: Can you wait a sec? I have to go to the bathroom. 5 yr old: You’re going pee again? Me: No. I’m going poop this time. Is that okay with you? 5 yr old: (ponders about this for at least 10 seconds) Okay. But hurry […]

Not now…Mommy has a broken neck

As I sit here, I can turn my head in only one direction; left (Fortunately, I can use my computer. There is a God.) It all started early this morning when the devil baby decided to melt down after a rather pleasant time. He’s sick so I guess he’s feeling really crappy and I should have seen it coming. At […]

The price of an attitude adjustment…

I swore I would not go near my blog today because I just have too much stuff to do. Reallly important stuff like packing up and mailing gifts for the nieces and nephews I haven’t seen in nearly two years and cleaning my messy-ass house so I can host a visit from my stepmother which is, in some ways, an […]

“Uh…Mommy?”

No good can come from a statement that begins with “Uh…Mommy?” But alas, I heard it bright and early this morning. It was followed by “There’s big log of kitty-cat throw-up on the patio floor” To which I replied “lolololololololololololololololololol” That’s me laughing really hard. I don’t know why I laughed so hard but it was hysterically funny. To be […]

“My Scene”

Someone gave my daughter a “My Scene” doll for her birthday. They’re kind of like the Barbie version of Bratz dolls, which I detest. I’m just not interested in those ugly, slutty giant-eyed dolls as toys for my five yr old daughter. Maybe when she’s thirty. Or when George Bush learns to pronounce “nuclear.” Seriously…I don’t know if I’m just […]

Teeth

My daughter just lost her first tooth on 12/3. At the risk of sounding completely cliché, when did she grow up? How did it happen so fast? It really seems like yesterday that she was a newborn. It makes me sad to think about how fast the time passes. I always question if I’ve paid enough attention to every moment, […]
