About 6 years ago I received a call from someone who I knew a long time ago. I remember the rough time because I was pregnant with my oldest. This person chatted and made several ‘dire’ references. I waited for the other shoe to drop. I was not confident that this person was being truthful. […]
If you ordered something on December 23 and it didn’t arrive on December 24th, and you’re mad– then you’re an idiot. I don’t care if you paid express shipping or not–with all of the myriad of businesses offering free shipping at the ‘last minute’, you have to realize that there’s going to be a backlog… […]
So are you?
I’m of the ‘throw the salt over your shoulder’ and ‘don’t walk under a ladder’ variety.. also the ‘knock wood’… kind of superstitious…

What can I say? We’re busy busy over here! Baby is somewhat sleeping in a good pattern after the first night at home, which is AWESOME! We’ve had help off and on, but not enough to be intrusive. We got flowers, balloons, and a few phone calls and cards. Baby is eating well, everyone […]

You’ve seen it on Facebook- everyone is grateful for something else lofty or fabulous like their spouse/kids/inlaws/job–it all sounds good.. but what about life’s guilty pleasures you know you shouldn’t find so much joy in….who ever says they are thankful for those? Apparently, me…. so….tell me one of yours…
That hilarious moment of discovery by your […]
I’m a total book geek. I was raised on characters like Charles Wallace Murray, Alice in Wonderland, Pippi Longstocking, and Black Beauty. My all time love, however has to be Harry Potter. Other than ‘how to survive on a desert island’, the original tome is the one I would take on a desert island given […]

My mom has long held the ideal that if you could only have your second child first, you’d do much better at being parents. Until I had 2 kids, I had no idea what she meant. Breastfeeding a second baby was easy. Cloth diapering a second baby was even easier. Potty training was easier (although […]
