This youngest child of mine apparentlylives a very busy existence. I’m beginning to expect that he is sneaking out at night to frequent some swinging night club. Or perhaps he’s hitting open mic night at the local karaoke bar. Better yet, I would be willing to bet that he’s moonlighting as a go-go dancer. No […]
A Very Wet Day…and my special “gift.”
We have been experiencing some very strange weather in these parts as of late. I’m actually quite concerned regarding the mental health of our local weather god, Mister Weather (appropriate name, no?). Something is very wrong. Very, verywrong. We go from a bright, sun-filled sky to monsoon-like winds to torrential downpours in mere minutes of […]
An Alternate Universe?
Today has been a day for the books. Today has been the kind of day where I raise my face to the heavens and cry, “Why!?!?!?” Today has been the kind of day where I realize that the fact hair remains follicly attached to my head must bedue to divine intervention. Today has been the […]
My Prayers Have Finally Been Answered
Shhh. Can you hear that? Yep, you got it. It’s the angels singing, rejoicing a true miracle hereon Earth.And if you listen real closely you’ll hear a whimsical tinkling, porcelain music to my soul. The sound of my son not peeing his pants. Hallelujah! I feel like this moment has been a long time coming. […]
I Spoke (Way) Too Soon.
Okay, folks. Stop the celebrating. Put the champagne away. Set that mozzarella stick down. My victorious mood from yesterday has gone a teensy bit awry. Based on the events of today, I’m thinking that Jack isn’t quite ready tocompletely succomb to the world of the non-diaper wearing. In fact, a few times today I was […]
What has occurred in my household today is monumental. It is a feat of gigantic proportions. It has altered my life in ways that I can only imagine. There are no words to accurately define the vast importance of this beautiful day. Why? Because Jack has finally pooped in the potty. And I’m talking a […]
A new situation
In the event that you are a (somewhat) regular reader of my humble little blog than you are undoubtedly already aware that I have an incredibly sweet, adorable if not head-bangingly frustrating three-year old son, Jack. And in the duration of his short time here on Earth I’ve experienced pretty interesting situations with this kid, […]
He’s gone too far…more potty training woes.
In case you haven’t been following my blog (in which case, you and Ireally need to have a talk)I have been attempting to potty train my little man, Jack, for the past several months. It hasn’t worked. He could care less. I think he actually likes peeing his pants. I’m in big trouble. But,he recently […]
“Mom, can I have a snack?”
This has got to be the most frustrating statement to be uttered out of the mouths of either one of my babes. It starts like this. “Mom, I’m full,” as Avery and Jack look at me from their reserved spaces at the dinner table,barely a discernible drop of food touched on their plates. Me: “You […]
Alright…so this is why I do it.
In case you’ve been following my blog you’ve probably heard me whine a little (okay, a whole lot) about my unpaid stay-at-home mom job. To quickly recap: I love my kids and feel grateful that I get to be home with them…but I sometimes question whether I had a lapse in sanity when I made […]
