The park

In April was the first time that I took my daughter to the park. I was impressed at how she let go of me and went to play she ran around and had lots of fun. After an hour and half it happened. Amie started running towards the tire swing before I knew it she was on the floor. The boy pushing the swing asked very concerned if she was ok I said "she'll be fine its ok". I felt bad because the boy looked upset and I was upset because I was thinking Oh crap! The first time i take Amie out to play in… Continue

You have to crawl . . .

Dear Baby Princesses,

I can't believe how much has changed since the last time I wrote.

I suppose it's nothing earth shattering to the outside observer, but to me all of the phases you go through are miraculous. BP2, as of yesterday, you are legitimately crawling! You've been doing the army crawl for a week or two now (we've been addressing you as "inchworm") and it was actually pretty impressive how far you could get with that method when you were determined. (Though every…

5 Things I Wish I Knew Before Becoming a SAHM

It’s the life of champagne wishes and caviar dreams. You’re a stay at home mom. You don’t have to listen to a boss. You can pretty much do what you want when you want. You have all the time in the world to devote to yourself and to your home.  You must be floating on freshly fluffed pillows every morning when you wake up and realize this is really your life.

Reality check.

You can’t remember the last time you had champagne. You have two little bosses who constantly nag…

First flight... and it went as bad as you'd fear!

We flew to my MIL's yesterday with our 4.5 year old and our six-week-old baby, who cried for about half of the two hours we were on the plane. It was most unfortunate!! We booked the flight before we realized that 6pm was her fussy time... Guess what time our plane left? 6:04 pm :( We should have remembered from how my son always cried at dinner time but that was a long time ago! At one point I took her to the bathroom to change her diaper and she actually calmed down so much that I wanted to… Continue

Why My Kids Can't Watch the News

In my past life I used to write about shootings, murders and car accidents like they were nothing. I could have done it in my sleep. The words “gun”, “killed”, and “died”, would roll off my finger tips and lips as if I was singing a nursery rhyme. Even after my first child was born, I used to wait for the big story, a.k.a. a big accident, fire, or other tragedy, to lead off my newscast. Someone else’s heartache was the big story I was waiting for all day just so I could have the best show. I…

Applause, Applause

Dear Baby Princesses,

The sight of tiny hands clapping is more amazing than I every would have imagined.

BP2, I had to document the first time I saw you applaud.  It was a week ago last Thursday, so January 16, 2014.  I had just finished nursing you early in the morning and we were snuggled together on the couch, as we always are once you finish eating.  You were on my lap facing me, leaning back on your Boppy, and your face broke into a huge smile and you just…

Why Nights Out Are So Important

As a stay-at-home mom you obviously spend a lot of time with your kids. A lot. So, when you get to spend a night out without them, it’s a big deal. A very big deal. Sometimes, it’s even better than getting a full eight hours of sleep. In my opinion, it’s actually more important.

I’m not a doctor of any kind, so my advice simply comes from what the crazy people in my head tell me. There’s my disclaimer. I came to this big revelation after a recent night out with a longtime friend. Both…

The Six-Month Mark

Dear Baby Princesses,

Let's hear it for six months!

That's for you, BP2, in case you're confused.  You are now six months old and life has changed considerably over the last few months; it's amazing how much progress babies make in just the first year of life.  In terms of milestones, you've never been a huge fan of rolling over but you're now sitting up a good amount - you still need backup support or some sort of bumper but you can do it for pretty good…

Hello parents

This is my 1st post for the new year. Last year ended on a somewhat sour note for me. During the summer I found out that I was pregnant again but my excitement was short lived when the father once again decided he did not want it. I regretedly made the decided to have an abortion. Even though I wanted the baby but the over whelming since of failure & knowing that once again I could not present my child with a father got the better of me and I made a decision out of fear. However seeing…

SAHM I am & It's Okay

Lately it seems as though I have been bombarded with people asking me if I miss going to work everyday. I know they mean my old job in the formal sense of getting up and having a “normal” routine. But, when they say it like that it sounds like I don’t “work” now. It sounds like I’m retired or something, sitting on a white sand beach having drinks with little pink umbrellas while I even out my tan. I don’t know if it’s something in the water or just a coincidence. Whatever the case, it’s…

What I'm Thankful For

I don't take enough time to be grateful... in fact, usually I'm more prone to feeling like "I need more" instead of "I am so lucky for what I have." So I'm taking a moment to express some gratitude for my truly wonderful life.

Today I'm thankful for:

  • My wonderful husband, who's funny and smart and handsome and supportive and loving. I love him! Meeting him was the best thing that ever happened to me.
  • My sweet, sweet four-year-old, who is such a good boy every…

And the Little One Said . . .

Dear Baby Princess,

You are a big sister!

Baby Princess #2 was born on June 30, 2013.  It comes as no great surprise to me (and probably everyone else) that I haven't gotten my act together to post since then, but of course it has been a wonderful and chaotic time and I'll never be able to share everything that has happened.  I am now back at work and we are all beginning to settle into a routine, so I'm hoping to write a little more often and hopefully catch up…

Regretting tubal ligation

After I had my daughter I had my tubes cut, tied and I'm kind of regretting it.... It's just sort of sad to think I 'll never have my own sweet little baby again...It's kind of a relief to know there won't be any surprises, but I can't help but wonder if I made the right decision....

premature baby

Hi my son was born 8 weeks early. He is 11 weeks now I know he is only 3 weeks corected but I cant help but worry about his development. He has been holding his head well for a while but he doesn't really seem interested in interaction most of the time and rarely smiles.

Some news, I'm pregnant!

I've been dying to share some news with the community: we're having another baby, yay! I'm pretty superstitious about these things so I had to wait until I was out of the first tri to tell you (we had a loss last fall which made me extra cautious about announcing it to anyone).

I'm due on Valentine's Day; our son will be four and a half. We wanted them to be closer but some secondary infertility issues rendered that impossible... in fact we had completely given up on having a second…

I Can Help You

Dear Baby Princess,

This could be our last quiet evening for a while.

At least, that was how I was going to start this post an hour ago, before I went upstairs to change you and you decided to throw a mega-tantrum about the fact that I gave you a pull-up with a monster on it.  After at least 20 solid minutes of tearing your clothes off, crying hysterically and screaming at me about what not to do ("Don't go in my room! Don't wash your hands!  Don't talk!") I…

No kids for the summer...yay?

My girls are spending the summer wih my mom on the west coast so that I can have some "alone" time. I haven't had any "me" time since my husband passed & it had taken a toll on me. Since making the decision to send them to my Mom's, I was excited! I had all these great things I wanted to do: read books, lounge at the pool, go to a couple bars, really get my Mary Kay business going, start dating, etc.

Then the time came when I was alone (well not really alone, my sister was here)… Continue

Being a single parent isn't easy

I became a single mom almost 2 yrs ago & it's something I never thought would happen. I have the most amazing daughters (8 & 4) & I want to provide the kind I life we wanted for them before my husband committed suicide. They deserve the best & while financially it hasn't been easy, I keep trying hoping to make life just a bit easier.

I have a really good job & know that if I could just get on the right track, I can make it work but it's difficult when expenses are… Continue
