12 Blinding Truths of Motherhood

I have said before…maybe not on this site but it’s been said somewhere so it counts…that as soon as I became pregnant with Easton I realized exactly what kind of person I WANTED to be. The blinding truth for me: I was far from it. But I think a lot of people can probably say […]

HOW do you discipline with a straight face??

I heard something the other day that struck me…I can’t remember exactly how it went (because, well that is just out of the realm of my capabilities) but it was something to the effect of ‘being a mother is easy…being a parent is hard’ I realize I’m still at the early stages of this whole […]

The MacDonald’s Newest Member!

HA HA – made ya look. I better stop this game before I become the girl who cried wolf and no one believes me when we actually are expecting munchkin numero dos. But in the meantime, I opt for trickey…if for no other reason than to make people read my blog so I can annoy Christian […]

Easton, Meet Fictitious Jimmy

Please, allow me to paint a picture… Wait, Suz – go get your depends. Ok. Now I’ll paint you a picture. Suzie and James (names unchanged – sorry you don’t get to hide) are probably two of my favorite people ever. James, the lawyer and Suz, the eternal college student. Where he is composed and responsible, she […]

Oh, this is probably going to offend someone…

…but I’m gonna say it anyways, because quite frankly people who get offended easily piss me off. No, that wasn’t it. But maybe those people have stopped reading now. …last chance… Ok, don’t say I didn’t give you ample warning. Now, it’s your fault, so don’t go cry to mom. I was just told by my […]

Up For Debate: Bipolar or Mother?

Ok – all of you who just said bipolar before even glancing at this post, I love you too, but you may now be excused. Thank you. For everyone else…hello and welcome! Today’s topic is really more of a debate…a debate in which I am currently representing both sides (sigh, vote 1 for bipolar). This is […]

He DOES take after me….or is it just a growth spurt?

Since my little man-cub was born, all I’ve heard is how much Easton looks just like his father.   Which I love!   After all, I was once told about how animal babies in general will tend to look significantly more like the father when they are first born, so that the father won’t abandon […]

A fly on our wall…

…would have peed itself when it saw Christian and I dart out of Easton’s room last night like someone had a flame to our heels. Tails between our legs, pure fear and panic etched across our faces. I don’t think either of us have moved that quickly in a long time. Actions like this you might think would be as […]

Easton: 2 Social Life: 0

What happened to my baby that just fell asleep whenever and wherever?! If he was tired, he was asleep. There could be a parade going through our house (or a pair of 13 year-old girls, same thing) and it didn’t phase him. I fear those days are gone. And I think I may be at […]

You tell me: does a mother’s love dilute with each baby?

It really is true when they (the metaphorical group of everyone BUT you) say that you can’t comprehend a mother’s love until you are a mother. I, myself am still overwhelmed at how it can be possible to love someone more and more every day when your heart already feels so full. But, enough of […]
