How NOT to be an annoying mom.

Warning: If you dislike hypocrites (I have in fact done most of these things), get offended easily, or use Pinterest as your guidebook for being a mom, you may want to find something else to read. I have noticed a LOT of annoying behavior lately. Maybe it’s the influx of social media…coupled with the influx of sites […]

Side Effects of Teething

All the internet articles in the world can alert you to what to expect when your baby is teething. Runny nose, mild fever, irritability, drooling, loss of appetite, chewing on fingers, chewing on toys, chewing on baseboards..oh wait, now I’m thinking of my dogs. Sorry, Easton. However, the element of surprise is a busy mom’s […]

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 […]

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 […]

How NOT to Spend a Rainy Sunday Morning

Answer: a yard sale. If yesterday were any indication, people don’t like to shop outdoors for your old picture frames and worn out tennis shoes in pouring rain. How odd. Those were REALLY great tennis shoes. They were going for $0.50. People should’ve been all over that. But maybe I’m just bitter. Okay, probably I’m […]

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 […]

I can’t help it if you’re an easy target….

Fortunately for you (unfortunately if ‘you’ in this case are Christian), I almost forgot about this event completely. Almost. But I didn’t! And now I can write about it…aren’t you lucky! Go ahead, do a little happy dance, I don’t judge. …I’m just gonna go ahead and apologize now…I’ve had 2 large cups of coffee […]

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 […]
