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 […]

In The Trenches

Day three of being home with a sick 9 month old. Rations are quickly dwindling. Easton is still on a strictly liquid diet – lucky kid, he doesn’t have to digest some of my most recent attempts at “breakfast” and “lunch”. I just shamefully caught myself eyeing a jar of baby food for one heartbeat too long. […]

Terrible Twos…Do Those Come Early?? I Mean EARLY

I’m a mess. I have never been one to handle anticipation well. This has not improved with age. For this reason, I hate being tickled, boiling water is annoying and waiting for 5 o’clock is just pure torture. Oh, and when my dad taunted me with “I know something you don’t know” (in the nanananabooboo tone) […]

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 […]

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 […]
