Top 5 “When I was a Kid…” Moments

I’m certain that at several points in my adolescence I swore up and down that I would never become one of “those old people” who goes around telling the youth of America how much harder I had it as a kid. Because, really…how annoying! Alas, much the same way I said I would never let my toddler […]

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 […]

My house of Schizophrenics

Over the last year, I’ve learned that everything in my house has a case of schizophrenia. Last night, the GIANT stuffed teddy bear my Mr. brought home right before Christmas apparently also leads a double life as a slide. I know, I wouldn’t have pictured a teddy bear as a slide, either. But, Easton must […]

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 […]

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) […]

Ho-Ho-Holy Sh*t, What Just Happened?

Are we really NINE days into the new year?!? Let me begin by saying this post was started on December 27th. Just 2 days after Christmas. The fact that it is now 2 weeks after Christmas goes to emphasize my point here. And the theme of my blog – “spinning faster”. Just thought I would point […]

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 […]
