Sweet Dreams

First of all, I'm not promoting or discouraging co-sleeping/ bed-sharing. I respect whatever decision any family makes about it! Before I had kids, I never really thought about them sleeping in my bed. Then when they came along, I added it to my list of things to research and decided it was something I was… Continue reading Sweet Dreams

Mom Not-Fails

Last week I grilled hamburgers on the indoor electric grill. Why? Well, it was raining, we have no propane in the outside grill and I'm terrified to use it anyway, so you can just pick one. Anyway, it has a grease tray. The tray was full and I bumped it. Not so bad, except I… Continue reading Mom Not-Fails

Teachers, Listen Up!

The car rider line is the highlight of my days now. According to my husband anyway. He says when I tell him… Continue reading This One Time in the Car Rider Line

Mama Juice

I came across this poem I wrote several months ago, so guess it's time to share it! First, a little background. I've always been a big advocate of breastfeeding. I nursed for 39 months total, and wouldn't change one second of it. Was it hard sometimes? Yes! There were days I felt like a cow.… Continue reading Mama Juice
