Quick!

In just a few minutes I’ll be grating more pumpkin (a pumpkin grater’s work is never done, sigh) so I’m taking the chance to post now. Pray for me that I don’t end up grating part of my finger off like M did last week — that still hasn’t fully healed, poor guy. We’ve finished […]

WordPress and NaBloPoMo Fail

November 27, 2011

4 Comments

I need my own personal fail whale. First, it appears that my Thanksgiving day post didn’t actually post. I’ve posted it again, and now it seems to have a published date of the 24th… so why wasn’t it visible before? Next, after phoning it in for the post on the 25th, I completely FAILED to […]

Thankful Tuesdays: Hooray for my brain

November 22, 2011

6 Comments

Would you believe I almost forgot again that it’s Tuesday?  Luckily, I didn’t.  It may have something to do with the fact that my brain wasn’t distracted by work as it usually is, because my VPN is down so I can’t work. And that’s what I’m going to be thankful for today. No, not that […]

Baby’s first birthday: Who’s the party for?

November 15, 2011

7 Comments

So the other day I got an email from my MIL, a wonderful woman. A wonderful woman who sometimes confuses the heck out of me. The email she sent was to say she’d found a particular high-chair that she thought might be good birthday gift for G, to have at her house for when G […]

A rock and a hard place

November 14, 2011

This makes twice today that I read someone else’s post and was inspired to write my own.  Only this one wasn’t pleasantly wacky and funny.  This one hurts.  And that’s why I’m writing it.  I hope some of you share this, it’s important for these things to be spoken of. First, go read Kate’s post […]

My Life In… Song (part 2)

November 13, 2011

5 Comments

Sundays are heaven at my house, because my husband is awesome, and I am a heathen. During the week, M gets up at 7 with G and I get a blessed hour (sometimes more) of sleep to myself in bed, all alone. This is what he offered to do since he’s not up with G […]

Thankful Tuesdays: It Really Could Have Been Worse

November 8, 2011

Dear G, I’d like to take a moment to thank you.  Last night when you woke up at 12:45 AM, you were very considerate. Thank-you for allowing me to hold you down so that you wouldn’t climb on the headboard.  And especially, thank-you for not screaming bloody murder when I did so. Thank-you for not […]

Swearing – why can’t our kids do it?

November 6, 2011

6 Comments

Right. Let me start off by saying that I have some pretty weird takes on parenting sometimes. I’m sure that once I’ve had to be a parent for a little while longer than a scant eight months, my viewpoint will change drastically. But right now, I have the luxury of not yet having had the […]

Baby-Led Weaning: My Little Woodchuck

November 3, 2011

How many cukes would a G-chuck chuck if a G-chuck could chuck cukes? And a G-chuck would chuck cukes if a G-chuck could chuck cukes. So, how many cukes would a G-chuck chuck if a G-chuck could chuck cukes? We started on the adventure of Baby-Led Weaning when G hit 6 months as he seemed […]

The Other L&O:SVU Issue

October 24, 2011

0 Comments

In my previous post, I spoke of one reason why L&O:SVU may have lost me as a viewer.   Here’s another. !!SPOILER ALERT!! Last week’s episode dealt with a pretty heavy subject, SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome).  The infant who died in the episode did so through no fault of her parents, regardless of what issues […]
