Yes, we all agree that 2016, in a nutshell and as a nation, sorta sucked ass. But my family had a nice end to it that can’t be beat. Dec 30th…early morning. I had been off all week with my eldest, but still bringing my youngest to daycare (because hey, I pay for it, why … More What a way to end 2016!
The other day, I was at my holiday party. The people there were all so sweet and asking how I was feeling, what we were planning on naming the baby, and saying how good I looked. “You can barely tell from behind that you are even pregnant!” “It looks like you swallowed a basketball-and that’s … More How much do you love kids?
I had my first big meltdown of this pregnancy yesterday. Yes, I am almost 8 months pregnant, so I am just as surprised as you that I haven’t cracked sooner. Honestly, this has been the easiest pregnancy ever – I apologize to those of you who have had tougher pregnancy, but I’ve been there with … More I am not a perfect mom, and now I have proof.
I am on a trip for a conference in Denver. I was super excited to go, and a little nervous being 7 months pregnant. But, after the okay from the doctor, here I am. And although I am this far along, I am constantly surprised (and not in a good way) about how I have … More Chivalry is Dead And Gone.
I’m not saying I don’t recommend it. But definitely, choose wisely. I attended my cousin’s wedding this weekend. It was a beautiful ceremony, actually in the same place I was married. And we left our kids at home, so we didn’t have to worry about whiny-pants showing up uninvited. The food was delicious, the music … More Attending social events while pregnant
I have been on hiatus from my blog. After the summer, heading back to work with the kids back at school has been hectic. Sometimes it makes me think, am I really ready to do this a third time? Honestly, though, some mother might hate me for what I am about to say next. This … More Decaf coffee and lots of chocolate
Ok. So a friend of mine asked me last night when I would announce my pregnancy on Facebook. I responded, I don’t think I am. We didn’t for our other two. My husband is very big on leaving it up to the people who we are in close contact with aren’t just Facebook friends so … More To announce or not
After telling a little boy that I was pregnant and explaining that I had a “baby in belly”, he responded with, “I want a baby in my belly, too.” Trying to explain to a three year old boy that they just can’t and never will is almost impossible. And then it dawned on me: I … More Why I will enjoy this last pregnancy
EVERYONE has those days. There isn’t one parent out there who can say that every single day, 24/7, that they want to be a mom or dad all the time. You get frustrated, or you’re tired, or fed up, or everything, or you just can’t do it for no reason at all. But does anyone … More I am completely honest with my kids about how I don’t want to “mom” today.
Good bad TV. Or bad good TV. However you call it, we definitely get sucked in. I had a few hours while I waited for some work stuff to happen, so I got sucked into TLC’s “I didn’t know I was pregnant”. Yes. Have you ever seen it? It’s a ridiculous show that takes you … More How did they NOT know they were pregnant?!?
