The Endless Cleaning Cycle

I feel like I’m always cleaning and that the house is never actually clean. I’ve been having trouble trying to figure out why that is. This morning I had an epiphany – it’s not that I don’t clean enough, I just clean the same things over and over. In the past two weeks I’ve cleaned […]

Simply, from my heart

I am beginning to feel like SISYPHUS in my quest to get my daughter speech help. It seems like every time we get close, everything comes tumbling down. We are approaching the top of the hill again and I am waiting to fall, once again. It really is the most horrible feeling. Part of me […]

SHHH Don’t tell my husband…

I was a SUCKER!!! It’s ok, he won’t be surprised. If you didn’t already know, Hokey Pokey Elmo is a top ten toy this season. Toys R Us is sold out. Amazon.com want $75 for it (it’s a $25 toy). Catie LOVES Elmo and she bops along whenever there’s music on so I had to […]

How kids get into EVERYTHING

Yeah, you know that. But this story is different, I promise! It all began when Charlotte was 2 months old. After nights of fussiness and fighting sleep we were flipping channels and Shark Tale, starring Will Smith, came on HBO. In an instant our screaming child was silent. And from then on, thanks to Cablevision’s […]

What no one told you about having babies

When one sleeps the other not only doesn’t, but won’t let you do anything but hold her. Sleeping is a luxury, not for the first few months, but for the next 18 years. You stop wondering why people bring sticky children to the store – it happened with the bribe in the car on the […]

No my child’s not slow, she’s tall!

Yes, I know my daughter is the size of the average 3 year old, but she’s not 3, she’s 2. Actually not even 2 a week yet. She’s a tad under 3 feet tall. She doesn’t talk much, she isn’t as coordinated as older kids, but for her age she is amazingly gifted – and […]

My venture into porn

It was a simple thing really. I keep getting annoying phone calls from MCI about updating my credit card information. While I usually hang up since I don’t have an account with MCI, when the call came through for the third time today I actually listened to it. But the number they provided went too […]

And the doctor said…

It’s one thing when ignorant people make stupid comments to pregnant women, but it’s another when a doctor puts a foot in her mouth. Throughout my first pregnancy I had a lot of people ask if I was having twins. I shrugged it off figuring the clientele at Home Depot didn’t have sensors for these […]
