Parental Regression

When I first started blogging,I had a sense that my posts would one day serve as a map of sorts — a map of how I’ve grown and changed as a mother, of all the things I’ve learned since my children were small. What I didn’t expect was that one day, I’d re-read an old [Read More…]

7 Quickie Takes Saturday

I feel so much better after my last post that I decided to join up with quick takes, something that is whimsical and fun and that I used to do religiously but that I haven’t done in ages because I’ve been the opposite of whimsical and fun. #7 Speaking of my last post, this is [Read More…]

Get Off My Internets

I’ve got to get something off my chest. I struggled for nearly two hours this morning to write a 700 word post that should have taken me 30 minutes to write, and wasn’t even very good, but every word was like pulling teeth. The Ogre read it, and mentioned that I need to get back [Read More…]

Conversations with the Ogre

Me: “Liam Alexander, stop taking your penis out of your underwear and put on a pair of shorts!” Liam: “But Mom, I didn’t take it out this time, it just camed out by itself!” Me: *squick* The Ogre: “See? Even at that age, they have a mind of their own.” [Read more…]

All Parenthood is #UnplannedParenthood

This is our 5th unplanned pregnancy. Yes, we are abysmal at NFP and super-fertile, which is a fantastic combination when you’re swimming in student loan debt. But this time around, those two blue lines just weren’t the usual catastrophe. I’ve never once had a positive pregnancy test that wasn’t greeted with some combination of trepidation [Read More…]

When Life Gives You Lice, Break Your Toe

Home, sweet home. It’s so glorious to come home after an extended time away.
