I make mistakes that I hope will not screw up my child or more so that they’re too young to remember these mistakes. So, you want some insider secrets, please let me give them to you. READ MORE

Help! I’m Turning Into My Mother!

This is my future. Look at it. Is it a photo of a purse with faux fur on it? Yes, yes it is.

Is it adorable? Yes, but that’s not the point. And the blinged out phone cover? Also adorable, but also gaudy, no?

The point is this: I’m turning into my mother.

Don’t get my wrong, I tolerate love my mother, so turning into her is isn’t a bad thing.
But so soon? So quickly?

I figured I’d be at least late 50s before the resemblences started creeping in. Apparently not. READ MORE

    This First-Time Mommy’s Sanity Was Saved With A Camera

    My first baby was one that the books (and my pediatrician) referred to as ‘spirited’.  What that really means is from the moment they are born, IF they are awake, they ARE screaming.  ‘Spirited’ is not to be confused with colic.  Spirited hangs on much longer.  She also never slept for more than 2 hours at a time (often 45 minutes) for months and months.  Even as an older baby, she didn’t sleep well and was crying most of the time.  It wasn’t a ‘something hurts’ cry, it was an ‘I’m pissed’ cry.
