What did I learn this week?

What’s in a name?

Every parent goes through the process of trying to pick the right name for a new baby. Probably everyone finds it difficult. It is hard to pick a name that you like, then even harder to find one your partner likes, and harder still if you are also concerned that other family members and the […]

I can’t seam!

No, not a spelling error or weird grammatical error. A statement of my frustration. I finished C’s hat today – Corey says “I thought you were knitting a sweater?” I say, “I am. This is my in-between project; the sweater is green, this has stripes, didn’t you notice?” I guess not…:) Anyway, all went well […]

Lots of screaming today…(sigh)

Today was a difficult day for C, and consequently, for me too. She had a complete meltdown at playgroup when the coordinator, River, tried to explain the concept of sharing. C typically runs around and hoards the toys she really likes, and River tried to broach the subject of letting others play with some of […]

Problem resolved?

So yesterday I got an email from Bummis saying that they will send me a replacement for the defective Bamboozle diaper. That is great of course, but I would have been a bit happier if they had decided to do this right away rather than all the rigamarole that occurred. But, the important thing is […]

5 weeks and counting…

…or maybe not. According to the doctor, things may progress sooner than expected, but, no one knows for sure. When I was pregnant with C I was 1 cm dilated at 35 weeks, but with this pregnancy, I am 3 cm at the same point. Well, she went right to the end, so it is […]

Feeling bamboozled

A few months ago I switched C to cloth diapers. It is something that I had intended to do sooner, but never got around to. Also, I was hoping she would take to using the potty on a regular basis, but so far, she is really not consistently interested. By the way, she also rages […]

Joining the club

Today I got my email invitation to become a member of Ravelry! As explained on the site, it is not that they are trying to be exclusive, just that the site is new, a lot of people want to sign up, and there is only one poor fellow doing all the code. Anyway, I love […]

Pregnant and still nursing…?

I can’t tell you how many times I have seen that raised eyebrow. That being said, I have also had a quite a number of moms ask with genuine interest how that has worked for me. I have to say that it has not always been easy, although once I hit about 32 weeks or […]
