What did I learn this week?

Also not safe…

My 9 month old just figured out how to climb up the stove…not sure how to childproof that one.  If I take the handles off the oven, how will I open the door? Hmmmmm…

That is NOT safe…

Day before yesterday, I am upstairs doing something when I hear the cackling approach of W. Where is it coming from? The staircase. I see Corey standing behind him as W proceeds to climb up the 14 steps to our second floor. By himself. Did I mention he is only 8 months old? Hmmmm. He […]

Out of sight, out of mind…

I could also call this post “Give me what I really want, and I’ll forget about the other thing.” After pondering what to do about the Disney Princess pillow book – and, thank you Sarah, for your suggestion on this, it reminded me of my own mother’s Barbie-free policy lecture that she started to give […]

I want to live the glamorous life

Just kidding. I wouldn’t be a stay at home mom if that were actually true. The other day I was trying to remember what I thought I would be doing at 40, what my life would be like. I can’t actually remember what I thought because I don’t journal, and unlike some people, I don’t […]

Please add sugar

Maybe it is just me, but I have a thing about birthday cakes. Namely, they should have sugar in them. Call me crazy, but there is NO SUCH THING as a cake that tastes “just as good” without it. I would say that I probably feel as strongly about this burning issue as Sarah does […]

Hello Mr. Tooth

W got his first tooth today.  It wasn’t there this morning, but showed up late this afternoon!

Had too much princess?

If you are the parent of a young child, then you know about the Disney princesses. Love them or hate them, they are there – glassy eyed, small waisted, and big haired. What’s wrong with the Disney princesses? Well, I am sure that there are people out there who have devoted a ton of space […]

This is getting ridiculous…

Tonight when I was getting C ready for bed she started getting very upset about why she was not allowed to have candy in bed. I’m not sure where she even got the idea in the first place, and I told her that she wasn’t missing anything, because no one we know gets chocolate in […]

Those would be MY kids…

They are the ones who aren’t wearing any clothes by the end of playgroup…and what about that little girl who isn’t wearing a coat or sweater in the freezing cold…do you hear that screaming…no, it is not a wild animal, just C upset about everything and anything. But, the two of them are also irrepressible […]

Welcome to the pest house

For the last four weeks, everyone here has been sick – unfortunately including me. For anyone who thinks there is nothing worse than being sick, it is, in fact, much worse when you have small children to look after (who are also sick). What I have found yet again, is that women do seem to […]
