No TV (at least for one night…)

This past Monday, some of my fellow bloggers, Kim and Kristin, and I were discussing discipline. We joke that Kim and I are completely opposite when it comes to discipline. I am very, very lax and Kim is structured & planned (she has a discipline meter…). I have to admit, that I was inspired by [...]

I’d Like to Schedule My Baby, Please

OK.  So I had a really strange conversation this past week.  At 35 weeks pregnant, I finally broke down and decided to have a c-section for the birth of my little Hercules.    “Broke down?” you ask.  Well, I didn’t have a c-section for Boog but let’s just say that he was “too big” for [...]

Second Pregnancy Superstitions

Coming off what was an amazing first pregnancy and delivery (well, at least in my mind it was) with a baby that slept well right off the bat, barely cried and gave us plenty of happy smiles and coos, I felt incredibly lucky that Punkin’ Bear decided to take it easy on her dear old [...]

Snap. Crackle. Pop.

No. That is not Childhood Calling. Quite the opposite really. That is the sound of old age slowly creeping up on you. Creeping because it s-l-o-w-l-y rears it’s ugly head as you age alongside your children, but not creeping like in a quiet kinda way. That snap, crackle, pop of every joint in your body [...]
