Wondrous Wednesday #10

“I wonder… why I’m double insulated and Mommy’s not even wearing gloves?!”  Pudding Pop sures looks cozy in all that snow gear!  Proud Mom, Melissa, was the one freezing when they went outside to sled.  Somehow a snow + a saucer + a smile warms you right up! Every Wednesday we’ll be sharing a photo [...]

A Parenting Pickle

Okay…I’m in a pickle, and not one of those sweet little gherkin pickles, either.  It’s more of a huge sour pickle you have to fish out of barrel at the deli.  The kind that’s so sour, it sucks your face inside out when you take a bite.  That’s me right now…in a pickle, face sucked [...]

Baby #2 vs. Baby #1 (a totally different pregnancy!)

Let me just start by saying that I am the oldest child in my family. It is only now, now that I’m pregnant with Baby #2 (due in T-minus 2 months), that I’m starting to see the gripes of a second child. (don’t tell my sister I realized this though!) And, yes, for me the [...]

A wave of guilt

More countertop space!! Who knew more countertop space could make someone so happy. Oh wait, and sad at the same time?? I recently purchased a new over-the-oven microwave and was over-the-moon with anticipation about all the new countertop space I would now have once I give my old microwave the heave-ho. Hmmm… what should I [...]

We’ve asked them a bunch of questions and they’ve been kind enough to answer them (and then some!) Reading the answers, you clearly see that as parents we’re all very similar.

Karma Picky Eater

Gotta Love Karma…

As a child, I was a very picky eater (I have to say, I still am). When I wouldn’t eat dinner, my mom used to say, “I hope you have a daughter that is just as bad as you.” Well, what goes around comes around. My daughter Pudding Pop is an extremely picky eater (or [...]

Breaking her off the Binky

When you don’t have children, it’s easy to be a “drive-by parent”. My husband & I have 12 amazing nieces and nephews and it was fun to sit back and say; “we will never_____” – you can fill in the blank. We said it all. This parenting thing is going to be so EASY! Well [...]
