dental hygiene

How many times can I sing-song "brush your teeth....yay" in this clip? I remember how I used to roll my eyes at mom's talking this way and now look at me. I even annoy myself. Ha. And I promise I'm not checking my email or texting here! I'm trying to video us both in the mirror... Continue Reading →

sicky sicky

Rought night last night. Sam woke up throwing up twice. 1:00 and 3:30 am. It was extremely gross of course and very concerning as she's never done that before. She was so pitiful. She let me take her temp (which she HATES and usually fights me like a wrestler) and she was so pale and... Continue Reading →

wrong side of the bed

I went to bed early last night. Go me. I really should do this more often as I woke up a bit more rested than normal. Funny how that works. But then I woke up in somewhat of a pissy mood this morning. Maybe its the constant rain, maybe it was a frustrating conversation I... Continue Reading →

mom stuff

Sam will be moving up to the Toddler room on Oct 1! Until then, there will be short visits each day to get her used to it. I am not ready for this. She doesn't even "toddle" yet! It makes me teary. My car smelled like poo this morning. This was after I had already... Continue Reading →


Sam has a virus. Nothing to do but give Tylenol and wait it out. She is back at daycare for the moment. Still fussy but my mind is eased a bit. No ear infection either. I have "elevated" blood pressure. Instructed to see my PCP about that in conjunction with some meds I'm currently taking.... Continue Reading →

yeah, i dunno either

Why I'm still up at this hour I mean. It seems that if I want to do anything non-baby related, I have to do it late at night when the house is quiet and my mind is not so manic. Besides, I had some work to catch up on since procrastination is my homeboy and now that... Continue Reading →

back to normal

The drive home yesterday was kind of brutal. I mean, it could have been worse and we didn't have the fifty-million poops like we did on the drive down, but Sam was so over being in the car and wasn't shy about telling us this. It was super cute how she was so happy to... Continue Reading →

missing it already

It's late on Wednesday night. One full day of vacation left and then the long drive back home on Friday. That part I dread. But it's been a great time. Although I will be honest and say that its been much different vacationing with a child then our past trips. I guess that's obvious but still,... Continue Reading →

i love this tonight.

And then, the unspeakable purity and freshness of the air! There was just enough heat to enhance the value of the breeze, and just enough wind to keep the whole sea in motion, to make the waves come bounding to the shore, foaming and sparkling, as if wild with glee. - Anne Bronte (1820-1849), Agnes...

I think my head might burst open. I have a killer headache. Oy. Hubs and a coworker had an "incident" on the interstate today. A car swerved to dodge a semitruck tire that was in the road and the tire flew up and hit his car. I haven't seen it yet but apparently the car is busted... Continue Reading →

this is why i’m so tired

Wow, this has been a super duper extra busy weekend! We made a quick trip home yesterday to go to a family cookout. Mom was already there and Bro dropped by a bit later. It was great to see all the cousins and aunts we haven't seen in ages and ages. Some of them hadn't seen us... Continue Reading →

Happy Birthday little brother!

I should have posted this last night or this morning but I wouldn't want to ruin my reputation by actually sending someone birthday wishes on time. Today is my one and only sibling, my little brother's birthday! So Happy Birthday! Remember that time I flew down our hill on my bike and rammed into you on your... Continue Reading →


Sometimes my brain is completely blank, lacking even one iota of inspiration. I wonder how many hours I've wasted staring at the screen or into the blank pages of my journal before I resign myself to typing a few paragraphs of diary-esque drivel or filling the page with doodles of curly ques and flowers? Sometimes I dream of... Continue Reading →

yada yada yada

I hate wearing contacts. I mean, I like having the option but I swear, after a while I cannot see worth squat with them in. I wore them today so I could wear sunglasses as I was going to be outside a lot but now, sitting at the computer, I'm having issues. Therefore I am restricting... Continue Reading →
