breathe momma breathe

Being a parent is THE most stressful thing. And I have it easy. One kid. No major health issues. Normal behavior. Easy peasy. Yet still THE most stressful thing. I must be a complete wuss or something. Kiddo had a tummy bug a couple of weekends ago. She recovered in a couple of days but... Continue Reading →

next stop, juvie hall

Kiddo was/is having some adjustment issues at school. To put it bluntly, she's punching kids. Yes, punching. She's gotten in trouble two days in a row for channeling Rocky Balboa. Fabulous. For the record and in my kid's defense, she has attended day care from 8 weeks to 5 years old, and we've never had... Continue Reading →

various thoughts at 3 am

Emotional rollercoaster today. It's not something I can explain here. Its just...all the things. Bleh. Life is weird. As mentioned in the title, it's an ungodly hour and momma is up pacing, nervous as a cat. #1stdayofkindgergarten Last day of daycare today for kiddo. Teary pickup. Last long commute home with her. Not so teary,... Continue Reading →

winning at sick days

Kiddo has a stomach bug so today was a sick day. I just wrote a post to go with this picture about the patience and nurturing of mothers being given out in different size containers and how I only got an 8 oz Mason jar, while others got big ol' five gallon plastic buckets full...

staring

It has not been the best of weekends. Kiddo got violently ill on the way home Thursday, requiring an impromptu pit stop along the interstate to clean her up best I could and get home asap. It was gross and pitiful and made me cry when she stared at me with her little lip quivering... Continue Reading →

mommy stuff

So yeah, we've been on vacation for several days and are just now getting back into the routine of real life. Sort of. We had a great time at the beach (pictures forthcoming if I can ever get them all downloaded). Kiddo really made great process with her swimming and got braver with each day.... Continue Reading →

1:21 am heartburn

I have a kickin' case of heartburn and can't sleep. I woke up feeling like my tongue and throat were swelling up. Weird right? So I googled side effects of my new meds and fought back the urge to call 911. Seriously people, don't try to self diagnose via the internet because it will scare... Continue Reading →

2:50 AM

Up with a frantic kiddo doing the pee pee dance which resulted in a trip to the potty with no results. But hey, she tried. Yes, we are still in pull ups at night (her, not me, yet) and honestly, I'm not worrying about it until she's 10 or so. Haha. I know I don't... Continue Reading →

where did i go?

This morning I heard myself yell up the stairs to kiddo as she skittered away from me to avoid putting on her socks like I'd told her to multiple times. "You are fixin' to get a time out young lady!!!!" Yes, I said "fixin" just like that, without the g, and I added in a... Continue Reading →

older & weirder

The thing about getting older is that we acknowledge the things that make us quirky and hopefully embrace them. Or at least laugh. So, in the shower there are various bottles of shampoo, body washes, conditioners, etc. You know, smellygood girlie stuff. Shampoo and conditioner always in matching bottles because I buy the same brand.... Continue Reading →

its 4am and I’m wondering

The oddest things occur to me in that drowsy state between having answered the call of "Mooooommy" and taking the dog out. Like, how did the person who names nail polish colors get that job? Is it a random and casual process or does a lot of thought go into the monikers of Cranberry Crush and Polynesian Purple? Is it something a marketing... Continue Reading →

reframing the day*

Very rough morning today. I was already on edge from some other things going on. On edge, as in I lay in bed for 45 minutes willing some sort of rip in the fabric of the universe to happen so that I wouldn't have to get up. On edge, as in I didn't shower this morning... Continue Reading →
