Keeping Perspective: Is that. . .A TURD?

Apologies for flaking yesterday.  I got awake at 4:30 all cranked on ripping the stuff out of our upper kitchen cabinets and cleaning them really well and re-organizing them. Mac has now graduated to outsmarting-the-childproofing on the kitchen DRAWERS too so anything that could pose a danger there needs to be relocated. . .Where do you hide your knives?!  I’m

TwatWaffle. . .Now That I Have Your Attention: What I Learned From Three Spoons

You know what happens when you spend a lot of time being “productive”? You have poor blog material. I don’t think I did one thing yesterday that was stupid enough to expand into a 1500 word diatribe about my incompetence. It’s amazing.  I can’t believe it either.   Today is a new day full of promise, right? I’m still really

Nope.  Not pregnant. . .Just the title of certain posts I do when I look back on all the crap I was delusional about when I was pregnant.

Muthaeffing Fingerprint: A Story About A Not So Brilliant Finish

At first they were so teensy and cute, I’d sigh wistfully at the nearly perfect little specimens on the front of the dishwasher and think, “Self, it’s nearly a shame to wipe these away, someday you’ll barely remember how darling Mac’s little hands

Has Reluctant Mother Relenquished Her Independence?

This morning I decided to get a shower.  Typically, I don’t shower until Mac’s afternoon nap because well, the mornings can be messy.  But today, I decided to throw caution to the wind and get a shower. Since Mac was sleeping in his room, I decided to use the downstairs bathroom.  I turned on the shower but no water was

Reluctant Mother Makes A Terrifying Mistake

Mac was up at just about 6 AM this morning.  At first I had visions of stalking the Least Bittern at the Boat Lake by 7 but I quickly realized he was still pretty sleepy and snuggly. I put him in bed with me and tried to give him some milk.  After 45 minutes of futile attempts to get him
