Another Dirty Little Parenting Secret. . .

It’s time for me to reveal yet another dirty little parenting secret:  I’ve been co-sleeping.  With Teddy.  A. LOT. Pretty much part of every night. I. KNOW! Or I don’t know? I’m not sure what to make of it? With Mac we were SO determined to keep him out of our bed, I spent countless nights on his bedroom floor.

Colossal Mind Fuck

There’s a couple of things you figure out pretty quickly as a new parent.  Top of the list?  No one can fully prepare you for what a colossal mind fuck it is.  Kids will screw with you long before they even realize it’s delightful to do so. I’ve mentioned before Huggy Bear’s sleeping habits have deteriorated.  We’ve reached a new
