When Nighttime Becomes A (Potential) Nightmare

I’ll admit it.  I never heard of something called “sleep regression” until I saw a few other Mothers Tweeting about it recently. That can’t be right, can it?  I thought a little smugly to myself. There’s no such thing as sleep regression. Maybe that’s just something people say when they can’t effectively get their kid to sleep? I hadn’t read

When A Nap Is Not Just A Nap. . .

I’m feeling all twitchy and nervous. Seems my little darling elected to skip his nap today.  What un-nerves me the most about this afternoon? The fact that Mac seems to have made a conscious decision not to nap. He went to the stairs with his wubbies at the typical time, like he wanted a nap.  We went upstairs and I

My Love Affair Continues. . .

I know I’m beating a dead horse but I can’t say enough how much I still love our Sleepy Wrap baby carrier. Yes.  I realize Mac isn’t so much a baby any longer. . .but we’re still in love with it. Granted, it doesn’t see nearly the action it did when he was younger but I find it’s always good

It’s New Baby Gear. . .Ergo, I’m Frustrated. . .

We purchased an Ergo baby carrier last week. And so far, I suck at it. I REALLY REALLY REALLY wanted a new baby-wearing tool.  I LOVE LOVE LOVE our Sleepy Wrap baby carriers and I use them a LOT.  Every day.  So does my Husband. However, with Mac’s increasing size and squirminess, I was discovering the Sleepy Wrap had some

Air Travel With An Eleven-Month Old

My Father-in-Law has been mercilessly teased for the past 30 years for something he said to my Husband when he was a little boy. Chris asked his Father if he had a fun vacation? Father’s response?  “I made two crucial mistakes on this trip.  I brought the wife and kids.” I used to howl with laughter at that comment but

What. What Did You Just Call That?!

I knew very little about pregnancy or child-birth or actually raising children before my dumb ass went and got knocked up.  As it turns out, that was a blessing nearly as great as Mac himself.  The list of things people don’t tell you is long and nefarious.  I’ll be sharing more of those dirty little secrets as Mac’s birthday approaches.

I’m Feeling Supremely Smug

At least for a few minutes. . . You might recall in a previous post I was discussing our Pediatrician’s advice.  She sternly admonished me that by changing or feeding Mac during the night I was creating poor sleep habits. She. Was. Dead. Wrong. Of late, he’s been sleeping through the night.  In fact last night he slept from 9:30

The Pediatrician

I really do like our Pediatrician.  She’s clearly on top of her medical training.  She has a booming practice and still manages to stay timely with her appointments.  Her staff is friendly and knowledgeable.  And perhaps most importantly she takes time at every one of our wellness appointments to talk with us. This leaves me feeling semi-clueless and perhaps just

Never Allow Satan’s Lap Hound To Attend Your Supper Party

Last night we had the pleasure of hosting our neighbors for dinner.  In attendance were the Young Fun Couple, newly engaged Christmas Tree Guy and his fiancée, Chris, me, and rather unfortunately, two dogs and two of our three cats. I mostly enjoy entertaining.  What I certainly do not enjoy is the unpredictability of entertaining with so many damned pets
