Reluctant Mother v Preschool

Preschool. Just the word makes my stomach flip. My kid isn’t even two years old yet, and already people are asking me about preschool?! Am I the only one who thinks this is insane?   Why are people so obsessed with picking the “right” preschool? It’s PRESCHOOL. Preschool is now a place where kids are wait-listed and tuitions rival that

What Husband SAID v What Reluctant Mother was Supposed to ACTUALLY HEAR

Have I mentioned how kind, patient, and thoughtful my Husband is? Have I mentioned to you he ceases to be any of those things if there is the slightest thing wrong with his stomach? Yep. Hungry, queasy, or grumbly. . .it doesn’t matter.  The results are always the same:  He’s a MONSTER!  A MONSTER!!! To make matters worse, I have

Friday Funny: Something I Hope to Never Say Again

“Please do not put your penis on the table” is something I had to say yesterday.

When Daddy’s Not Working He’s Busy Getting Played. . .

I’m proud to say without any hint of snark or sarcasm that my Husband is a REALLY good Father.  He’s very involved.  He’s willing to help.  He loves spending time with Mac. Naturally, Mac adores him. Fortunately, Chris had a decent amount of time away from the office over the holidays and he shouldered some of the tasks I typically

New Year’s Eve: Of Resolutions and Regret. . .

Everyone gets all jazzed about the New Year.  They get all excited about self-improvement and organization and not slurping a bottle of wine for dinner every other night.   My Twitter feed is positively buzzing with talk of “cleanses” and the purchase of storage tubs and trying to fit into high school sized pants. Every time I see one of

Once Again, I Stand Corrected

Remember how I was all enthralled with the pint-sized Ikea table and chairs Mac’s Grandparents gave him for his first birthday? Remember how I was all excited to share when I gave them a chalkboard paint upgrade? Remember I thought they were SUPER FUN?! I WAS WRONG!!! So terribly wrong. The other day I was in the kitchen prepping dinner when

THIS IS IMPORTANT!! FREE BOOKS!!!

Something very exciting happened to me recently.  And not in the freaking debacle manner it usually does. . . I was published. In a book. I KNOW. I’m as shocked about it as anyone. . . The awesome ladies Monica & Abbey who compile the Life Well Blogged series asked me to contribute a story to their first edition entitled

The Craft Fair From Hell

The other day, as I watched Mac once again climb onto his little table and go wacky berserk on the dimmer light switches for the entire main floor of the house, I began to wistfully reminiscence about this time last year:  His first Christmas. He was about 7 months old. . .and barely mobile. . .and pretty docile.  It was

What the Hell is Going on Next Door?!

When I was younger and just slightly less foolish, I used to mercilessly mock my own Mother and maternal Grandmother for being “nosey.” (Not often to their faces mind you. . .mostly behind their backs. . .perpetuating a “gossipy” cycle of discussing another’s business while they aren’t in your presence.  Remember that drug commercial where the kid screams “I learned

FRIDAY FUNNY: Excuse Me?

Last weekend I met up with a friend I’ve known since 6th or 7th grade.  She has a son who is just about 6 months older than Mac.  We all went to the Rosedale Library to play at their indoor “Storeyville” area. I had never heard of Storeyville.  I assumed it might be a loungey kid-friendly area with lots of
