Momming

Have you ever thought about what a reverse bucket list would be like? Because I’m pretty sure 80% of parenting would be on that list. Obviously being a mom is great, but let’s be real – there are a lot of #momthings that aren’t. For example, I just got off the phone with the doctor’s […]

I have a comondrum (that’s obviously what a conundrum on Monday is called). A certain group of women who have happily chosen not to have kids are up in arms about the pressure they get from society to have kids. And I completely get it – a ridiculous amount of a woman’s value seems to be solely […]

This week has been a doozy.  Abbott, who’s been battling some painful bowel movements, finally became so constipated that I called his doctor on Monday and the nurse suggested a suppository. I have never given anyone or anything any sort of suppository, so it went just as you can probably imagine it went. He cried. I cried. […]

  I have officially entered the ‘no fly zone’. What, you might ask, does this mean? It’s hard to put eloquently into words so let me just give it to you straight. Abbott turned 7 months last week. 7 months, for those of you with little babies who might not know, is the exact moment your baby […]

Yesterday I received the boys’ 2016-2017 Family Handbook for the new “school” year and I can’t remember the last time I was so nervous. For those of us with kids in child care centers across the country, this is one of those moments we dread. It’s one of the defeating moments that comes with parenting. We go […]

Have you ever woken up one day and just been convinced your child actually belongs to Satan? Because I have. And it was this morning. To sum up the last couple weeks in my world of parenting, I will say Abbott has been a dream (I never want him to grow up) and Matty has been […]

I’mmmmmmm BAAAAAAACK and I have a commondrum (that’s obviously what a conundrum is called on a Monday – even though it’s Tuesday, we’ll just pretend). Over the weekend I went on my first real ma-cation (i.e., mom vacation) and I’m still recovering. We went to Nashville where 3 out of 5 of us had never been – […]

This morning was one of those mornings. Seth’s alarm clock went off but was mysteriously silent (and by mysteriously, I mean I’m assuming he silenced it and doesn’t remember), my phone was dead (offuckingcourse), my kids strangely slept like angels for much longer than usual and the sun was just soft enough not to wake any […]

So it happened, Matty turned two and everything was – as semi-predicted – freaking fabulous. But saying goodnight to him and walking out of his room last night was bittersweet. On one hand, we’d all wake up today and nothing would be different but on the other hand, I was anxious because I wasn’t prepared for today – […]

Last night the inevitable happened; Marty dropped his first legit F word. And while, on some scale, this probably makes me a terrible mother, I can’t lie, I’m pretty impressed by his timing. Now, as you can imagine, I probably swear more than I “should” in daily conversations with friends and family but I haven’t […]
