Winnie {7 Months Old}

Winnie {7 Months Old}

I can’t believe I just typed “7 MONTHS OLD” for this post’s title. Time keeps going faster and faster. And Winnie seems to be growing faster and faster. The past few weeks have been big for my Winn bean. She figured out how to crawl shortly after turning six months old. Now she’s moved on… Continue Reading

Owen’s First Day of Preschool

Owen’s First Day of Preschool

Suddenly I have a school-age child. The past four years flew by and now we’ve reached this milestone: Owen has started preschool. This momentous occasion was like Christmas day. Owen has been waiting to go to school for months, impatiently counting the days. Throughout the summer whenever he’d meet someone, he’d somehow find a way… Continue Reading

Owen’s Quarterly Update {4 Years Old}

Owen’s Quarterly Update {4 Years Old}

Oh, Owen. Where to begin? He is such a character. Writing these posts is a true challenge; it’s impossible to capture Owen’s essence in words. But yet I try, because I want to remember all the hilarious, sweet and exhausting moments with him. The moments with him are numbered. He’s four years old now, ready… Continue Reading

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

You know that talkative person that you don’t want to sit next to on the plane, get stuck in an elevator with, or answer their phone calls? The person that talks so much you can’t even fit a word in edgewise to escape the one-sided conversation? The person that three minutes with is too much verbal onslaught?… Continue Reading

Don’t Worry, Soon-To-Be-Mom! There Are Some Perks to Being a Parent

Don’t Worry, Soon-To-Be-Mom! There Are Some Perks to Being a Parent

Yes, it’s true. There are some positive, dare I say wonderful, parts of parenting (albeit not many, but it’s about the quality not the quantity). I don’t often talk about the good parts. Instead I do a lot of bitching and moaning about the bad parts on this blog (as evidenced here and here). A… Continue Reading

The 15 Most Inconveniently Timed Moments of Parenthood

The 15 Most Inconveniently Timed Moments of Parenthood

It goes without saying that parenting is hard. Really effing hard. I knew before I had kids that it wasn’t going to be easy. I’d never heard a parent boasting about how effortless and convenient raising a kid is and I’d watched a couple episodes of Parenthood, so I kind of figured parenting would be more challenging… Continue Reading

The End of the Paci Era: Why I Didn’t Want To Let Binky Go

The End of the Paci Era: Why I Didn’t Want To Let Binky Go

Two years later than I thought it would happen, it finally did. We said goodbye to the pacifier. Usually there’s a feeling of euphoria when checking another parenting milestone off the list – sleeping through the night, weaning off the bottle, potty training, etc. Every time we’ve successfully made it through one of these obstacles… Continue Reading

Ready or Not, It’s Potty Training Time

Ready or Not, It’s Potty Training Time

Potty training. Two words that send chills down every parent’s back. There are many hurdles in this crazy journey of parenthood and this one is a biggie. You know before you even begin that it’s going to stink (no pun intended). The combination of the words training, toilets, toddler, urine and feces pretty much sounds… Continue Reading
