Disney World

Wow! I'd been nervous about taking my kids to Disney Anything for a few years. I was sure I'd lose them to the overseas child porn trade or one would nose dive off a ride and die in front of...

Julia'isms

Apparently my 4.42 year old daughter doesn’t have a thought/speaking filter. She must get this from me though my filter tends to crumble in direct correlation to how much wine I’ve drank. No, she doesn’t drink (yet) and I’m afraid...

R.I.P. Fish

My daughter Julia doesn’t believe it was an accident. It was. I swear. Though I bitched and whined when my husband brought home the fish and tank, I slowly grew attached to them. When he gave up caring for them...

Industrious

My 3.25 year old daughter is quite the industrious little thing. We celebrated New Years Eve at a friend’s house, kids included. Julia had dinner and three small popsicles throughout the evening. I didn’t think too much of it. Apparently,...

Flu Vaccine

As most people who know me well know that I don’t get myself or my kids vaccinated for the flu (bring on the boos). My personal reasons include that I feel getting the flu is part of life and when...

Happy Birthday Julia~

Happy birthday to my ‘baby’ Julia who turns three today. Didn’t I just have her, via extraction out of my middle region? The resulting ‘awning’ says I did. No scar, just a, say, bit of an overhang that fortunately...

Egg Hunt

Last year was the first year we took Alec (and Julia) to the annual Steiner Ranch Easter Egg Hunt. When the horn went off and everybody stampeded, Alec got a bit overwhelmed and kinda decided to bag it. Julia;...

Discussions and Debates

My street savvy 2.39 year old daughter Julia enjoys debating me though, at times, her arguments need a tad bit more strategy and polish. For example, she has been attempting to convince me why she shouldn’t have to poop in...

A Good Day

Yesterday was quite the day. We officially got our new president. He’s black. He’s young. Energetic, handsome and smart. At least it appears so. Most people seem pretty happy and are excited about the new direction our country will hopefully...

Toddler's Heads - Warning

So, we all get that my darling two year old Julia is a bit rough, quite athletic, fearless, won’t hesitate to bite if necessary and, as mentioned before, will kick Alec’s a** for little to no reason. Remember Alec’s written...

Medical Malady & Julia's birthday

So, here I am writing again. After a long bloody time. Maybe it was the ‘allergic reaction’ I apparently got that caused hives over 80% of my body. Hey, click here for a pic of the fun. It’s hot. I...

The Sick House

Hey, want to come over to our house? Probably not if you know what’s good for your health. It’s actually become funny it’s so ridiculous. Synopsis of the fun:...

BEYOND PICKY

What kid doesn’t like juice? What kid doesn’t like grapes? PB&J? Not any longer. I need help – desperately. I think I need a Dr. Mom (or Dad) who can help me with a…uh…problem. I’ve done my research on-line, taken...

Dear Julia

Dear Julia, As it’s been well over a year and you’re still here, it’s become apparent that you’re going to be staying awhile. So, I thought I’d better submit my requests to you in a timely manner in order for...

Poop Privacy Hypocrisy

I realize most parents probably don’t go around telling people about their lack of bathroom privacy beefs or that it is 100% certain that 1+ child will always follow you into the bathroom regardless of the business you must attend...

Julia's Walking! Or is She?

Julia decided this weekend was the opportune time to jazz up her parents when she decided to walk THIRTEEN steps – all at once. Like she just decided she’d get up off the floor and not even attempt trial and...

The Last 24 Hours (of hell)

I’ve been preparing for my in-laws to arrive tonight from England. I’ve left the last 24 hrs for vacuuming, buying fresh produce, ensuring the house is straight, laundry done and so on in order to focus on their visit. So,...

Keeping Babies Awake In The Car - a.k.a. Nap At Home

Parents: tell me I’m not the only one who is constantly looking for new and improved ways to keep my infant awake the last 5-10 minutes of a car ride when you are racing home to get said infant down...

Baby Got A Time Out!

My sweet, always smiling, gentle 7 month old baby girl had to be SEPARATED and put into a corner yesterday at my gym's baby care area. She apparently was making the other babies cry by grabbing their hair, face,...
