Scheduling Sex

Yup, I just said sex. We are going there. Dad, stop reading right about…now. This post isn’t just meant to be scandalous, it’s meant to be informative too.

Tales of the Tooth Fairy

Tales of the Tooth Fairy

My daughter, Charlie, lost her 5th tooth a few nights ago following a physical altercation with her little sister.  Not one minute earlier, I had heard my husband shouting, “If you girls don’t stop rough housing with those suckers in your mouths, somebody’s gonna get hurt!”   In the midst of nursing my infant son, […]

Yet, I’m blogging at this hour, buzzed after numbing my mind on mindless TV (thank you, ‘New Celebrity Apprentice’) […]

Explaining Life {and Death}

Explaining Life (and Death) to a Toddler

I began writing a piece about a month and a half ago about why, for a mom of 3 littles, the ‘Holiday Season’ is not always the ‘most wonderful time of year.’ It was to be cheeky and lighthearted. As in, “Why, oh why, can’t strangers stop offering my kids sweets/junk wherever we go?!” And […]

Grandparents and the Holidays

Grandparents come in maybe shapes, sizes, and family dysfunctions.  No matter whether the grandparents are near or far, involved or not, there is usually a holiday component to your interaction with them.  For the most part grandparents want to participate in their grandchildren’s holidays, thats usually a given.   Sometimes its hard to predict the […]
