Cee Says the Darndest Things

So, it’s been what feels like a billion years since I gave a real update on C. She’ll be three next month (I know, right?!) and she’s starting preschool this Wednesday. On Thursday, she’s going to the dentist for the first time. Out of these things, she’s most excited about the dentist. Go figure. Cee […]

Seven Valentines That Will Put You in the Mood For Love

Ahhhhh, can you feel it? Love is in the air. Or perhaps that is the sickly sweet smell of grapes that your child left behind the sofa three weeks ago. …. … …. OK, that’s totally what it was. Moving on.  Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, and if you’re anything like me, […]

Your toddler doesn't care if you're on your period, and here's why you shouldn't either.

Your toddler doesn’t care if you’re on your period, and here’s why you shouldn’t either.

Of all the character traits that don’t serve me well as a parent, my reluctance to take myself less seriously is probably the worst. I had had a pretty crappy day. I overslept a few minutes, I ran into traffic on my way to work, and within an hour, I could tell that it was going to take […]

Ten Birthday Cakes That Will Help You Breathe Easier

So, today is my birthday. I’m pretty excited that I made it to 33, and I’m going to be celebrating with B by taking a staycation in Memphis sans C this weekend. Tomorrow, we’re going to an animal mummies exhibit. Obviously. I usually write thoughtful, pensive blog posts on my birthday. If you’d like to […]

Take Your Turkey and Stuff It: Four Thanksgiving Foods that Should Be Banned

So I fell off the NaBloPoMo horse for a few days. Big surprise there. Seriously, the fact that I’ve managed to log in more than three times this entire month is nothing short of miraculous and I owe it all to the copious amounts of coffee I’ve been drinking. If you smell something off, it’s […]

A Campfire Story

Probably one of the coolest things about observing a child grow up is seeing them learn. When they figure stuff out all by themselves, the look of pride on their faces is just delectable. I remember the time C took her first wobbly steps. Even though she didn’t actually know where she was going, she sensed […]

Nearly Wordless Wednesday – erm, Thursday: Sticktoittiveness

Next time you think you can’t do something, just remember that there are self-aware signs all over our country that are making it in the real estate biz.   That pile of laundry doesn’t look too daunting now, does it? ♥   This is the tenth installment of National Emily Posts Month (NaEmPoMo). Connect on Facebook […]

Peppa Pig is my homegirl.

“I’m going to write a blog post about Peppa Pig. How should I even start?,” I asked B while we were out on an errand today. “Don’t gild the lily. Just say it’s the most awesome show ever made.” Go ahead and put your hyperbole goggles on ’cause imma bout to spray you with the […]

Humility At Work

On my recent flight from San Jose for BlogHer, I sat across the aisle from a guy I recognized from the convention as a WordPress programmer. I argued with myself over whether I should say hi, it being extremely early and me having the proclivity to insert my foot in my mouth whenever I randomly approach […]

Come Fly With Me. Here’s Your Barf Bag.

Over the weekend, I had the pleasure of going to BlogHer14 in San Jose, California. It was a great experience not only because I got to collect my very first ever blogging award* but also because I learned how to do many new things such as take a selfie and work the word “niche” into 2/3rds […]
