Daylight Savings: A Parent’s Nightmare

In Potty Training – The Poopocalypse, I discuss how the worst aspect of parenting is potty training. Let me tell you, Daylight Savings is a close second. Why the heck do we even do Daylight Savings Time (DST)? Well I checked Wikipedia (who has time to read peer reviewed articles?),…

Super Mom

Every Saturday morning I meet my dad for yoga and breakfast. He’s very busy during the week, and Saturday morning has become our family time. My brother often joins us for breakfast, but first, we do yoga. We take an early morning class, to which we must arrive 15 minutes…

Playground Predator?

I’m writing to you from the comfort of my room, where a gentle light illuminates my haven. My bed is soft, my tea is hot, and the day is almost over. All three kids are asleep, papa is gently snoring, and mama’s hour has begun. I have my earphones in;…

How I Met My Husband

Parenting is hard, and a loyal, devoted partner can make all the difference. If you’re lucky enough to have a significant other, be thankful. If you’re still looking, be patient; the right person will come when you least expect it. I used to hear some variation of that every time…

Baby V is Here!

So far, I’ve only had the chance to introduce my older daughters, L & R. Baby V joined the clan in December at 10:16 in the morning, weighing 8lbs 3oz and measuring 21 inches long. Now, as you’ll soon find out, I am not usually the kind of mom to…

Potty Training – The Poopocalypse

It all began with a pair of socks. I asked Yev, “Hey can you grab me a pair of socks for L’s feet? They’re cold.” “Why don’t I just turn up the heat?” “Because I get hot really quickly with the morning routine. I’m already taking them to the park…

Pregnancy Round 2

I found out I was pregnant the day before my husband’s 30th birthday, March 31st. We’d been trying for a few months; each month’s period bringing a depressing reminder that most people can’t have unprotected sex just once and get pregnant with twins. It was really odd for me to…

C-Section

As I’ve mentioned in Digestive Issues, I have a blood-injection-injury phobia. I’ve been in therapy, done hypnosis for it, and it alleviated much of the problem; however, with two breech babies inside me, I had a scheduled c-section. This meant my doc and I had to have a real talk.…

Pain

Let’s talk pain. I was not in particularly great shape before becoming pregnant, but I definitely wasn’t in terrible shape either. I would walk outside for about 45 mins before work, a few days a week. I had been working with a nutritionist to develop a healthier body image and…

Food Aversions

I feel most women don’t talk about food aversions enough. Everyone just seems to talk about cravings. The number one question I was always asked was, “So what are you craving??” And to be honest, I had a super boring answer, “Fruit.” People want to hear about the pickles-and-ice-cream cravings,…
