It’s My Potty and I’ll Cry If I Want To

Will decided last week that it was time to “rip the band aid off” with respect to potty training.  Yeah, our 3 year old daughter has been inching toward big girl panties now for about 9 months.  Our lack of … Continue reading

Landfill of the Free and the Home of the Brave

We’ve become aware of a problem this spring.  Actually, we had an inkling of it before now, but with the zillions of inches of rain1 we’ve had, it’s rubbed our noses in it, so to speak.  Our back yard is a bog.  Sure, … Continue reading

Getting Used Two You

So the adjustment continues.  (As a matter of fact, as I typed this, Felix was asleep against my chest with his butt propped up on our Boppy pillow.  Where there’s a blog, there’s a way, I suppose.)   My post-partum issues … Continue reading

Goldilocks and the Two Bears

We’ve celebrated yet another developmental milestone:  graduating to a new diaper size.  Stella had been sporting the 1-2 size (corresponding up to 15 pounds) for the longest time. Honestly, she was only in the newborn size for a few weeks … Continue reading

Over the river and through the woods, to Meatloaf’s house we go

No matter how much you adore your child and wouldn’t trade your mommy status for all the money in the world, there are still these “WTF” moments where you look around and wonder what in the world has happened to … Continue reading

I shat the sheriff…

Poor Will.  Brave Will.  Will the good sport.  He has become the champion of diapers.  It seems an almost tacit agreement that since I’m entirely responsible for Stella’s dining experience (Input), that he will take the other end (Output).   It’s … Continue reading

Harry Potter meets Pig Pen

The first full day home has been an experience, but I guess that goes without saying.  Stella pretty much cut up all night long.  It’s amazing what you learn and learn quickly.  After feeling a bit cocky about how well-provisioned … Continue reading
