What Toddlers Are Thinking

What Toddlers Are Thinking

If you’ve ever caught yourself wondering what’s going on in those little heads then you’re probably a parent. I found this on Facebook today, via the Mamas Uncensored Weight Loss page. Thought I’d share. When all else fails…breathe.

Dancing on the Line

Dancing on the Line

Somewhere between madness and motherhood. That’s where I am. The Toddler and I have had quite the journey. Our pregnancy was horrific (I had instructions not to stray too far from the hospital, traveled three hours away every other month to visit high-risk pregnancy specialists, and ended up with a planned C-section “just in case”).

Outside the Box

Outside the Box

Sometimes it would be so much easier if children just came with an attached parenting manual. And maybe a smaller manual specific to that particular child.

“Potty Train” Wreck

“Potty Train” Wreck

Dear Internet, It’s been a while since I’ve written a post and have to confess here at the beginning that the whole potty training thing just (as my friend Jenny says) ”blows goats!” At various times in the past two years (TWO YEARS! YEARS!!!!) The Toddler has been “potty trained.”  She’s been in underwear during […]

Angels in Waiting

Angels in Waiting

Samantha was four years old with long dark hair and big dark eyes. Her pale skin flushed with the slightest hint of soft pink like the peonies in her mother’s flower garden and when she slept her long dark lashes gently brushed the cherubic curve of her small cheek. Sabrina had a hard time pulling […]
