The “Momover”… It’s Like 12 Step

April 26, 2010

Okay, maybe not exactly like 12 Step, because I sure as hell am not going to apologize for anything I went through in having and raising this kid, but it’s definitely a process.  One that begins with acknowledgement- recognizing the need for self-intervention, and being able to act on it.  This is hard to...

“Daddy’s Got to Buy the Money”

April 19, 2010

This is what Hayden says when Daddy goes to work.  He is starting to make the connection that work=money, but he’s not really sure what money is or why we need it.  He has a darling piggy bank, given to him by his Aunt Pet and Uncle Charles.  He puts coins in there, but...

That’s Kind of Like Daddy’s

That’s Kind of Like Daddy’s

Daddy is sort of like a superhero.  He wears a special suit of armor with gloves, and he goes real fast.  Daddy rides a motorcycle, and Hayden idolizes him. There are a lot of motorcyclists in Los Angeles.  Every time we are out in the car together, Hayden spots a motorcycle, and every time...

Sir Hiss

March 25, 2010

My two and a half year old is sitting at the table having a snack, wearing a t-shirt and his undies.  I am in the kitchen, doing dishes, as usual.  I can only see him from the neck up. Hayden:  “Mommy, my penis is sticking out.  Can you fix it?” Me:  “Um, we can...

Laundry Boycott

March 18, 2010

I haven’t done any laundry for TWO DAYS.  It’s liberating, having all this extra time to clean the filthy sinks, baseboards, and railings.  The baskets are full (husband and son can dirty up some clothes), and as long as we’ve got clean underwear, I’m not washing anything.  But, I’ve got this feeling in the...

Passing Thoughts

February 25, 2010

If a man had as many ideas during the day as he does when he has insomnia, he’d make a fortune.  ~Griff Niblack Two am.  Hayden wakes crying, needing his Puppy Lovie.  This is not a common occurrence.  Scott gets up, takes care of Hayden, and is back in bed within five minutes. Two...

Thanksgiving In February

February 10, 2010

Perhaps I was temporarily insane when I came up with this idea.  I mean, cooking Thanksgiving dinner is quite an undertaking, even when you spread it out amongst several cooks.  But, when my CSA box arrived yesterday with two bunches of green onions, celery, and potatoes, Thanksgiving dinner was all I could think to...

Lessons In Child Psychology

February 4, 2010

Twice a week, Hayden and I go to Kindergym.  The same kids and parents are there every time.  The teacher adores them.  Hayden loves the routine and familiar faces. This month, two new faces appeared at Kindergym.  An adorable little girl brought by her nanny, a friendly, jovial type.  The first time Hayden saw...

The Sweetest

January 20, 2010

Before I got married I had six theories about bringing up children; now I have six children, and no theories. ~John Wilmot Before you have a baby, you think you know what you are getting yourself into.  You read parenting books.  You research online.  You talk to your tummy and get the nursery ready. ...
