Somebody To Scream At

January 17, 2011

After my son was born, he cried. He screamed at the top of his lungs in the operating room, and again in the recovery room, and again in our room-in hospital room.  Everyone remarked on how “strong” he was.  The didn’t-help-a-damn-bit lactation consultant said my son was working out his aggression about the birth. ...

It’s All Or Nothing

December 14, 2010

So, after enduring three days of extreme throat pain, difficulty eating, fever, aches and chills, I found myself in the emergency room.  Since I am all about cost effective, preventative medicine.  Ehem. Diagnosis?  Strep throat.  I left with many prescription medications, one of which put me into a blissful state of tolerance as I...

Giant Scary Vegetable Penis

November 19, 2010

This evening’s Play Doh scenario: Hayden: I want to make a giant vegetable.  A scary one. Mommy:  Ooo, a giant vegetable?  Beaming with pride because my three year-old loves vegetables so much that he wants to make them out of Play Doh. Daddy: Why scary? Hayden: I want it to be scary like Halloween....

Little Lovebirds

November 15, 2010

They met at the gym.  Kindergym, to be exact.  And it was love at first sight.   And now, my three year-old has a girlfriend. This is legit.  Starry-eyed, hand-holding, I want to tickle you, completely crazy love. The girl is great.  We love her.   In fact, if they manage to avoid cooties and grow...

Mommy, I Need You To Take Care Of Me

November 10, 2010

This is what Hayden says to me after a fake bobo he reportedly sustained on the landing of our poorly carpeted stairs (other than rugburn on the bottoms of his feet, there was no possibility of injury caused by our rough, yet cushioned, carpet). Mommy, I need you to take care of me. As...

It’s Friday. Let’s Rock.

October 29, 2010

As I kiss Hayden goodbye, I can feel this morning’s coffee in my bladder.  I go through a mental checklist of all the things I need to get done in the next three hours.  As I turn the corner, my car escapes the shade of giant oaks and I can feel the warmth of...

The Poop Goes On…

August 26, 2010

Hayden and I attempted a little outing to the park this morning.  Since the big kids are already back in school, I knew it wouldn’t be too crowded, which is always annoying.  Nothing like an over-sized nine year old barreling through a toddler-sized maze of playground equipment.  I always want to turn to whatever...

Why Me?

August 23, 2010

I was one of those days.  Hayden is home from school until after Labor Day- yes, he just started preschool, but I got used to being able to wash the dishes in under an hour. After a morning trip to IKEA to get a big boy bed, assembling it using as few curse words...

I Miss My Mommy

June 25, 2010

I heard this many times this week.  It was Hayden’s first week of preschool.  And for the first time in awhile I couldn’t wait to pick him up from school, hold him, cater to him.  Because I missed him, too. The transition of going from spending 6.85 days a week with Mommy to spending...

Motherhood Is…

May 7, 2010
Motherhood Is…

Motherhood is like co-dependency. I long to get away.  To snap my fingers and instantly be somewhere hot and dry, sipping drinks with my girlfriends.  As much as I long to escape, even if just for a weekend, I can’t bear the thought of being away from my son.   I think I need...

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...

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. ...
