I was one of the last of my friends to have kids, so I haven’t had the chance to be around many newborns, since my youngest grew out of the baby stage. I’ve been totally fine with that; one stepdaughter and two that grew inside of me are more than enough. To top it off, […]
I have, in the past, made my feelings known about Caillou. This is not exactly an unpopular opinion, amongst parents. Most people agree that the little fucker is whiny, demanding and sets a pretty awful example for our kids. Hell, the Fournado learned the word “stupid” from watching the show. Thanks, Caillou.

I’m not a winter person. I’m even LESS of a winter person when I’m struggling with pneumonia. Being a parent with all of these things happening can suck.

There is nothing worse than the sound of my husband snoring through the baby monitor. The poor guy has sleep apnea, and most nights, he puts this crazy contraption on that controls his snoring. Or at least stifles it. Or…well, I can’t hear it because the white noise of the CPAP machine drowns it out. […]
Shortly after meeting my husband, he introduced me to A Song of Ice and Fire, knowing how much I loved great fantasy novels. I devoured every book in the series that had been written up until then, and spent years wondering when George R. R. Martin would have the next one finished. Then the announcement […]
