Baby C is getting closer and closer to hitting his first birthday. I can’t believe it, and because I know this is my last child, I’m feeling a little bittersweet. There are plenty of things I know I will not miss about the baby stage, but when I stop to think about them, I have […]
When I refer to my kids as little assholes, I have always kind of excluded baby C, for the most part. He is, after all a baby. Most of the things he does that are aggravating (like shitty breastfeeding, for example) are not his fault. He’s just doing his baby thing in the best way […]
If your child is anything like mine, he can sleep through the apocalypse, once he’s deep in sleep. However, falling asleep requires a special kind of silent juju that I still haven’t got straight, after 2 kids. Here, in no particular order, are the things that will send baby C from dozing peacefully to to babbling […]
Ever lost something you KNOW you just saw recently? Of course you have. We all do it. It’s usually your keys or your glasses. Or maybe your wedding ring. Hopefully not, though.

CONFESSION TIME. Okay, here goes: in a world where everyone talks about baby milestones, there’s one I REALLY don’t want baby C to hit right now. Crawling. Does that make me the asshole? Hah. Probably. He’s trying! His other leg is in front, FYI. He does have 2 legs.
You know that moment, after spending fifteen minutes tossing your baby in the air, and poking his belly and tickling him because his laugh is just. so. amazing? That moment when you’re reveling in the serotonin surge and general feeling-goodness that comes from listening to (and being the cause of!) a baby’s belly laugh? Enjoy […]
