Happy First Birthday, Eudora!

Happy First Birthday, Eudora!
March 21, 2013
One year ago today, I started the morning out just sure that it was the day.  I spent some time in bed timing my contractions.  They stayed pretty consistent.  The husband called our doula.  I ate strawberries for breakfast and then threw them back up.  In the end, I spent a... Read More

Child Empathy Warms My Heart

Child Empathy Warms My Heart
May 2, 2013
There are times when my son can surprise me.  I'd always thought that maybe I was doing something wrong since I didn't understand how to teach child empathy.  On one hand, I recognize that toddler behavior requires a certain amount of being self-absorbed... but on the other ... Read More

My Baby Has a Milk Intolerance – Now what?

April 8, 2013
My baby has a milk intolerance.  Yuck.  Like most people who have a child with a food allergy or intolerance, I have to say that I'm doing a lot of things differently already.  That Eudora has a milk intolerance has been a bit of a hiccup.  You see, the husband loves cheese.... Read More

Child Gun Safety, Kentucky, and Tragedy

Child Gun Safety, Kentucky, and TragedyEveryone has their own opinions on gun safety.  Some think that gun safety is only doable by eliminating guns.  Some think that gun safety means shoot the other guy first.  I'm pretty sure the majority of us lean towards "increased background checks" as a reasonable alternat...

Rape Prevention Education

Rape Prevention EducationI'm a mother of three. My two littles are a ways off from this discussion.  I've never had a rape prevention discussion with my fifteen year old.  Part of the reason I never felt the need to have a rape prevention discussion with my fifteen year old is because he's a boy.  I...

Buying Baby Formula? Check Your Dates

Buying Baby Formula?  Check Your DatesSometimes when we're in the supermarket, our minds are going a million miles an hour.  For me, a typical shopping trip means at least one child with me (sometimes none or both, but usually one), an iPhone in my hand for a grocery list, stopping at three stores, and trying to...

Best iPhone Case EVER

Best iPhone Case EVERI love my iPhone.  Prior to having my iPhone, I had a Blackberry.  I thought it was the best thing in the world until I dropped it in a puddle and killed it.  When I got my iPhone, it was given to me in a very popular case: the Otterbox Defender.  A lot of people out there t...

Does Fair Parenting Mean Same Parenting?

Does Fair Parenting Mean Same Parenting?
May 13, 2013
I read a blog post recently from another mom who treats her children equally.  Her five year old earned a toy as a reward... so she bought a new toy, of equal cash value, for her thirteen month old.  To her, it was only fair parenting.  Now, I won't say that I think that she was wrong to do this.  But I will say that I'm not convinced I'd have do...
