The title alone grabbed my attention, and the content and related links did too. She said that the schools are failing at doing DPA (Daily Physical Activity). She also said this: [...]

If you read my personal site at all, then you know that we are dealing with some Crazy, with a side dish of Batshit Insane. I really don't want to write about it here, or anywhere anymore. It has consumed our lives for the last week and a half and he can sit in his [...]

A few months ago I shared the story of how (I was judged by a home-birth proponent, and) I am a fan of giving birth in the hospital. I wrote about the birth in full detail, but here's a clip that will set the stage for what I'm going to write about. And push I [...]

Seven summers ago, we had a house fire. It was … well, it was horrible. It could have been so much worse than it was, but we all made it out safely and (bonus that I didn't care about at all once we were outside and alive), we only lost one rocking chair and a [...]

Bad Moms Let Their Kids Suck Their Thumbs

mom and baby

My youngest child, my only daughter, is a thumb-sucker. As soon as her newborn bad self could wedge her thumb into her mouth (6-8 weeks?)(It's a blur)(Her two older brothers were two and three-and-a-half at the time), she would. She inherited my husband's “sleeping gene”, but the thumb sucking has made her the best sleeper [...]

Great strides have been made to make sure that prayer and God and anything remotely “Christian” has nothing to do with the public school system. People don't want their kids to be exposed to a faith not their own and so there is no more saying of The Lord's Prayer in schools, and many don't [...]

If you know me in real life, you know that I am an introverted extrovert, with a bit of a fiery streak. It takes me a lot to get worked up, or even angry, but when it happens, it isn't pretty. Don't make me angry. You won't like me when I'm angry. It is so [...]

Well, we don't promote lying in our house, but we do leave crucial information out. Our kids are getting older and with that comes the idea that we should keep them in the loop on what's going on. One example: They now understand the concept of time, so we can tell them about an upcoming [...]

It's been a rough couple of weeks at my house. The second half of January saw my husband and I being hit from all sides emotionally, professionally, and physically. I usually muster up the enthusiasm to bounce back up and blaze on, but for the first time in my life, I haven't had it in [...]

Bad Temporarily Single Parent

I can nap right here, thanks.

The house looks like someone picked it up and shook it. Deadline after deadline whizzes by my head, each one like a nuclear powered dragonfly armed with missiles. Emails sit unopened, telltale coffee rings adorn the countertop from when I frantically guzzled my almost-completely-cold coffee in one gulp just to get the caffeine in to [...]
