vroom vroom

vroom vroom

I bought my first car ever a week after I graduated from college. I had never had a ride of my own before, always using my parents’ cars to go where I needed to go. Because I was oh-so-deprived, I wasn’t very picky about what car I bought- ANY car was awesome to me. So… KEEP READING »


13 months

13 months

Dear Maggie, So far, having a 1-year-old has been kind of hard. The month started just fine, a good 1-year checkup at the doctor, just one immunization shot that you handled pretty well, and a fun day-trip to my friend Susan’s baby shower. Pretty uneventful. Then your daddy left town for 11 days and I… KEEP READING »

hands, feet, and mouths, oh my!

hands, feet, and mouths, oh my!

So! If you didn’t catch my Tweet this morning, we believe we have solved The Mystery of The Demon Child. She’s got Hand-Foot-Mouth disease. The name makes it sound absolutely, completely disgusting, and my sister and I talked about how it conjures up an image of someone gnawing on their dirty foot. But really? It’s… KEEP READING »

You may find yourself frightened beyond comprehension. You have been warned. If you are ‘childless-by-choice’, and want to reaffirm your decision, by all means, read on…. KEEP READING »


SOS! please send help!

SOS! please send help!

Last night around 11, just after we went to bed, Maggie woke up screaming. And when I say ‘screaming’, I mean frantic, hiccuping, inconsolable screaming. The kind that was starting to scare us with its intensity and the way it just wouldn’t stop. She didn’t feel hot, although she had be running a low fever… KEEP READING »


alone no more

alone no more

Internet, I’ve been lying to you all week. Not maliciously, and not really about anything that important. But because since becoming a Mom, I’ve turned quite paranoid about The World, especially the Internet World (I spent Thursday night making pretty much every Flickr picture on my account that had a person in it ‘Friends &… KEEP READING »

flickr is now my beeyotch

flickr is now my beeyotch

For the last few years, I’ve had two picture websites. My Flickr account was mainly used for my ‘blog world’ so I could easily share pictures with my online friends and also post to my blog. I also had another site on my own server that I used to share pictures with my real-life family… KEEP READING »


introspective on my birthday

introspective on my birthday

So today I turn 29. TWENTY. NINE. That sounds so… old. Like I’m a grownup or something. When I was a kid, I remember hearing people say that they were 29 and thinking Wow, that sounds so adult and mature! I can’t wait to be that age! And now that I am 29? I certainly… KEEP READING »

teeth and spending money on stuff

It feels like there are about 6,923 things going on my head lately, so trying to pick just one to make into a blog entry is pretty much impossible. Soooo… here’s a bunch of things! Maggie is teething. We think. Last week she had that weird fever for a day or so, which could have… KEEP READING »

let’s talk about rainbows and unicorns for a while!

let’s talk about rainbows and unicorns for a while!

Wow, is it just me or has the Internet been kind of a downer this week? And my blog hasn’t been helping. Let’s do something completely pointless and silly, shall we? (borrowed from Mel) 1. I’ve come to realize that my butt: will never look like this. 2. I’ve come to realize that when I… KEEP READING »


again with the perspective

again with the perspective

I was going to post a snarky, funny entry about how my period was messing with me again this month, having me convinced that I was surprisingly pregnant (I’m not.) I was nauseous for 2 days, and some things were happening with my girl-stuff that were identical to those that happened when I WAS pregnant… KEEP READING »

If you haven’t seen it already, please read Emily’s post about her close friends and their 16-month-old daughter. Maybe it’s because my baby is close in age, but my heart was breaking reading their story. Help if you can, and spread the word.
