OH THE HUMANITY

OH THE HUMANITY

Just in case Dan decides I’m being dramatic when he gets home from his trip this week and I tell him that Maggie was an absolute MONSTER, I have proof. Keep in mind, this was AFTER a 30 minute scream-fest at the top of the stairs, during which she refused to walk down the steps… KEEP READING »

The scene: Husband (Very Helpful Husband) is out of town unexpectedly. Ten people are coming to your house for a candle party tomorrow night. House is a mess. You are feeling every bit like you’re in the first trimester of pregnancy because- HEY! Guess what! You are! Long day of work. Headed to pick up… KEEP READING »

She spins around the living room (usually wearing a dress or one of her princess outfits) and makes herself dizzy. She stops and says “WHOA! The house is falling!” — The only place we have child locks in the house is on our tv cabinet. And she recently learned how to open those (so Hello!… KEEP READING »

I’ve always been one for remembering dates. The first date for Dan and me. The day he proposed. The day I found out I was pregnant with Maggie. The day we closed on our first house.

Only at the table so far, because she doesn’t quite get that you can’t just toss your cup of milk onto the couch if it… KEEP READING »

an ode to The Man

When Dan and I got married (nearly 8 years ago!), I knew he was a Good Guy.

He’s always been supportive of everything I’ve wanted to do-… KEEP READING »

So apparently, when the Baby Websites and Magazines and Books tell you that your second pregnancy will probably start becoming physically obvious a lot sooner, THEY MEAN IT. You guys. I’m seven weeks pregnant. And I can’t button my pants anymore. (At least not without worrying that I’m strangling my poor little bean in there!… KEEP READING »

I feel like such a HUGE! ANNOUNCEMENT! should have some big build-up, some sentimental prose, rambling on and on to give the event the treatment it deserves. But alas, I’m also EXHAUSTED BEYOND ALL COMPREHENSION, and a little queasy, and the energy it would take to compose such a paragraph would probably KILL ME. So… KEEP READING »
