That’s Toilet Talk!

As a parent, I know that I sometimes get excited over stuff that leaves other people completely and utterly bored. I try not to subject people to too much diaper talk, but here’s my reasoning: If you’re reading this article, then most likely you’re a parent/parental figure and will share my excitement over potty training [...]

Hurry! Hurry! Hurry! It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

It’s the holidays and time for… RUSHING?! MyHero and the boys have two weeks off from school/work. We should be relaxing, right? No, sir. Before the end of the year we will: Spring clean (winter clean?) the house in preparation for company, finish Christmas shopping, Smelly will have two doctors appointments (God willing, it will [...]

He’s Gone and I’m Still Not Pregnant

My husband came home for R&R and we gave TTC naturally one last try. I had all the signs of ovulation-well, other than what shows on OPK and BBT; did not want the stress of doing those-so we were hopeful. Well, AF came today so no miracle R&R baby for us. I was not really [...]

Holiday Jumble: Making Christmas Ornaments

I have a confession to make. I have already decorated for Christmas. I know, I know. I swore I’d hold out until the day after Thanksgiving. Then I was sorting through clothes, moving winter clothes into closets and summer clothes into storage. Well, as long as MyHero and I were shifting things around storage we [...]

Preparing for TTC and IVF

In XX weeks, my husband will be home for R&R, and we plan to TTC once more on our own before going through with IVF. Since deciding to TTC once more on our own, I’ve been making some decisions to try to get my body (and spirit) ready to bake a baby bean. First on [...]

Food allergies can range from the slightly annoying to the life-threatening. Some people find food allergies by accident, via anaphylactic shock, while others learn from a visit to an allergist. Familiarizing yourself with [...]

It’s not too soon to discuss Halloween, is it? I saw Christmas decorations on sale in Target, so I figure Halloween is quickly approaching. Halloween has become a big deal in our house. I’m not sure when that happened, but costume options are discussed year round. New ideas are raised monthly, and it’s fun. Each [...]

My Evolution as a Mom

When I had my first baby, I was short to temper and quick to impatience. I was more concentrated on everything LOOKING perfect, rather than being okay. I cooked and cleaned and did laundry all. Day. Long. While a sweet-tempered, patient baby sat waiting for my attention. When I should have been coaxing grins and [...]

I haven’t written in a while, truthfully because since P is deployed, we are on a forced TTC break and waiting until a certain month to do IVF in the hopes that he’ll be home for the birth. Right now we are in a holding pattern which is good and stressful at the same time. [...]

It is that time of year. Back-to-school time! Don’t get me wrong…I sooo enjoy my boys. As the end of each school year approaches, I start to get giddy thinking of all the fun stuff I have planned for them. They get giddy thinking about sleeping in late, marathon TV sessions and limitless video games. [...]
