We have found ourselves speechless at the things Big Brother says more and more lately…

Two weeks ago, we overheard Big Brother running around in his playroom with his butterfly net saying ” I cut you!” over and over. What? Turns out he “got” him.

While D was changing Big Brother he was very interested in what […]

Mini Milestones

On February 16, 2012 By

We’re all aware of the major milestones in your newborn’s life. You’ve got a first smile, first tooth, first steps, words, etc. But what about all those little  milestons? The ones that build up and prepare them for the major milestones.

Personally, I find the mini milestones to be so much more fun. They then […]

The War of the Bottles

On February 9, 2012 By

So here we are, day two of going back to work and Little Miss Fussy Pants doesn’t want to take a bottle. Ugh! I’m totally confused, because she took a bottle a few days ago, then again with hubs and YESTERDAY morning with no problems. But all of the sudden… BOOM! No more bottles for […]

I want it all

On February 7, 2012 By

I came across a quick discussion point on Babble, “THE MOMMY WARS REVISITED: WHY DOES ANYBODY CARE WHETHER WE WORK OR STAY AT HOME?” The point of this article was to get some feedback, cause people to think. But for me, it just points out how much more that I want it all. […]

This is a question I have been thinking about a lot lately. My toddler doesn’t seem to understand this concept.

Hitting… hurts. Biting… hurts. Kicking… hurts. And no matter what I do I can’t seem to teach him these lessons. This all exploded the other night. It wasn’t a pretty scene.

The Santa Dilemma

On December 9, 2011 By

So Christmas is fast approaching and we are still yet to decide on what to do about Santa…

Most of our relatives teach their kids about Santa. But I’m just not sure. I’m very torn. On the one hand I don’t want to lie to Big Brother. But I also don’t want to deprive him […]

Father to be… of a daughter…

On September 27, 2011 By

I still vividly remember the conversation with my friend Jen when she found out she was having a girl. I remember her talking about how important her husband’s role would be. The magnitude of importance that he would play in her daughter’s life forever changed my view of fathers in daughters lives.

A father […]

Sometimes you have to break the rules

On September 19, 2011 By

We’re pretty strict parents. We’re more strict than any other parents that we know. But it seems to be working out ok. G is a pretty rambunctious little man, and rules and boundaries help keep him safe and having fun.

We have had lots of people see photos of him and his crazy cute […]

What’s in a name anyway?

On September 2, 2011 By

So here I am 32 weeks pregnant… could blow at any minute really. And we have NO name. None. Nada. Zilch.

With G we had three choices at this point, and we knew we would not make a decision until he was born. But this time, we’ve got nothing. D flips daily on […]

And so we caved

On August 11, 2011 By

In keeping with the world’s worst mother of the year feeling… I caved. It was me, all me. So I guess the title of this post should be I caved, not we.

On what you ask?

Well we had taken away the pacifier… had.

So the first night was ok. He only asked for […]
