I am fortunate enough to belong to a group of women who have started making ‘Mommies’ Night Out’ (aka MNO) a monthly ritual. Last night was our 3rd or 4th time to get together and it was an incredible night!! Continue reading…

Groceries at Amazon

Did you know that Amazon is selling GROCERIES now??? (What will they think of next, right??) Most of it is non-perishable products that you buy in bulk (like 5 boxes of cereal for $20), and of course they don’t do fresh meats, dairy or produce yet, but they say they’re even working on that!

So, here’s the cool thing… Right now they’re running a promotional where you can get $10 off any purchases over $49.99. So, I just bought Ethan a BIG box of diapers and a huge 3 pack of wipes and saved some moulah at the same time! PLUS, I didn’t have to even get off the couch, much less get dressed, get the kids dressed, get in the car, drive to the store… Well, you get the idea.

It’s Too Quiet…

By Kay on Fri, Aug 11, 2006


If you’re a mom, then you know what this post is going to be about just by the title. We’ve all had that sensation when you suddenly feel all of your senses go on heightened alert as you realize, “It’s too quiet in this house”. Of course, you immediately stop whatever it was that had you so engrossed and oblivious just nano-seconds previously to get up and follow your gut-instinct to whichever room of the house it leads you. Sometimes you are fortunate enough to walk in the room and find the kids just quietly reading a book, or coloring (in a coloring book and NOT on the walls and furniture), or playing with their dolls and cars. But sometimes, that fortune just isn’t on your side… Continue reading…

Fussy Newborn

Q: If my newborn is fussy, and I’ve eliminated diaper change and burping, I don’t want to just assume that he’s hungry and nurse him. However, if he is acting hungry but it’s not “time” to feed him, can I assume he really is hungry? (The question being: will he act hungry and “root” if he is just gassy or in need of TLC?)

I just don’t know what to do with the fussiness. I feel bad because I don’t know what’s wrong. What did you do with Ethan those first weeks when he was so unhappy? What was your method of elimination? Continue reading…

Holy cow!! Great use of visuals to help explain the proposed budget cuts and their actual impact on the overall budget.

You’ll never fold tshirts the same way again!

If you ever wanted to hear someone put a mommy’s day into a song, try this one! (I guarantee you’ll laugh your butt off.)

A little on the political side, but interesting nonetheless…
