Saying goodbye to Meeny & Miney

I can barely type because of this God-awful rash on my hand.  It doesn’t look bad but it is making me miserable.  I think it is stress induced and is an irritating distraction to my day. I have been taking tests since I did my trigger shot a couple weeks ago.  You can see all…

A Boy and his Gorilla

Since birth, Jonah has gone through a number of different comfort items. You could call them lovies, snoodles, binkies, security blankets, or babies. Every child has some strange item that he or she has attached themselves to. At the preschool I taught at, there was a toddler who was attached to the very edge of…

Becoming a "Big Boy"

Jonah is definitely moving out of his baby stage and into the toddler stage. I realized this more than ever last week, as I cleaned out his toy area in anticipation of our holiday guests. While I’ve been pretty good about switching out his clothes and diapers as he outgrows them, I have never packed…

Boxes are the best!

Screw all the new toys! Boxes are so much fun. They can be anything. At one point, Tio was flying a plane & then we decided to make it a car. The kids LOVED being in the box w/ him.

One Word

Well, just like laundry and dinnertime, a New Year is already so quickly upon me and I feel equally unprepared by its prospect.  Here I am still trying to process the events of 2009 and 2010 is already tugging at my shirt-tail and pestering me with questions: “What are we gonna do now?  Where are…

Cloth Diapers Made in the US and Canada

One of my favorite things about Cloth Diapers is that they are part of a close knit, cottage industry.  So many cloth diaper companies started off as mom run businesses.  The diapers were sewn with love, by hand, and sold directly to the consumer.  In fact, there are hundreds of diaper brands who still do…

Bummis Organic Cotton Prefold Kit Review

Bummis cloth diapers have been around for a long time.  I bought many used ones when I was pregnant, but this was when I was ignorant about cloth diapers.  I didn’t realize that they were more than used, they were abused.  While I could have been ok using them, I bought some other covers instead…

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

It’s been snowing and blowing and freezing and flurry-ing around here.  Miserable, really.  The bitter winds have been wreaking havok with our front porch decorations as well. I was walking past my front door yesterday and encountered this guy.  Apparently he wants back in. “Pardon me, could I trouble you for some warm milk and…

Happy Birthday Daddy

My dad would have been 61 today. He passed away 5 years ago on April 14th, 2004. He had a massive heart attack while walking our dog that morning. He wasn’t sick, he was just taken from us too soon. I dreamt about my dad for the first time last night, the first time in…

Christmas 2009.. over & done!

We had a fabulous Christmas Day!!  I woke up on and off from 5am, but I woke at 6.15am, and Gaby woke up too – so I figured that was a decent enough time to start Christmas Day.  Gaby seemed to have forgotten about Santa, as it wasn’t until she came back to the bedroom…
