First day at the park, it’s beginning to feel like Spring

For the first time in forever, the weather and lack of snow allowed us a trip to the park. Yes, it's April 2 and it's the FIRST time we've been at a park since December.

Rubbermaid, for all of your food storage

I just looked at my previous post date (almost two months ago) and nearly fell off my couch. OK, that's a false statement, I almost fell asleep, but that's because I worked at Dunkin last night from midnight to 6am and am freaking exhausted. Somewhere around Halloween of last year I took on an overnight … Continue reading Rubbermaid, for all of your food storage

Unit, in all his quirky glory

Like most every kids, Unit has his fair share of stuffed animals. And quirks. His bed looks like it's been invaded by cotton-filled creatures but he still digs in and carves out a nice little spot for himself to sleep every day and night.

Pros and cons of being an at-home parent

I'm surprised that confetti and Skittles didn't fall from the sky seeing how I'm the one millionth person to put this idea into their blog, but I'm going to do it anyway. Take from it what you will: if you're one of the previous 999,999 to already do this, take solace in knowing I did not copy from … Continue reading Pros and cons of being an at-home parent

Noises in the night

Last night, or should I say very early this morning, there were some rumblings from G-Unit's bedroom, and by rumblings, I mean crying. The first time, at 12:30am required me to go in there and rock him back to sleep. Save your opinions on letting the kid "cry it out," because if the kid is … Continue reading Noises in the night

I AM in control of my own destiny

Music & Movement at the library; eating while sleeping

For the second week in a row, we headed to our local library, which kicks butt, for Wednesday's "Music & Movement" class. It's a music enriched program consisting of a before and after stretching routine. songs, dance, and a lot of constant movement. In other words, a blessing for parents who are looking for a way … Continue reading Music & Movement at the library; eating while sleeping

Playground parting is such sweet sorrow for Unit and his ‘friends’

The playground is such a blissful place for a three-year-old: a boundless play area, obstacles galore, swings out the wazoo ... and other kids. Unit is what you'd consider an outsider, just like his old man. He'll casually observe others' behaviors before determining if he should or should not "befriend" said other. There's nothing wrong with … Continue reading Playground parting is such sweet sorrow for Unit and his ‘friends’

(At-home) Parents ARE allowed to have hobbies, alone time

Despite lacking the "alone" time to enjoy things as we did before our tiny humans arrived, stay-at-home and work-at-home parents (and ALL parents, really) are allowed to have hobbies that DO NOT involve the child(ren) they care for every day. Here's a list of a few luxuries I enjoyed before having kids: quiet road trips to Anywhere, USA that didn't … Continue reading (At-home) Parents ARE allowed to have hobbies, alone time
