Dear Stranger…

Tweet Dear Random Stranger, Back away from my child! Right now! I’m not sure why you think it’s appropriate to touch him. I am also not sure why you think it’s not appropriate for him to tell you “no”. He’s a person and he doesn’t know you. Why would he let a stranger touch him?…

Things I Can’t Say

Tweet There is nothing like becoming a parent to make you take a closer look at yourself.  It’s like holding up a mirror and seeing all of your flaws crystal clear. I’ve found that I pay more attention to what I do AND what I say! Some things that were totally harmless before don’t seem…

It’s Potty Time!

Tweet There are signs. There are always signs. When my son was a baby, he would nod his head in the direction of my boobage with his mouth wide open to signal to me that he was hungry. When he started to eat food, he gave signals. His little mouth would water with anticipation of…

No Buts About It

Tweet For me, motherhood came with a lot of questions. What is labor really like? How does breastfeeding work? How am I supposed to function with no sleep?

Meet the Bruiser

Tweet We have started calling our son the bruiser. He’s so wild sometimes and if you happen to get in the way – you will get hurt. I’ve been on the receiving end of many of his wild antics. Many are just because he’s so darn excited! When he gets excited, he’ll start stomping his…

Don’t Kiss That Baby!!!

Tweet To kiss or not to kiss? That’s the question I have for you. I was browsing a few mommy sites not too long ago and came across a topic that stuck with me. The post was by the mom of a little girl. She posed the question of kissing your child on the lips….

Tots on the pole

Tweet If your daughter decides to hit the pole at 18, you’d probably question yourself. Where did you go wrong? Why did she make that choice? At the end of the day though, it would have been her choice as a consenting adult. Sucky choice, but her choice. The same can’t be said when it’s…
