His Smile Says It All

His Smile Says It All

What you see here is one very happy little boy. Tonight the B-Man is wearing Pull ups for the first time. He (myself included) was so excited to wear them. While he hasn’t used the big boy potty yet, this is definitely a step in the right direction.

I would have paid you $50 NOT to steal it

This past Thursday my hubby, who works downtown, had to work late.  That night when he went to start up the car he was greeted by a loud roaring noise (think stock car races) coming from the rear of the car.    While he was working, someone [...]

Freaking out a Pregnant Woman…

This past Saturday I took the boys and their friend ‘A’ to the pool. The boys had a blast and after a while I decided to call A’s Mom and see if she would mind if we stayed a while longer. So I call A’s mom and a woman that I cannot understand answers the [...]

Interested in your thoughts….

This is so weird. This morning I received an email from a woman asking me to update a blog post from January. The woman, Lisa Giassa, had been quoted in an MSNBC article on Mommy vs. Non-Mommy relationships and let’s just say I disagreed with (was offended by) her stance. Here is the email she [...]
