Bringing Up Bebe: A Book Review

After about 6 months and I’m sure at least 6 books in between, I’ve just finished reading the book “Bringing Up Bebe, One American Mother Discovers the Wisdom of French Parenting” by Pamela Druckerman.  I’m not one to get caught up in parenting books, as I don’t subscribe to any one parenting model but rather … Continue reading


In the weeks that Sofia has learned to crawl, she’s also learned that she is independent from me.  Which when you think about it, must be a pretty crazy feeling for a baby who spends the first 8 months (or so) of their life practically attached to you.  She travels around the house at will, … Continue reading

The Leviathan

Hello dear readers.  I’m glad you haven’t given up on me and this blog.  I’m a little distracted today.  As of right this moment my little darling is supposed to be well into her morning nap, but is sitting up in her crib, playing with her bunny and chatting to herself and me. Oh wait….silence…YES!  … Continue reading

A Re-post: Porn for Pregnant Ladies

Happy Thanksgiving my friends! This week has been a bit of a write off as I’ve been too damned tired to get it together to post anything. My darling daughter has been somewhat of a Holy Terror during the nights which makes Momma here a sloppy mess by morning. In my zombie-like state, I have … Continue reading

What Baby??????

This weekend I had the opportunity to cash in a gift certificate for an entire spa package at the Stillwater Spa.  I’ve been dying to use it since I received it 6 months ago, but the timing was never right.  So Saturday was my day to experience 8 solid hours of blissful relaxation.  The last … Continue reading

Sometimes Babies are Disgusting

Yes, it’s true.  I don’t mean to burst your “my baby is the cutest thing ever” bubble.  I’m sure almost everything they do is cute. HOWEVER. You must not have experienced Baby’s First (or second) Cold yet.  Not cute.  Mostly sad and disgusting.  And maybe you’ve been told that old adage “it’s not gross when … Continue reading



I’m sorry but I must make an amendment to something in one of my previous posts.  Here is what my comment was: “Sleep is now my bitch.” This is not true.  I let my quick success go to my newbie parent head and grossly underestimated Sleep and her “dark dealings” with infants.  It was all … Continue reading

Sisterhood of the Time Travelling Pants

Jennifer Hudson should be singing for me today. Today I put on my most favorite pair of Joes Jeans…and they fit….well…kinda.  I can do them up and sit down and not be worried about the button shooting off at high velocity and putting a hole in the wall.  These jeans have a history.  My SIL … Continue reading


Well, we made it home.  Everyone is alive and thriving.  Great things those vacations!  After two and a half weeks we’re rested, rejuvenated and willing to keep on keepin’ on.  No trial separation necessary!  I feel like while we were gone, Sofia changed drastically.  She’s now got two teeth, babbling away (pretty sure she’s saying … Continue reading

Happy Holidays

I must apologize for my blogging absence.  It wasn’t because I didn’t want to.  Let’s just say I was gathering research for my next post.  See, we left a week and a half ago for our long-awaited summer vacation to Vancouver and our family cabin in the Shuswap.  Since then, I’ve learned so much more … Continue reading
