Bathtime

Tonight I am inspired by my daughter’s little shoulderblades.B and I have been spelling out B-A-T-H so much that soon it will be a code for nothing and just another way to tell her that it’s Time. We tell her it’s time for a bath and she runs straight to the tub. Even though she doesn’t need to, she bathes every day because why not? Babies know simple pleasures better than anyone else....more

The Part Where I Get Sad on Mother's Day

Even though Sunday was my second officially-sanctioned Mothers Day as a mom, it was effectively my first one. Last year, C was only about five weeks old on Mothers Day and I had no energy or desire to celebrate. No one was sleeping, no one was eating well, no one felt like a human. I was paying my dues in the New Baby Club and stocking up on the experiences that would make me truly relish the return of sleep. If this was motherhood, I’d take a pass on celebrating it....more

Shameless Self-Promoting

I've spent part of my afternoon 'googling' trying to find out how to promote myself. Who does that?!? Seriously, who takes time out of their busy life to try to find a way to promote their blog/facebook fan page? (By the way, my fan page is www.facebook.com/TodaysWordsOfGlass) Check it out and like it pretty please. ;)...more

Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head. . . No Those Are Tears From a Tantrum.

Where do you live? I live in Decatur (Atlanta suburb), Georgia and the weather is odd! Not very spring-like I must say. While I must say that we are luckier than our friends on the mid-west who are going through a May snow storm, it has been cool, cloudy and damp here for a while. I have seen Homer Simpson refer to it as "Smarch". Smarch is the thirteenth month of the year that is filled with colder than usual temperatures and snow. I think we can all agree that is what is going on....more

My Daughter's Laughter is My Happy Place

I’m coming off a high induced by playing a rudimentary version of Hide and Seek with C. After dinner, I put in The Fox and the Hound just to see if she was interested in watching it. She wasn’t (surprise), but she was wily. She was ready to play that brand of play that possesses babies like the Holy Spirit at a big tent revival. There is something about the interim period between the end of dinner and the beginning of her bedtime ritual that makes the air electric and charged with that same guileless air she wears so effortlessly all the time....more

Why Raising Triplet Toddlers Can Feel Impossible (But Still Totally Worth It)

Toddlers are fun. They can walk, they can talk and they even have little personalities, but they’re difficult too. They don’t do much listening, they want things done their way and they’re fairly strong to top it off!...more
Anyone else ever feel the same way???more

Love on a leash

Chances are, if you're reading this, you have a strong opinion on child leashes. In my experience, I've found most parents can be classified into one of two categories: pro-leash parents, who have found that leashing their wandering offspring in public keeps them sane, and their children safe and secure. These parents have given a collective middle finger to the rest of parental population and their looks of shame....more

A Guide to Flying with Toddlers (and not losing it.)

Just a mere seven days ago I flew internationally with my two toddlers sans a co-parent. ME. SOLO. I survived. Here's how. ...more
