Co-sleeping: a (not) controversial piece

My baby slept through the night from the time we came home from the hospital, where we could sleep in peace since there were no nurses to disturb us. She slept in our room, in her pack n’ play, until she was four months old. Almost to the day....more
Thank you Robin! @SunbonnetSmart.com Yes, we do love the heck out of those little beasts!!more

Every emergency plan should include ginger ale

My wake up call came at 3:30 this morning. The baby was up, this time with a little drama, which required nursing, rocking, back rubbing. The funny thing is I kept hearing some sort of faint moaning/crying sound. I was thinking ghosts at first. I mean, naturally, right?And then I thought there was something intuitive going on in my brain. There was a child close to me suffering somewhere. Something was up.And then the baby was almost asleep on my shoulder when I heard the cry from the next room. You know the cry.Like a siren in the night....more

My Baby Girl is 1!

This past Friday was my daughter's first birthday! That morning she woke up with a fever of 101.5 and was not up to any kind of birthday fun. What a way to spend her very first birthday! I've been planning her party for the past couple weeks and it happened to be on Sunday so all I could do was pray that she was feeling better by then. After pumping her full of antibiotics, fluids and baby tylenol for a couple days, she was feeling well enough for her party, but I, on the other hand, was completely exhausted lol....more
She's FINALLY feeling better! Over a week later, but at least she's healthy again and sleeping ...more

Whatever.

8:50am: I think I hear her. Yep. She's crying. She's sick. Poor baby. I struggle to put my feet to the floor because my body is saying, if you move from this bed I will launch a revolt... try me sister... I dare you....more

Another trip to the ER goes badly…Thank God for DAN Doctors

Monday, was such a long day. We did our normal, all day therapy. We visited some friends, when Gabe said his stomach hurt. I asked if he had to go “Caca.” Of course he said No, and I proceeded to make him to at least sit on the toilet. I get him to go, he comes out saying he feels better, and goes back to playing. About 30mins later. He come out and says. “Mommy, I don’t feel soo good, my tummy hurts.” I look at him, and all color has gone from his face....more

I (HEART) Segues

My 4 year old son woke up yesterday morning and told me that he was too sick to go to school.  I knew he was faking but was a little hesitant to call his bluff since the LAST time I told him to suck it up I ended up with vomit all over me.  I’m also pretty sure my kid is going to become a politician when he’s older.  When he sensed my hesitancy for letting him stay home, this conversation occurred: DMo:  Mom, I’m sick. Me:  You don’t look very sick; let me check your forehead....more
