I'm Just Gonna Ride it Out

You know those crazy folks who, despite knowing well in advance that some sort of natural disaster is about to completely LEVEL their home, insist upon staying put rather than getting the heck out of dodge? They’re the ones who you overhear telling news reporters “I’m just gonna batten down the hatches and ride it out,” while everyone else is packing up their precious belongings and running for the hills, screaming....more

Always Grateful for the Sound

It was cold in Ottawa yesterday. The weather channel was warning of a severe snow storm that didn't actually materialize but it was still very windy with a combination of snow and rain for much of the day. Mac and I stayed indoors and had a great day....more

The Nightmare that is Teething

Emily has an official tooth. It is tiny, but it is through the gum and oh, so very sharp. It has taken forever. Now, the gum on the other side is swollen and white so she will have another chomper shortly. She refuses to let me see it and screams when I clean it and her gums.

It's Teething. Trust Me.

My husband laughs at me.  My babies are teething.  That's no laughing matter, of course, as anyone who has dealt with a teething baby can tell you.  He laughs at me because, in my opinion, my babies are always teething.  My babies have been teething since day one, or at least since month three.  As soon as the experts gave me a ready-made, go-to excuse for their seemingly uncalled for tears and distress, I took it and ran.Crying because they don't want to eat?   Teething.  Crying because they're overtired?  Teething.  Crying bec...more

Hyland’s teething tablet recall – some facts and clarifications

This week the FDA enforced a recall of Hyland’s homeopathic teething tablets, a product which has been manufactured and used by parents for over 85 years in the USA. I’ve observed this situation argument grow arms and legs and also watched the misinformation grow at the same rate.  The first link I noticed came from another mommy blog site, and several mom sites have posted this because they’re worried of course.  The first post said that there was a botulism scare, since the Chammomilla (chamomile) present in the tablets had been infected with botulism – just li...more
