Staying in the (Poop) Loop

I could probably tell you the last time four different people pooped. I could also tell you the approximate size, consistency, color and the amount of toilet paper required for clean up of said bowel movements. I don’t share this as a point of pride, but rather as an insight into the vast (and often […]

Potty Training My First vs. Third Child: the Bad and the Ugly

When we successfully used “boot camp” to potty train my daughter at just over 2 1/2 years old, I was pretty sure I was the official Potty Expert. It wasn’t like she was 17 months or anything, but waiting until she was ready got the job done in just three days! I even wrote a […]

To make matters worse, cold weather means 1000% more indoor time. In my house this usually means no one changes out of pajamas […]

Why Not Say ‘YES’!

I found myself saying ‘no’ a lot; like a whole lot. Why not say YES? If we are being truthful, I downloaded a counter app on my phone and tallied the number of times I said no in a day for a week. The number was startling and I knew I had to make a […]

Driving Me Crazy: The Many Jobs of a Mom Behind the Wheel

I was warned about how much driving I would do as a stay-at-home mom. I see the vans with the Mom Taxi bumper sticker or the little army of stick people and I raise my fist in a somber salute as I pass them in the carpool line. I knew that “chauffeur” was in the […]
