Well, I may have COMPLETELY lost my mind because lately I've been dreaming about babies and puppies. And I might need an intervention. Click over to my blog to see why: "…Continue

Even though I've known for a while that it needed to be done, I know it's finally time to bite the bullet and have the dreaded sex talk with the shorties. I may need you to hold me afterwards. Click over to my blog to see what's prompted…Continue

When you’re pregnant with your first child everything is exciting. You’re making lists of baby names, finishing up the nursery so it’s ready for baby’s arrival and buying all kinds of unnecessary must-have things.
A few hours after giving birth you have a little panic attack because you’re not sure if you brought the right outfit for baby to come home in.
Pretty soon you get the hang of this mom thing but realize you need a trailer hitched to the back of your car to…Continue

Taking care of your child’s teeth is very important and many parents don’t realize that you should begin taking care of them before they come in. When my son was an infant and we were at the doctor’s office for a well check, his doctor informed us that we should begin wiping my son’s gums with a wash cloth…Continue

I’ve written a few times about the progress I’ve made in my journey to go green. While I certainly have a long way to go, I’m not the big-haired, wasteful consumer that I used to be. And since we all struggle in our journey to do better and be better, I’m continuing my weekly entry of “favorites” that help me day to day.
Honestly, I have never even considered buying a trampoline for my kids. OK, maybe I did. But only for about 5 seconds. I have heard…Continue

I keep hearing how great sleep is. Some how though people seem to forget that I've been a mom for 15 years and out of those 15 years I think I've accumulated enough sleep to equal a quarter of that. Finding sleep with babies is an eluded mecca that I can only hope to one day find. I…Continue
Breastfeeding was very important to me and even though I didn’t do a bunch of research when I was pregnant with my first child, I knew that many professionals try to discourage moms from introducing artificial nipples or pacifiers to your breastfed baby for a minimum of 6 to 8 weeks to avoid nipple confusion.…Continue

It's been a four weeks since I've blogged last. Ladybug is talking like crazy! Just a few weeks ago I was transferring videos from my phone to cd's so we have them forever and I couldn't believe some of the early videos of Ladybug talking. In June/July she was just saying "YES" and "OWL" and things like that. I love the…Continue

I was taking to another mom, and she said, watching her baby grow and learn is the greatest thing she's ever done. I TOTALLY AGREE... And I've done some cool stuff (bartender on a cruise ship, I was a flight attendant, extensive traveling) But this is by far, the greatest…

When I found out I was pregnant with Conor I was single, young, and pretty stupid. When I told the ex-boyfriend the situation he quickly skipped town around the time I was 6 weeks along. I never heard from him again. I had to grow up and get my shit together fast, but in all honesty it wasn't that hard. As soon as I realized I was pregnant, I was attached to the little one growing inside me. I had never felt more in love with anything or anyone in my life before. When he first…Continue

I was recently visiting a friend who was cleaning out her kitchen cupboards. It’s a bit too early for “spring cleaning” here in the Midwest, but she likes to thoroughly clean right after the holidays. She says it’s a “New Year” kind of thing – out with the old and in with the new.
As I was sitting there, chatting away and drinking my tea, I noticed that my nose started to itch. Actually, it started to burn a little bit and my eyes were tearing up. I asked her if she’d gotten any…Continue

Filipino expats in Thailand are quite numerous. This large population coupled with the gregarious nature of Filipinos, news may it be important or trivial, will surely spread like wild fire. The experiences described here, though, should not be construed as general of all immigration officers. These are specific experiences of particular people I know. I am writing these to serve as guidelines and spare us from any unpleasant encounters with Thai immigration. Of the four countries that…Continue

This post was originally published here at The Sweet Midlife with Lynne and Leslie, the blog that my twin sister Leslie and I write. We were both married the year we turned 39, and I am the mom of a baby now at 41. We write about life in general from our somewhat interesting viewpoints. Please check us out!
