A Mom Blog Social Network
Yes, you do detect a hint of sarcasm in the above title. It will be somewhat of an adventure but, not one of leisure. The doctor, that saw Nathan just two days ago, has made an appointment for my almost nine year old son to see a Pediatric Orthopedic Specialist tomorrow morning. What I found confusing was that even though no one at our physicians' office had not taken the time to call me with Nathan's lab…Continue

There should be a law against mothers getting sick.
A law of nature. Of our biological composition. So that from the second we commence our 24-hour-a-day vocation of raising children from scary 104-feverish infants through whining-hormonal teenage years, we never experience a single lapse in energy.
Because this is what happens when Mommy actually gets sick and may lounge around on the living room lounge all day:
She neglects to inspect the bathroom for…Continue

Poor E. We found out this week that he's officially outnumbered 3 to 1. My premonition from March came true: this little kicking babe is a girl. He said he won't be worried unless the NEXT one is a girl, too. (HAHAHA, the next one. He must mean in about 10…

Nothing can break a mama’s heart like a sick baby.
Nothing can make a mama feel more helpless than holding a quivering, crying, hot baby and not being able to make it all better.
Little Eli spent the majority of Sunday with a 102+ fever. He was miserable. He wouldn’t eat, wouldn’t drink, wouldn’t play. He just curled up in my arms and whimpered.
So, we nestled into our favorite snuggle spot on the couch and pulled Grammy’s quilt up to our chins. We watched his favorite…Continue

It can be distressing for parents to see their children not feel well and have frequent motion sickness.Children from 5years to 12years are more susceptible to motion sickness.
What is Motion Sickness
Motion sickness is caused by a disturbance of the inner ear where there is a conflict between the vestibular inputs and visual inputs.These conflicting messages are sent to the brain which results in imbalance and thus leads to motion…

** Your cabin fever's reached Code Red when you're jealous of the squirrels outside breathing in all that fresh, freezing cold air.
** Trying to work a crossword puzzle when you're tired just makes you feel stupid. And tired.
** I've washed my hands so many times over the past few days that I may no longer have fingerprints.

All I ever heard, prior to having children, was that pregnancy was miraculous/beautiful/amazing. Then I got pregnant and was forced to discover, all on my own, that it was all a cruel trick–an obvious line of bullshit that proved, once again, that misery loves company. I’m going to lay it all out for you. This is the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the…Continue

As my kids have gotten older, road trips have definitely become much easier (minus, of course, the occasional motion sickness puke). Thank God, I no longer have to change shitty diapers in the backseat or figure out how to keep bottles from going bad. Finally, at long last, the kids can feed themselves and keep their eyes out for the nearest bathroom exit. However, with…Continue

If I told you how shiteous our trip down to Florida was for spring break, I honestly don’t think you’d believe me. We totally gave the Griswolds a run for their money and then some. Cause let me just tell ya, when it rains in the Nucking Futs Family, it friggin’ monsoons, people.
It started out with my husband dumping over half his…Continue
The Battle of the Sore throat
This is the first time our Little One baby is sick. In fact Andy and I are battling some really bad sore throats! I have it worse out of them all. Being the mom taking care of Daddy and baby while sick can make mom sickest of all! With coughing, runny nose, and a cup of hot tea, honey, and lemon I get through the day with baby. Breastfeeding is so hard I have to admit. Perhaps its a mindset too, but my body just does not…Continue

Other houses on our street have lovely wreaths adorning their front doors, some even twinkling with fairy lights representing thousands of happy yuletide fireflies. On our front door this week, there has been daubed a big black cross, representing that this is a plague house - woe betide anyone who dare enter.
Yes dear reader, this week we have all (me, the big hairy man, and little CK) had some kind of hideous vomity evil residing in our systems, making us feel like yesterdays jam,…

Ya know what I've got right here for that crazy bitch Mother Nature? A big fat middle finger pointed smack dab at her face. Why, you ask? Cause I am absolutely convinced that she is conspiring with the universe to take me down for the count. The proof lies in the fact that every frickin' time there's some wacky-ass storm headed toward my house, my husband is out of…Continue

Summer is in full swing and it's time to rock the boat! Boaters love this time of year. Daylight hours are longer, there's always a reason to get friends together and head out on your boat for a day of fun and
enjoyment. Don't forget the sunscreen, some good food, your fishing gear
and the music that makes you think of sun and fun. Lots of people like
to drop anchor and meet up with other boaters to swim,…
