Me, Scared? No Way.

My husband, who is the perfect guy for me and has a twisted sense of humor that totally works with mine, sent me this slideshow of 19 hilarious signs you’re definitely a parent. I know this should make me anxious or something, but it just makes me giggle.  I already spend hours looking for my car … Continue reading

Parenting Advice – Pretty Worthless

It’s funny, Baby is still a little English cucumber in my womb, kicking me and giving me heartburn, and already people want to tell me how to raise the little bub. Dude, shut up.  I haven’t even met my little nugget yet, and I really don’t care what you have to say about my decision … Continue reading

Pinterest Recipe Review: Cinnamon Bun Pecan Pie

I found this recipe through Pinterest – it’s a Cinnamon Bun Pecan Pie.  Whoot!  Sounds awesomesauce.  I had a lunch with some of my girlfriends coming up, and this sounded like a great dessert to bring along. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly. Honestly, I have absolutely never understood people who find a recipe … Continue reading

Flats and Handwashing Challenge

Flats.  I have no flats in my fluff stash, but I will probably have to at some point.  Next year, when Baby is about 8 months old, Teddy and I will be traveling to India to visit family.  As of right now, I am planning to cloth diaper the entire trip.  The very VERY rough … Continue reading

People are Stupid

I haven’t gotten too many stupid questions or comments yet.  A few “wow you’re getting big!” comments, which I have no idea how to respond to, besides “thanks, I’m gonna go cry now, asshat.”  Seriously, I’m 25 weeks pregnant.  TWENTY FIVE.  Should I look like freakin Kate Moss? As usual, the place to turn is … Continue reading

Evil Parents Are the Best Parents

I don’t mean evil as in Joan Crawford.  Jeez.  I’m not a monster. I mean evil like snarky and find the humor is situations so that you don’t go crazy. Reasons My Son Is Crying is a Tumblr that features pictures of a boy crying and dad’s very matter-of-fact explanation for the tears.  Reasons like: … Continue reading

Pregnancy Fears: Is there *NOTHING* I Can Eat?

I love cheese.  Let me scream that from the mountaintop: I LOVE CHEESE. There are few cheeses I don’t love.  Stinky cheese?  Love.  Hard cheese? Love.  Cheese with stuff in it, like fruit or nuts or herbs?  Love.  Gooey soft cheese?  Love love love. So Listeria is a big PITA for me, cause it’s the … Continue reading

Pregger Lady Recommendation: Pregnant Chicken

If you’re pregnant, I think one of the best resources I’ve found is the email updates from Pregnant Chicken.  I get an email every week that gives me some info about what’s going on with my pregnancy and the belly monster.  On a scale from useless to CDC-update, I’d say it’s pretty-informative-super-funny.  So, when I … Continue reading

First Cloth Diaper Group Meeting & an Evaluation of my Newborn Stash

Last week, I attended the Lehigh Valley Diaper Circle, which I found through Meetup.  It was hosted by the woman who owns Ju-Ju Monkey, and there were maybe 10 or so mommies and mommies-to-be there with their babies. I had a lot of fun and got to meet some nice women.  Since I don’t know … Continue reading
