The Blog University: 1-Minute Recap

The Blog University: 1-Minute Recap


Let Me Start By Saying, that it was so nice to leave My Life and Kids & Binkies and Briefcases behind, putting Suburban Snapshots in the rearview mirror (You Know it Happens at Your House Too).  I gathered the Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva, while wearing Mommy Shorts, and sporting Baby Sideburns; someone even asked me if I would contribute to the Underachiever’s Guide to Being a Domestic Goddess, and she quickly became one of the People I want to Punch in the Throat.  We shared Bad Parenting Moments, how Funny is Family, talked about being a Ninja Mom, an Honest Mom, and Mom of the Year (lies!), and were like: Motherhood, WTF?  I’m Still Learning how to get Random Handprints off of the wall and what to do when Naps Happen!  We hung out in Kelley’s Break Room for some HouseTalkN, sharing Toulouse & Tonic and chatting about Our Small Moments at conference.  Rebecca, from FrugalistaBlog, cracked open The Fordeville Diaries (about Four Plus an Angel), read about the Hollow Tree Ventures and talked smack about Paige Kellerman.  In the end, I learned about 649.133: Girls, the Care and Maintenance Of, and joined the Sisterhood of Sensible Moms.

Thank you for an amazing conference, with such wickedly talented faculty!  Zoloft is sponsoring my full-length conference recap, which should be publishing shortly...

Why "Mommy Juice" Scares the Hell Out of Me

I cried in reaction to Meg Ryan's character's helplessness [recklessness as a mother], and then her empowerment through sobriety; I cried about the love the film portrayed, and the relationship that was forever altered. I had yet to taste my first drink.   Read more >

How Do Germophobes Potty Train Their Children?

Seriously, this question flitted through my mind this morning as I was enjoying my shower. We’re in our third week of potty training, and my two-year-old son showed up at the shower curtain, which is strange only because he had to pry his eyes away from Super Why! to come upstairs. Don’t judge, I NEED those seven minutes. My cherished seven minutes of “me” time turned into a poo-tastrophy of epic proportions this morning, and I wondered how the hell germophobes ever survive potty training their children.   Read more >

10 Signs You're Ready to Stop Breastfeeding

I recently sailed past the 19 month mark of breastfeeding Declan, and did so with a sigh. I'm grateful for being able to nurse for so long, but the truth is that I'm ready to be done any time now. I started out with a six month goal, which turned to one year once I exceeded my initial length. At the one year mark, I assumed (especially being pregnant twice) that Declan would just self-wean... and soon. Not the case. Pregnancy hormones didn't put him off...   Read more >
