Status Update

I’m not going to lie; life with four small kids can be hard. When people find out how many children I have and their ages the first question is always, “Do you have any help?” Because I get this question so often, almost daily in fact, I have begun to [...]

No Pets Allowed!

I remember back when a friend of mine gave her cat away shortly after her second child was born.  At the time, I remember thinking, “How could she do that? Just give her cat away?”  She said that it was because with two children she could no longer give the [...]

Thank You Drive-Thru

I grew up in southern California. Down there, so it seems, there isn’t a spot of land that isn’t built on or around. Strip malls run supreme and drive-thrus aren’t hard to come by. Deciding which one to go to, however, is a little more difficult. Shortly after college, I [...]

Real Push Gift

Tick Tock

I don’t know if it is the anxiety of labor and delivery or just the excitement to meet her, but I am feeling a little let down that I am still pregnant today. I went in to see my OB yesterday and he stripped my membranes (Google it if you [...]

35 and Tacky

I have had many a sleepless night this past week. I have had a lot on my mind and I am a thinker. When my brain gets going I often have a hard time shutting it down. I plot, plan, and organize. It is dangerous for me to get over-stimulated [...]

Place Your Bets

I am three weeks until my due date and Friday I went into see my doctor for my now weekly OB check-up. He asked me when this baby was coming. I laughed and said, “I don’t know Doc. You tell me”. In the past week, I’ve progressed from 0 to [...]
