Ann Coulter and Why You Should Quote Fairly!

Filed Under: Life

I'm pissed. I never thought that I would be writing in defense of Ann Coulter. Actually, I'm not so much defending Ann Coulter as I am bitching about only half of a story being told. Coulter's words have been taken out of context and twisted and that pisses me off. When that happens ...

Organic Baby Food, Puke and Politics

Filed Under: Food and Drink, Life, Recipes

I got a Gerber coupon flyer in the mail yesterday. You know the ones that are addressed to "Current Occupant"? It made me feel special. Anyway, on the back is a picture of an ADORABLE asexual baby smiling over a bowl of fruit with the tag line - Taste the Organic Side of Gerber. To ...

Not Father of the Year Material

Filed Under: Life

Guess who does NOT qualify for Father of the Year. Any ideas? Drum roll please...MY DAD! That's right folks, he's fucked up again. You have to understand that this man is an undiagnosed paranoid delusional person. Undiagnosed since the couple of times that he's been (court ordered) to see a counselor, Dad ...

Boobs and What I Think About Them

Filed Under: Life

I just got my new issue of Cookie in the mail. On the cover is a glowing thirty-something mom in a micro-mini dress with a huge rock on her hand, holding an adorable baby boy. To complete the picture perfect mom there is a cute as a button blond little girl holding onto ...

An Then I Shut the Door and Left Her Cry

Filed Under: Life

What is wrong with this picture? Hmm... could it be the pit bull in the crib? (No child was harmed in the taking of this picture) We have a jam-packed day planned, let me tell ya. I put Cara down for a nap about thirty minutes ago. I was outside talking to my mom and noticed that ...

The Good, the Bad, and the Jury’s Still Out

Filed Under: Book Related, Life

Hollyn's friend, Jennifer, kindly mailed me her copy of The No-Cry Sleep Solution book. She enclosed a handwritten note (great penmanship, by the way!) saying, "Good Luck! Chapter 4 is the one to read if you want the quick read". I thumbed through the first three chapters. They contained basic safety information about your child's sleep ...

Liquid Love

Filed Under: Food and Drink

Last night, I procured something I like to call "liquid love". This 92 proof bottle of warm fuzziness is probably some of the best rum I've ever had the pleasure to sample; I was in a sorority in college...I've drank a lot of rum. You know, sometimes mamma's gotta let it all hang out. Man, this scheduled ...

Guilt and Sorrow

Filed Under: Life

I am so tired of writing about Cara and whether or not she sleeps. Granted, that's about the only thing that I think about these days. So I'm sure that's why Cara's sleep patterns are the only thing I can find to write. Well, last night was the first night that I had any type of ...

Light At the End of the Tunnel

Filed Under: Life

There appears to be a proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. Cara went down last night at 7 pm and ended up not going back to sleep until 8:28 pm. She slept all the way until 2:30 this morning at which point I went in there and boobed her and put her back to ...

Goodnight You Moonlight Ladies

Filed Under: Life

Cara went to sleep last night at 7:15 pm. She promptly woke up at 7:30 pm and we implemented our plan once she woke. She cried and fussed and flipped us the baby finger until 8:32 pm. Tucker and I took turns going in and reassuring her. The first "wait" was three minutes. The second was ...

Dr. Ferber, Here We Come!

Filed Under: Book Related, Life

It begins tonight. I've read the vast majority of the book and I have to say that it's not nearly the scary, inhumane method that I had been led to believe that it was. It's behavioral psychology. Actual researched science. So, I decided to give it a chance. In reading the book, one major thing became evident. We ...

Adding Insult to Injury

Filed Under: Life

Benadryl does not improve infant sleep. Click on the above text to read the abstract. Just let me tell you, that did NOT make my morning. Cara has slept about 12 hours total in the past two days. I will try just about anything at this point. She was asleep and in her crib last night by ...
