My house smells like a urinal

Jul 25, 2014 by

Hallelujah ladies my son is potty trained! After two and a half years he is actually out of diapers and I am no longer stuck wiping “Man” sized poops from his ass. We decided to go with the plan that was described here and for us it worked wonders. Do not get me wrong it was an intense day and we did have a few accidents here or there but overall my son is pooping and peeing in the potty.

The first few days after my son got it I was walking on cloud nine. I literally felt proud and could understand why people take pictures of their kids crap and posted it on Facebook  I didn’t do that as I remember almost throwing up in my mouth when people did but I could understand why.

A Unified Front

MOOOMMMMM can I have some ice cream?” whines my two and a half-year old one bright early morning.

“No Max you cannot have ice cream at 8 am…”

This is the moment you see my toddler take three steps to the right and plant his big blue eyes in front of my husband.

DAAAAADDDD can I have some ice cream?”

While this strategy is not smart due to lack of distance, it is a defining moment in our house.

The moment your child tries to divide and conquer their parents.

The look so damn innocent right? DO not be fooled, LOL

They look so damn innocent right? DO not be fooled, LOL

My two and a half years old is beginning to understand the idea that he can hedge his bets that we may not agree on something. He does not understand that this could bring on deep philosophical debates between adults.

What to do next in my career?

Jul 11, 2014 by

As you know I have been working in a new job which I accepted while I was 11 weeks pregnant. It has been tough to be the newbie and pregnant with a toddler, and then having a newborn but in the end it has been totally worth it. Lately though I have been sitting back and really thinking about my career.

I know thinking is a hard commodity to come by these days between getting up for night feedings, working a new job, and adjusting to being the primary breadwinner but I’ve found myself pondering what’s next for me in my career?

I work in a corporate environment as a technical sales person, basically I sell chemicals, reagents, and instruments for scientists to use during research and development. I get to use my brain and learn new things every day. So while I am happy with my current career I have not figured out what I want to do to advance my career path?

Mommy Mush Brain

Jun 27, 2014 by

Before kids I was the most organized, put together, type A person you could meet. I was the organizer of social calenders, always early on work projects and never missed a deadline.

Fast forward to today.


I have dubbed this condition “Mommy Mush Brain

I have literally forgotten a simple thought two seconds after having it. I have done the classic go to get something from another room and forget what said thing is when I get there.

I have forgotten weekend plans, then see the reminder pop up on my phone an hour before and scramble to get the kids, and a gift for the party.

I have forgotten to tuck my boob back into my bra…as any normal person knows flashing is unacceptable. I would like to apologize to my neighbors.
