Things You’re Not Supposed to Talk About

Who would have thought there are rules to blogging?  Yes, in fact there are.  One of the many don’ts of blogging is that you are never supposed to talk about why you haven’t been blogging.  Apparently it’s in poor taste.  Don’t ask me why.  I don’t make the rules.  But I do follow the rules…usually. So…I won’t talk about why […]

When Life Throws You a Spare – Bowl with It!

On New Year’s Eve I went with my husband and our baby to the local bowling alley.  As I sat there, waiting for my turn it occurred to me that some of my most embarrassing moments happened at a bowling alley.

If Baby Could Talk – Pretty Kitty

Baby was on the floor rolling around from one end to the other.  He stopped when he saw Gwennie walking by.  With a wide smile and overwhelming happiness in his eyes he squealed with joy.  “Pretty Kitty!  Pretty, pretty kitty!” Gwennie, annoyed as usual, sneered at him as she marched by.  “Yes little thing; that’s right.  I’m pretty.  You’re very […]

A Random Conversation With My Husband.

It was an all too familiar moment.  I came home from grocery shopping; unloaded the baby and the groceries from the car and as I was putting everything away, I realized I forgot a key ingredient for that night’s dinner.  So, I called my husband. “Hey babe,” he answered. “Hey.  Watchya doing?” “Um…..I’m at work so I’m…um…working.” “You’re working? At […]

If Baby Could Talk – Changing Table Conversations

“Good morning baby,” I said with a big smile.  “Is that my happy boy?  Are you my happy boy?”  Baby was lying on his stomach, pushing himself up with his arms and smiling wide.  Every time I addressed him he giggled.  I lifted him out of the crib and gave him a big, squeaky kiss on his cheek before setting […]

If Baby Could Talk – A Very Scary Dream

“Momma!  Momma!” I cried. “Bad dream! Bad, bad dream!” Momma cam quickly into my room. “What is it baby?”  She lifted me out of my crib and cradled me in her arms, kissing away my tears.  “What happened?” “Scary,” I said, swallowing a large amount of drool. “What was scary?” Momma placed me onto the changing table and began removing […]

If Baby Could Talk – Things I Put In My Mouth

Do you see my new toy?  It has all kinds of things I can put in my mouth. Do you see the red and purple cups in front? They come out. Guess where they go.  They go in my mouth and then I throw them on the floor. Do you see the bumblebee?  It goes in my mouth.  It doesn’t […]

Dear Baby, On This Day In History…..

Daddy and I went to a clinic to find out if you were a boy or a girl.  The technician had a very difficult time trying to answer that question for us because you insisted on sitting in my womb, with your little legs crossed.  She poked and prodded at my tummy trying to get you to move but you […]
