Emotional Minefields

April 2, 2013

Ever since Joshua was a baby, it’s been clear that he’s a deeply emotional kid, prone to outbursts of the epic variety at the slightest provocation. Or sometimes without being provoked at all. I’m trying to get our days more organized and scheduled since his therapist recommended that as a way to help him out […]

Eternal Flame

March 25, 2013

I feel like I lament this at least 17 times a day, but being a mom is hard work. Like, super hard. Mostly because it’s the only job I know where there’s little in the way of training and a whole lot of making it up as you go along. See also: fake it ’til […]

Well, they’ll take your soul if you let them. Oh yeah, but don’t you let them.

January 28, 2013

The single hardest thing about leaving the work force and staying home, for me at least, has been the significant drop in adult interaction in my life since last June. And by significant drop I mean Dan is sometimes the only adult I see in an entire week, except dropping Joshua off at school. No […]

Are you there, Internet? It’s me.

December 3, 2012

I’m on day 4 of AT&T being a bag of screwballs with our home Internet connection with their official word being that our service should be restored tomorrow night following their “unplanned” outage. Unhappy, thy name is Miranda. And that’s putting it mildly. You’d think that not having Internet access at home would make me…productive? […]

No More Sick Days

October 24, 2012

There is so much snot in my life right now, people. It’s pouring from the heads of both children and then today it started pouring out of mine. Three sickies in this house. Coughing. Sneezing. Snot nosing. Glamorous life I’m living. In the sickness, I’ve stumbled upon what might be the most unfortunate aspect of […]

Things I’m Afraid To Tell You–I (can’t) do it myself

June 13, 2012

There are lots of things that I’m afraid of. Lately, it’s that I’m not stacking up as a mother to Joshua. Or that I’ll never fit into my regular clothes again, never mind anything smaller than that. I’m also afraid of my feet hanging over the edge of the bed, getting poop on my hands […]

That’ll teach me

April 25, 2012

Alright, Monday, I came up in here and bragged about how successful my Saturday alone with both kids was and how we’re settling so nicely into this family of four business and sunshine farts with rainbow sprinkles came flying out of my ass. Despite the fact that we were dealing with the stomach flu from […]

Pompous blowhard

December 28, 2011

So, I had a doctor’s appointment this morning. Taking Joshua with me was actually quite humorous. Like when I took him to the bathroom with me so I could pee in a cup and he kept asking “Where Joshie cup!?!” So there’s that much, at least. But this appointment was scheduled with Dr. With the […]

Pissed off or pissed on? Doesn’t matter. Both suck.

December 10, 2011

This has been a week, y’all. A long, busy, tiring week. Three nights of basketball, one night of gifted class, and one night spent frustrated because Joshua decided to “decorate” the couch cushions with an ink pen while I was making Christmas presents. Add in a healthy dose of anxiety over his picky eating and […]
