Today I am 38 weeks and 2 days, and I had an exam scheduled with my dr. to see if it would be at all possible to induce before he takes off on his Alaskan ice fishing vacation on the 4th. By this point, I was really hoping to have already had to go in for labor anyhow, but things have been holding out in the "pretty damn miserable" stage for days now. I have been having some pretty intense contractions/braxton hicks for the last couple of days, so I was really hoping to hear some good news…Continue

I was going to title this "In Which I Fail At Parenting," but since all three of my children are accounted for and asleep without the use of a sledgehammer or narcotics, I think I'm still on the right track there.
However, I think we can definitely say I am a failure as a housewife, because the mess has taken over and fully disabled me. I have been resorted to mumbling under my breath about how I hate my house and shrieking in disgust every…Continue
Oh Haih... this is just me complaining again. I tend to use blog format to vent more than anything else, but at least it keeps me from yelling at people on the street or in the grocery store. Am I right?
Why, oh WHY do people assume that you being pregnant and them being curious gives them every right to stick their nose all up in your belly? I mean, it's bad enough when you are just regular pregnant with either no other children or one that is "acceptably" older. People…Continue
One year ago, today, our little viking was born! It's hard to believe he's a year old already! I'm not sure if being pregnant through most of this time has made it seem to pass faster than usual, or if time is just speeding up on me anyway. Either way, the last year seems to have flown by, and I feel like somehow I missed out on Mr. C being a baby. Of course, in a lot of ways, he is still very much a baby. He still has all of that beautiful baby chub going on. But he is also walking…Continue
I asked DH the other day how long should one's midlife crisis last?
"I guess it goes until you start your late-in-life crisis," he replied.
"Well, I'm fucked."
I had a weird thought last night as I was playing my crazy Facebook timesuck games. My avatars on these games tend to resemble my own features. Having avatars often means you can select exactly how you want others to see you, or act out your wild fantasies of having…Continue
NB has been through her first couple days of school now and we are all struggling to adjust. The getting up early and early bed times and all is just the beginning.
The first day there was some sort of mix-up with her lunch. She didn't end up bringing her lunch box to the lunch room and ate school lunch instead. Then she ate her lunch at snack time. I had a really hard time trying to figure out from NB what had happened to cause the mix-up as she just wasn't very clear and…Continue
I didn’t think it was possible, but this summer vacation has managed to out-Lego our spring break trip to Legoland. And I’m not just talking about all the hours of free time and playdates spent building with Lego bricks. It seems like everywhere we’ve turned this summer, there’s been some Lego-themed attraction.
The Boy’s school offered a…
A few days ago, Tim and I were watching Jake Johannsen "I Love You" on netflix and I laughed so hard I nearly sent myself into labor. At one point he was talking about how his one month old daughter managed to poop in her own hair while fully dressed, and even just trying to tell you about it via blog makes me crack up all over again. Then he said something about how having a two year old boy is like having a miniature viking running around your house getting into…Continue
