It has been a interesting day. I sold a handbag of mine on Poshmark and went to the USPS to drop it off and get a receipt this morning. While in line, there was a young woman in front of me who was there with her two (2) sons. Her sons appeared to be approx.… Continue reading Is it Ever O.K. to Yell at a Stranger’s Child?
In an effort to be more budget focused, I've been trying my hand at meal planning. I found a recipe on Pinterest that looked easy, healthy, and yummy so I figured I'd give it a try... The recipe called for italian sausage, bell peppers, onions, and a mix of vegetables. On a scale of 1… Continue reading What’s for Dinner tonight?
What's in my diaper bag for travel via airplane? The husband, E.K., and I took a trip to Chicago for a family function a week or so ago.

... E.K. has sleep trained us (his parents)!!!! This little human has managed to train us to go into his room 2 to 4 times throughout the night and pat him on his back until he falls back to sleep.

What is sleep? Who needs sleep? Clearly, I don't need sleep. - Exhausted Mom E.K. said "phuck your sleep training!" in baby talk. I'm convinced that's what he is screaming at us when we let him sit in his crib screaming. How is it that someone so cute and lovable can turn into a raging… Continue reading Sleep Training, Night Four

It was my first jujube purchase and I had already purchased a skip hop bag but wanted a backpack style diaper bag that was a bit more versatile. After doing some major research, I opted to go… Continue reading JuJuBe is addictive…
Whelp, so much for thinking it would be as simple as allowing E.K. to scream his heart out for one night and he'd be magically sleep trained, lol. [6:00pm] - E.K. was beyond exhausted. After dealing with is crankiness for a good 2+ hours, I gave in to bathing him and giving him his cereal… Continue reading Sleep Training, Night Three
Good Morning! And it really is a good morning for the most part (I'm not going to include the fact that my job totally phucked up my W4 allowances and now I'm waiting on a explanation).

E.K. is 8.5 months old. He is a feisty but loving 8.5 month old who wants what he wants when he wants it. Lately, that want has been me coddling him to sleep each night in my arms and then transitioning him to his crib where he will typically sleep any where from 1 to… Continue reading Sleep Training, Night One
