99 red balloons (OK, 2. Just 2 balloons)

About a month ago, I was out running errands with my sister preparing for my son’s 2nd Birthday party. Unsuspecting of what was to come, I walk into Party City with two balloons I had purchased at the Target Dollar Spot and present them to the employee to be filled with helium. What ensued was […]

Using Candy as Incentive for Your Kid to Listen to You

I remember a few years ago, hearing a lady in a checkout line tell her kid “if you stop crying, I’ll get you a cookie.” Then thinking to myself, how I would never do that with my future children. Fast forward to today where I have two kids that are 3 and under and now […]

Oh, no!

If my kid could trademark a phrase, it would be “oh, no!”  It’s his “you got it, dude,” his “book ‘em, Danno,” his “did I do that?” I understand he got it from somewhere, that he must have heard me say it and repeated it from there, but it has become a cycle that feeds […]

That Unwanted Opinion We All Have Received

“You know what would help your kid?” Annnnnd no.  Let me stop you right there.  Unless you’re a pediatrician, psychologist or one of my close friends, don’t even try it.  Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying I don’t want help with issues with my kids. But here’s the difference.  Let me ask you […]

Bidding adieu to the boobie milk

On my birthday this past year, I was ready to blow out 28 candles and was wishing my family would take my second pregnancy as good news after a rather scary delivery with my first.  What I should have wished for was a minivan or, the best use of my wish, to be a Holstein […]

Temper Tantrums: Why My 3yo Scares the Hell Out of Me

What a beautiful day it is!  You think, “Maybe I should pack up a picnic, put my daughter’s bike in the back of the truck and bring her to the park for a day filled with fun!”  I see your very optimistic. But don’t forget, you have a 3yo whose trigger for going off could […]

What the thrush

Thrush.  “You mean Canada’s national treasure?,” some might say.  No. That’s Rush. “Oh. I know what you’re talking about.  With the hipsh ,” Sean Connery might say.  Nuh-uh. That’s thrust. Probably a major part of how you got this little one who could harbor such a nasty little bugger, but I digress. Thrush, oral candidiasis […]

On one of my many, MANY trips to Target, my daughter lets me know that she has to pee.  So I lead her to the bathroom. We enter the 4 stall bathroom.  Two are occupied, one is out of order and the other one should be quarantined and blocked off by police tape.  I explain […]

The importance of a day off

As I sit here on my living room sofa allowing Little Baby Bum to continue its reign of terror in my home, I am brimming with excitement. For approximately 1 and a half hours, 90 minutes, 5400 seconds, I will be able to enjoy time outside of the house without children. Sing it to the […]

My Kid’s Favorite Characters and My Thoughts

Doc McStuffins – Thanks for teaching my kids to bust up their toys and try and “fix” them.  I now have a teddy bear that my kid ripped open, pulled stuffing out and then mushed her glue stick all over it to close it back up.  Looks like the Doc doesn’t really know her stuff. […]
