Terrible 1’s?

I have heard the phrase “Terrible 2’s will have you going crazy”, but what about the terrible 1’s???? It’s almost as if my son has decided to challenge EVERYTHING we say, do, or have tried to teach him. He has recently began the tantrum thing…. smh… and when we are out in public and he…

Wine Down | Ramblings

The workday felt so long today. It seemed as though everyone needed something or wanted to complain about something. Most would think that the fact that I work from home full-time, I wouldn’t have to deal with some of the idiocies most people deal with in an office environment. That would be a false assumption….

WIMDB for Travel?

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. It was the very first time we traveled with E.K. and his first time on a airplane. E.K. just turned 9 months old, so I was concerned…

JuJuBe is addictive…

I ordered the Jujube BRB in the queen of the nile print when I was 6 months pregnant. 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…

Sleep Training, Night Three

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…

Sleep Training, Night Two

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). We had some success last night. [4:30pm] I fed E.K. dinner and gave him some snacks afterwards. Note: I…

Mommy’s Wine of the Weekend

Happy Saturday! I really love weekends. It’s the two days out of a long week that I can allow myself to indulge in some light sipping and relaxation between nursing a soon to be 6 month old and keeping some level of order in our home. My favorite red wine as of recently is now…

Night weaning and the Husband

E.K. (our son) will be 5 months old on December 29th. As a nursing mom, I have fallen sucker to being his pacifier — since we can’t get him to take a real one. E.K. wakes up on average every 3 to 4 hours throughout the night (on a good night) and requires me to nurse him…
