Oh (Sick) Baby

Oh man, remember my Passover Interrupted post, which I typed while carrying/wearing a sick and disconsolate baby around the house, trying anything and everything to appease her?

I once read that colds can have a ten-day lifespan, so I'm optimistically thinking that mine is about to see its… Continue reading When you’re sick AND you’re a mom

A Day of Cloudy Heads and 3-Ingredient Fluff Slime

Scroll down for sliminess, because I first need to exhale. Today was a day! Just one of those days where I felt like my head was clouded and I found everything annoying -- like stomach tightening, blood boiling annoying. I'm usually an upbeat, fast-paced and positive person, so my tolerance for my own orneriness is… Continue reading A Day of Cloudy Heads and 3-Ingredient Fluff Slime


An inaugural call to poison controlĀ 

I made it through exactly five years of parenting without one call to poison control. Bare in mind that my half decade of abstinence has no correlation to the amount of times my children have been in contact with potentially perilous substances -- I guess I just always intervened quickly enough and generally hate making… Continue reading An inaugural call to poison controlĀ

A Foreboding Forecast and Weather App Stalking

I'm enduring a week of weather stalking and anxiety. I downloaded six new weather apps on my phone, and I'm checking forcasts more often than I'd care to admit. Why? Well, with K having just turned 1 and R about to turn 5, I planned a larger-than-life OUTDOOR Carnival. You know, a petting zoo with… Continue reading A Foreboding Forecast and Weather App Stalking

Explosive Heart Art: Fizzy PaintingĀ 

Yesterday was Sunday, the day of 'murca's venerated Super Bowl. We partook in the pageantry by attending a party at a dear friend's house, where we all ate lots of yummies and I glanced up at the enormous television for about 2 whole minutes. Prior to the gathering, we had a quiet Sunday with nothing… Continue reading Explosive Heart Art: Fizzy PaintingĀ
