Happy Mothers' Day: Especially to Those in the Trenches!

Happy Mothers' Day: Especially to Those in the Trenches!
Happy Mothers’ Day! This will be brief because I have a napping 22-month-old in his bed and a sleeping 10-week-old strapped to my chest and Lord knows how long those things will last! I just wanted to say Happy Mothers’ Day to all the moms out there, and a special shout out to those currently... Read more »

Sincere Mommy: Now with Two Under Two!

Sincere Mommy: Now with Two Under Two!
I’m back! I guess I was on maternity leave. Is that a thing bloggers can do? At any rate, my last blog came out on Valentine’s Day and four days later at 2:14AM, Jonathan Sigmund came flying out into the world. It’s been a crazy six weeks. Let me recap.   After symptoms of Preeclampsia,... Read more »

I'm Okay, We're Okay.

I'm Okay, We're Okay.
For those of you sweet, wonderful humans out there who were reading my blog every week when it came out, I’m here to assure you that despite my recent lack of postings, I’m fine. The holidays are such a crazy time– as I’m sure they are for everyone– and I simply couldn’t juggle it all... Read more »

Pets as Kids, Pets AND Kids

Pets as Kids, Pets AND Kids
Before we had Harrison, we had cats. Then a dog. Then the baby. Now another baby coming. Our pile of creatures keeps growing and it’s really something of a miracle that they all get along. It makes me wonder, though, had we not added each member of the family in the order that we did,... Read more »

Suddenly He's a Toddler

Suddenly He's a Toddler
People say, “It goes by so fast….” They say, “Just wait...” They say, “They’re only babies for a moment…” And this time, they’re right.   When you bring home your newborn and start trying to get settled into parenthood, people tell you to “cherish every moment.” This makes you inwardly roll your eyes at them...

A Flight, A Funeral, and a Broken Record

A Flight, A Funeral, and a Broken Record
Boy oh boy. Where to even begin on the saga that was last week? Settle in for a crazy tale, though I’ll try to keep it concise. So, Ryan’s sister, Juliet, and her two kids came to visit us on October 3rd, staying until the 7th. We watched Halloween movies, we went out to Bengtson’s... Read more »

Sick Babies Are the WORST

Sick Babies Are the WORST
// And by that title, I don’t mean the babies themselves are the worst. I mean when your baby is sick, it’s your worst day. Especially when they’re too little to be able to tell you what’s wrong. Pardon all these sentence fragments, dear readers, but I haven’t slept in about three days. So, my... Read more »

Being Pregnant at Dragoncon

Being Pregnant at Dragoncon
I didn’t know what to expect this year. We’ve been going to Dragoncon for 11 years now, and I’d never been pregnant at the con before. However, for years and years I’d been making the same joke about a character I created in 2005, Dolly Deathstar. Perhaps I should explain her first. Back in 2005,... Read more »

But How Can I Leave Him?

But How Can I Leave Him?
We’re going on our very first trip without the baby. I’m terrified. No, that’s not fair. I’m not terrified. I’m nervous. I know he’ll be in great hands with my folks. They’re even flying from Florida to Chicago to stay in our house so Harrison has all his own stuff and routines while we’re gone.... Read more »

Wasting His Naps

Wasting His Naps
Ugh. Readers, friends, I have to take a moment to vent to you. I hope you’ll understand. It’s not you, it’s me. It’s irrational, silly-assed me. I’ve wasted another one of my son’s naps. I generally await the time when Harrison falls asleep each day with a mounting list of exciting things I could do.... Read more »
