Real men change diapers

We believe in Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, fairies and that all toys are gender-neutral.  When my first daughter was born and she showed interest in trains, I purchased the entire Thomas the train collection.  When my son showed interest in cross-dressing, baby dolls and all things pink, I didn’t think twice about letting him […]

Back to School with Allermates

Once upon a time there was a girl who lived in a bubble.  The girl then grew up and married an accountant.  She later gave birth to three children.  Two of those children having lactose and gluten allergies from the moment they were born. I have done my part in teaching my children that they cannot […]

How to book a quiet flight

Prepare to be amazed! Do you want to know how NOT to book a flight and be near a screaming child? WELL! Here’s a tip for you! Book a charter! Fly Private! Other than that, have a seat and shut the hell up. On my way to San Jose, CA I was on a 5 hour […]

Mind your manners

Okay, what the hell goes on in the park?  Like many other parents I detest taking my children to the park.  First and foremost, I’m a helicopter mom. I am not ashamed.  Secondly, I’m not a germaphobe but how often do you see someone giving the monkey bars a good rub down? I mean.  There HAS […]

Drivers wanted

I have reached a stage of motherhood that I was never warned about.  On most days I feel more like a personal assistant and chauffeur than anything else.  Long gone are the days of enjoying my children because now they have something to do every day of the week and most of the time on […]

iPad finds

I know this doesn’t just happen to me.  I give my kids the iPad so that they can ignore me while I squeeze in some QT with Facebook  and a few days later when I’m looking through my pictures I find countless selfies, many with my son’s head on a dress as well as many […]

And the award goes to,

The end of the school year is approaching (or has approached already for some) and with that comes awards season.  It isn’t like it was when I was a kid where awards were based on academics, now everyone in the classroom gets an award of some sort.  I think it’s a cute idea for primary […]

Furry Mommy vs Human Mommy

“Baron insists on using a diaper and won’t pee on the wee wee pad.  Ridiculous!”, yeah, that’s how I’m going to start commenting the next time someone starts talking about their furry baby when I’m talking about my child.  My HUMAN child, perhaps furry but still, I can’t lock in him a cage with kibbles […]

Everything is better in Marchesa…

I received a notecard from my daughter’s plastic surgeon today.  No, I have not gotten her boobs (yet) but she did have a little mishap last year where she was seen by a plastic surgeon who to this day, has not forgotten her. Last year I was getting my girls ready for a communion lunch […]
