Hmmmm

Not too much to write about at the moment. Normally, I’m bubbling over with topics, but lately, not so much. Anyone have any questions? Any ideas? Feel free to comment or send me an e-mail with topics – I could obviously use some inspiration. Status updates… Marc is doing well, not liking his job lately, …

I love summer

We had the loveliest weekend. Which I so needed after Friday. Let me back up a bit. Jessie got out of school on Tuesday. Wednesday, she had a playdate in the afternoon, and then my mother picked her up. She spent the night at my sister’s house (staying up far too late watching – ironically …

Woo Hoo – staph infection :-)

I’ve never been so delighted to get a diagnosis. An actual diagnosis, and a nice rx to fix it. I started out with just one crack on my nipple three weeks ago, and it’s been awful. And every time I talked to a doctor, nurse, ob/gyn, any sort of actual medical professional, they just said …

Confessions

- Two days ago, I actually went to the Honey Farms up the street in my pajamas. The worst part of it was that I didn’t even realize it until after I’d walked back home. – I worry sometimes that Jess has this incredibly stressful, complicated life, filled with pitfalls and potential disasters – because …

Updates…

I’m going back to the doctor tonight, the skin around the nipple is getting flaky – and the whole thing just doesn’t look healthy. I’m nursing on that side occasionally, sometimes, she just won’t nurse on the shield, and sometimes I can’t get anything out with my manual pump and just have to nurse. But …

Tell me again

It’s worth it, right? Breastfeeding is what’s best for this girl. Because not only am I going on two and a half weeks with an unhealed crack, it’s better but by no means gone, I just discovered ANOTHER one, a little higher up on the same nipple. Am eyeing that sample of formula that I …

Happy Father’s Day

First – kudos to Marc – who, hands down, is the best dad. He’s smart, funny, loves his kids more than anything. I’m forever grateful that my children have him. In so many ways, he heals things for me, simply by loving his children the way that he does, he shows me over and over …

Looking for a new baby carrier – any suggestions?

Julie is a girl who likes being held. I’ve got two carriers, a Nojo sling that I LOVE and a homemade mei tei (?? is that what it’s called?). The problem with the sling is that it’s kind of hit or miss, it’s either super comfortable or totally not, and I can’t figure out how …

Sammy the boxer

Marc was a Golden Gloves boxer in his early twenties, and last night, there was a ceremonial passing of the torch. Or at least that’s how it felt, because Marc gave Sam a pair of his boxing gloves and let him beat him with them. We’ve got a game in our family called (oh so …

In response to crazy vaccine lady at the park

I was walking earlier today with my many, many children to the neighborhood park. I had my baby girl in her pram, sleeping soundly (she sleeps better there, I think, than anywhere else), and three preschoolers roaming ahead of me. I was obviously a good target for the anti-vaccine zealot. Anyway, I’m wandering along, pushing …
