On June 30th, 2011 at 17:17 in the afternoon to be exact, my new baby girl literaly glided into the world and our waiting arms. For once, after two very long and difficult past births, I was rewarded with a wonderful experience. If you are reading this, thanks everyone at the hospital!   Now that the […]

A rant and a delicious countdown

I’d like to issue a a warning to my male readers: I am about to talk shop about my pregnancy. Be warned or just skip to the food photos down below at any time if you feel  faint. So after 17 weeks of nausea (as I wrote in the past, morning sickness is a term invented by a […]

Anti-Stress Recipe

I finally did it. I packed my bags and left. For a week. All alone. No husband. No kids. No laundry. If you ignore the fact that my husband practically kicked me out and my friend Val kidnapped me kicking and screaming from the sidewalk, you can actually be proud of me. I slept as […]

This Friday morning I woke up determined to get back in the saddle. Four weeks of utter chaos (aka “vacation”) left me yearning for some good old routine.

Enough already

I ain’t really here. Just past some of the night in a real bed while Grandma took charge for a few hours. I hang out at a hospital now, with a 2-year-old pneumonia patient, going out every 3 hours to breast feed in a car. Not fun. I begin to wonder if the big guy has it […]
