7 Things I Am Way Too Old For

When I was a kid, maybe a teenager, I remember hearing my mother say she was too old for a certain type of clothing. If my memory serves correctly it was a sleeveless top I suggested that she wear in the heat of the summer and she said she was too old for sleeveless tops.

    Are You Their Grandmother?

    It happened. I always knew this day would come. Someone asked me this question:

    “Are you their grandmother?”

    I always imagined my reaction would go something like this:

    “Bitch, let me slap you,”

    …or at least a really evil look. This was surprisingly a non-event. READ MORE

    This First-Time Mommy’s Sanity Was Saved With A Camera

    My first baby was one that the books (and my pediatrician) referred to as ‘spirited’.  What that really means is from the moment they are born, IF they are awake, they ARE screaming.  ‘Spirited’ is not to be confused with colic.  Spirited hangs on much longer.  She also never slept for more than 2 hours at a time (often 45 minutes) for months and months.  Even as an older baby, she didn’t sleep well and was crying most of the time.  It wasn’t a ‘something hurts’ cry, it was an ‘I’m pissed’ cry.
