Parenting | The Slacker Mom



September 9, 2015

We told the boys they could have a kitten. This doesn’t seem like a huge deal, except I have been saying for the past year that I am in no uncertain terms, done with pets.  D.O.N.E.  And then a friend with a pregnant cat offers up kittens, and half jokingly I asked Yogi Dad if […]

Communication is Key

May 31, 2015

If you are going to make big sweeping changes to how something is done, you need to communicate early (and often!) to the people those changes will be affecting.  This seems like a simple rule, but  it’s not always put into practice. Over the past few months our district has been talking about upcoming changes […]

Sometimes Parenting is Hard

May 6, 2014

I’ve been saying it for a long time.  Judah is by far, our hardest kid.  He meets his milestones.  He has conversations at a level far above that at which he should.  He is polite.  He is helpful.  He is a loving cuddle bug who wants to be with me all. the. time. I asked […]

(Let’s pretend I didn’t just completely neglect this space for the better part of the past year and jump right into the here and now, shall we?) This kid joined our family: Silas 7 pounds, 11 ounces 20.25 inches At first he looked like this: All nice and pink*, and perfectly happy not impressed to […]

Queen of my Castle

November 5, 2013

This is going to ramble a bit… Way back in July (August?) we decided we were just going to go ahead and announce this pregnancy so I could freely talk about it here.  Of course that pretty much meant I would have all of the energy (and will) sapped from my body immediately and I […]

O-oh here she comes.

July 28, 2013

On Friday, I had the earliest ultrasound I have ever had. My due date was moved back two days, I got to see our teeny tiny, and hear a little heartbeat. It was awesome. I’ve been sinking into that constant nausea that slowly takes over and envelopes every movement, every breath, every second of the […]

You know what they say about plans…

July 20, 2013

35 is tricky. At least it seems to be for me. On one hand, we are finally in a house, feeling settled. On the other hand, my body is starting to rev up for the big change. Or so I thought. Apparently the ladies in my family all have biological clocks that expire in the […]

I Thought I Lost my Kid.

May 1, 2013

Right now I am sitting at my dining room table, trying to figure out how in the world I am going to get this house packed up. I can’t get the dishes done without Judah running out the backdoor, let alone do work where I need to be sorting and organizing and getting rid of […]

Don’t be Captain Obvious

March 12, 2013

There are few things that irk me more than when a pregnant woman complains of morning sickness and someone tells her to eat a Saltine before she gets out of bed in the morning. Is there anyone in the world that does not know this trick?  If you have read a book, seen a movie, […]

March 8, 2013

I used to host the Breastfeeding Blog Hop and every Thursday was my night to sit down and dish about the ups and downs of nursing.  I handed the reigns over to the lovely ladies at Sisters n’ Cloth and Life of Wife, Mummy, and Nurse this past summer but I still get a hefty […]
