The Christmas Song You Love to Hate

The Christmas season is now upon us.  I am a huge fan of Christmas and I definitely live for it year long.  I have also worked retail during the Christmas season and I can tell you, it is one of the scariest times of the year.  Above that, I have worked in two different malls during… Continue reading The Christmas Song You Love to Hate


Horrors of Potty Training

Do not read if you are the faint of heart.  I remember living life in bliss, BPT (before potty training) when I didn't think about potty training.  It wasn't that I never knew that I'd have to potty train my child, it's just that it never occurred to me that it'd be a full-blown thing.… Continue reading Horrors of Potty Training

Dear Parents (A letter from a daycare worker)

Parents, I read about the article where a young boy died because a daycare worker sat on him and suffocated.  This is a hard letter for me to write because, as a mother, this is something that I prayed would never happen to my daughter.  Let me assure you, it should never happen.  This seems… Continue reading Dear Parents (A letter from a daycare worker)


What NOT To Do When Moving

Recently the Brumbelcrew* moved from our tiny two-bedroom apartment to a new location.  The new location?  My mother's house.  That's right.  This husband and wife duo, plus one kid, plus one dog, and a cat moved into two bedrooms at my mother's house.  I mean, it's not exactly two daughter is living the high… Continue reading What NOT To Do When Moving
