Our Hilarious First Time in the ER

Aside from my daughter having glasses, she has another minor condition that has gotten better over time.  Part of her being born prematurely, she ended up with a breathing condition called Tracheomalacia.  In a newborn, this occurs when the cartilage in the windpipe has not developed properly. Instead of being rigid, the walls of the trachea are floppy. Because the windpipe is the main airway, breathing difficulties begin soon after birth.

An Open Letter to Alex Gardega

I am sorry that my child intimidates you.

Are you confused? Don’t be.  You are the one that decided that better use of $360,000 was not to donate to a scholarship fund, or donate to a hospital, yet to feed your man-child ego to build poorly crafted statue of a pug (which next to a chihuahua, is arguably one of the most annoying small dogs) figuratively urinating on the Fearless Girl on Wall Street.

Please Stop Telling Me to Have More Kids

Believe it or not – before I had my daughter – I was quite content in the thought of being the cool aunt that travelled to far off lands and came back with cool souvenirs and clothes from distant lands.  I was diagnosed with PCOS and a tilted ovary when I was 18 years old and pretty much decided that I wouldn’t kill myself at the thought of not having much of a chance to have children.  I would not live my life trying to get pregnant.  If it happened it happened … and if it didn’t and I did want kids, I would adopt a couple of 4 or 5 year olds.

I Won Mother’s Day Today

IMG_4983This morning I woke up feeling grateful because Little Me actually slept in her own bed last night – she’s at that age where she climbs in my bed at night – or in some cases, never leaves and I fall asleep first. I stretched out and as we all do at this day and age – grabbed my cell phone and started scrolling through my social media and Mother’s day text messages.   Continue reading
