It’s hard to write a post with a baby in a bjorn

It’s hard to write a post with a baby in a bjorn

And I think that’s iambic pentameter…. Anyways, it’s 8 pm, and hubby is getting our 2 y/o Babyboy to sleep, which I’m sure means they’re on the seventh reading of “Tough Trucks”. I’m trying to simultaneously entertain our 7-month-old Babygirl while reflecting on the latest […]

Screaming Frustration: Our 2-year-old Won’t Talk

Screaming Frustration: Our 2-year-old Won’t Talk

I say won’t instead of can’t because he could and now he doesn’t. Last fall, Babyboy had a little reliable vocabulary– Done, Hot, Down, Melon. (Yes, Melon. Cantaloupe is his favorite food.) Then, Babygirl was born. The words dried up, and we’re still waiting for […]

Catching Up On Sleep… On Call

Catching Up On Sleep… On Call

It was a long, long day yesterday, with our 2-year-old running a high fever, refusing to eat or drink anything, but worst of all, absolutely clinging to us and crying a hoarse, wailing cry we had never heard before. He was even drooling alot. I […]

When your kid is sick…

When your kid is sick…

Babyboy, our hale and hearty 2-year-old, who has been sleeping through the night basically since he was 3 weeks old, awoke this morning at 4 a.m., wailing. I went to lift him out of his crib thinking, wet diaper? bad dream? And was shocked by […]

Enjoying a sleepy rainy lazy weekend morning

Enjoying a sleepy rainy lazy weekend morning

We’re coming off of an incredibly busy time, all of us here in the Genmedmom Village. And every day that I don’t blog, I feel guilty. And cheated! It feels GOOD to blog, to share our experiences, to get feedback and know that we’re not […]

Praying For Equanamity

Praying For Equanamity

Equanimity:  The quality of being calm and even-tempered; composure.  A state of stability arising from a deep awareness and acceptance of the present moment. Evenness of mind, especially under stress. When my husband got a call  offering him a short-term but highly regarded job, I […]
