Coffee: A New Way to be Not Tired!

Yeah! So! Yeah! Let’s review the past 9 years! December 2002: I get pregnant. Give up coffee like the books scared me into doing (also, was barfing too much to ingest much of anything). January 2003: Dave tells me, in the nicest way possible, that I am much less bitchy without caffeine. 2003: Henry is [...]

Naming Names

Children’s Book of the Week coming back soon, I promise. The next one I want to write up requires Henry to sing a song, so I just haven’t gotten around to recording him yet. (Plus I still have three more things — two small, one large-ish — to do for school, and those take priority [...]

I know I’m big, but…

Yesterday a woman said to me, “Any day now, huh?” and I had to swallow and smile and say, “I’ve got four more months!” She totally backtracked and said something about, “Oh, but you’re gorgeous!” and it was all I could do not to say, “Yeah, whatever, shut up, lady.” (Instead I very diplomatically said, [...]

Thank you for your patience…please stand by.

Two more weeks left in this class, and then regular blogging will resume. Random thought of the day: if we name the baby something that starts with an A, then I can arrange the kids’ first initials to spell out HAZE.

I’m ten minutes away from legwarmers

Ok: I hate being pregnant. I know there are some women who get all ecstatic and rejuvenated and glowy, but that’s not me. I’m not glowy. I’m ashen and sullen and there’s a permanent crease between my eyebrows. I hate being sick, that’s for sure, but that ends (as it has, thank you), and I [...]

Yes, well, there’s something I have to tell you

There’s this: Which, you know, means this: (Couldn’t resist throwing in another image from the Charley Harper biology book.) Which, you know, means, um, WHAT!? Or, at least, that was my first reaction. Which was quickly followed by, “Oh you have got to be kidding me.” Then my reaction was to fall to the ground [...]

Non, je ne regrette rien.

When I was pregnant with Zuzu, I had one of those life crisis epiphanies that happens when you are pregnant with your third baby and you’re trying to remember what exactly it was you wanted to do with your life again (start a commune? what? manage a small independent bookstore? when?). This particular life crisis [...]
