General Update

Elsa and Josh are napping, but I wouldn't suppose for too much longer. I've been home from work now for about an hour and a half. I've been surfing the internet and making a to-do list. I'm all about lists. I made a big list today of activites that Elsa and I could do, but when I went to put them on the calender here at home, we had quite a few conflicts with other activities. Oh well, there will be more to do in the weeks ahead.

I tripped on the sidewalk during one of my dog walks today. I scraped my knee up pretty bad. Bummer. UGH, I just heard the cat wretching again and I ran to catch him and toss him into the kitchen. I don't know what his problem is. At first, we thought it was hairballs, then we figured it was his food. He did fine for awhile and now he's all pukey again. And of course he only pukes on the carpet, never on the tile. I have trouble feeling sorry for him when I have to clean up puke all the time. I suppose if he doesn't stop in another day or so, I'm going to have to take him to the vet.

In other news, I'm glad the weekend is here, even though I still have four petsits to do each day. They are easy dogs and they live close so it's not a hassle. Well, the getting up early in the morning will be a hassle. Oh look, here is pukey cat walking into the office making a face at me because I tossed him mid-vomit. Well excuuuuuse me. lol

Mothering Repost

I got this in my weekly update email from and felt it so valuable that I wanted to repost it so more may read it. (And when you go to the CR article, read the comments following it, a good dose of common sense!!) recently featured a blog entry called “Five Products Not to Buy for Your Baby.” Among those five products are slings and cosleeping devices. The logic is astounding: accidents caused by irresponsible parenting, misuse of devices and, in a few cases, faulty products, have led to urge parents to avoid cosleeping as well as all slings.

Here at Mothering, we believe that babies are born to be worn. Check out Christine Gross-Loh’s “Hold Me Close: The Many Advantages to Wearing Your Baby” and “Babywearing Tips.”

When it comes to cosleeping, we quite possibly have the largest body of information available. Some of our favorite articles include James McKenna’s “Breastfeeding & Bedsharing Still Useful (and Important) after All These Years” and Tina Kimmel’s “How the Stats Really Stack Up: Cosleeping Is Twice As Safe.” When in doubt, simply stop by the Sleep section on

Just Right Now

Just another random very early morning blog post. (Mind dump?)

  • Breaking news- the zoo opens today! Josh and I both have to work- me in the am, he in the pm, so I'm not sure if we're going to go. I may take Elsa this afternoon while he's at work, or may wait until tomorrow morning when we can all go together.
  • I'm drinking my instant coffee with Caribbean cinnamon creamer. It's the Caribbean that makes all the difference.
  • I'm busy reading self help books and crocheting lately. Books on finance and spirituality and parenting. I don't want to reveal the titles, less you try to steal my self-help kung fu.
  • I have to leave for work in a half hour.
  • We finally (and by we, I mean Josh and his dad) got Elsa's swing set gigantic thing set up yesterday. She loves it, I told her it was her own park. It has a slide and three swings. I can't wait until the weather turns nice for good and we can put some flower pots on it and maybe some pinwheels and wind chimes. Really decorate it up for her this summer.
  • I am out of coffee so I am just going to go now.

A Baby Chicken

"Treat each customer like they are your best friend, grandmother, and a baby chicken all wrapped in one. Be yourself and joke around, but always be polite and don’t crush or eat them."

The most awesome quote I've read in a long time. From the interview with Allison Cecil of MonkeysAlwaysLook.
