Are you going to get rid of the cats?

            When I was pregnant, I had some friends and family ask me what we planned to do with our 4 cats. I know there are myths out there about cats stealing the baby’s breath or smothering them to death, but I never imagined I knew anyone who believed them. Having always lived around cats, I never considered if there might be an issue when Ethan arrived.  Would they get jealous and strike him? Or steal his bottle after another cat distracted me? I was more worried our dog would be upset.

Mother’s Day is Bittersweet

Yesterday was my first Mother’s Day as Mommy and I enjoyed it immensely.  Of course, there was this issue about finding a restaurant in town that had not been affected by a gas line break.  Apparently someone thought it was okay to drive into a gas transmission plant that was a pumping station for the pipeline that runs along the Florida Turnpike.

Please, come take a seat!!

Welcome to my blog where I will be sharing my musings about being a parent to my awesome babe, Ethan.  He is currently 10 months old and the light of my life, but damn if I know what to do with him!  Between feeding, changing, clothing, napping, and ENTERTAINING him I am always in a state of confusion.  If it weren’t for my husband, I don’t think Ethan would have all of his fingers and toes. This is a picture of us from Christmas time.  Though Ethan is all bundled up, it’s really not that cold out.  Yay for Florida. […]
