Everything you ever wanted to know (and then some) about circumcision: From Penn & Teller’s Showtime Bullshit! series, here’s The Bullshit of Circumcision I think this video speaks for itself. I will add that “brief nudity” is an understatement in this episode’s case, and (as this shows actual circumcisions being performed on babies) this is not for the faint of heart. That’s all I’m gonna say about that.

It’s time for another round of Best Shot Monday. I know it’s late in the day to be posting, but better late than never, right? And since I’m just now getting the opportunity to do this, I’m not sharing just one shot, but several from this weekend. I mean, might as well kill two birds with one stone and all that, and I usually have a hard time picking just one photo to share anyway. We had gorgeous weather here this weekend – sunny and in the 80s – and we spent quite a bit of time outside enjoying it. On Saturday, we had aRead More →

“The truth will set you free. But first, it will piss you off.” — Gloria Steinem Thank you all so very much for your honesty, candor and support regarding my last post. I greatly admire each of you for sharing your own personal struggles with me, as well as the things you’ve found to help you cope. On one hand, I’m glad to know I’m not alone. On the other hand, it saddens me that so many of us struggle with this and yet never talk about it. I often find it hard to open up to other women, even those I consider friends. BloggingRead More →

In the spirit of putting more of myself “out there,” here it is, as promised – my completely honest post. – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – It recently occurred to me that because I tend to focus on positive things on my blog, that I may give the impression that I have this parenting thing all figured out. And while I do feel like I excel at baby rearing, I find myself strugglingRead More →

Sorry for not writing any thought-provoking posts yet, but those kind of posts take time and brain power – neither of which I feel I have a lot of at the moment – and I had to get this in ASAP. ;) If you haven’t yet cast your vote for Julian in the Shutterfly “Cutest Kid Contest” and would still like to, you have only a few more days before the contest ends.

  My boy is 5 months old today. Can you believe it? Time sure flies when you’re running around like a chicken with her head cut off. Sorry for that visual. Ugh. (I had to share a pic of the girl along with the boy. I took both of those today. If you know anything about almost 3-year-olds, you would marvel right along with me that the girl had a quiet, somber moment today. It was fleeting, but I captured it.) Seriously though, we’ve been PLENTY busy around here lately. As you may have previously read, my mom was in town and staying with usRead More →
