Tales from the Toilet: The Potty-Training Diaries – Day One

Tales from the Toilet: The Potty-Training Diaries – Day One

BG2, Parenting 3

Today was a very trying and exhausting day, to say the least. Having decided to give toilet training a try at just 21 months (due to the fact that I’ll be away for school when BG2 is around 2 years old with no clue what schedule will be like), I knew I would be in for a lot of “little accidents”. Well, I got a ton of that, as well… Read more »

And the Lesson Here, is to Always Say No!

And the Lesson Here, is to Always Say No!

BG1, Parenting 11

I make it a general rule to always say no when BG1 wants to buy an app or buy one of those “in-app purchases” on one of her games. I think it’s a waste of money and she can get just as much fun out of the game for free. However, since she did receive a hefty amount of Apple Store credit as a past birthday gift, she very casually… Read more »

A Purplicious Birthday Party

A Purplicious Birthday Party

BG2, Parenting 5

I know I’m 3 months late, no excuses, but here goes. So for BG2’s birthday I wanted to stay away from characters since I did this whole Princess Party for BG1 and there weren’t any characters BG2 really liked. I also wanted to stay away from PINK because BG1 is pink enough for all of us. And, going with the trend of the time, I wanted cupcakes. The plan was… Read more »

Seriously?!? Who Makes These Shoes?!?

Seriously?!? Who Makes These Shoes?!?

BG2, Parenting 3

If there’s one thing that has bugged me since BG2 was born, it’s finding the right shoe for her. Fat, short feet = Not a good combo for shoes And my baby’s feet aren’t even THAT fat! I can’t imagine how those with bigger babies handle it. I mean, really, have these people who make baby shoes ever seen baby feet?! Granted, a lot of babies have small, thin feet,… Read more »

Chocolate Truly is the Best Medicine

Chocolate Truly is the Best Medicine

BG2, Parenting 5

Our prayers have been answered! After weeks and weeks of endless battles with the baby, I’ve finally found her happy place. CHOCOLATE!!! That’s right, the girl loves her chocolate milk. One squirt of that yummy syrup or even a spoonful of powder in her milk and she can’t finish it fast enough! Hallelujah! Praise the skies above for we have found our savior! Okay, enough of that. I’m honestly just… Read more »

The Love of a Sister

The Love of a Sister

BG1, BG2, Parenting 15

Sisters truly are one of the best things in life. I, personally, have a pretty good relationship with my little sister who is 5 years younger than me, which is a pretty big but decent gap. When I found out I was having another girl, I was worried that since BG1 is over 6 years older than the baby, they might not play together at all. I found I was… Read more »

I’ve Got a Quirky Baby

I’ve Got a Quirky Baby

BG2, Parenting 4

Why do you repeatedly put your chubby little finger in the VCR we never use when you know it will just get stuck there, which will cause you to turn and look at me with those sad, big eyes and a frown on your face until I come over and pull your finger out? And then you go and do it again. And now you’ve graduated to repeatedly opening the… Read more »

I Almost Lost It Today

I Almost Lost It Today

BG2, Parenting 20

BG2 is not your average baby when it comes to the bottle. For some reason, she just isn’t a fan. Eventually we resorted to only feeding her a bottle when she naps and sleeps at night, which averages out to 3-4 bottles (18-24 oz) a day. It was tough, but we managed. Then came time to make the BIG SWITCH to cow’s milk. And we thought she wasn’t a fan… Read more »

Happy SITS Day! Let Me Entertain You With Some Anecdotes

Happy SITS Day! Let Me Entertain You With Some Anecdotes

BG1, Parenting 78

Welcome! Welcome everyone, to my humble online abode. I hope you enjoy your stay here. I’ve been waiting for this day for quite some time and when I finally got the email, I panicked. How am I going to best present myself so you all could see how interesting and great I am?! I argued over a self-interview, a mini autobiography, links of some of my favorite posts, etc. After… Read more »

Blogoversary Celebration: The Best Of – Parenting

Blogoversary Celebration: The Best Of – Parenting

Blog Related, Parenting 1

It kind of sucks that I haven’t developed this feature more because I love it and it’s been popular in the past. But it’s one of my goals for the coming year. Mommy Moments is really about anything related to parenting and I’d occasionally write a post about when I feel that Mother emotion, whether it’s pride, fear, sadness, or joy. I later expanded it to include guest posts from… Read more »
