What NOT to do in the hospital...Talkin' Shop.

Yo!! If you've learned anything from my Talkin ' Shop posts (click for a direct link to all of my prior TS posts!) you'll know that I love to fill you in on the side of labor and delivery most people don't see, or, heck, even know exists. This, my a "What NOT to Do" post. Listen up. You hear me? ARE YOU LISTENING???? Okay then. Now that I have your attention... First things first, do NOT, whatever you do, miss out on ENJOYING your birth! Try not to get caught up in worry and fear of the unknown...birthing a babe is the most amazing thing in the whole world, do NOT let anything overshadow that. Next, do NOT forget to brush your teeth. Many, many times during labor. Or, at the very least, suck on a mint. Just don't choke on it...there's too much paper work involved in that sort of thing. Try not, if you can at all help it, to name your sweet, lovely, unborn, unsuspecting newborn: "Vitamin". Please. Just...well, just please. Remem

Dear Friends...

So as not to cause you undue worry and concern, I'm giving you an update on my concussion boy. Oh, had no idea of the concussion saga? Well then, apparently you need to follow me on Twitter. ;) It's kind of a long I'll try not to be too wordy. goes: Friday night, my boy complains of a headache. Saturday morning he wakes up early (and by early I mean, I wasn't awake when he left at the God awful hour of 6 am...I mean who invented 6 am anyway?! I hear by call to abolish 6am...any ' yays '?) and leaves to go to a football game. I pick him up from said football game when the bus delivered him to the high school at 3 pm. He was quiet, droopy, and smelly. Not talkative, at all, but that's not overly unusual for him. We drop off his friend, and The Pal tells me he feels wonky and that he took a "helmet to helmet" hit at the game. Being he looks so punk, I feel his forehead and lo and behold...he's warm! We get home a


My home is a mess of boom trucks: Curious kids: Wigged out dogs: An escapee mouse: (PS...hairy stuff is not from mouse, it is from the bottom of the couch. Don't ask.) And a boogery, sneezy, cranky, sweaty, tired mama : Image unavailable. I did not want to be responsible for the peeing in of pants and/or the possibility of computer monitor breakage. You're welcome. Please send help. And a bottle of wine Zyrtec.

It's time for a Date...ACHOOOO!!

Hello, friends. This is Mama M., reporting live from the "Epic Allergy Attack of 2010". * ACHHHOOOOOO ! Please excuse me, if I sneeze. * ACHHHOOOOO ! Currently, I'm wondering where a body metabolizes Zyrtec, ' cuz I'm thinking that maybe if I take the whole bottle, then, perhaps, I'll be able to stop this sneezing and sniffling and red runny eye business I've got goin' on. And, I'm sort of at the point where I'm thinking that the risk of needing, say, a liver transplant would be worth a little relief from this. I kid. Sort of. I've taken to wearing my N95 mask from work and a space suit when I go outside. Yes, I may look funny, but I'll do what it takes to prevent that damn pollen from getting near me. In fact, speaking of space...maybe I'll move. To Mars. I hear there are no trees there. Or grass. Or ragweed or goldenrod or whateverthehell it is that is making me sneeze 8,936,173 times a day. Ack ! I'm sorry for whining...I

Happy Birthday...

to you... Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear mine mama...Happy Birthday to you! Happy "Diamond Platinum" Birthday, mom!
