Stocking Stuffers

The bane of my existence. Even when I find gift shopping difficult I can usually pull it together. Stockings on the other hand, are difficult no matter what. This year I did manage to get them done early but it wasn’t any less difficult! I did not intentionally get all the boys Star Wars socks….

Black Maddness Haul Part 1

I talked about going out shopping on Black Friday. I thought I would share our “haul” from that day. I say “haul” because we really didn’t’ buy much that day. Even if you lump in Saturday, we still didn’t buy that much. I was not very impressed with the sale ads that were released and…

Cloth Diaper: Lil Joey

Lil Joeys were my favorite diapers for PirateM when he was a newborn. He fit into newborn sizes for several weeks after he was born despite being my biggest and chunkiest baby of the three. They are AIO and made to be on the small side. If you have a premie or a smaller baby…

6 Month Update

I can not believe it. My baby boy is 6 months old. When did he go and get so big so fast? I figured with everything that had been going on, a 6 month update on Pirate M was needed. Now that he has had his 6 month well baby exam. We have had an…

Pirate GERD’s

For those who have experienced it you probably already know what this post is about. Others may be scratching their heads wondering what in the world I got a hold of and who let me on the computer. I promise I am not drunk blogging. Not this time. This is just an update of PirateM….

Late Night Musings

Today has been a sucky day. Complete and utter suck. The only good things to happen this week were us getting paid and I got all my homework done by Monday night. Otherwise it has just been a nope week. PirateM has been in a funk and staying up until 3 AM with only 2…

Tongue Twisters? Tongue Ties!

We all know what a tongue twister is but do you know what a tongue tie is? If you don’t know don’t feel bad. I didn’t either until Little M came along. Now we are fighting the same problem, albeit to a lesser degree, with Pirate M. Little M was breastfed. There came a point…

Grovia: Newborn (Old Style)

I didn’t start out cloth diapering Pirate M right away. We decided to use disposables in the hospital and through the meconium phase. Once he was having regular, normal breastfeeding bowel movements then we transitioned to cloth. I knew before he was born that we wanted to do newborn cloth. While we were exploring and…

PM Birth Story

Continuing our birth story series with my latest bundle of joy, PirateM. I had a not so great experience with LittleM after we arrived at the hospital that I am allowed to use with my insurance. So when we got our surprise Christmas Eve present of a positive home test I gave them one chance….

Ecocentric Mom: July/August

I absolutely ADORE this Ecocentric Mom subscription box. It is one of the few that I am keeping past the trial period. The box is only $20 every two months and the samples and products you get are absolutely fantastic.  If you have read any of my past box reviews you’ll know that I don’t…
