O.M.I.B – Gravity

For the first time in, I don’t even know how long, I’m writing how I used to.  I’m in my bathrobe, my hair is soaking wet, and I’m listening to Maynard.  None of this is relevant, except maybe that I’m listening to Thirteenth Step album by APC. “What goes up, must come down” popped in...

Summer haircuts!!

Lock wanted his hair cut like Corey Taylor.  I don't think I've ever seen him so happy and excited. Haha the coolest thing is when your kids fall in love with your loves. If I had my way, Lock would actually be named Corey Taylor, but Jack overrode me and we compromised with a character... Continue Reading →

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #14

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #13 I was taking a bath yesterday, and I started chuckling.  I had carved out a few hours to do a New Moon ritual, including a nice, long, relaxing bath.  My hippie side aside, I was laughing at the fact that I scheduled a damn bath.  I thought about how much...

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #13

Continued from Yesterday... Depending on your answer on how you parent yourself, I have determined I am a hypocrite and I am objectively logical in raising my children, and subjectively irrational to myself.  1 of the complex types refuses to follow any rules.  I've always been that stubborn, "I'll do it my way".  I don't...

“Mommy, why did you get sick?”

As little as two months ago, that question would have started a shit-storm of self loathing, anger, and telling myself what a lousy Mom I am.  I don't think any parent wants their child to see them as weak, struggling, or sick.  I suspect it is even more so when the sickness in question is...

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #12

Continued from Yesterday... Have you ever thought about how you treat yourself? I've been doing a lot of study/work on the inner child, and I embraced the notion of re-parenting your inner child.   It all started with the simple suggestion to ask myself, "What do I need today?"  I started my day journaling it to...

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #11

Continued from yesterday Coping skills are not for certain people.  It is not a mental illness only thing.  We all need coping skills, because the world is not a helicopter parent.  The world will not protect you, nor will people.  I find it interesting that diagnoses are higher than ever, coping skills seem in short...

One Mom’s Itchy Butt – #10

If I were to say I have an arch-nemesis, it would be the Helicopter Parent.  We've all seen them, and if you are one of them, this will likely offend you.  At the playground, I see them hovering to ensure Billy doesn't scrape his knee or enjoy independent play.  You can tell them on Facebook...

One Mom’s Itchy Butt #8

Hip Opening exercises are amazing for releasing emotion.  What is not amazing is dealing with the emotions that arise, if you've spent years disconnecting from or repressing them.  I realized my bad mood yesterday was the first wave of the emotional surge.  I was expecting sadness, but I was trying to keep everything open, and just...
