How Do You Define “Necessity”? [Pic]


This is a great reminder to keep things in perspective this shopping season. Yes, we live in a different society, but we are all humans with basic needs and stuff is not one of them.
I Love/Hate You Ultrasound- Motherhood Without Warning
The ultrasound is an amazing mark of technology and a huge medical advance from the x-ray.  The kind of ultrasound I'm talking about is technically ultrasonography, the kind used to see fetuses in the womb. Basically sound waves are presenting an image, that's how I interpret the words I don't under…
RIP Levon Helm, Singer and Drummer of The Band
A music legend has passed. Levon Helm, singer and drummer of The Band passed away yesterday at the age of 71 after a battle with throat cancer.  As with most music popular in the 60's and 70's my Dad encouraged me to listen when I was young, so Levon's voice has always been familiar. I've included m…
Babysitters in Fort Collins- How Much? Where Do You Find Them?
I'm a working Mom and I have tried and struggled through every childcare scenario out there. It was horribly hard to leave my new baby with anyone besides family. But at some point you branch out to friends, then perhaps to a paid stranger. The benefit of the paid stranger is that you are paying the…
The Dr. Katz Video That Will Become My Life- Motherhood Without Warning
My husband and I are expecting identical twin boys sometime in May. Entering the world of twins is very different than expecting just one baby.  There is this whole mystical, intriguing thing about twins.

I Swear I Need This Motorized Cart- Motherhood Without Warning [Video]
It's embarrassing to be out of breath from sitting down.  I haven't taken a deep  breath in weeks.  So add to that the feeling that if I walk too much my huge belly feels as though it may in fact bounce onto the ground and you get ridiculous discomfort. I'm 32 weeks pregnant with twins. Bigger than …
Move Over Cigarette Butts, Floss Picks Are Here! [Video]
I'm one of those people who cannot stand seeing someone throw trash on the ground. It's not about the environment.  It's about lazy humans with no respect. I grew up in the middle of nowhere with lots of clean fields and dirt roads, trash was obvious, so maybe I just have a super…

Minivan Hell- Motherhood Without Warning
The MINIVAN. It never crossed my mind I would need to have one, just like it never crossed my mind we would have 3 children. But of course, when we found out we were having twins, it all changed. The logistics of having 3 car seats in a station wagon (even my dreamy Volvo) are not realistic and ther…
