Operation Terrible Twos

Out of my intrepid fear of cliches, I may have been unclear with Tuesday's post. Even though we survived the Spawnocalypse--two and a half years of transition from daydreaming newlyweds to sometimes-haggard parents of back-to-back babies--this journey and blog are far from over.But, at the risk of using dark analogies to describe parenthood (who, me?), my point…See More

I have a doctor's note

Dear Internet,Please excuse Deb's less-than-prolific (and kind of sucky) posting as of late.As this writer's physician, I also pronounce that this letter does not violate blogging commandment number 3, as there is a legitimate medical reason behind her lack of inspiring prose (and ability to wash the kitchen floor). In particular, Ms. NoReturnMom's iron level is staggeringly low. How low? Well, an adult female should expect to see an iron count around 100, in order for her blood to adequately…See More

Spawnocalypse FAQs

Or maybe more like FYIs. Whatever. Here goes.Q: What's with the name Spawnocalypse--do you hate your kids?A: No way. Most days, Gunnar (2) and Annalie (1) are the only people I can stand. At least they have a reason to be narcissistic and manipulative, and they usually make me laugh in the process--more than I can say for a lot of adults. The name signifies that parenthood brought the end of the world as I knew it, which has been in a lot of ways…See More

Brae Lee Craig commented on NoReturnMom's blog post 'Is it okay to shower with your kid?'
"LOL. They came out of my VAGINA, I think they can handle seeing me naked here or there. I don't have sex in front of them. I am comfortable with my body, and I think they need to be comfortable with theirs. We don't go out of the house…"

Amy Musing commented on NoReturnMom's blog post 'Is it okay to shower with your kid?'
"If I need a bra and the only clean ones are in the laundry basket in the basement that never made it upstairs, I will walk by my two boys and go get it. No towel. No modesty. Just matter of fact. My boys are used to random nudity, which is to say…"

NoReturnMom replied to Carissa Rogers's discussion 'Who do you write for?' in the group Writing Moms
"Depending on the post, I kind of always have a different individual in my mind as I write--a neighbor, my boss, my husband, a relative, an old friend, a new friend--but with zero regard as to whether that particular person will read and how he or…"

Is it okay to shower with your kid?

At this point in my parenting career, I'm pretty good at taking others' opinions in stride. Think cloth diapers and home schooling are the way to go? Fine. Neither are for me, but who cares?But every so often, I kick myself for not addressing a remark more clearly (or at all). So, behind the shield of the Internet, consider exhibit A...What? You shower with your son? Gross.As a person with generous sebaceous glands and kids that wake before dawn, I was thrilled to discover I could kill two…See More

Interview with a fellow bulimia survivor

I recently discovered Lori Hanson and her blog, Learn2Balance, full of wonderfully insightful articles about eating disorders and recovery. Lori should have insights—she’s been there, too. Although I share with you my experiences dealing with food issues from time to time, I have only my narrow perspective to provide. No research. Few answers.So, I sent Lori an email asking if…See More

NoReturnMom replied to Molly's discussion 'Do you ever psych yourself out before a race?' in the group Running Mommies
"Before having kids, I got worked up about sticking to my training plan perfectly and nervous about performing well. But now I look at running (especially w/out the jogging stroller) as a treat. I try to tell myself that any run, race or not, is a…"

When having a smartypants hurts

My firstborn has a gift of gab that regularly makes me smile, shake my head, or laugh out loud and/or temporarily lose control of bodily functions. But on the other side of all those comical quips are the occasional words that break my heart.A few days ago, as I was administering morning milk and diaper changes and bleary-eyed snuggles as usual, both toddlers tugging on me and grappling for a prime lap spot, Gunnar firmly grabbed my knee, looked me in the eye, and said, "I want Annie's mommy."I…See More

My two cents on unsolicited advice

An old friend's Facebook status states--with a period, not a question mark--that his baby is suffering from her first cold. How do you respond?Although I usually use punctuation as my guide, sometimes I can't resist trying so save a fellow parent some of the trial and error I've already exhausted. So, picturing the week ahead for my friend with the sick four-month-old, I had to recommend Little Noses saline drops before feedings and sleep.When my friend replied with a "thank you," I proceeded…See More

Getting bossy for a good cause

I'm not really the kind of blogger (or person) who tells other adults what to do (the kids are fair game, obviously), but I think I'm becoming an unofficial ambassador for the Red Cross.If you're eligible to donate blood, you can make an appointment online right this second on the Red Cross website. Setting up an account, finding a blood drive/donation center, and making an appointment takes less than five…See More

All about Annie

I've gotten a lot of comments on my Facebook page lately to the effect of, "Keep those hilarious updates about your son coming!" I wonder if my old high school classmates realize I have a daughter, too. It's true, I don't report as much about her, with her big brother providing so much easy fodder.But even though my little girl isn't policing other kids' dirty diapers just yet, that doesn't mean that one-year-old (okay,…See More

Hi there from The Girlz Korner in upstate New York where you'll find light, witty and rather entertaining articles on every topic imaginable from The Little Black Dress to Making Whoopie. So if you get a chance to kick back and exhale, if only for a brief moment ... come on over and see me some time.
