The Liebster Award

April 14, 2013


So we were given an award…does that mean it’s all downhill from here? Not a Typical Mom was given the Liebster award from Rollin’ with the Fruit Punches. The Liebster award is German for “favorite” or “dearest” and is given to new blogs by fellow bloggers who like their work. I feel honored, flattered, and […]

The First Cold War

April 13, 2013


Ladies and gentlemen, sound the air raids. We have entered the cold war. Lil Johnny has his first cold. And because that’s not enough he is also teething. Bodily fluids running rampant down his face constantly. Is that snot? Is that drool? It doesn’t matter – they have joined forces and are retaliating on our […]

Spring Cleaning

April 7, 2013


This morning while playing with Lil Johnny on the floor I looked across the room and noticed our dog was under a chair. I called to her. No answer. I called again – The dog was unresponsive. Concerned, I went to check on her and realized that it wasn’t our dog… It was, in fact, […]

Bugaboo Brigade

April 5, 2013


Bugaboo Brigade Today I received an email inviting me to the launch party of the new Bugaboo Andy Warhol limited edition stroller. How did I get invited to this? I have no idea. I actually thought that maybe it was a joke at first. We don’t own a Bugaboo. And we have forgotten how to […]

12 Steps

March 22, 2013


Over the weekend we caved. We bought the damn puree machine. Its time. Time to break the addiction of jar food. Upon seeing the all-in-one baby chef contraption out of the box I immediately started having withdrawals. Why so many knobs? What does that part do? The water goes where? Fuck. Life was so easy […]


March 15, 2013


Hi. I’m a new mom and I’m a jaraholic. I have been feeding my son jarred food for about 2 months. I feed my son jar food because I don’t know how to cook, purée, or steam. I don’t know what half the fucking veggies are in the grocery store, and I don’t have time […]

Sleep deprivation is a normal part of having a child. Mix in a night of insomnia and we have a whole new level of exhaustion. We have Insomnizombie. You know the ones… The days when you find yourself sleeping in the shower, putting clothes on inside out and the bags under your eyes have their […]
