“real”

Somebody ‘gently’ reminded me that the title of my blog is ‘Real’ Mommy Chronicles.  The reason they reminded me of this was because I was so vague about having something happen medically that prevented me from posting.  The truth is that I had Mastitis, which is directly related to being a ‘Mommy.’ This person obviously [...]

Ch-ch-ch-changes

First of all, let me apologize for again not posting.  I had a post-delivery  medical set back that left me unable to do much but lie in bed for two days.  I am getting better and should be able to continue posting now…I know, big sigh of relief, right?  You must be so excited. So, [...]

Carlitos! Stop eating your brother this instant!

There are lots of things about pregnancy that you conveniently ‘forget’ about: not being able to lay flat on your back, the indigestion, those tendons that feel like they are ripping to shreds, having to pass up good (read: French/unpasteurized) cheese…oh, and that labor pain.  I am assuming that this type of  ‘pregnancy amnesia’ is  [...]
