"Honest" Bloggers

When I write about things here on my blog, I make it a point not to exaggerate, or embellish things to seem a way that they are not.  Basically, I avoid being a liar.  I consider myself a pretty candid person.  I try my best to present things diplomatically, and not be rude, even though…

a little celebration (very pic heavy)

In honor of Izzy’s half-birthday, I gave her a little mini celebration. I fixed her a little “pie” (because she can’t have cake, and besides, that’s for her 1st birthday.) Izzy’s “pie” crust if made of pureed sweet potato mixed with crushed Baby Mum Mum rice cakes.  It is coated with crushed multigrain cheerios.  The filling is…

So, on this past Saturday, I told you guys about the our cold turkey attempt to wean Izzy from being swaddled to sleep.  The first nap was an ordeal.  The second nap was another.  Bedtime was no different, until I reintroduced her boppy pillow.  I put a blanket over it, to create a kind of bowl,…

Batter them.  Fry them up.  And enjoy.  But not really, because that’s totally not even what this post is about. 🙂 There are a couple of quotes, by Mark Twain, that inspired this post.  You’ve probably heard them before, from motivational speakers, or…
