“Mommy Finger, Mommy Finger,” and Other Sports

The song and its repetitive tune gets stuck on replay in my mental space as soon as I hear it again. Similar to others in its new-age nursery rhyme classification, there are many variations of this melody, and I know each one, thanks to my children’s YouTube Kids viewership. The modulations are…

She Used to Only Want Daddy…

“Hi, mommy!” Jai shrieked in a completely clear and high-pitched musical note. “Mommy! Hi! Hiiiii! Mommy! Mommmmmyyyy…!”   The hubs and I had not long dragged our suitcases into the house after five days away in what has been gloried as our most relaxing trip as a couple ever, even beating out our honeymoon. Jrue was laying in…

One Million Hair Follicles

I am practicing the school of thought where I speak as positively as possible about my baby girl’s hair so that the good vibes will have a trickle-down effect. This works sort of in the way of the “ask and you shall receive” maxim. In the recent past,…

That Big Box of Diapers

When I was expecting Jrue, I didn’t truly know what to request when friends and family would ask what they should buy for the baby. I was entirely new to the idea of a baby and, then, he was a boy, the first on my generational line on…

Surviving the Mall Playground

As my little babies have evolved into bouncing toddlers, I have discovered that there is gold within the designated children’s play areas in local malls, even as the spaces around the entertainment mounds wither under the slow demise of the shopping mall sector. If compared…

Back Talk and Tears

We stood face-to-tummy, a stand-off of sorts, him scowling at what had to be a comparable discontent reflecting back. I had instructed Jrue, “No, not right now,” and how did he respond? By screeching his initial question again, much too loudly, and throwing his arms back in an apparent rage.  …
