My **New Adventure**

Sooo… guess what. I have made a leap into something that makes me a wee bit nervous.  (Though, come to think of it, not even close to as nervous as I got becoming a teacher or bringing a baby into the world.) I have decided to join the ranks of the Pampered Chef Consultants!  My Consultant Kit has arrived, filled […]

Time for Early to Bed

Another tough day. When I say “another tough day”, I’m aware that a tough day as E’s mama is actually a walk in the park and I have no call whatsoever to complain Still, I’m tired and have a sore throat I just want to do right by my little boy but I know he didn’t get enough naps today […]


Just to reiterate… it’s November 11th.  And interestingly, it’s 11 pm as I begin this post.  (Definitely not the “last post” though – haha.  Sorry.  Not a joke.) Oops, I didn’t mean to start off all irreverent, especially since this post is about Remembrance Day and how I take it very seriously.  I really do.  As a teacher, I make […]

Undulating Perspective

Funny how quickly an outlook can change. As with most people, I imagine, depending on how much sleep I’ve had, how much exercise I’ve gotten, my blood sugar level, how many hugs I’ve recently received, how long I’ve listened to crying that day, the stress levels of my loved ones, etc. etc., my perspective on life sways wildly on the […]


Bit of a tough day today. I guess no first-time parents get everything right.  We love our children to pieces and want them to be happy, so I believe almost everything we do with them is well-intentioned.  But then, sometimes what the Baby Whisperer would call “Accidental Parenting” comes into play. E is five months old, and he has always […]

Actually, it's November 8th. Today.

I don’t know why, but my blog records all my posts as a day later than they actually are.  Like somehow I can see into the future?  Write the future?  (“It’s like I have ESPN or something!”) So today is November 8th, and my little baby (“E”) is five months old.  Already!  And he truly is the best, most cutest, […]

Hee hee…

Secret’s out! That is to say, my lovely blogtacular sister knows I have a blog, because I commented on her blog while (b)logged in as my blogself.  And then she wrote about it on Facebook, so who knows who will know next?? Funny, because I was already thinking about writing today about how I’m not good at keeping secrets.  I […]

NaBloPoMo, NaNoWriMo. (DoWiSeTrePla?)

How auspicious!  I have started blogging, just by coincidence, during NaBloPoMo, National Blog Posting Month.  All I have to do is blog every day… no problem!  (Way easier than if I had to jog every day.  I am just not a runner.)  Of course, I missed a couple days there, but I can do some extras on the end, right?  […]

Dilovely's Little List of Goals

I’m enjoying this.  I enjoy that I don’t need preamble or continuity to write in my Bloggy Blog.  No constraints on length or level of awesomeness. (When my sister started her blog and left for Europe, I discovered that my baby son gives big smiles when you say “Blogblogblogblogblog.”) What was my topic again? Oh right.  Since I am so […]
