Look! I made a person.

I’ve recently taken a hiatus from my blog because I was busy with a new endeavor. I made a person.

Young Frankenstien

Well, I didn’t make this person completely by myself. I had some help.


Fortunately, (or maybe unfortunately?) it didn’t require that I become a mad scientist following in the footsteps of Dr. Victor Frankenstein, but instead, I became a mother.

Motherhood, although fairly common, still feels a bit surreal to me. Never in a million years did I think it would be okay to let someone sh*t all over me. Β Yet, in the past month, I have found myself involuntarily covered in poo on more than one occasion, AND I keep going back! What IS that? And, I feel so INCREDIBLY lucky that this guy, the one who sh*t all over me, is healthy! What is this world coming to?! Β It is bizarre-o world, and it seems I love it.

  1. Love the blog, Amy. I am so thrilled for you that you have become a mom. There is nothing better! It can be so hard sometimes and so fun other times. Nothing has been as rewarding for me as watching my two kids grow to adults.

  2. Hold on, (stupid WordPress! I have a LOT more to say than that- haa…) Maybe that’s the universe telling me to keep it short. πŸ˜‰ So I will. Just want to say, that I’m so freaking happy for you. Take a gazillion pictures. Oh! And brainwash him. Because mine are all like, 18+ and they have like, their own goofy things going on (like their lives) and I never get to see them and they have their own thoughts, ideas, beliefs, and values and it’s- all just ridiculous. Like a conspiracy. So yeah- start when he’s little (like 2 weeks) sort of Svengali-like, right? So that when he’s older he’ll be MK-Ultra’d into seeing you like clockwork every other day or so. (It’s too late for me and mine.)

    Yahpoo! <<<<< I'm not kidding. I honest-to-God tried to type YaHOO and that's what came out. Freudian slip or not- that sucker's staying…haha… x

    • HAhaaaaa!!! That cracks me up that it accidentally came out “Yahpoo!!” I’m glad you kept it!!

      I will do my best to start the subliminal “visit all the time” messages right now! And take lots and lots of pictures! Auntie Brigitta πŸ˜‰


      • I’m dead serious- that’s how it came out, so I knew it was destined to be there…heheh. They grow up so fast! One ear they’re slobbering and the next they’re sneaking out of the house. I am positively ticked pink for you. πŸ™‚ He’s going to want a sister you know. (That’s what I did. Brianna and then Brian. They were like twins! Only 1 year and 11 months apart.)

        Well I can’t wait to see how Jr. grows over the coming years. No doubt he’s going to be just as funny and as talented as his Mama. (And Daddy!) ;0)


  3. Congrats! My daughter once did a projectile poo that splattered onto my nightgown, around about at shoulder height, while I was changing her nappy – in the middle of the night of course. Bet you never imagined talking about poo so much. Parenthood really made me a lot less precious about such stuff!


    • Woweee!! Thank you for stopping by. I’m so glad to see you!!

      I am working on a post now, but between going back to work at the crisis center, working on my own business, having the baby, and mostly OVER THINKING it, it’s taken me a month, so far, to write the post! HA!

      I think I just need to inhale a bottle of merlot, hit publish, and hope for the best πŸ˜€

      Either way, I will be sure to include a picture of Henry in it for you!

      Thank you, so much B, for being such a source of support and encouragement for me. ❀

      Wait, I was just at your site for a sec and skimmed a few things…are you back together with your bf? Wow have I been missing out!!!



      • Hey, you’re welcome, Amy. πŸ™‚ I second that on the “Merlot inhalation”! Remember, you’ve got a good 7 years or so to get your “party animal” on (I would recommend doing so with Sesame Street breaks- it’s the bomb- haha) and then, unfortunately, it’s Sober City (where fun goes to die). At least for a little while. ;0) Just think: “permanently pregnant”.

        Really though, on a serious note, when my kids entered the 7-10 age bracket, I knew I was running out of time (with some things) because they were starting to watch me a lot closer then! So, I made some necessary changes- which completely sucked, I might add- and for the next 10 years proceeded to be all “Suzy Sunshine” and June Cleaver.

        Fast forward another 9 years. They’re all grown and have left the house, and I can finally be as wild and crazy as I want! Unfortunately, having to have lived as a cake-baking, story-telling “fun Mom” for so long, I’ve now adopted those habits and it’s probably not a bad thing in the long run. πŸ™‚

        In short, you’ve got 7 years left to be wild and crazy. Haha….


  4. Congrats, he’s adorable. I know what you mean, when I had my son I was shocked that everything he did was so cute, it felt weird that it was a ll cute, but perfectly right at the same time. πŸ™‚
