It’s Been a Long Few Months Waiting on Test Results

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom I didn’t worry too much about my toddler going to see a pediatrician for his delay in speech. My family doctor has always been very thorough and would rather get a specialist involved then blow something off. Even when the pediatrician wanted to see my son again… Read More »

Jealousy Can Push One To Do Strange Things

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom Daddy is officially my son’s favourite parent. I knew it was coming. I saw the signs. We can both make Jr. laugh, but it’s Daddy who usually gets the I’m-laughing-but-I’m-not-making-a-sound-just-shaking-because-it’s-so-funny laughs while I usually get the pity tee-hees. We can both rock our son to sleep at… Read More »

Haunted Houses, Scarily Accurate Homemade Costumes and AYCE Candy — Halloween Is the Best

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom Sure, Christmas is alright. There’s tasty baked goods, family dinners, A Christmas Story and gifts, but where’s the spookiness? Yes, a large man dressed in Coca-Cola colours creeping around and eating your cookies is a tad spooky, but it’s no Halloween. October 31st has ghosts, goblins, freaks… Read More »

Thanksgiving Weekend With Three Dinners and No Couch-Naps

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom Ahhhhh yes, Thanksgiving long weekend. Just kicking back and thinking about everything I’m thankful for. Show up at a relative’s place, eating enough to audition for Woman vs Food, finding room for dessert and napping on the couch. This is what Thanksgiving used to be like before… Read More »

When Is the Right Time to Have Baby #2?

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom I have multi level to-do lists. What to do this hour, this day, this week, this lifetime. I’ve always written to-do lists, even after I forgot one at my first job and my co-workers and boss read the day to-do list which included “shave everything.” As I… Read More »

Marriage II Society

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom Each marriage is a tiny society with its own rules, laws and regulations. Something that’s enjoyed by one couple might be punishable by death (or castration) in another relationship. There are minor offenses and crimes that can tear societies apart. Adding children means more rules and regulations… Read More »

Park Life

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom I like to think of myself as a social person. I have no problem chatting with strangers at a party. Stick me at the wedding table with the randoms and I’ll be busting a move to Beyonce with my new friends before the bouquet toss. But talking… Read More »

George Pettit: An Open Letter To Young Fathers

by

Megan Pettit‘s other half fills in this week Look, I’m hardly Bill Cosby. I’m a young dad who is largely figuring this whole thing out as he goes along. So now that I have provided my disclaimer I will offer what little advice I have. Don’t panic. That’s not to say a little fear isn’t… Read More »

Breast Is Best, Even When It Sucks

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom Cloth or disposable diapers? It didn’t really matter to me. One hundred percent organic cotton onesies or hand-me-downs?  As long as my baby was comfortable, he wore whatever was clean. I didn’t have much of an opinion when it came down to baby supplies or child rearing,… Read More »

My Child Is An @#%$&^#%

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom I might take some flak for saying this but here it goes: toddlers are assholes. They are demanding, volatile, moody, selfish assholes. Don’t get me wrong, I love my 19-month-old son, but if he was a friend I would avoid his calls. Most of the time Jr.… Read More »

The Not-So-Great Outdoors

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom The long weekend was ideal to head to the cottage for the first time this year. The weather was perfect, the traffic wasn’t bad and I even got out of school early on Thursday. Yup, just kicking back by the lake with some BBQ, drinks and a… Read More »

A Day At the Zoo

by

Megan Pettit shares stories from a new mom I played hookie from school and went to the zoo with George and Junior. We figured Owen would get a kick out of seeing the animals since he loves our cats so much. His first word was ‘cat’ after all..  Luckily for the animals, they would be… Read More »
