A place for stay at home moms to talk over coffee

My Favorite Book on Preemies August 15, 2009

When my girls were born, a good friend gave me a book that proved to be an invaluable resource. It was Preemies: The Essential Guide for Parents of Premature Babies. That book explained all the things to expect in the NICU and explained in plain English every thing that we encountered with our preemies.

If you are the parent of a preemie or know someone with a preemie, I highly recommend getting a copy of this book.

Why does it seem like everything happens at the same time? July 15, 2009

This is the week of Usborne Books and More’s annual convention. I am going – it is something I would not miss.

This is also the week we are closing on the sale of a townhouse we own in NC. The sale has been a pain in the behind and it really sneaked up on me. I have dropped the last of the details on my poor husband. The kids are with my parents for the week (complicating factor is driving 4 hours to drop them off and turn around to come home) and he thought he was going to get some time to do what he wanted to do. Sorry, Dear.

To throw even more chaos into the mix, we bid on a house in VA to replace the property in NC and negotiations are on going.

So, instead of enjoying the first night in the house without kids since becoming parents 8 years ago my husband and I are tying up loose ends before I get on an early flight.

My friend Ruth and I have often wondered when life will become “boring.” I suspect the answer is never and if it ever did, we would not know what to do with ourselves.

Welcome to Cafe Brigitte, where stay at home moms can kick back with a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) and talk about what is going on in their lives. I hope you will find fun and useful information here, as well as enjoy the company of a fellow, “regular” mom. I am looking forward to sharing with you what works for me as a mom and what doesn’t, what is going on in my life, and what is on my mind.
