Failing at Potty Learning

Megan Spreer

Remember [that post][1] I wrote a few weeks back in which I polled people on the most annoying things parents post on Facebook? One of responses was potty-training posts. Well guess what? I am one of those people. You know why? Because potty learning (that is the now the preferred ...

Twos are More than Terrible

Megan Spreer

http://wellcommons.com/users/photos/2014/jan/22/267831/ Technically, these are the Terrible Two-and-a-halfs. We got a six-month grace period before the hurricane hit our house. And thank the sweet Baby Jesus for that. The twos are no joke. My once always sweet little blonde-haired, blue-eyed girl has the ability to mimic Linda Blair in The Exorcist ...

But I'm not Depressed

Megan Spreer

I have often been asked the same few questions since I gave birth to HJ: Are you experiencing prolonged sadness? Are you having unsafe thoughts? Do you feel sad more than you are happy? As an educated person and as someone who read my copy of “What to Expect when ...

Doctor's Visit Anxiety

Megan Spreer

I have anxiety about taking my kids to the doctor. I’m not talking well child visits. I’m talking about the visits for when they are actually sick. It sounds crazy, right? I mean, what is the doctor for other than making your children better when they’re sick? Yeah. I get ...

Hilarious Santa Photos: The Real Christmas Magic

Megan Spreer

I love the holiday season. I love everything about it. Twinkling lights, Christmas music, cookies, tinsel, egg nog — I literally and figuratively eat it all up. So OF COURSE I take my children for an annual photo with Santa. Duh. We get dressed up, I talk it up like ...

Reasons I love having babies during the holidays

Megan Spreer

Despite what I said about carting around small people during the holidays in my [previous post][1], I do recognize just how good we have it in many ways. These first few Christmases with our still new-ish family are ones that I’m sure I’ll miss and fondly look back on when ...

The Elf is Here

Megan Spreer

Call me a giant hypocrite. I went out and paid money for the very thing I [talked smack][1] on just a few months earlier. I know. I'm shaking my head at myself. I promise that I had two very good reasons for this though. 1. I get caught up in ...

Holiday Planning with Small People

Megan Spreer

Ah. It’s here. The beginning of the craziest time of the year. Without taking a formal poll, I’m just going to assume that the holidays are pretty nuts for almost everyone. Between cooking, driving, flying, cleaning, wrapping, setting up, putting away, decorating, shopping and everything else you’re required to do ...

5 Facebook Updates That Parents Should Stop Posting

Megan Spreer

“Facebook is the worst thing that has ever happened.” Those were the words out of my husband’s mouth this week. As much as it pains me to say it, he’s got a point. Facebook is the devil. It has given a megaphone to people who seem to have been born ...

The Mommy Wars

Megan Spreer

I’m tapping out. I’m crying “Uncle”. I’m forfeiting. I am done and over the Mommy Wars. It seems a new battle breaks out over a new topic each day. And I’m throwing in the towel. I got sucked in early as I read my pro-breastfeeding books and made my own ...
