Cooking Without a Kitchen

Cooking Without a Kitchen

Although “cooking without a kitchen” might conjure up mental images of camping and open fire cooking, our situation is actually a little more unique than that. My husband, two sons, and I live with my husband’s grandmother in what is basically a glorified bonus room.  The family that lived here before his renovated the bonus … Continue reading

Mawmaw on my Mind

Mawmaw on my Mind

Yesterday, we were supposed to go out to dinner with my mom’s mother (my Mawmaw, the one from 85 Years Young) and my mom’s brother, who is back stateside from doing civilian contracting in Kuwait.  However, Mawmaw got sick for a few days straight, so we wound up getting the family together in the hospital … Continue reading

Noah’s Ark & Absenteeism

Noah’s Ark & Absenteeism

I’ve been conspicuously absent for the last week!  I missed the Weekend Rewind for the first time (it’s Wednesday now, so I suppose there’s not really any point in doing it by now), though not for lack of things to write about.  We had another good weekend – it was our third weekend in a … Continue reading

Thank You!

Thank You!

My blog is one month old today.  Despite the fact that I’ve been a blogger off-and-on since 2002 (that’s the eighth grade, y’all!) this is the most successful blog I’ve ever had. Today, on the one month birthday of The Constant Diaperer, you guys broke the page view record (again) at 51 hits in a … Continue reading

Introducing: Stewshi

Introducing: Stewshi

Big Daddy does, in fact, have a name.  I wasn’t going to share it (you know, privacy concerns and all) but since I have started sharing the kids’ names anyway … well, my husband’s name is Stew.  This is important to note, because since he had a sushi lesson at our favorite restaurant the other … Continue reading

Let Them Eat Cake

Let Them Eat Cake

With the American Academy of Pediatrics changing their recommendations what seems like every other day, I really wasn’t sure when to introduce solid foods to Jackson.  When Avery was a baby, the recommendation was solidly four months.  By the time Avery was four months old, we were already done breastfeeding for good.  We had struggled … Continue reading

The Case for Going Paperless

The Case for Going Paperless

As I shared in my first cloth diaper review, I am not very green.  I cloth diaper because it is cheap.  I breastfeed because it’s free.  I wash all my clothes (except diapers) in cold water because it saves on the electricity bill–same with the CFL bulbs we have in every fixture.  I buy consignment … Continue reading

Clean Sweep

Clean Sweep

I always try to clean the house right before we leave, especially if it’s for more than the day.  But, we had to housesit for my dad with little notice, so I had to leave the house as-is and let the junk pile up double when we got home. We got home today, and the … Continue reading

Family in (Laundry) Crisis

Family in (Laundry) Crisis

We’ve got a bit of a “situation” going on at the house right now.  Hubby and I (and our two boys) rent the top floor of Big Daddy’s grandmother’s house.  This usually works out well for us – yes, we do pay rent, but it is affordable – but not always.  We generally keep to … Continue reading

It’s Spreading!

As you all know, my poor Little A has already been confirmed with strep a couple days ago. When he was at the doctor, he had a fine rash (lots of teeny red dots) all over his torso and sort of starting onto his cheeks and legs. The doctor saw this and knew right away … Continue reading
