Loss

August 14, 2014

Ok, so I guess the Universe is never really done kicking anyone in the pants. A few days ago I found out a dear former professor and idol passed away from cancer. I hadn't spoken with her in a couple of years but I still feel her loss keenly. Dr. Ala…

Round Like Mom

January 7, 2014

It's been six years now since I got into fat acceptance and health at every size. Hard to believe but it's the truth.  When I got into this my son was only a year and a half; now he's a giant seven year old and, while sometimes he still thinks out lo…

Joy in Play

November 4, 2013

Sunday afternoon I had the pleasure of watching my neice for a little while. A big part of why I love being home is spending time with her and my other family members that I've missed so much the last couple of years. She and Gabe are pretty close in…

Fat Shamed by a 7 Yr Old

June 14, 2013

Kids are weird; they're trying so hard to figure out how to be themselves, and behave properly, and learn all this stuff about what it means to be a person and an adult and all the rest that I'm surprised their heads don't explode. I have two of them…

Be Brave

March 15, 2013

Wednesday night Gabe and I were trying to figure out what to play together in that gap between dinner and bedtime; he suggested Pokemon (we role-play in the Pokemon world) but I countered with Beyblades (he got a few, and a dome, for Christmas). He c…

Kitchen Helper

January 7, 2013

Over the past couple of months I came to the realization that I really don't like to cook. It's just another chore, another thing that needs doing every day, and with our limited budget and my limited store of mental recipes, it gets old. Ryan hates …

Today Is A Birthday

September 28, 2011

Today is Gabe's 5th birthday. It's been a big year for him; first year of school, first bike, first fireworks he'll remember and first fishing trip. He saw his first black bear and wrote his name this past year. We packed him up and moved him half wa…

August 23, 2011

The post for Wednesday was supposed to be one highlighting a BBC news article linking birthweight to lifelong health problems but I'm ranting instead. The BBC article will go up Thursday here and at Fierce Fatties and Carolyn is posting Friday.
