There was an explosion at our house this weekend.
Not the kind that requires a hosing off in the bathtub.
This one brought tears of joy to my eyes. Blinding, beautiful tears of joy.
My baby. My sweet, severely speech-delayed X. Has decided to talk.
To really talk.

And I’m over at Sluiter Nation today to tell you all about what got it rolling. So please come by – it’s VERY happy times at the Pants House!

Why aren’t I helping him?

I put on my mommypants a little bit late.
And I don’t mean late as in I was 35 when I had my first child…even though I was what they call a ‘borderline geriatric pregnancy.” So maybe this post should be called my Depends Moment. But I digress. (more…)
