Ode To Motherhood

Welcome to Motherhood...





Yep, this is my life now.

They say that you forget all the bad things about being pregnant once you hold your little one for the first time. I can tell you that is false. I did melt and I did get emotional, but I haven't forgotten all the bad pregnancy stuff. Nope, not this girl.

Was my little princess worth it?

You bet she was. Every inch of her.

And so has begun my life of sleepless nights and confused fussy baby moments. I am slowly learning that sometimes all she wants is cuddles and reassurance. For the longest time I never wanted kids. Then, I met the right guy and we got married. He has changed my life in so many ways and now we're parents. I still can't believe it when I look at her.

I'm a mom.

He's a dad.

She's ours.

Pregnancy sucked. She was worth it a hundred times over. Being a new mom is even harder than carrying her for nine months. Here are some things my newborn has taught me:

1. Always change diapers with your mouth closed. Yes, even if you have a girl.

2. It is possible to eat and poop at the same time. My little one is a master!

3. Burping really means projectile vomit. Follow step one and keep your mouth closed.

4. Spit up in your hair and on your clothes is your new norm.

5. What is a hot meal?

6. What is a shower?

7. Sleep when they sleep.

8. There are many shades of poop.

9. Diapers do fail...

10. It is possible to sleep standing up.

Let's get real, being a new parent is hard!

Help, My Cat is Pooping Outside the Litter Box!

This is Princess Leia. Lately, little miss Leia has had a bit of an issue. She's been pooping outside of the litter boxes. See? Even a cat behaviorist can have cats with issues. Luckily, Leia's problem was quickly and easily diagnosed. My Bengal, Loki, had been bullying her away from the litter boxes. We set up a nice little box for her in a quiet area of the house and she hasn't had any issues since. I really think she is enjoying the fact she gets her own powder room. But, there can be many reasons a kitty starts this type of behavior so I am going to go over the most common ones below.

Here are some of the basic reasons:

1. A recent litter brand change.
Cats are huge creatures of habit and often finicky when it comes to their poop dirt. If you recently changed their litter try going back to the old stuff.   2. The litter isn't deep enough.
Some cats love a lot of litter and are big diggers. If they don't have enough litter (an amount to their liking, not yours) k…

Why Does My Cat Hate My Significant Other?

If you're reading this then I am guessing you've come here because you have a very mad kitty. I am also going to guess said kitty doesn't like your significant other. Don't worry, it happens. Cats aren't like dogs. You can't just tempt them with a little piece of steak and throw a tennis ball to become friends. If you try that your cat is just going to give you the above look and walk away hell bent on destroying your new relationship. Never underestimate kitty, they're smarter than we think.

You might even have adopted a new cat that took to you easily, but just down right dislikes the other person in your life. That's okay. There's something about an immediate bond with a cat. If you get that special moment you're lucky. If your partner does not, maybe some of the following tips can help.

1. Feeding Time:
If you're the only one feeding kitty, start letting your partner prepare the cat's food and actually feed the meal. Kitty might not …
