Poison Control Hotline Albuquerque Moms Bldog

Poison Control Hotline

It happened.  We just got back from travelling and I was partly unpacked.  I was simultaneously fixing my hair, putting makeup on, and entertaining my 19 month old.  She sat on the counter and happily took everything out of the toiletries bag and then put it back in.  Out again, in again.  I knew the counter […]

Water Park: 411 on ABQ’s Hotel Cascada

Hotel Cascada boasts New Mexico’s one and only indoor water park. Until I had the opportunity to experience it with my family, it had always been surrounded by mystery amongst my mommy peers and I.

Mom-Dating: Is She Gonna Text Me?

Mom-Dating.  It’s kinda scary and makes me feel all inadequate and pathetic. If I’m not momming, usually I’m nose-deep in a book, or in a trance in front of a Netflix show.  It’s most often a show from the 90’s that either I was obsessed with in the 90’s, or missed the bus for and […]

“How do you do it?”  I’m sure we’ve all heard this question from time to time. Well, moms just do! Usually when asked, “how do you do it,” I give a smile and a friendly laugh and then walk away and continue on with my business.  I had never even thought of giving an actual answer, […]

Grown In the Heart, Not Under It: Adopted

So, I’ve known my whole life that I was adopted.  I was never sat down, as you see in Lifetime movies, and had a bomb dropped on me about being adopted.  I never looked at pictures of family and wondered if everyone was keeping a giant secret from me.  I was sat down, probably before […]

Vegetables for the Picky Palate

Vegetables used to scare me.  No wonder they scare my three year old.  I do not recall eating many vegetables when I was growing up, and usually if I did, I tried to mask them with a condiment of some sort.  Maybe my mom hid them in the middle of meals like lasagna.  They were […]
