Hell's Bells and Sassafras: sexism and parenting →
natasha2marie: judgernaut: Genni and I were talking about this the other day. Fathers are given so much more credit than mothers. I guess because fathers aren’t traditionally expected to have a heavy hand in raising the child? When we are out in public, Cody gets so much attention for wearing Poppy in the sling or… Just like going back to work after six weeks, everyone expects you to be...
Ready. Set. Go Make Babies
Got the email to book our flights for Friday into Laguardia. Then a train into Bridgeport CT and cross our fingers that the embryo transfer(s) goes well and takes. I’m trying not to get too excited. Wanting this for a very wonderful deserving couple is nerve racking and since the process isn’t perfect and Jen’s body could reject an embryo in her body that isn’t...
Waiting for New York
Tomorrow we should get the word that they are ready for us to book our flight to the big apple for the transfer of the embryo to Jen’s oven. Yay Surrogacy!

One last Sushibel post from me for the day
When Jason asked the other day about ‘what’s it like’ - everyone offered funny jokes and some really well spoken advice. Something though has been bouncing around in my head and I can’t help but say it. One of the things that changed for me in a big way is Fight or Flight. I gravitate towards conflict. I don’t invite it but I never back down from it. I will run not...
8 things I've done that you aint done
drove a train (haha default bitches) repo’d a Bentley, pulled up to a guy in a minivan and said, “excuse me do you have any Grey Poupon?” (he said “but of course” and handed me a packet then added “I’ve been waiting 10 years for somebody to ask me that”) stayed on the small island illitanuag of the seven hogs off the coast of Ireland where my...
My house is music

morrowplanet: Very likely the most amazing moment of my life was the first moment I caught a glimpse of my daughter’s head as she began to crown after a long, confusing, and frustrating labor. Let mama rest a little, baby girl, then get moving, but don’t tear ass. (See what I did there?) Same. Only when my daughter’s head began to crown I said, “oh look an ice cream...
I don't know how I got home
63 miles from KC to Topeka. I laughed from work, right into my garage. I had to pull over. Twice.
