A guest post from my sister, Alotta Fagina: Things I never thought I would say or do when I became a parent.

*I’ve had a rough week and have been throwing myself a pity party again. Having a miscarriage and dealing with the emotions of it have been really difficult for me. More than I ever thought.

I’ve been throwing myself into our new group site, Motherhood Uncovered, because if I’m alone with my thoughts for even a few minutes, I can’t take it. I call MU “our” new site because not only is it for the writers, it’s for you too and we will officially be running on Monday. I will do a post on both sites so I can introduce you to everyone.

I will also go back to writing more here. I just needed some time to try and heal from the loss although I know I have a long way to go. Thank you everyone, including all of the amazing guest bloggers, for the support you’ve given me through all of this. xoxo


If you’re a regular reader, you may have read the post I wrote about how my in-laws invited themselves to my younger sister’s wedding. Before I even wrote it, I asked my sister if it was okay and she said of course. When I asked her what alias she wants me to use for her, she said Alotta Fagina. You totally can’t tell we’re related can you? heh!

We were talking a few weeks ago about things we never thought we would say when we became parents. A few of mine were having to tell the hummingbird to stop eating the coffee table. Another one just last week was asking her to stop using our cat, Maisy, as a drum.

My sister has some great ones and since she lives in the stone age and doesn’t have a computer, I told her to write down some of the things she never thought she would have to say and mail it to me. My sis, Alotta Fagina, has a 5-year-old daughter, R, and a 3-year-old son, A.


    • Is that pee in my shoe?!
    • It’s okay, just throw up in my hands.
    • R walked in on me and the hubby having sex. She slammed the door and took off running yelling “A, mommy is beating up daddy”.
    • You know you’re tired when you walked both of your children into two separate schools and never realized your shirt had been inside out.
    • A, don’t pee on the sidewalk. Go over to the bush.
    • Did you really just pee in the trash can?
    • Alotta: Why do have chocolate on your hands? A: I didn’t eat chocolate. Alotta: Well, honey, there’s brown stuff on your hands. A: I don’t know. Alotta: Come here. Let me….oh my God! Go wash your hands!
    • Mommy, I need to blow my nose. Baby, I don’t have a tissue. But it’s running down my lip. My God, here use my sleeve.
    • Okay, who put the diaper in the washer?
    • I’m still lactating when in the bath R saw me squeezing it out. She said “what’s that?” I told her it was milk. You used to drink it as a baby. From the hall A piped up and asked “Do you have chocolate milk?”


Inquiring minds want to know. What are some of the things you never thought you would say or do once you became a parent?

    That’s Alotta peeing!! (and the odd pooing). My baby wipes his runny nose on my shoulder! Very funny post 🙂

    I think the most unlikely thing to come out of my mouth so far has to be:

    “No playing with medival weaponry in the house”

    My favorite: Jack quit licking the pickles!

    (Note – said to our golden retriever puppy who wouldn’t stay out of the refrigerator when we opened the door. Funniest thing said in our house. Ever.)

    Also: How did the poop get on the OUTSIDE of the toilet? (last week with teenagers)

    LMAO – I always treat anything of a dark brown colour suspiciously!
