The Wee One is currently cutting his 7th tooth (yes! 7th!) on the bottom left side.  It’s coming in slowly just like its previous buddies but it seems like bottom teeth don’t hurt as much as top teeth being that he hasn’t been super fussy lately. This photo is a few weeks old from before number 7 started to peek its way through.  It’s a good close-up shot of all his pearly whites. Please excuse the awkward angle. So I’ve known we should start brushing The Wee One’s teeth for a while Read more […]

How To Achieve Blogger Fame

Posted by & filed under All About Me, Blogging, Humor, The Dramatic Arts.

I’ve been thinking a lot about the world of blogging lately, and I’ve been doing a bit of soul-searching in regards to my goals with Drama Happens.  Recently I’ve been reading blog posts about how blogging might be a dying trend.  WHAT??? This hypothesis is depressing but also valid in a world of Twitter, Snapchat, and Instagram. Short snippets and photos seem to be the easier and preferred form of communication these days, and it’s evident that attention spans are shortening.  Are people still Read more […]

The Wee One: Eight Months

WELP, my kid is now 8 months old and that’s terrible because 8 months is SO MUCH older than 6 or 7 months.  The Mother agrees with me.  8 months is old.  My baby is getting so big, like seriously, he’s heavy!  His personality is also blooming, he’s determined, he’s curious, he’s bubbly, and he’s a charmer.  We can’t go anywhere without him smiling at strangers and making them pause to say hello.  His friendliness forces me out of my comfort zone many times to have conversations with people Read more […]

Not This Again

Posted by & filed under All About Me, baby updates, Motherhood, Not the Norm, The Wee One.

ARGH!!!!!!!  We have thrush again.  If you have no idea why I’m so upset by this then perhaps you are new here (so welcome!) or maybe you just missed those posts where I shared our journey with thrush that started when The Wee One was a newborn. (Catch up by reading THIS about the beginning, THIS for the most recent update or THIS for something humorous.) Yes, I’m in pain again.  Nursing hurts but it’s not like before, it’s more of a manageable nuisance that makes me wince and tense up Read more […]

Our First Outdoor Weekend of the Year

Oh my gosh, it was SO NICE out this past weekend.  Nice enough that we spent two afternoons in a row in our backyard.  Man, I love our backyard.  Maybe that’s because I don’t handle the maintenance of it like The Scottish does, hehe, love you hunny! 🙂 It felt like such a luxury to be able to sit outside but in a private-ish setting.  It felt even more amazing to be outside without being all bundled up.  The Wee One still needed a few layers but it was a much needed change from all the clunky Read more […]

Happy Friday folks! I’ve been thinking a lot about the things I do in the morning and at night and I was wondering, What is something in your morning or nighttime routine that make your life easier or helps you wake up/sleep better? In the Scottish household our average wake-up time is between 6 AM and 7 AM, aka “The Wee One alarm” because he tells us when it’s time to get up. Some days we get to sleep until The Scottish’s work alarm goes off at 6:45 AM and those days are niiiice.  (Though, Read more […]

It’s Not That Noticeable

This post has taken a while for me to sit down and write.  For some reason I’m embarrassed about both the situation and my response to the situation, and I don’t embarrass easily.  I’m also worried what others may think, which is puzzling because most of the time I don’t care what people think of my posts.  Drama Happens is a place for my thoughts, my life, and my stories.  Yet, this one made me pause. Luckily, I don’t let fear dictate my life, so here goes… The Wee One has a flat spot Read more […]

It was exactly two years ago today on March 9th, 2013 that The Scottish and I were married. I still look back fondly on that day as one of the best in my life.  Two years later we are becoming less like newly weds and more like a seasoned married couple.  Our life is finally a bit predictable and full of family, friends, downtime, and routine.  We both love it. As is our tradition, we celebrated by getting away for a night at a nearby hotel.  Last year at last we attempted a staycation Read more […]

“Why is my baby crying?”

march 3rd march 3rd

I ask myself this question a lot lately, although it’s usually in a comical fashion, while shaking my head in dismay.  🙂 Is he really crying because I left the room??  Is he crying because I took his toy away to clean apple purée off it??  Is he crying because he doesn’t want a diaper change… again!?!?  ARGH.  Is this kid for real right now? We’ve entered a new zone.  The Wee One has become clingy and whiny and not just with me!  It happens with The Scottish as well, and when Grandpa Read more […]

Technically, The Scottish doesn’t turn 31 until Wednesday but we celebrated his birthday this past weekend.  If you follow me on Instagram, you know The Scottish and I recently got new and matching cell phones!  He has needed a new phone FOREVER and I told him we’d get him one for his birthday.  Then about two days before we were going to go shopping my on/off button broke and I dropped my cell phone in the toilet.  I swear these are unrelated incidents!!  I did not break my phone… although Read more […]
