why the vigorous suck?

When our son was born, the nurse who evaluated him declared that in addition to having ten fingers and ten toes, he was the possessor of a vigorous suck.  I’m not sure what that portends for his future, but it sounds rather authoritative.  We always thought that “vigorous suck” would be a fabulous name for a rock band, but as I am no singer (and not even a tambourine player for that matter), it was time to employ the name elsewhere.

Probably 90% of my time is sucked away by my two children.  This blog is my last ditch effort to reassert myself as I feel myself breaking off from the moorings.



  1. Cool blog! We have two kids and my husband is a musician– I totally agree that “vigorous suck” would rock as a band name!

    Thanks for stopping by and for the validation on the name front!
