Thankful Thursday: No Nap? No Problem!

I’m back with my second installment of Thankful Thursday! We (barely) survived our three-week break between school and camp. We do NOT do well without structure in this house. I’ve definitely routinized my children. I’m still on the fence as to whether that’s good or […]

Weekend Update: Just Me, Myself, and I

Weekend Update: Just Me, Myself, and I

Happy Sunday, friends! This weekend, my family did something that we haven’t done before. My husband took the kids away, and I stayed home alone. Yes, alone. As an introverted only child, I had 30 years of solitude. Then I had kids. What an adjustment […]

Stage Five Clinger: I Need To Get Out More

Hey there, people! This weekend I went away for not even 48 hours, but it was the longest amount of time I have spent away from my kids. When I got back, this happened (see doodle). My kids are very attached to me. I frankly couldn’t expect […]

Wednesday Wisdom

Wednesday Wisdom

Happy, Wednesday, friends! I’m back after a little hiatus (you know, life…) with my next day-of-the-week-hashtag installment: Wednesday Wisdom (#wednesdaywisdom or #wisdomwednesday, depending on how you roll). Let’s call a spade a spade: I have no idea what I am doing approximately 90% of the time, […]

Sunday Funday: Read To Your Bunny

Sunday Funday: Read To Your Bunny

My next installment is up: Sunday Funday! Sunday Funday is not what it used to be pre-kid (like, not even a tad bit close). My days of sleeping in and watching too much Law & Order: SVU are long gone. Sunday is now full of early […]

Thankful Thursday: Gaining Some Perspective on a Bad Day

My second daily installment is here: Thankful Thursday! I thought I would start a series called Thankful Thursday because some days I just need a good old dose of perspective to get my head out of my rear end. What do I mean, you ask? Good […]
