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 […]

Dinner Date with My Dude: And Other Adventures from a Special Day with Only One of My Rugrats

Today my husband and I did something that we haven’t done before – we each took one rugrat for a special one-on-one day. We split the kids up a lot on weekends (special mommy or daddy time for each of them). But we’ve never split […]

Picky Eating 101

Hello, friends! I’ve had some website drama (website upgrade complications), but I’m back finally. I hope you like the site’s new makeover. Please send me a message if you’re getting an error message when clicking on my link in Instagram. Much appreciated! Tonight’s topic is […]

Unconventional Sibling Bonding

Unconventional Sibling Bonding

Monday is over… hooray! We’re coming off of a very busy weekend, followed by a very busy Monday. The rugrats passed out hard tonight, which I’m about to do myself after four hours of work. As my mom has always said: My Job is Never Done. […]

Hard Work Pays Off!

Hard Work Pays Off!

Today has been a rough day for this mama. We had to have our car serviced, so we were stuck at home all day. I find that if we don’t get out in the morning, my entire day falls into the exhaustion black hole. So […]

World’s Tiniest Violin

World’s Tiniest Violin

Parenthood is essentially an exercise in determining how much grief you can take. My almost-four-year-old is all about testing boundaries. I suppose I’ll be enjoying this peachy behavior for the next 15 or so years. My son is no better, but in the climbing furniture […]
