Another {real} Love Letter

My dearest #3, In just a few short days you will be turning five.  This year, your birthday is hitting me hard.  Harder than any other birthday, any other year.  I am not sure why. I don't know where your infant or toddler years went.  I remember telling myself to be present with your tiny… Continue reading Another {real} Love Letter

Status: Stalker

It doesn't take much for me to get excited.  It is about as easy as getting water out of a fountain. A water fountain, that is. "Is there another kind of fountain?" you ask. Um, yes... chocolate.  Chocolate fountain.  It is delicious and my mind always goes to chocolate.  But, I digress.  Back to excitement.… Continue reading Status: Stalker

Baby Registry Rip-offs

There have been quite a few changes to baby items since I had my first nearly a decade ago.  During that time, several gimmicks have hit the market.  I have been conned into believing I needed some of the most overrated items.  So, what is a seasoned momma to do when she realizes she has… Continue reading Baby Registry Rip-offs

Promiscuous Promises

I have inevitably become the mother I swore I never would.  Feel free to gasp appallingly here, I know I did. I am acutely aware of the fact that time passes and all too quickly a moment becomes a memory.  As a result, I am that person who is overly obsessed with the camera; an… Continue reading Promiscuous Promises

Taketh and Giveth

Lawd or Lawd, today was a day.  I wish I could say it was an unusual day, but then I would be a liar.  While the events of our days vary from time to time, the way they go down is essentially unchanged. For starters, the kids fought.  Shocking.  Over everything and anything.  Most notably… Continue reading Taketh and Giveth

It Happens

My oldest daughter recently had a birthday.  And by recently I mean yesterday. Birthdays are pretty low key around here, but I do strive to make them memorable.   We aren't big on loud celebrations; just an understated, albeit constant, acknowledgement of their birth.  It usually includes our birthday banner, donuts for breakfast with a… Continue reading It Happens

{De}stressed

I don't know about you, but there are some days where I just don't think I can make it through the day. Ever since Daylight Savings came to an end, I have been struggling.  Remind me why Daylight Savings is still a thing.  You would think that one hour would not impact your child or children's sleeping… Continue reading {De}stressed

Zootopia: A Cinematic Gem

As I mentioned here, finding a family movie can be challenging.  Ratings are helpful, but in my book, not always accurate.  I don't know about you, but some of these flicks teach a lesson that I am not excited for my children to learn. For instance Beauty and the Beast. As a child, I loved Belle's… Continue reading Zootopia: A Cinematic Gem

Check It

I am pretty sure that my children believe me to be a "maid to order" service.  Someone who crafts individualized daily meal plans that allows food to magically appear on their plates; the paranormal occurrence of clean clothes turning up  in their dressers.  I am confident that they believe my sole purpose in life is… Continue reading Check It
