Wife. Working Mama. Chief Diaper Changer. Lover of Rosè.
It’s like a right of passage these days to book your kids in their first round of lessons. I grew up taking dance lessons and playing softball, while Dan played baseball and football among other things. So these were obviously conversations as options for our kids once they reached the appropriate ages. Swim lessons were … Continue reading Swim School Dropout
I said “I do” to my other half almost five years ago. One of the perks to being married means I no longer have to swim in the dating pool. I was comically awful at it. I mean awful. Anyone play board games with their families? Mine does every Christmas. My dating life before Dan … Continue reading How to Date Your Husband
June. So somehow that happened. It’s almost been one full year with Everett here. Craziness. So far we’ve survived with two kids. That totes deserves a celebratory pat on the back. With Viv I threw I nice big party. Why, you may ask? I’ve been told she won’t remember. And let’s be real, she didn’t … Continue reading Hey June
When we first bought our townhouse, we only had one babe in tow. We had a budget and very specific neighborhoods in mind. This meant finding three bedrooms on the same floor probably wasn’t going to happen. I fell in love with our old townhouse when I walked in. I mean IN LOVE. It was … Continue reading Musings from the bedroom floor…
I really had the best intentions to keep this updated weekly and then monthly. Well, that’s turned comical, but let’s be honest me trying to juggle all things working mom out there is kind of comical, too. You can say I’m an overachiever. I even overachieve at failing spectacularly sometimes,too. Case in point with the … Continue reading The Best Intentions
I’m wiped. The holidays hit me like a freight train. And now it’s 2018. What!?! How did that happen? The last 6 weeks have been insane. Thanksgiving usually is the first step in the craziness of the holidays. If I’m being honest, it’s probably my favorite holiday. Sitting in a car for 6 plus hours … Continue reading Holiday hangover
I knew from a very young age that I wanted to be a mom. It wasn’t something I jumped into because I thought I should. There were many long discussions and lots of thought put into this step in my life. Meeting my husband, Dan, solidified my dream of becoming a mom. He was the … Continue reading #momsohard
Eff you Monday. I had every intention of taking today as a vacation day. You know the work kind of vacation. I have kids. That makes everything else a trip I need to go to work to recover from. So about that… Yeah, that vacation day didn’t happen. I had planned to not book appointments, … Continue reading Manic Monday
I could live off of wine and cheese. Charcuterie trays, creamy and crumbly cheese, topped of by a flight of bold, chewy red wine is what my dreams are made of. As a mom though, I will settle for a cheese stick and a can of rose. It’s totes the same. 8 years ago, I … Continue reading When you can’t cut the cheese.
Potty training is hell. Potty training a tiny diva terrorist is it own special kind of evil. About a month ago, I was boasting about my potty trained princess. Miss thing had fully moved to her big girl princess underwear (damn you Disney). She thought she was so cool to be wearing them. And, I mean, … Continue reading If you’re reading this, send wine.
