Green thumbs. Some people have them. Some people don’t. I’m the some people that don’t. I was born into a family that had grandfathers on both sides that were known for their ability to grow ridiculously amazing gardens. Insane. All the tulips. All of them. My dad took his gardens up a notch. Plants, flowers, … Continue reading Digging in the Dirt
Oh how my drinks of choice have changed with age. Or by digestion issues. As much as this much mama would love to be practicing my favorite S in wine tasting, my stomach has had other plans these days. Some days my stomach turns its nose up at pretty much all food. Yikes. While that … Continue reading Sippin on Protein and Soy
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
June. So somehow that happened. It’s almost been one full year with Eman here. Craziness. So far we’ve survived with two kids. That totes deserves a celebratory pat on the back. With V 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’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
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.
Parenting is a tricky beast. It has this nifty little trick where it makes you think you’ve got it all figured out. And then surprise! Your sweet little children hit a new mastery level in manipulation. Last week you were skilled at getting them to follow directions, and suddenly this week your bribing them with … Continue reading Threenager
📷: A Little Photo Studio Sometimes, I could swear that I’m living in a dream. I look at my kids and can’t believe they really are mine. For real. They both spent months growing in my belly, and I worked crazy hard to push those big-headed babes into this world. So many days though, it still … Continue reading Pinch me.
Raising kids is hard, yo. Small electronics come with manuals. New jobs come with manuals. Kids, surprisingly, don’t. Wait, what? I’ve successfully adulted for awhile now. I earned a driver’s license, graduated college, happily enjoyed my career, and married the man of my dreams (clichè, I know and I don’t care). I was ready. Kids … Continue reading Miss Sassy Pants
