Brandon was golfing, no one was available for a play date and my parents have my kids enough, which left me alone with the threenagers all day. I tried to think of things we could do, none of which actually sounded fun. We played trucks, read books, played outside and walked to Dunkin’ for donuts … Continue reading YOLO
How has it been over a year since I've been to this blog? I've tried to keep up with my writing with Twiniversity.com but even over there, I'm doing a poor job of staying on top of it. A goal for 2019 is to write, even if it's terrible, a few times per month. As … Continue reading It’s been real, 2018
Is anyone else around here in too many Facebook Mommy groups? I mainly use them as a form of pure entertainment because some of those ladies sure do love to play the 'I'm right, you're wrong' game with anyone who does things a little bit differently than they do #sanctimommiesunite. It typically turns into a … Continue reading Spoiler Alert.
This morning, we ended up at the park, mainly to waste time because it's the only place the boys are happy. As long as those little dudes are outside, we typically avoid major meltdowns which in turn, saves my sanity. So while my house is literally disgusting and I'm getting absolutely nothing done on the … Continue reading Reality of Motherhood

Ladies WITH … Continue reading Survey Questions
"Kayla, he's turning blue" Words no mom is really pumped about hearing.. We had just had the BEST day at the aquarium a few weeks ago and we were stopping at Grammys for Sunday dinner. It was one of those days where I was actually REALLY enjoying my kids so I should have known something … Continue reading Mom life is the hardest life
"They fit!" I screamed as I buttoned pre-pregnancy jorts (jean shorts). Last time I put these on, they sat loosely on my hips, almost looking baggy. I paired them with a tightly fitted tank top so the entire outfit showed off a pair of legs and arms (and a back!) that I had spent a … Continue reading Mom Bod Win.
14 months and 2+ weeks. That's how old the boys are and I had to actually look at a calendar and do math to figure it out. That's a big change from this time last year when I knew how long they'd been here down to the hour, pretty much. Then, I was counting the … Continue reading what a difference.
Being a mom (or dad) is no joke. Behind the pictures of the smiling kids, the fun family adventures and videos of baby giggles is a mom or dad on the brink of losing their shit, desperate to capture ONE shining moment from within their messy, tantrum and stinky diaper filled life. Maybe that seems … Continue reading Parental Paradox
I've been meaning to write this story down for a long time because I'm finding if I don't write it, I remember it much differently than it actually happened. I'm over here like 'when can we have another baby?' because although I remember pregnancy being a bitch and those first 4 months being hell, I … Continue reading 1 year down (almost).
