"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).
I'm BACK! I honestly don't even know where this month went. Life is FLYING by and I can't seem to get it to slow down. I started an Etsy shop - be sure to check it out (click here). Favorite it, like it on Facebook, share it everywhere and let me know what I can make … Continue reading Just when you thought I was gone
Happy New Year! It's a new year but the same ol' tired me over here. To say life has been busy would be an understatement. I'm notorious for taking on more than I can safely handle and once again, I found myself drowning a little bit. I ended up in the ER with a migraine … Continue reading Happy 2017!
There is no doubt that twins are the best but there is also no doubt that they are (more than) double the amount of work. The energy a new twin parent would normally use to politely smile at silly comments is gone and not returning until those babies are sleeping. So, I’m going to help … Continue reading 11 Things You Should Reconsider Saying To A Twin Mom (or any mom at all) and What To Do Instead
People often ask me how I stay so fit when I have such a busy life. The answer is all organic everything and working out 5-6x/week. Just kidding, people ask me when I’m due and if it’s a boy or a girl. It takes them a second to realize what an ass they are when … Continue reading Hot Mess Cooking
It’s hard to believe that it’s almost been 8 months since my little angels made their grand entrance into this world. To say that it’s been a dramatically life-changing event would still be an understatement. Waking up rested, late nights with friends and free time are all mostly a thing of the past. It’s been … Continue reading 5 Things Making Me A Better Mom Today (just for today)
