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!

It’s been … Continue reading 5 Things Making Me A Better Mom Today (just for today)
I have never considered myself superstitious. I never wore the same tshirts after my football teams won or, I guess I should say, burned the shirts I wore when my teams lost (#buffalobillsproblems). I never did the same exact thing before every swim meet and don't have any lucky item to bring me good days. … Continue reading No More Baths Allowed
"I can't believe you're a mom", I hear people say as they stare at the smiling monsters that I grew with my own body. They typically don't say it in the way you may be thinking; the type of way that with hearts in their eyes, they say it because they are in shock and … Continue reading “I can’t believe you’re a mom”(dude, I know)
