It is a question that I ask myself multiple times a day, and even more so on Mondays. Most evenings, I go to bed at 8:45 PM, so in reality, I should be well rested. Hell, I should be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, but instead, I feel like I am dragging my body around like it… Continue reading Why am I so tired?
Wait, what? I know what you are thinking. I am notoriously wrong when I try to use classic sayings in my every day vocabulary, but this time, it was intentional. I’ve decided to venture into the world of doing product reviews. Don’t worry, I’m not a sell-out. I just think it is important for parents… Continue reading Pip, Pip, Hooray?
That I am kind of a mess. When most people hear that I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, they assume that I suffer from the type that they’ve seen portrayed in movies or on television shows.

What do moms really want for Mother’s day? It is an interesting question and I’ve seen a lot of posts about it this week on social media.

At the time, I thought it was likely because Power Wheels were super expensive, and having twins and a younger child was probably draining their bank accounts at lightening speed. However,… Continue reading Toddlers Shouldn’t Drive
Parenthood continues to surprise me with its sweet, sweet, irony. There are times when I feel like I am on a merry-go-round. The ride starts with so much anticipation and excitement, only to be met with feelings of monotony (and sometimes nausea) after going round and round for a while, to finally have it end… Continue reading Isn’t it ironic?
The time spent at daycare is usually a blur. The only objective is to get your kids to their classrooms with all of their gear and get out as soon as possible. In reality though, I’m never quick, and my kids never have all of their gear. I end up watching other parents, as they… Continue reading The 5 Types of Parents You Meet at Daycare
Two years ago, as we approached Riley’s first birthday, I wrote a blog post featuring the top 20 things I hoped for her to experience in life. I still want all of those things for her, and many more. That being said, as we approach her third birthday, and the end of two years of pure… Continue reading To My Almost Three-Year Old
If you are getting ready for your first family vacation, I want you to prepare yourself. Gone are the days of Bloody Mary’s at the airport, taking a snooze on the plane, while dreaming of the fruity drinks, renting a fun car for the week, sleeping in, sunbathing, and anything else you have always associated… Continue reading Vacationing with Small Children
There is no doubt in my mind that being a stay at home mom is probably one of the hardest jobs out there. I could probably do it, but I don’t think I would do it well. To be honest, I’d most likely never make it out of yoga pants (while not doing any yoga),… Continue reading Balancing Act
