My 3yo and her many, MANY questions about her baby brother.

I have a 3 year old named Lexi who became a new big sister 7 months ago.  In preparation to having the new baby, we bought books about becoming a big sister and tried to tell her how life was going to change.  We had no idea how many questions were going to follow though. […]

When a toddler waves at you, dammit, you wave back

I am curious, sir, who sat there mean-muggin’ when my precious, innocent little child waved at you with his tiny little hands, smiling with his tiny little toothy grin – who hurt you?  Was your favorite family pet murdered by a gang of angry toddlers, cranky from teething and a bad nap? Maybe one unfiltered […]

Why Having Friend Who Also Has a Newborn is Priceless.

It’s 2am.  Your baby for some reason won’t sleep and you’re going out of your mind.  Your husband is asleep and you don’t want to wake him but you really need to vent.   “Who ya gonna call?” Yep, you’re lucky enough to have a friend who just recently had a kid too.  And you […]

Dear picture-perfect Insta moms, how do you do it?

As a stay-at-home mom, I admittedly prioritize convenience and little to no mess above all else. After all, I don’t get to leave my home for 9 hours a day, leaving the mess behind to take care of later. It sits, reminding me of what I’ve done. Like a semi-ironic Pokémon tattoo that seemed like […]

Can a 3yo be in charge of nighttime feedings for a newborn? Asking for a friend…

“Mommy, can I hold the new baby?” You and your husband’s eyes meet as you both scramble to find the right answer to tell her. What an amazing picture it would be. Your oldest holding your youngest. Aww. But then you flashback to the time you remember her punishing her baby doll for not sharing […]

Summer activities for my fellow summer-haters

It’s summer, it’s hotter than balls, and it’s hard for me not to feel guilty keeping the kids locked up in the house with A/C all day.  But when you start sweating like a sinner in church from the moment you step foot out the door, you start wondering if you’re getting enough Vitamin D […]

Sick Kids…

There’s not many things worse than a sick kid.  Yes, of course, it makes you feel bad to know they’re sick and you can’t make them understand it’s only temporary.  But besides the obvious feelings of sympathy for your little ones, let’s talk about the absolute nightmare you’re going through. Time to call the CDC. […]

How I knew I was meant to be a mother

I have an admiration for anyone who has the confidence to boldly state “I always knew I was meant to be a ________.”  Fill in the blank. Teacher. Lounge singer. Small-time criminal. Big-time lawyer. To have a sense of destiny in what you do, what you call yourself. More often than not, I feel like […]

When Your Kid Uses Your Own Words Against You

As a mother, you’re supposed to bestow wisdom on our children to help them learn the ways of the world.  “Say thank you”, “don’t say crap”, “you’re freaking out and need to calm down”, etc.  All teachings that were passed down from your parents.  So you’ve been where your kids are and had to hear […]

Car seat power naps are the freakin’ worst

Imagine you are driving home after running some quick errands with your toddler – nothing out of the ordinary, just a stop to drop off some things at Goodwill and pick up some groceries.  Sure, he may have had a few moments in the store but nothing you couldn’t manage. Nothing to indicate what is […]
