The Epic Search For Your Child’s Favorite

It’s approaching your baby’s bedtime. Before the confetti drops and you and your husband kick back to watch one of the many shows you’re probably seasons behind on, you need to get that kid to sleep. So Operation Subdue The Spawn commences. You get him fed, changed and dress him in his favorite fuzzy PJs. […]

Why is it so hard to keep clothes on my kid?

I’ve entered a new era with my 3 year old daughter. She thinks running around naked is hysterical. No, not just at home. At dance, during her Little Gym class and sometimes at other people’s homes. I’ve been successful thus far at keeping her clothed at most other public places. Although, I did see her […]

Closing Time

Ah, chores. Is there anything worse than realizing you got the kids to bed but your day isn’t over yet. In fact, you’re just starting the closing procedures. Like that of a restaurant turning it’s open sign to closed for the night. You look at the house and it’s like a toy explosion met a […]

Sharing Is Caring Except When It’s Germs From That Kid With The Runny Nose

So your kid is sick. I get it. Kids aren’t big on lying in bed and resting while they’re sick. In fact, they’re pretty good about not showing any signs of being slowed down except for the string of mucus connecting their nose to their elbow. So you probably want to get them out of […]

The Day My 3yo Said A Homeless Man Looked Disgusting

I love my kid. She’s awesome. I love talking about stuff with her and seeing how she feels or what she thinks about it. It’s always interesting to hear her take on stuff.   Recently, we were driving and came up to a stop light. There was a homeless man asking for money. My daughter […]

When Your Friend Is Pregnant With Her First Child And Is “Totally Prepared”

You sit down with your friend who’s 7 months pregnant. She’s glowing and beautiful wearing clean clothes, beautiful hair that’s neatly arranged and makeup perfectly on. You can’t help but think she’s the “before” picture and you are most certainly the “after” picture. You glance down at your tank top that’s covered in, well actually, […]

I Can Now Say I’ve Walked Through Hell and Survived.  

My daughter just had diarrhea while wearing undies and pants and didn’t tell me.  She then took off her pants and undies and got it all over her legs, arms and hands.  Not to mention all over the floor. At first I started to run away because…well obviously I don’t need to explain why I […]

The Day I Called 911 On The Moon

I was 9 months pregnant, and besides being insanely uncomfortable, I was also in the midst of the absent-minded last few weeks of my pregnancy.   That night, I went to bed early.  I took my contacts out and put on my horribly “out-of-date prescription” glasses on.  As I laid down and tried to uncomfortably […]

What You Didn’t Know About Stay At Home Dads

As a stay-at-home mom, I’ve experienced judgement. Mainly from other moms. Trust me, I’m well aware I’m no June Cleaver. My house is messy, my kids don’t get baths everyday and I have tons of non-organic food in my house. So when I catch an eye roll or head shaking from another mom, I just […]

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. […]
