The Common Cold: A Horror Story

I’m a huge fan of horror movies but I am quick to discount ones that just use blood and gore to cause fear. The good ones?  They are the ones that build a sense of dread you can feel deep down in the pit of your stomach. What rivals that particular brand of dread?  The […]

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 I took my contacts out and put on my horribly “out-of-date prescription” glasses. As I laid down and tried to uncomfortably shift my […]

Maternity clothes, you the real MVP

Today is the landmark occasion that I finally put away my maternity clothes. Sure, it may be over 5 months since my last child left my body and sometime less than that after reaching my pre-pregnancy weight.  But dammit, I earned every minute in those stretchy, extra forgiving clothes. Sorry, not sorry. Hell, I would […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]
