Motherhood poem-Mama You Told Me

I came across this poem while perusing my Facebook news feed. It really sums up all of the back and forth emotions and thoughts motherhood brings. I'm thankful for social media and for all the honest thoughts and blog posts I'm seeing lately that perfectly depict and showcase the rollercoaster that can sometimes be "parenting".… Continue reading Motherhood poem-Mama You Told Me

Being Happy: A Life Less Stressed & More Meaningful

I don't make New Year's resolutions. I don't suppose for any particular reason other than I don't like to give myself time limits on accomplishments. This year I'm going to be more active. This year I'm going to save for my vacation. I'd prefer to make that goal when the moment arises, because I don't need… Continue reading Being Happy: A Life Less Stressed & More Meaningful

3 Year Old Activities: Easy & Inexpensive

I love Pinterest and just perusing the internet to find new activities and projects to do with Blake. Some projects turn out really great, and he's super engaged in them. Others are a complete flop! I don't know about you but I get excited when I'm browsing the internet and I think I've found the… Continue reading 3 Year Old Activities: Easy & Inexpensive

Stitch Fix #3

The postman came today while B was taking a nap and delivered my favorite package! As soon as I see that teal logo it's like Santa visited my front porch! For this package, I requested a cross body bag to my stylist. Also included were 2 tops, navy and burgundy, a scarf, and a denim… Continue reading Stitch Fix #3

Schedule and Chores for a 3-Year Old

I suppose all parents experience moments where we wish we'd done things a little differently. Or a lot differently. Or implemented something a little sooner. As with a lot of parenting skills, I'm of the mind that you should start things as soon as possible. For us, this goes for disciplining (we started time outs at 11 months),… Continue reading Schedule and Chores for a 3-Year Old

Stitch Fix #2

My Stitch Fix arrivals have been the highlight of my day! Seeing the box at my front door is like an awaited Christmas present! Yesterday afternoon the doorbell rang, my dogs went crazy, and Blake awoke up from his nap. Every mom's "Oh no!" dread. He ran out of his room looking disheveled and delirious, then angrily… Continue reading Stitch Fix #2

Hello, Stitch Fix

Hey. Busy mom over here. I don't know about you, but I feel like I go-go-go. I finally arrived home today at 6pm, just in time for dinner and bedtime routine with Blake. When you're a parent a lot of things get put on the back burner (especially the first week of school!) Those things you… Continue reading Hello, Stitch Fix

Sleep Training a Toddler

After the hurdle of sleep training an infant, I just kind of assumed we were done. Forever. We started sleep training Blake at 4 months old and ever since then he's slept through the night with no regression.  Celebrating this success, I think Michael and I both thought that was it. We were done and the… Continue reading Sleep Training a Toddler

Work hard, use your common sense and don't be afraid to trust your instincts. -Fred L. Turner Yesterday I sought a second opinion in an OBGYN. I haven't shared much on my blog, but close friends know how I've been struggling with ovarian cysts rupturing since last June. Six of them, to be exact. My current… Continue reading News

Potty Training

We have been pretty lax when it's come to potty training. This has been for multiple reasons. Laziness on our part, lack of time, and not having the support from daycare to help things stay consistent when he's there (this will change come Monday when he goes to his new daycare). Because of all this,… Continue reading Potty Training
