As with most things these days, I am a little late, but I'll say it anyway--Happy Mother's Day! Motherhood. Wow! What a crazy, important and potentially disastrous adventure. The thing about motherhood is it is a trial by error, trial by fire sort of thing. And that is what makes it, I believe, the most … Continue reading Running Like a Mother
Not wanting to take pictures of my own disgusting toes for your viewing pleasure, I just googled images to see if there was a picture of someone else's "ugly" feet I could show you. Let me reassure you, there are lots ugly, down right disgusting feet out there. Some that made me cringe, some that … Continue reading From Terrifying to Touchable
I've had the relatively same experience a few times recently. It goes something like this: Me out and about with my kids, usually holding one, chasing another. One might be crying, or screaming, or kicking; most definitely someone is running. I am probably trying to do something totally unreasonable like feed them a meal in … Continue reading These are the days?
In case you were wondering, I did not go insane after the transcontinental plane ride with two toddlers. It happened a few weeks later. I'm not even sure what to say other than my children are waking up at 5:30 a.m., I am exhausted, I have cried almost every day this week, I haven't cleaned … Continue reading ‘Bout time for an update
Well, we didn't make it to Maine in time. My grandma passed away on August 3, the night before we were scheduled to leave at 4 a.m. We awoke the next morning with solemn hearts and took our time eating breakfast and loading the car. There was no more need to rush. We had missed … Continue reading Goodbye Grandma

It's a nice break. When I found out I was going to have another baby only 14 months … Continue reading What’s new
It's been such a hectic couple of weeks round here, to stay the least, I almost forgot I had a blog. Okay, not quite but there have been so many things I have wanted to write about, like the well-loved oleaginous Whirly Pop I threw out after six years of use while packing a few … Continue reading Lessons in moving with toddlers
Well my husband is home I have internet again! How's that for an attention grabber? Yeah, well, okay, it's exciting for me! I probably didn't mention this before (because of all of those weirdoes out there on the internet who are most likely not reading my blog), but my husband was out of town the … Continue reading Don’t call it a comeback…
Groove, mojo—whatever you want to call it, I fear I’ve lost it. Perhaps forever, because I am not so sure I will be as lucky as Stella and get mine back. After all, how exactly does one go about getting their mojo back? Does it require highlights, tanning beds, shopping sprees, Botox, and trips to … Continue reading If I ever had a mojo, I think I’ve lost it
Yesterday was one of "those" days. My dog was eating crayons, (the orange ones in case you were wondering); a bottle I gave Landon in an effort to streamline our dinner routine leaked all over the high chair, the floor, me, him, our dog; and when ripping a diaper from my upright two-year old anxiously … Continue reading I have the cutest kids!
