lies i { regularly } tell my toddler.

Let’s face it: as parents, we will totally take advantage of our small children. I mean, heck!, they owe us. They put us through the ringer with their “demands” and nonsense. It’s no wonder we (occasionally) tell them things that they do not know are false. Like, completely false. My mother decided to point out […]

life lately //

November 22, 2015

I swear even when we have “nothing going on,” we have nonstop stuff to do! Does anyone else feel that way!? Well, it’s clear we’ve definitely been plenty busy with doctor appointments and hospital visits, etc. Blah! We’ve had our fill of all of that. But besides that, we have had a little bit of […]

but wait! there’s more!

November 18, 2015

Because just when you think “nothing else can happen,” something does. Like picking up your prescription and rear ending a girl leaving Target during her lunch break. Yep. That happened. Luckily [and yes, there really is a silver lining here], neither car was damaged — at all! However, I kinda hit her hard. Moosh and […]

co-sleeping // the good, the bad, and the reality.

November 13, 2015

Before I get into this, let me just say that I have zero comment on the hazards and benefits of co-sleeping, so please do your own research. That being said, I can almost guarantee that within your first few years of parenting, you will end up with a child in your bed. I remember our […]

pregnancy update //

November 5, 2015

I feel a LOT of pressure. And no, silly, not emotional or mental pressure… (although, truthfully, there is a bit of that). But lots and lots of pressure… pelvic pressure! I’ve asked my doctors and, although I don’t recall having this kind of pressure this early with Ari, it’s apparently normal. Oi. I’m still sick-ish. […]

weekend wrap up //

November 4, 2015

  Hey look at me! I’m doing a wrap up of festivities that occurred just ONE week ago, instead of THREE weeks ago! Ha! #success Thursday  // Technically, our ‘weekend’ started on Thursday with Trick or treat at the art museum. Or as Moosh calls it, the Art ‘Seum. Moosh loves the art museum! And […]

Ari’s 3rd Birthday //

November 3, 2015

Well, it’s only been TWO WEEKS since Ari’s birthday. To say I’m slacking would be an understatement. Although can you really blame me? I’ve been bouncing from doctor appointment to doctor appointment, dragging a toddler along, and throwing up along the way (sometimes quite literally). So yeah. There have been “delays,” one would say. But […]

happy 3rd birthday, baby boy!

October 16, 2015

As I sit here and write this on the eve of Ari’s third (!!!) birthday, and the third anniversary of the most horrific + agonizing night of my life, I’m in complete shock. When this post goes live Friday morning, my sweet little baby boy is going to be a three-year old KID. I’m struggling […]

it was a good day.

October 7, 2015

Thank you everyone for all of the birthday wishes Monday. I ended up being rather sick and only sleeping for 2 hours the night before, but I made the most of it. Lack of sleep and getting sick all night sure made for an interesting morning…  Buuuut I got my butt outta bed and got a […]

{ welcome, october }

October 2, 2015
large (3)

It makes me so happy to see how many people — both in person, and all over social media — truly delight in everything that is October. There’s just something welcoming about the cool, crisp, Autumn air, warm coffee, oversized sweaters, and the falling leaves! I have always loved October, but I assumed it was […]
