I like to keep it really real on this here blog. And in the spirit of doing so, I have to admit something to you — I know that in the grand scheme of worldly problems? Ours don’t even rank. Yes. Even though I’ve bitched and moaned about Remy since, well, I was pregnant with […]

This weekend was a freaking roller coaster. Friday night Chad and I went on our second date since Remy was born. It was really nice. And super nice of a dear friend to watch the kiddos while we went out. But guess what? Our “date” was only an hour long — and not for lack […]

We did it! We made it through the first two weeks of preschool. I was worried I would be a wreck. I was worried he would be a wreck. I was worried we would be all worn out by noon. It turns out none of that was true. I mean it. It’s weird. The first […]

Guys. GUYS. I have a preschooler. My heart hurts and is, simultaneously, so overjoyed. What are these feelings!? Ugh! OK, so this weekend was, simply, lovely. Saturday Miss Bea woke up early (of course), and we ended up taking a nap by 8am. We woke up just in time to get ready to go to […]

Getting excited over seemingly ‘small’ milestones was something I laughed at before having kids. But now? Now I rejoice in watching my kids grow and learn new things. Every parent does! And it’s totally NOT silly! Newborns grow and learn at such a rapid pace, it seems as if they’re developing and hitting major milestones […]

Last Thursday I hurried the kiddos into the car and packed up a couple of bags to make our way to Columbus. My sister gave me the good word that she was, indeed, in labor! She was a bit panicky because her water was leaking and the midwives were going to induce her — something […]

Hey! Did you know we went to Kentucky (or as Ari calls it ‘Tucky) three weeks ago!? Yep! We did! And honestly, the last two-plus weeks haven’t been hard. We’ve just been busy. And I’ve had a hard time concentrating on pretty much everything (helloooooo, three different to-do lists that need to be condensed!). But […]

All moms of newborns understand that their babies are going to cry. They cry when they’re hungry, tired, and have a dirty diaper, the waterworks are on. We understand that it’s really the only way they have to express how they feel. But no one can prepare you for those other moments — the moments […]

Well, it may have taken us 7 hours to make a 5 and a half hour trip, but we finally made it to Kentucky — or ‘Tucky, as Ari so lovingly refers to it — last night. It turns out traveling with two kids, both of which refuse to sleep in the car, is about […]

Hey! We survived another month! I mean, it wasn’t easy. And it certainly was not pretty. But we survived a whole half year! Holy smokes! Before I get into a Remy Bea update, let me just tell you that I’m still depressed. Although, talking about it — both online and in person — has totally […]
