it takes a village

After Moosh was born, it became crystal clear that the saying “It takes a village to raise a child” is 100% true. I was, and forever will be, eternally grateful for everyone who brought over a meal or sacrificed their time to come clean our house and do the laundry. We even had several family […]

I’d like to report that over the last couple of weeks my health has taken a dramatic turn for the better… but instead, it’s gotten even worse. My ‘morning sickness’ is being treated with 3 different medications at the same time, and I’m still throwing up an average of 3 times a day (on a […]

Pregnancy has taken over my life, friends! Seriously. I’m sick pretty much all of the time (truly, very, very, sick). But as much of a cluster that this pregnancy has caused these last few months, I’ve also managed to fit in some happy to our lives. And I’ve been quiet about ALL of it… because […]

Happy Fourth Of July Weekend!

the fourth

Stay safe. Have fun. And celebrate with the ones you love! Looking back at this picture from last year, it’s hard to believe how much older Moosh is! And that it’s been a WHOLE YEAR since my sister-in-law visited us from Denver! Though we won’t all be together this year, we’ll still be going to […]

the truth about this 2nd pregnancy //

My pants started to get tight prior to even finding out I was pregnant. Which totally made sense once I found out I was pregnant. However, that happens FAST with a second pregnancy! Dang! People weren’t kidding! Morning sickness that lasts all day and taking care of a crazy ass toddler is hell on Earth. […]

The other day on Facebook I shared that I called my kid an asshole — and meant it. And I started thinking about all the people I likely pissed off; all of the moms (& dads) who would never dare call their kids an asshole, let alone share it on social media. But truthfully? They’re lying. […]

Oh hey, it’s a week later already. Short work weeks don’t equate to long blog weeks, that’s for sure. Cause I haven’t even had a chance to TALK about our Memorial Day Weekend, let alone sit down and write about it. Saturday  // So those big plans I had to go to yoga, Crafty Mart at […]

I was honestly beginning to wonder if it would ever happen, his love for books and reading. He spent so much time loving ‘boy’ things like Thomas the Tank and Jake and the Neverland Pirates, and I wasn’t sure he would ever slow down enough to sit down with a book. But something happened just […]

I wanna go running. //

It was only a matter of time before Moosh proclaimed that he wanted to go running. I merely suggested going running on Memorial Day, and next thing I knew he was all “Mommy! I wanna go running! I wanna go running!” Of course I didn’t anticipate him actually running. On days when I don’t take […]
