it still takes a village

February 18, 2016

I thought I could do it. I mean, I’ve dealt with a newborn before, right? Wrong. Oh, so wrong. Thankfully, I had Chad home for two weeks to help with the transition of our family of three to four. And then when he went back to work, my mom came up from Kentucky to stay […]

lessons learned in parenting 2 kids for only 2 weeks. AKA i know NOTHING.

February 10, 2016

I’d be lying if I said adjusting to two children has been… easy. ‘Cause it hasn’t. I feel pushed and pulled in so many different directions.

But seriously, something about celebrating Christmas leaves everyone in a post-Christmas lull. For me, it’s a mix between that and pregnancy exhaustion.

soliciting parenting advice //

December 9, 2015

It’s rare that I send out a mass SOS to my fellow moms + dads. In fact, I’m trying to recall a time over the last three years in which I actually begged for advice and can’t… but here I go… About a month ago Moosh requested to watch Jumanji — a movie he’s seen […]

what to get a toddler for the holidays //

December 2, 2015

One thing I’ve learned about babies and toddlers is that you can totally go overboard with gifts. And well, everything. They get very over stimulated very quickly.
