5 tips for an Easy Toddler Bedtime Routine //

July 29, 2017

Neither of my children were good sleepers as babies. It’s one of those things that I was alwasy really resentful of.

Weekend Wrap Up //

June 9, 2016

I mentioned yesterday that I got really sick on Friday afternoon. Truthfully, I was feeling a bit ‘off’ on Friday morning. I thought it was from just lack of sleep. Turns out, I had a ‘bug’ of sorts. I took both kids upstairs to my bed and turned on the TV. I thought if I […]

Kid-Friendly Kitchen Crafts!

April 14, 2016

When I found out I was going to be a mom, I had visions of what Motherhood would be. You know, not just rainbows and butterflies. Or even meltdowns and panic attacks. Honestly, I had visions and dreams of coloring, painting, and other crafts! You know, typical kid stuff, right?? Wrong. Oh-so-wrong! It turns out boys […]

finding my mommy zen.

February 19, 2016

I realized last night that from the sounds of my rants lately, it would appear that I hate everything and everyone and that nothing good or happy has been going on. Well, the new baby struggles are real and I cope by just putting it all out there and sharing my experiences. Buuuut there have […]

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.

farewell to three.

January 12, 2016

I’ve been clinging to some Moosh time as of late. Big time. I know our time is coming to a close as a family of three. And it’s making me super emotional. Super emotional for my first baby. And for what bringing a second baby into the family means. It means less one-on-one time with […]

Life Lately | January 2016

January 5, 2016

Life has been crazy busy lately. But we haven’t actually done anything lately. Seriously. Here’s the long + short of what we’ve been up to as of late: Nesting. I’ve been mega-nesting as of late.

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. At birthday parties, we’ve learned not to open every gift. In fact, we only open about 3. The rest? We put in storage to be opened later [and […]
