I read somewhere today that nothing has changed, but the presence of smart phones. That’s very true. We thought things were changing, but they haven’t. It’s just easier to capture now. The act. The people. The victims. We can all see it now.
It isn’t about convenience or inconvenience. We gave up the concept of that when we made the choice to have children.We are firm believers in changing your life when you have children. You don’t fit your children around your life. You fit your life around your children.
To my first born, my favorite little fella. My curly headed, brown-eyed, energetic, sweet, loving, hilarious little boy. I am so sorry. I’m sorry that I’m not the mommy I could be, nor the mommy I should be. I’m sorry we haven’t played like we used to. I’m sorry I hurt all the time. I’m […]
What a day my little fella has had. He is sleeping in his Big Boy Bed, in his Big Boy Room, for the very first time. It’s been a long time coming. We’ve been co-sleeping since birth and bed sharing since he was just a few months old. It worked wonders for us, although I […]
This is something I shared on Facebook first, but I wanted to save it here too. I’ll be doing more of this as I share more and more thoughts and stories (sharing from FB and what not). A few thoughts in regards to Mother’s Day: 1. This Mother’s Day happened to be the day […]
You know what was fun today? Oliver wanting to wear his Batman cape with his firetruck pjs and Spider-Man shoes.

Instead of adding to the previous “Nobody Tells You” post and making it longer than what is enjoyable, I thought I’d do a Part 2. It’s probably a bit absurd, but there’s just so much we aren’t told! 😉 Your baby will peel I knew a good chunk of info before I got pregnant. When […]
I’ve posted before about my securities and insecurities regarding my body and weight. While I continue to struggle (and succeed!) at accomplishing the goals I set for myself, I’m never able to forget the hilarity that comes with having a “mom body,” as I’ve taken to calling it over the years. As with any mother […]
Being on the move is one thing. It’s exciting. Thrilling! Every inch toward a piece of his own independence is milestone worthy, and we have dozens of pictures, even though he’s never gone very far at all. Well, unless he’s in his walker. That’s a completely different story. With his arms held high, as if […]
I just read a post from one of my favorite blogs (http://www.beyondmoi.com/an-open-letter-to-anyone-that-has-waited-for-my-family-when-we-were-late/ because I don’t know how to do funky link stuff) in which they wrote an open letter apologizing to those they’ve kept waiting as a result of their family running behind. In the post was all sorts of reasons why a family would be running […]
