I like to keep a tidy house. I have two little people and a dog running around, so it’s hardly ever all REEEEALLY clean at the same time, but I do my best to keep it at least “picked up” by the end of every day. I’m a stay at home mom, so it’s a […]
My days typically begin with the quiet creak of my son’s door opening down the hall. I know that the squeak between the wooden door frame means he has changed out of his PJ pants and pull-up and into undies covered by a blue train or a firefighting Dalmatian puppy. He runs into the living […]
Mommas who are, have, and will survive the tummy bug this year know the deepest, darkest depths of mommy despair that I would never wish on anyone. When you are pregnant and creating these precious bundles of joy NO ONE forewarns you of the awfulness that is the rota-virus… NO ONE. After surviving yet again […]
I had all three of my children pretty much back-to-back-to-back. Each time my husband and I found out we were expecting, we dreamily envisioned our little stair-step kiddos developing close knit friendships, and we were excited that our children would all be close in age. What I did not envision, however, was how tricky those early days of keeping up with a […]
As I hurriedly buckled my (screaming) 8 month old in her car seat, shoved everything in the diaper bag, and sprinted out of the restaurant, I was reminded of why I avoid going to public places. While my husband and our friends got to enjoy their dinner, I got to drive home with an overstimulated (read: very very […]
Even though I am by no means an expert, gardening is something I truly enjoy. Naturally when I had kids I looked forward to sharing this love with them. The first spring after my son was born I was able to have a garden. When he got to be a toddler it was hard to keep […]

Moms are notorious for multi-tasking and being short on time. So I love to do anything that accomplishes multiple purposes at once. A few years ago I led ‘mom and me’ workouts on nearby playgrounds. I loved the idea of the whole family being active outside together! I still make it a point to do […]
Scrolling through Facebook the other day, a photo caught my eye. It was a photo which showcased a letter that a daycare worker had taped up to one of their windows. The letter basically not so nicely demanded that parents stop their “appalling” behavior of being on their phones while picking up their children. I get it. I understand what the daycare […]

We have 3 kids in our house – ages 6, 5, and 2. I am an obsessive-compulsive cleaner and somewhat of a control freak. I know what you’re thinking… these things do not go well together. Throughout my day I am constantly in situations where I stop and think, ‘What the FUDGE did I get […]
