I think it was the year Noah was born, so goodness, 7 YEARS ago, that I asked my sister-in-law with FIVE children if I was at the hardest point NOW (3 under 3 is where I was) and she laughed... Continue reading

Tonight I watched last nights episode of This is Us as I folded laundry by myself. The show in and of itself has replaced my need/want/craving for Parenthood (RIP Parenthood!!! I miss you!) and fulfilled that TV drama category I... Continue reading

I can literally break the summer into a couple of segments. I'd call one the "good" and one the "bad" but the truth is that they both have good and bad aspects but they were distinctly DIFFERENT. Let me back... Continue reading

***Psst! It's me! I'm alive and surviving summer (BARELY!)! I've been very busy collecting HUNDREDS of confessions over the summer but as of now, I've had little time to share them with you! Today, I thought you might like this... Continue reading

Here's my truth right now. I can handle everything. I just can't handle everything WELL. This age & stage finds me juggling A LOT OF BALLS in the air at once. I've accepted the fact that I'm pretty much a... Continue reading

The other day I realized I didn't know when the last time Noah had pooped. Stay with me here. Meaning, we'd hit a major milestone! I hadn't WIPED A BUTT in many days!?!?! I've wiped a butt every single day... Continue reading

Oh man. I look back to days gone by when the kids were littles and remember thinking how HARD It was and how I wished for it to get EASIER. Every task was so cumbersome ... preparing all of the... Continue reading

As each day goes on and on, it is growing more and more apparent that when it comes to adoption, I really didn't know (or understand) anything at all. I was so blissfully unaware. And when I say that it... Continue reading

MONDAY! OHMYGOODNESS we had the nicest weekend here. I was excited to bust out this skirt I got from Stitch Fix in one of my recent (self styled!!!) fixes! I LOVE the color combos in this skirt. In fact, I... Continue reading

I once had a friend tell me "After my third kid, I basically gave up on keeping my house clean." And I was of course, "no way that will NEVER be me!" Well, add it to my list of "things... Continue reading

Homework. It is most certainly becoming the MOST DREADED TIME OF THE DAY and my kids are only on their beginner years of HOMEWORK. But you wanna know what I hate more than HOMEWORK? Um, PRESCHOOL HOMEWORK. There, I said... Continue reading

Last week I woke up on Friday and had a BIG day ahead of me. I had the day planned down to every last minute. It was also supposed to be HOT HOT HOT. I had no idea what I... Continue reading

If there is any ONE thing I learned from myself last year it's this ... if YOU want plans on YOUR birthday then YOU need to make them. I got a little lazy this year and sort of "expected" that... Continue reading

Whoa. I'm currently in a MAJOR "wait. WHY did I do this?" phase with my kids. So REAL that if one of those sweet Granny's approached me and said 'You'll miss the some day" I'd probably FOR REAL punch her... Continue reading

Happy Monday! But if I'm honest, I'm not feeling that happy. That s COMPLETELY out of the ordinary for me BTW. I'm just in a funk. And for now, I'm blaming it on the dreaded "spring forward" time change and... Continue reading
