For all the moms who feel a little lost

I can say with complete honesty that being a mom is one of the most glorious things I've done, but it's also been the hardest by far. Along with all the snuggles, giggles, and childish wonder, motherhood brings exhaustion and sacrifice. I think we've all been there. Before kids you swear you won't let them …

Know a ‘Poor Me’ person? Don’t let them drain you.

I try not to do posts like this because I'd rather spread happiness instead of dragging my dark cloud over people. But sometimes I just have to get it out in fear it will consume me. Do you know someone who is Master of their own Misery? I do. And damn, is it relentless. Let …

Stitch Fix review – November 2018

I'm not going to lie, lately I've been on a little bit of an online shopping bender. I don't know if it's the time of year or the severe lack of sleep I'm getting, but I've been clicking to my little heart's delight. And a couple weeks ago I decided it was time for another …

Just tired

I'm just tired. When I have no idea how to put my feelings into words, my go-to response is "I'm just tired." That's how I've been feeling the past few days. A lack of sleep has a lot to do with it, I know that. Last night I clocked a whopping 5 hours and 13 …

The Monday-est of Mondays

I have baby poop on my sleeve. That's how I started my day. I managed to get to daycare only 10 minutes behind schedule, pulled my chubby smiley boy out of his car seat and immediately smelled something. I'm chatting with his teachers telling them he pooped and one gal grabs him to change his …

Free Falling into Fall

I'm still coming off the hell that was last week with both kids sick. And I'm missing coffee more than ever. The three year old finally returned to sleeping through the night in his bed without waking up screeching multiple times a night. The baby is making progress. He's still congested and coughs at night, …

I miss coffee

It's been the longest week ever. And it's only Tuesday. WTF. I seem to be in a cycle of one thing after another lately. When it rains, it pours, right? It all started over a week ago when the baby caught a cold, which hit a crescendo over the weekend with what I'm pretty sure …
