My best made plans can be found on my pillow

My best made plans can be found on my pillow

Somehow my baby turned 8 months today. Time really flies. Like, seriously. Sleep still eludes me. The baby has been waking up numerous times a night for months, like a repeat of his older brother. Speaking of, my three year old has been waking up once during the night most nights recently. He either demands [...]

The 4-letter word I don’t like my son to say

The 4-letter word I don’t like my son to say

The first – and only – time I heard it, it stung like a knife through my tender mommy heart. My son, the threenager, was aiming his frustration toward me. He was upset with me for some typical three-year-old reason that I have since forgotten. He hesitated before he found the word his young mind [...]

The season of our lives

The season of our lives

I feel like I have a million things going on at all times, and this blog has taken a little bit of a back seat, which frustrates me. But I've been working on some things behind the scenes that are working toward some professional goals of mine, which is exciting. It's just been another thing [...]

Free Falling into Fall

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 [...]

Do I look tired?

This has been the longest week ever. Yesterday (Wednesday) felt like it should have been Friday. It might have something to do with the fact that the baby has a cold, so the past five nights I have gotten even worse sleep than the already 5-6 fragmented hours I get a night. And on top [...]

Blue Sky Day

Blue Sky Day

Somehow it's been nearly a month since I've returned to work. It's incredible to me how fast a month goes when you're having, err, fun? More like when you're raising kids and working full time. I was driving to work today and thinking about how I feel leaps and bounds better mentally than I did [...]

Tiny Love

Life with a newborn and pre-schooler is exhausting. They both have different, yet equally demanding needs, and it's a constant balancing act to make sure I'm giving each what they need. That said, I finally reached a point in my life where I'm physically feeling older. I'm 31, have two kids, one of which I'm [...]
