I'm Afraid To Get My Photo Taken

I’m Afraid To Get My Photo Taken

I saw an ad for a Mommy & Me mini photo shoot pop up in my newsfeed and my first thought was oh yes, I should totally do this!  And then my second thought was oh, no I can’t.  I’m too fat.  And so instead of booking an appointment, I ate leftover Easter candy. I’m […]

The Day My Son Was

The Day My One-Year-Old Electrocuted Himself

My son electrocuted himself and it wasn’t in an outlet.  I had covered all of the outlets meticulously.  The problem was that I hadn’t anticipated my curious fifteen-month-old to stick his hands inside the wall and pull out an electrical wire.  We had just moved into our new condo and I was still trying to […]

Confessions of a

Confessions of a Television-aholic

I’m a television-aholic.  Feels good to admit it! Or bad?  Hard to say.  All I know is that when I find a show to binge watch, I can’t stop!  Hence the television-aholic title. The thing is I KNOW people attach bad connotations to watching television.  So, I try not to talk about it too much.  But […]

My McDreamy

My McDreamy

Grey’s Anatomy likes to give nicknames to their doctors, McDreamy, McSteamy, McVet etc.  And I’d say that I’ve definitely got myself a McDreamy, for more reasons than one. See, there comes a point in everyone’s life when you realize you’ve made the RIGHT decision.  Of course, there are times when you know you’ve made the […]

I’m Tired of Saying, “I’m tired.”

Almost every day someone asks me, “How are you?”  I usually respond with, “Good, tired.”  Because let’s be honest I am tired.  But I don’t think I even realize I’m saying what it is that I’m saying. Does that make sense? Yes, I’m tired.  Physically, emotionally, spiritually, tired.  It’s not just a lack of sleep […]

--Motherhood--

Motherhood, I’m Winging It.

Guys, today my almost two-year-old ate fruit snacks for breakfast.  In my defense they were organic! Thank you, Costco. As I allowed this travesty of a breakfast to happen, I realized that I am flying by the seat of my pants.  I just really hope that there isn’t some sort of emergency exit happening anytime soon. I […]

Story Time In Orange County

There are so many fun things to do with your kids in Orange County.  But one of the biggest questions we get is where can I take my child for story time?  Some story times are at libraries while others may be held in bookstores.  And since we love to make things EASY, we’ve compiled a […]
