My Husband Keeps Asking Me

My Husband Keeps Asking Me, “When Is This Going To Get Easier?”

Alright. It’s 10:20 pm. It’s a Monday night. Two nights ago my husband and I had a ‘staycation’/mini-escape to the beautiful Hyatt Regency Huntington Beach (for F-R-E-E, with an oceanfront suite upgrade…yay Hyatt credit card points!!!). Yet, I’m blogging at this hour, buzzed after numbing my mind on mindless TV (thank you, ‘New Celebrity Apprentice’) […]

Explaining Life {and Death}

Explaining Life (and Death) to a Toddler

I began writing a piece about a month and a half ago about why, for a mom of 3 littles, the ‘Holiday Season’ is not always the ‘most wonderful time of year.’ It was to be cheeky and lighthearted. As in, “Why, oh why, can’t strangers stop offering my kids sweets/junk wherever we go?!” And […]

Little can prepare me for what’s in store upon my return… I have entered my home. Is it the apocalypse? No, it’s the poopocalypse. It’s […]

I SURVIVED :: A First Year Story of A Mom With 3 Under 2

Ignorance Is Bliss? My son was born in June 2014. Everything was *amazing*. We couldn’t ask for anything more. We thought, “Should we try for another one?” Thus, we resolved that we did want more kids, that we weren’t getting any younger and we thought that having kids close in age would be awesome. So… bow-chick-a-wow-wow… […]

Give Them Grace.

I was exchanging a series of text messages with my friend who writes for Albuquerque Moms Blog.  We were talking about our husbands and how some of the decisions they make in regards to the care of our children are rather questionable.  For instance, for some inexplicable reason my husband can NEVER smell a poopie diaper.
