You *Might* Be a Mom When…

The dictionary defines mom as a person’s mother. But, I feel like that doesn’t quite do the whole mom thing justice.  And because it’s Friday, and because most of us are beginning summer break, I thought it would be a good time for us all to redefine being a mom – and laugh. Because – […]

Oh The Messes I Have Known

Messes.  Clean up.  Messes.  More messes.  More clean up.  Only to then see more messes. Can anyone else relate?  While talking to my mother the other day about how I was attempting to clean up the house only to be followed around by a tiny tornado of a two-year-old, she reminisced about a book she […]

Tales of the Tooth Fairy

Tales of the Tooth Fairy

My daughter, Charlie, lost her 5th tooth a few nights ago following a physical altercation with her little sister.  Not one minute earlier, I had heard my husband shouting, “If you girls don’t stop rough housing with those suckers in your mouths, somebody’s gonna get hurt!”   In the midst of nursing my infant son, […]

Every Mom’s “Extra” Child

My mom had a 5th kid that everyone knew about, but no one ever talked about. This child lived shut away in the downstairs spare bedroom like some dark and dirty secret. Except it wasn’t a dark dirty secret. It was one of my mom’s beloved children, and if you knew my mom, then you […]

I'm tired of being tired

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 […]

You know you’re a golf widow when….

My husband is a golfer. He has been a golfer as long as I’ve known him. I know there are more partners of golfers out there. So, you know you’re a golf widow when… You casually prepare plans around golfing weekends – there’s no point making a fuss so you just embrace his loss for […]

Those “Fitness” People

I’m cliche.  I have a New Year’s resolution to exercise more.  I know.  I follow a few fitness people on Instagram and they are inspiring.   I want to be like them.   I want to balance on my head.   But sometimes I think that these “fitness” people try too hard to act like […]

If I Acted Like a Toddler

What would happen if I acted like a toddler?  I often think about this because some of the behavior my toddler exhibits is pretty funny, but absolutely NOT acceptable in everyday adult life.  However, there are times where I wish I could just act like a toddler and get away with it. Like for instance. […]

The Bedtime Routine

See that baby up above?  Yeah, he’s sleeping all peaceful and perfect.  That’s not my baby.  My baby hates bedtime.  Which makes me hate our bedtime routine.  I think I hate bedtime more than any other part of the day.  It’s like the epic end to a three part battle, but oh wait, there’s actually […]
