Boys Will Be Boys

I have two boys. I am a girl. Save for the occasional time they to pretend they’re carrying a purse, my two boys are ALL boy, ALL the time. As a girly girl, and the only girl in my house, I find a lot of their behaviors unrelatable. Summer is coming in hot (no pun…

Are the Twos Terrible, Or Am I?

I haven’t written a post in a while because I have felt pretty uninspired lately. My creative juices just haven’t been flowing like they used to, and I’m attributing that to the twos–specifically my two who are two.

Sounds fun,…

Wow, it’s been a while…a while since I had an afternoon during nap time when I could open my laptop in peace and quiet for anything other than paying bills or adding to my Amazon cart. Quite a few things have changed over the past month. Well, more like a month and some change…but who’s…

MAYBE My Husband Was Right…

I like to be prepared. Actually, that’s the understatement of the century. I love to think ahead, create a plan, make a list, overthink possible outcomes, and walk into situations with all my ducks in a row. I even asked one of my nurses to give me a detailed play-by-play of a c-section so I…
