Ok so you're on the go, making what feels like the 27th round of "in and out of the car seat" and you hear it- AGAIN: "Mommy, I'm hungry!!" You rummage through what would have once been a super cute, designer purse but is now the "mom bag" of all mom bags, complete with 18 … Continue reading Raising the BAR
Our marriage is the foundation our family is built on, as much as we love our girls we will always prioritize our marriage first. I have said (and truly believed) a version of that statement more times than I can count, but in all honesty, have I been LIVING it?

To My Mini, As you grow older and I get to see who you are and more of your personality something is becoming glaringly obvious: you are me. It scares me and excites me at the same time. It is in the realization of this that I know I have no choice but to really accept … Continue reading To My Mini-
"Mom" That word used to scare the shit out of me. I always knew I wanted it, more than anything, but it's a lot of pressure right? Oh you know, just responsible for the lives of tiny humans... no big deal. I love the saying "I was a perfect mom, then I had kids". I … Continue reading Baggage Claim

Dear First Time Mom, I'm not going to tell you all the tips that everyone has already been telling you. I'm not going to say "Sleep now before the baby gets here" or "Enjoy time with your husband because everything is about to change!" I won't recommend which bottles you should use, or give you … Continue reading To The First Time Mom
Did you know goldfish will grow to the size of their environment? Typically they stay small because they are kept in small bowls (or die within 24 hours- it's a toss up) but if allowed to they can grow to be quite large. I'm sure this is true of other types of fish as well, … Continue reading Do You Need a Bigger Tank?
"Come here often?" I said awkwardly to a complete stranger/other mom at the park. No, seriously you guys, I literally said that. It was like some sort of desperate early 90's pick up line.. and to no surprise to me.. the poor woman nervously smiled, nodded, scooped her child up, and headed to the furthest … Continue reading Mom Seeking Mom

As we are fast approaching … Continue reading Roots On Wheels
