Mommyhood Perfection: It Really Doesn’t Exist

I was looking through my Facebook feed this past weekend, and can’t believe how many people have had babies in the last week. I love those pictures of the first few days in the hospital. You know, the new family photos? They make my heart swell for the new mommies and daddies of the world.And then I started seeing the posts about the first few days – if you have kiddos, you probably affectionately remember them like I do – where you were completely wrapped up in newborn life, wearing the same…See More

"I agree with you! I love hanging out with my little one, but there are days that I just want 5 minutes peace! I love the nights when she goes down early, and I am awake enough to watch a show with my husband. Ahhh, those rare nights!  :)"

WAHM: Making It All Work With Limited Childcare

After my last post, I got a lot of emails from all of you who also work from home, wondering how I make it all work. Sure, I’ve got these tips and tricks for working from home with a little one…but what actually makes our days tick?  I get it: sometimes, working from home when your kids are home seems impossible. I’ve been there. In fact, I probably ask myself why I do what I do at least once a week. And then I remember why we have this part-time childcare set up: because I want to be able to…See More

Mommy Win: I Avoided the Meltdown

Do you ever have those parenting moments where you’re just like…ohmigosh. This is too much. I need thirty minutes of quiet or my head is going to freaking explode. WHY IS IT ONLY FOUR O’CLOCK????Okay, I know you have. Because we all have those moments, sometimes more frequently than we would possibly care to admit. Today was one of those days for me – seriously, by the end of the day, I was SO HAPPY to read bedtime stories and go through our bedtime routine. And then hand the reigns to daddy so…See More

The Cost of Two Kids is Blowing My Mind

Today I was sitting at my desk, trying to work. But all I could think about was OMG baby stuff. And then I just had to get everything that was sitting on my mind down on paper.So…lists. Because lists are the only way to keep my pregnant mind organized. Post its + spreadsheets + my white board. What the heck would I do without them?Anyway, once I started putting my mind to paper, my thoughts went from OMG baby stuff toOMG LIFE IS GETTING EXPENSIVE.I mean, I remember this happening when I was…See More

24 Weeks Pregnant and Sorting Baby Clothes – and She Came to Visit

The other day, I was at SkyZone with my friend Tiffani and our boys. If you’ve never been for toddler time, it’s pretty awesome: the young kiddos (under five) can jump for an hour and a half (we never make it that long) and wear off some energy. And you don’t have to worry that a bigger kid is going to jump on them. And it’s only four bucks – which is a steal, if you’ve been there on a non-toddler-day.Tiffani is pregnant, too – due a few weeks ahead of me – and we were chatting about getting…See More

My Battle to Find a Winter Maternity Coat. Aka the Post that Turned Me Into a Marshmallow.

So I’ve had this struggle finding a winter coat this year.It sounds so stupid, doesn’t it? I mean, I live in the middle of the frozen tundra of Minnesota, where no matter how hot it gets during the summer, winter still comes a knockin’ every single year. And I really needed a new down coat this year.You see, here where it gets to be so cold, you’re practically required to dress like a marshmallow for a few months out of the year simply for self preservation. It’s really just unavoidable. I put…See More

Anxiety, Jerks and Making Good Decisions

I used to be really into reading. Like, I would read several books over the course of a weekend kind of thing. Today, my life isn’t really in that place anymore – chasing after young kids doesn’t really allow you to sit down and read a bunch of books, or even a few chapters, on a regular basis. But back in the day, reading was my little escape. I had pretty bad social anxiety when I was younger and that’s how I escaped it. Like, it was really bad, you guys.Over time – and we’re talking years…See More

Beauty Buys: Five Products I’m Obsessed With Right Now

When it comes to New Years Resolutions, I don’t tend to make a lot of them. But when it comes to starting out the new year on the right foot, I’m all about it. I have a tendency to re-commit myself to a better beauty regimen at this time of year. I think it’s a combination of the New Years hype and that I realize my summer tan (what few rays I catch, anyway) is totally gone, and my skin/face could really use a little brightening. Basically, Christmas couldn’t come at a better time for this girl…See More

The Week After Christmas Drives Me Crazy

I love Christmas. And I actually can’t believe that it’s already over. Does anyone else feel like the time between October 1 and today went WAY too fast?Christmas came and went in the blink of an eye. I got myself so wrapped up in everything that we had going on, I feel like I missed out on something – even though I probably didn’t. Life just moves too fast these days.This was the first year that Ricky really “got” the whole Santa concept. And it was seriously amazing. Rick and I were up til 1…See More
