Life is unpredictable. With two kids, it is really unpredictable. I may have the best intentions for the day, but Madilyn may have a bad day and throw a fit or Juliana may bump her head as she is learning to walk and require more cuddle time. I love having a plan for the day. I love waking up and knowing what the three of us girls are going to do all day until daddy comes home around dinner Read the full post >>>

I’ll never be the same again… and that’s OK.


Sleep training. Oh, sleep training. That is what is consuming my thoughts, my brain, my week, my life these days. I have read every book out there. I have read message boards on the web, I have asked my friends for advice, I have called the pediatrician... how does one get an almost 5 month old to sleep in her crib? Follow your gut. Get support (THANK YOU Melissa!). Trust what your heart is Read the full post >>>

When I was pregnant with Madilyn I don't remember being SO. DAMN. HOT. No, I am not talking about being good looking. I might have a little bit of a pregnancy glow but I think it is mostly sweat because I am SO. DAMN. HOT. Pregnant in August is what I imagine menopause to be like. Hot. Lightheaded as soon as I walk outside. Finding excuses to stay inside in the air conditioner. Telling my Read the full post >>>

Worry. Love. Easy frittata.


I am in that place of calm. My 2-year old, Madilyn, is napping in her room upstairs. The house is quiet. All I hear is the sound of my window air conditioner working away. It is in these moments that I collect myself. Maybe catch up on some emails. Even count my blessings. I feel my baby girl on the way kick me from inside. She is due to arrive in late October. I am excited and scared as Read the full post >>>

Darn, pregnancy can bring on the tears. Even bigger, being a mom can bring on so many emotions. "Am I doing this right?" "How in the heck am I going to handle two kids?" One day, Madilyn and I have a great day. The next day, her and I are fighting in a power struggle. She doesn't want to nap. She throws a fit. For those of you with kids, you know that this is a hopeless battle. Don't get me Read the full post >>>
