The Motherhood Manual

Parenting should come with a manual. Everyone thinks it. This shit is undeniably hard and exhausting. No one knows what the hell they’re doing and we all just hope and pray that we aren’t royally screwing up our kids. I’m fairly certain that mine will need to use their savings accounts for therapy over college. […]

The Power of Hugs

Recently, I found myself caught up and overwhelmed with the day to day stressors of momming, keeping up with my job, and keeping up with life. To add to that, the 4 year old is in quite a stage-give me back the “terrible twos” I’d gladly trade them for the “ferocious fours” that we are […]

One More Breath, One More Step

Right now, I’m tucked away in a make shift office, chowing down on junk food. My phone is no where in sight and I’m pretty happily secluded. I feel crummy and I’m not exactly sure why-I guess it could be my fabulous nutrition, as I’m slaying my Raspberry Pop Tart… Who knows? But one there […]

In Support of the “Mom” Style

Yup. It happened. I got the “mom cut.” I cut my long locks and traded them in for a “lob” otherwise known as a long bob. This all happened shortly after I got my mom car, which, just so happened to be my dream car, a Honda Pilot-can you say living the dream?? As moms, […]

The Day of Love..
