Sometimes I can’t…Sometimes I can

So I’ll try. I will continue to try. This isn’t the kind of try that I have been trying these past 5.5 years. This kind of try requires a whole new level of strength, humility, effort, and energy. It’s something new. So I have to try. Continue reading Sometimes I can’t…Sometimes I can

Car Seats: For Their Safety

I know this topic is talked about constantly in the parenting world, but truly it is so vital to never stop talking about it. Recently I re-stumbled upon a mom’s experience about losing her son in a car accident because he could escape his carseat like crazy. No matter what style she strapped him in or carseat he used. Then this all happened. Tragedy. It’s … Continue reading Car Seats: For Their Safety

My Life As a Stay at Home Mom

I saw this question/status posted on a friends timeline the other day. It wasn’t my first time reading it. But reading it again just gave me a huge reminder of where I have been on my journey as a Stay at Home Mom (SAHM). Becoming a SAHM… I became a SAHM when I lost my nanny. No, she didn’t pass away, but our arrangement came … Continue reading My Life As a Stay at Home Mom

things my kids cry for during the worst times for no reason at all

She’s very quiet, a great reader, but the slowest person on the planet. My 2.5 yr old son (Michael) is my wild child. Sweetheart for sure, but holy moly the kids runs, yells, and does everything … Continue reading Things my kids cry for during the worst times for no reason at all.

Wake up and shake it all off. Today is a new day

Wake up and shake it all off. Today is a new day.

I won’t lie, this has become my daily mantra. If I don’t tell myself this, it’s incredibly hard to get out of bed and actually feel like a human being with a purpose. I can’t tell if I’m chained to my bed because of sleep deprivation (thank you wonderful son who refuses to stay in his bed), or if it’s the depression that tends to … Continue reading Wake up and shake it all off. Today is a new day.

Tomorrow Is a New Day 

Yesterday as I went to the checkout counter at Subway, I saw a sign propped up next to the till, asking for donations for the #StrongAgainstCancer campaign. If you don’t know what that is, it’s a donation campaign to raise funds for children’s hospital for children fighting cancer.  I teared up right there on the spot.  I thought of Logan.  I then saw my wrist … Continue reading Tomorrow Is a New Day 

Why I really hate being a mom…

Being a mom is one tough job. Like, unbelievably tough. I hate this job. Don’t get me wrong though, I absolutely LOVE my kids, and I don’t love them any less because I hate being a mom. It’s just a weird effect from actually becoming a loving parent. But seriously, that being said, I really fucking hate being a mom. Here’s why. It requires an … Continue reading Why I really hate being a mom…
