I’ll start out by saying that I feel like a bit of a hypocrite broaching this topic because I have by no means figured out the art of saying no, but I think this is an important topic. Even though I am a mom, I still want to “do it all.” I want to spend… Continue reading The Art of Saying No
Yesterday, when I logged onto Facebook I was reminded that this was “One Year Ago Today.” I think this is so important, so I’m going to share it here with all of you because I think we could all use a little support once in a while: “I want to take a moment and share… Continue reading We all need somebody to lean on…
Recently, I’ve noticed an uptick of parenting blog posts centered on phrases that seem to offend new moms and dads. They range from “Savor every moment” to “Kids grow up way too fast” and are often conveyed by those who have yet to enter the parenting realm themselves, or are so far removed from having young… Continue reading My least favorite phrase…
Last week, I got up and went for a run while it was still dark out. I tossed my running belt aside because I was running late and in the rest of the craziness that is our typical morning routine. Fast forward 45 minutes to having dropped A at daycare, and I’m now on my way… Continue reading I left my phone at home for a day… and survived!
I’m going to go ahead and say it: I hate texting. Yes, I get the efficiency of it. And sure, it’s useful when you need to communicate direct information (i.e. Can you pick up milk at the store?) but I don’t like it. I’ll admit it, I’m an awkward texter. I have never really learned… Continue reading Confessions from an Awkward Texter
I’m going to go out on a limb and say I’m not alone when I tell you this week was a rough one. My husband and I were lucky enough to be home over the holidays. Our daycare was open, so A went a few days for shorter hours, but for the most part we… Continue reading Back to work.. and daycare
Here I am in the young hours of 2016, sitting down to write my first blog post of the year. I’m probably right along with thousands of others, resolving to make this “the year” or “start the year out on the right foot.” How many actually follow through? I’ve seen figures all over the map,… Continue reading Happy New Year!
This week’s post is inspired by a fellow mom that I met recently. At the start of the summer, I joined a book club. Fun fact: I have been in many book clubs and until this one, the group has never met past meeting #1. I found out about my current book club from one… Continue reading Book Club or Moms Book Club?
Happy belated Thanksgiving. I hope everyone enjoyed some turkey and time with family or friends. Notice that I didn’t say restful. That’s not because it is not my wish for you, but I’m assuming that it is the reality for many of you. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. I love spending time with… Continue reading Thanksgiving Break? Try Thanksgiving rush.
I promise that every post won’t be centered around travel, but this seemed timely with the holidays coming. Before I had kids, like most folks, I didn’t give a second thought to whether or not planes had changing tables. I had never noticed them before but just made the assumption that they had to be… Continue reading Changing Tables on a Plane? Don’t be so sure.
