Bad Mom or #normal

So we're trying to limit the paci. Now that he's had his surgery and on the mend (aside from a bit of hearing loss/speech concerns), we try to only give it to him during nap/bed time.  When he tries to get down off the couch and go play, we take it. He's learned the game…

Momming is hard

Motherhood is hard. It's like no other hood I've been through.  Momming is NEVER finishing a meal, yet wondering how you've gained 10 pounds. Oh yea, it's those candy bars you sneak in your car or maybe the handful of cookies you gabbed because your meal got cold. Momming is accidentally putting formula in your…

The struggle is real 

Today, I've had a day...I want to breakdown and cry.  I'm tried. I'm exhausted. I'm drained. I'm overwhelmed. I'm stressed.  I'm not sure what sent me over the edge today. Maybe being so tired I can't see straight. Maybe seeing my old friend  (the one I've posted about many times). Maybe it's everything. Maybe it…

Chaos

I haven't been on in a while. Life has been chaotic lately.  I got a new, temporary role at my job. Had to move offices. I have to start 30 minutes earlier, so my kids are at day care longer.  I finally got a vehicle. It's by no means a dream car. But it's what…

5 Minutes 

My husband always wants 5 minutes to himself. He'll come home from work and want 5 minutes to himself. Or after an hour or two of playing with the kids he wants 5 minutes to himself. I being an amazing wife, always grant him his 5 minutes...tonight his 5 minutes has been 25...and I was…

Happy Sad

I'm in a weird place...I'm excited to watch lil man grow and learn. It's so exciting to see how proud he is of his own accomplishments. He squeals with delight.  He's got "mom" and "momma" down finally. So I love hearing that!! Of course my world stops when he says it and whatever he wants,…

FML for real…

You guys...seriously...this fucking black cloud... So I'm struggling with paying day care on top of bills. I'm not sure how I'm gonna make it all work. I'm applying for second jobs, better paying jobs...nothing is panning out. I started direct sales to supplement as I can...it's something, but not enough...anyhow, here's where it starts to…

Planning 

Well, I'm planning our last first birthday. I'm putting all my effort in to this one, crafting decorations, making fun treats...the ideas are pouring out. Trying as much as possible to keep the budget small as the summer is a hard time for money with us. But it's gonna be the best.  I've already had…

Another Week

I had another off week. I'm not sure what's going on with me.  Another job rejection. Pain from the accident. Lack of sleep. Frustration over the increase in day care (1 week away). Tired of being let down. The upcoming last first birthday of my lil baby. Too much on my plate. I swear I…

Pictures Can Speak 

Pictures can speak a thousand words...have you ever looked at your eyes in a picture and you can see your pain, your sadness, your misery? Do you wonder if anyone else can see that?  Today, I took a selfie this morning for my business and I looked at myself and thought, WOW, you look so…
