Leaving Home

Well, I realized something today. I think I've only left my house for a fun activity 4, maybe 5 times in the last 18 months.  I had a baby shower today. I brought lil man, hubby was home. This is the first event I have attended without him. I realized how socially awkward I am.…

Happy New Year

Life has been crazy... As we approach 2018, I have been reflecting a bit, after almost losing my son to poor medical care in the ER. Try not to let the haters and the toxic people have too much space in your head. Take the high road. Don't let their negativity reflect on you. They…

Forever 

It feels like forever since I've written.  Life has been insane lately.   Lil man has been sick again. More than the average "your kid is in day care, of course they will be sick". We had 5 viruses in 4 weeks. Spiking temps of 104+. We had several trips to the ER and finally they…

I hate everything 

I legit hate like everything and almost everyone.  Everyone is stupid. Everyone is selfish. Everyone thinks that they are the only one who matters.  You are not more important than me, your time is not more valuable than mine.  Your space is not more important than mine.  If you are under 18, you are a…

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,…
