Beauty Video: The Daily Face

For Christmas, my parents got us a GoPro camera. I’ve been meaning to use it a million times since then, but it took me a while to get all of the needed accessories and figure out how to actually use it. I’m guessing that the intent was for us to use it with the little guy. But for my first “real” video, I’m giving all of you mommies something a little different: a quick makeup tutorial. I get lots of messages from ya’ll saying you don’t have time for make up or that you don’t know how to wear…See More

Weird Homeschoolers

When folks see me out and about, with the five Minions in tow, they aren’t horribly surprised to discover I’m also ‘one of those weird homeschool people’.I’ve been known to correct them. Yeah, I’m weird, but that existed long before our decision to homeschool.I’d started considering homeschooling when my son, now nine, was a toddler. I knew, that unless aliens came down and fried his brain, he was the kind of kid teachers get medicated over.Or, I’d be getting letters home about medicating…See More

Baby loss, three months later.

This weekend marked three months since we lost our sweet baby girl. Three months that flew by in an instant, yet left me feeling about thirty years older. It’s like that old saying – the days pass slowly but the weeks go by so quickly.Knowing that a week from Tuesday, she was supposed to be born. That’s when her c-section was scheduled for, you know. Tuesday August 19 at 9:30 AM. It’s the day that’s staring me in the face right now. Part of me feels like getting over that hump is like the key…See More

Baby Loss: I can write about it. I can’t really talk about it. Le sigh.

Today was one of those days where the grief just hit me out of nowhere.Ok, not out of nowhere. I had to make some calls because our medical bills have started coming in, and most of them aren’t accurate or haven’t been sent through our insurance or were sent through our insurance and then retracted – ugh. It’s not fun, let’s just say that. And every single time I call to talk to someone, I have to explain my story.I can write about Addison until my fingers bleed. And if I know it’s coming, I…See More

WAHM: How We Found the Right Work and Child Care Balance for Our Family

Back when Rick and I were just married, before Ricky was born, I had this great idea: I was going to work from home full time with NO HELP once we had kids. An infant can’t be that hard to take care of, right? Looking back, I really can’t believe that either of us were so naive to think that was actually going to work. But after he was born, we tried.We tried, and tried, and tried. And surprise of all surprises, it didn’t work.Here’s the thing: no matter how little or big they are, being home…See More

Blogging Better: Why Instagram Should Be Your Bestie – and How to Use it Best

Posted on August 20, 2014 at 5:09pm 0 Comments

If you read the blogging better series, you know that I am a H-U-G-E advocate of using social media to market your blog. I talk a lot about Facebook and Twitter, but it kind of begs the question: what about Instagram?

The truth about Instagram is that it is one of the fastest growing forms of…

Toddler Life: Displaying Artwork

Posted on August 20, 2014 at 11:36am 0 Comments

I don’t know about your kiddos, but my toddler loves to create art. Between all of the pieces he brings home from school and his amazing little weekend creations, sometimes I feel like we have toddler art coming out of our ears. But toddler artwork is adorable, so I really don’t mind.

Now, there’s only so many paintings that fit on our fridge – and on the walls of his playroom – before we run out of room. So we’ve had to learn to be selective when it comes to what we keep. I don’t…

Addison’s Due Date: Another Step in the Healing Process

Posted on August 19, 2014 at 12:10pm 0 Comments

 May wouldn’t have happened, I would be holding a just born baby girl in my arms right now.

My c-section was scheduled for 9:30 this morning. As of last night, it was still scheduled – the hospital called to confirm that I would be there by 7 am. Seriously.

Since we lost her, I’ve had this tendency to make the day before a big post-stillbirth milestone much more emotional than the actual day is. So…
