I recently told my friends that I quit on tidying up our house.I cannot do it anymore. I quit. I know they say that let our kids be little…so I am letting Ellie be. For parents who got toddlers… I know that deep in your hearts you sincerely understand and you’re slowly nodding your head because you know…you know… what made me quit – tidying up.

UPDATE: Ellie is currently hooked with Boss Baby.
It was a relief! We memorized both songs and lines in Moana and even with eyes closed we know the scenes by heart. Who wouldn’t? We watched Moana and Maui for more than 100 times already.Now that Ellie is turning two, she can easily pick up words and phrases and one of the developments that we noticed is that she is into pretend play and make-believe. Just like Tim (the young boy in Boss Baby). In the story, Tim has a great imagination… Continue

Does potty training ever get easier once you start? My knee-jerk reaction is…HELL NO. However, I have only really been at it with my son, Ryder, for the last month or so, and in some ways things have gotten tremendously easier. We have tried so many times before but he just didn’t end up… Continue

In my life right now, I have two very active toddlers and a 6 month old puppy who is already 50+ lbs. Jason and I have been trying to get out of debt, off and on for the last 3 1/2 years. Of course things happen and every now and then, we go backwards. Right now we are right back in it and working hard. He has been really great trying to pick up any extra shift that comes available to him. As you all know, I stay at home and don't have an income that will help us. If we really want… Continue

I woke up Sunday as if it were any other day, in a whirr of excitement to get ready for church. For some reason I’m just not a morning person, so I wake up with just enough time to shower, get little E ready after he eats and head out the door.
While waiting for church to start, I was talking with Trevor and his sister. She started talking about how her smart phone is so distracting. She’s constantly looking at it and was even thinking of switching to a flip phone.

Momma’s bedtime is a word that use to make me cringe. Even thinking about it being late at night just turns my mood sour. So many issues arise with it, kids not wanting to sleep, waking up too… Continue

I'm annoyed with Valentines day. It just is too dramatic for my liking. The worst part is that it's dramatic in multiple ways. Whether a person expects a thoughtful gift and high level romance or the HATE VALENTINES DAY, IT'S A HALLMARK HOLIDAY.. blah blah person.. Or that you are single 364 days out the year. Yet if on Valentines day you don't have a date, it's some how the worst thing ever?
If you are only affectionate or thoughtful to your spouse 3 days a year. (Valentine's… Continue

I’ve always wanted to decorate my house for every holiday, complete with themed wreath on the door and decor on the fireplace mantel. Why can’t I still do that?? Mostly because life happens. Money isn’t always there to spend on decor for every holiday. I know, I know. I can always… Continue

I blog about motherhood. But sometimes, my blog makes me a bad mother.
These observations came to me slowly over the course of several weeks. I've only been blogging for six months now, but my competitive drive to inflict my writing on the eyes of others, to showcase every funny story or present informative product review videos, sometimes clouds my ability to 'mom' appropriately.…

When I found out I was having a boy, I cried. Not beautiful, happy tears, no. I cried ugly, horrendous tears of mourning. I cried because I was not having a girl. That's right: my baby hadn't even left my uterus, and I was already the worst mother in the world.
Before you can comment on… Continue

Communication. At 28 years old, it's a skill I still haven't even fully developed yet. To expect a baby or toddler to master a skill that most adults haven't completely grasped yet is a recipe for disappointment. In my experience, most tantrums are caused by a toddler feeling like their wants and needs are going unheard. Since the vocabulary of wee ones is still limited, teaching our toddler sign language has saved us (at least several) arm flailing, back arching, high-pitched screeching… Continue

If you’re anything like me, you probably fantasized for much of your life about having a little mini me one day.
Yes, there’d be a partner in the equation, but their genes wouldn’t matter much. Or something like that.
Of course, the reality of parenthood is that our…

I haven't had a shower today. Or brushed my hair. I was convinced I would make it to CrossFit at some point. And I never did. So I've been in full gym paraphernalia all day... With unbrushed hair and unbathed body.
Yes- I went to Publix like… Continue

I have a confession.
I get that same fluttery feeling from appliance stores that most women get from Target. I browse countertop samples, light fixtures, closet systems, and cabinets for hours. I look at molding and backsplashes and flowers. Then, right before I leave I visit my most favorite section- the paint samples....and I collect about 100 paint chips. (I'm not even going to tell you how long those will stay in my the… Continue
