Little Lee is 6 months old. 6 months, people! I have been rocking the "I just had a baby" excuse like a champ... I'm pretty sure 6 months ago no longer qualifies as "just". Oops!
I remember when my Big Lee turned 6 months old. I dreaded that day for months (February 5, in case you are wondering. The date is still engraved in…Continue

"Retarded"- I still remember the first time I heard someone use that word and understood what it meant. I was in 5th grade waiting for the bus in front of our little house in Macon, Ga.

He was not exactly popular and he was not exactly nice and he was making fun of someone else at the bus stop (who was not, in fact, "retarded"). But all of a sudden a light bulb went off in my…Continue

Today I'm sharing my 2 year old's "chores". While I don't demand she do a list of chores before she can play or watch Sesame Street, I do encourage her to help me with laundry, dusting, sweeping, dishes, trash pick up, and tidying up around the house.
Okay- let's be honest, most days it feels like Mommy's-chores-gone-bad because I am…Continue

I want to be happy in this season. I want to wear a genuine smile on my face each day and not feel the prick of tears behind my eyes. I want you to ask me how I'm doing and be able to respond with a genuine "Fantastic!" But instead I feel pretty negative and fear that my blog posts push you away because I sound hopeless and…Continue

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
