The Chillest Party in Town

For the past eight years, every birthday party we’ve had for either of our girls has taken place right here at our home, usually in our back yard.  From ponies to homemade bubbles to ice cream sundae bars and even a reptile show, we’ve done it all.  While I wouldn’t trade those sweet memories for […]

What is the Sober Cookie Challenge™? When my friend Jodi MacNeal told me the idea of the Sober Cookie Challenge™, I did not like it.  Jodi is the Creative Director at Desert Rose Recovery – a faith-based drug addiction treatment program in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.  The challenge?  To promote understanding and empathy for those […]

Mommin’ Ain’t Easy (but it Also Ain’t Real)

“Mommin’ ain’t easy.” – All moms, everywhere. I’m not sure who first said these words, but I think they’re wrong. “Ain’t easy” is an epic understatement. Mommin’ is different level hard.  Keeping one or more tiny humans alive is hard. Keeping them alive, though, is just mothering. Mothering and mommin’ are two totally different concepts. Mothering means you […]

Finish Your Cereal. They’ve Got This.

Last week I had a bit of a meltdown.  Probably more accurate to say temper tantrum.  I was overtired.  I was frustrated.  I was feeling sorry for myself over all the demands that life, work and my family placed on me and “my” time.  So, I did what any reasonable mama blogger would do. I […]

Saying No Mo’ to FOMO

FOMO = Fear of Missing Out. We missed a pool party.  I didn’t forget.  I didn’t miss the date on my calendar. I didn’t have other plans. I just decided not to go. Today the girls and I spent most of the morning in our pajamas.  We watched Moana on the laptop while they drew […]

I love my life, so why am I complaining so much?

I am literally living the life I dreamed of for over a decade.  Great kids, great husband, great job, beautiful home.  So what the heck am I complaining about? “Ugh, my little one woke me up in the middle of the night last night and now I’m exhausted.” “Do I really have to plan another […]

An Open Letter to you and your Jugmental Stare

I’ve never written an open letter before, and quite honestly the lady to whom mine is written probably a) will never read it and b) wouldn’t realize it was directed at her if she did.  However, I’m a little ticked, and what better and more mature way to deal with my anger than to share […]

Relaxing my way into Mother’s Day

When you’re a mom, especially to younger kids, the weekends tend to lose a little bit of luster. Saturday mornings are no longer about luxuriously sleeping in (or sleeping off your fun Friday night). Gone are the days of brunch with the girls, relaxing poolside with a good book, and spur of the moment date […]
