Celebrating the good things

Instead of focusing on the tough week I’ve had (I will be reviewing that later once I have a bit of distance), I decided I am going to be sharing and celebrating the good things that I have been up to lately.

Win with me and Bratz {Giveaway Closed}

Something strange has happened to me since becoming a girl-mom; I’ve fallen in love with all things pastel, pink, purple and plush and I want all the dolls and ponies – ALL of them! You can roll your eyes all you like; I was a tomboy as a kid, but now my eyes light up […]

How many times can the mommy heart break?

As I face the week ahead, my heart is heavy and there are tears in my throat. From tomorrow I start a slow journey to weaning my daughter and I feel shattered over it. As I lie here, breastfeeding my 20 month old to sleep at naptime for possibly the last time, I can’t help […]

Playing catchup ~ 6/9

I feel awful about being so absent, not only here but in every aspect of my life. That one week of the plague and the fact that Charly’s sleep has regressed once again to her waking roughly 3 times an hour has knocked me off my game. But I am slowly starting to get on […]

You are a good mommy

I have “met” some amazing expecting mommies through this blog; I have gotten to interview them and ask them questions and answer their questions and support them and follow the journeys of those that have their own blogs.

5 Ways to keep warm using your toddler

This feels like the coldest winter we’ve ever had; but I’m pretty sure I say that every year. I actually love winter; I like having a legitimate reason to work in my pjs under piles of duvets and never leave the house. But omg the cold; not even blankets, heaters and hot water bottles are […]
