Finding Mom Friends is Just Like Dating

Scoping for mom friends has me feeling like I opened Pandora’s box, and I was not prepared for it. Landing the perfect mommy bff has proven to be far more difficult than expected. I’ve been thinking of just dropping a personal ad in the paper. Do people still do that? I imagine that it would read a little something like this; Continue reading Finding Mom Friends is Just Like Dating

A day in the life…weekend edition

My goodness, I have sucked at this whole blog thing lately. All I can say is #momlife. I’m not even going to pretend that I’ve been making an effort to write, because that would be a lie, and, I’m not about that life. However, this past weekend triggered a thought, so figured I’d jump on the opportunity. Continue reading A day in the life…weekend edition

The terrible two’s…

Welcome to hell, folks.  We have officially entered the terrible two’s and it BLOWS!  I swear to you, it came out of nowhere, hit me like a GD ton of bricks!  And coincidentally, my toddler who refuses to speak, decided that now was the perfect time to start saying “NO!”  Weird, right?  For real, my days have been super duper sh*tty, and I really just need to vent.  I’m begging you all to listen… Continue reading The terrible two’s…

Nothing worse than a sick baby..

Correction. There are in fact worse things than a sick baby. Two sick babies for instance.  Teething, virus, who the hell knows. What I do know is that I’m about 2 seconds away from calling it quits.  Hey little humans…SLEEP! I promise it will make you feel better, AND it will ensure that I don’t sell you on the black market while daddy is at work. Continue reading Nothing worse than a sick baby..

Who is she?

Being a mom is hard. Like, really hard. And not for the reasons everyone assumes. Yes, getting little to no sleep the last 2+ years has been an adjustment. Yes, constantly changing diapers & trying to keep up with housework can be challenging. But the hard I’m talking about, can’t be seen. The hard I’m talking about lives inside. The overly critical, selfless, perfectionist, who grows inside any woman called “mom.”  For me, she reared her ugly face after having Wyatt.  I had witnessed glimpses of her when Lincoln was born, but she kept herself hidden until recently.

Holy crap, I did it!!!

Oh. Em. Gee! I can’t believe I am sitting here and typing up my first blog post. This year has been a doozy, and I thought now was as good a time as any to start blogging.  I know I know, every millennial and their BFF has a blog these days, how am I going to set myself apart from the millions of others?  To be honest, I didn’t put much thought into that.  I just planned on being myself, and being 100% honest with you guys.  I hope that my authenticity and transparency is enough to hook, line, and sinker…sink you? Whatever. You know what I mean.  This is going to be a place where I share my stories, my day to day, my real life.  If I have questions, I am going to ask, likewise, if you guys have questions for me, I invite you to ask!  I am here to connect with other moms, soon to be moms, those thinking of having children, heck, anyone willing to read and connect with me is someone I’d like to get to know!
