An Addicting Compliment- The Drug of Choice

I just read an interesting article about Artisan Parenting, referring to Momma-ing as a competitive sport. Sounds about right! With Pinterest, and Facebook, and Instagram; social media has added a tremendous amount of pressure to an already demanding the most demanding of jobs. When did we start using these platforms as make-shift Mommy resumes? And … Continue reading

Renewing the Spirit When Your Hanging on by a Thread

Confession: Last week (the entire week) was one BIG Momma fail. I don’t know if it was lack of sleep, because for some unknown reason my toddler decided that waking up at 5am in party-mode for several consecutive days seemed like fun, or because I’ve yet to have a second to recover from the holiday … Continue reading

The Me of 2013

Cheers to 2013, another blessed year!! The past twelve months have been happy (est) months. Healthy months. Busy months. We celebrated Harper’s 3rd birthday and Aniston’s 1st. We’ve had dreams come true and experienced the magic of Disney. I left the comfort of my job after seven years and began a new chapter in my … Continue reading

Getting to Know Me

My hopeful intention with this little blog is to provide some insight to my girls as to who their Momma really is. I hope that if there is ever a day that they are missing me, or questioning me, or questioning themselves, that they come here and read, laugh, cry, and feel like they know their Momma a little … Continue reading

Confessions From A Hot Mess

As I woke this morning in a puddle of pee (not mine, ha!), next to my three year old, in my bed, it hit me…I am One Hot Mess. I can’t for the life of me keep up with my housework. I try…I really-really try. I recently told my sister that if ever I start … Continue reading

Mother’s Day & A Workout I Hate (Love)

Happy late Mother’s Day to all the Momma’s! I hope it was peaceful and restful, because I know how rare and appreciated days like that are. My Mother’s Day was going beautifully until it came to a crashing halt…literally. And the crash was my Happy Face slamming her happy face into the concrete walkway at … Continue reading

Confession #12

This week has been a struggle. For several reasons, none in particular. Just one of those funky weeks. And I haven’t handled the funk with the most grace. I’ve allowed stress to get the better of me and it has revealed some major character flaws. I will work on that. On a brighter note, stress … Continue reading

Monday’s Mission with a Twist of Confession

Confession: I use the word ‘mess’ ALOT! Too often actually. “Harper, lets go clean your messy room.” “Mommy’s closet is a hot mess!” “Baby, please don’t make a mess.” So much as a matter of fact that my toddler has started repeating it. “Mommy, Sister made a mess.” Monday’s Mission? Enough already! The last thing … Continue reading

Confession #11

I’m not sure how this all started, but I blame the toddler. Hehe! Me and the girls have a secret…When the hubby is out of town or in meetings preventing him from joining us for supper, we turn in to barbarians. We skip the dinner table and fancy meal for a feast of our favorite … Continue reading

Potty Training is Sabotaging My Diet

We’re potty trained! We’re potty trained! Hip-Hip Hooray!! So I’m a little proud…and relieved…I have a few more pennies in my pocket…and I may have gained 5lbs in the process. Harper has been in the process of potty training for months now which means that for months we have had a treat jar of M&Ms to … Continue reading
