It's been a long, hard day. In fact, it's been a long, hard several days. Maybe even weeks. And when it gets like this, those small tender mercies can be hard to notice. Oh there's happiness mixed in between of course, but with Hubbalicious working such long hours at the shop because we're short-staffed right […] Read the whole post!
You guys will never guess what kind of cuteness is happening in our lives right now! ....okay, you can probably guess because that photo up there is pretty telling, plus I haven't exactly kept it a secret on social media. (*if you aren't following me yet, hello... what are you waiting for?! Follow me on […] Read the whole post!
Aside from one epic fail of a false start right at the beginning of our potty training journey, which I talked about in this post, potty training at our house was super easy. We felt like D showed us signs that he was ready to potty train and we let him take the lead. It […] Read the whole post!
Parenting is not for sissies, I've said it before and I'll say it again. There are days when I feel like I've been bested by a 4 year old and like bedtime just can't come fast enough. But just as quickly as those days come and blindside you, so do the moments that make it […] Read the whole post!

I remember the first time I said that, thinking... […] Read the whole post!

I'm just going to start off with a little honesty - straight out of the gate. This is one of my least favorite topics in the world. I know there are different opinions about mothers working outside the home, or staying home to raise children. But in my ideal world, it's not even a debate. […] Read the whole post!
Every once in a while, D.O. gives us this tiny little ray of hope that he's ready to potty train... and then he yanks it away with such force, that it leaves our heads spinning. We want to him to transition into potty training, and yet most of our friends are telling us that he […] Read the whole post!
