Son, You Don’t Need To Change Your Name: An Open Letter To My Kindergartner

Dear Dominic, I was so excited to pick you up from school today. All day long, I thought about the adorable outfit you picked out to wear and I couldn’t believe I didn’t get a picture.

When You Receive Tender Mercies

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!

Why I’m Letting My 4 Year Old Play Football

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.

Having An Only Child

Over the course of the year and a half that I’ve been blogging, I have noticed a couple recurring themes within my posts. One of the most common, is that my life has taken me on a completely different path than I ever could have expected. In many ways, it’s been incredibly difficult. And in just […] Read More

My Son Disappeared, And It Was The Worst Moment Of My Life

I know the title of this post sounds dramatic. That’s why I chose it. I have been through cancer, chemotherapy, multiple surgeries, and Crohn’s Disease, so I’ve got some experience to pull from. And I can honestly tell you: believing for what seemed like an eternity (but was probably only like 3 minutes) that my son […] Read the whole post!

Sometimes, Having Roommates Is The Bomb.com

Have you ever had roommates? Did you have a good experience? I’ve had good and bad experiences. As a married woman with a family of my own, it’s easy to forget the days of living with roommates and the inevitable gamble you take when choosing one.

When Your Kid Is NOT Ready For Potty-Training

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!

Our First Austin Thinkery Visit!

We’d been to the Austin Children’s Museum a couple times, but had not yet visited the new Thinkery. I really meant to buy the membership early when they had it discounted, but totally forgot. I know you’re shocked. Anyway, we headed out there today with some friends and Dominic had a blast! So, we thought we’d give […] Read the whole post!

Photo Journal: Spring Is In The Air!

Spring doesn’t start until March? Pfft, please. Not at our house… I don’t need a groundhog to tell me when Spring is coming or a calendar to alert me that it’s here. In our world, Spring starts whenever we get out and go play in the woods (or as “woodsy” as Texas gets) for the first time. Today […] Read the whole post!
