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!
Hubbalicious and I had a little debate the other day about whether or not we should get D an iPod for his birthday. He's going to be 5 soon. *I know, it's insane, I swear just yesterday I was feeding him a bottle.* Anyway, so he texts me: "I want to get D an iPod […] 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.

There's nothing I love more than summer time with my family. Being outside, enjoying the weather... it's just a feel-good time of year. It seems like we've been moving for like, I don't know... EVER. So it felt pretty nice this past weekend to just kick back and relax. Our little Dom loves to play […] Read the whole post!
When it comes to parenting, I'm constantly amazed at the things that come out of my mouth. Nothing surprises me anymore. Once upon a time, hearing myself say the sentence: "Dominic, please don't eat whatever bug you just picked up" would surprise me and kinda make me chuckle. I remember the first time I said that, thinking... […] Read the whole post!
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!
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.
