Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Detroit!

Hey y’all (Yes, I still have my southern twang, and have “y’all” and “bless your heart” in my vocabulary) !!! We’ve been in Michigan for a little over a week now, and have definitely been through the ringer with toddler adjustments, heatwaves (I thought I was getting away from 90 degrees and humidity??), and organizing … Continue reading Goodbye Atlanta, Hello Detroit!

Parenting is so much more than a love you never knew existed 

Parenting is no doubt one of the greatest things in life to experience. Having children provides your whole body with all kinds of feels you never even knew existed, or at least never knew just how deep those feelings ran. Everyone says it once they have their first child, “I never knew I could love … Continue reading Parenting is so much more than a love you never knew existed 

Bulk buying with kids and decluttering wishes: I don’t even know where to begin

The pollen in Georgia is OUT OF CONTROL and we just can’t take it anymore. I’m in a fog no matter what kind of antihistamine I try to take, and my son has an inhaler because his allergies are so bad he’s been wheezing. This right here is one of the things I am NOT … Continue reading Bulk buying with kids and decluttering wishes: I don’t even know where to begin

Sometimes we just can’t help but to be “that mom”

I was that mom. I took both of my terrorizing little ones to the pediatrician to get my son checked out. To (hopefully) find out there was a reason for his “being an a-hole” attitude he had been expressing, and not just to find out that he was, in fact, just an a-hole. Thankfully, I … Continue reading Sometimes we just can’t help but to be “that mom”

I hated hearing it; now I wish I had known it

I hated hearing it, although I knew it. Sort of. “Enjoy it while it lasts,” “They grow up so fast.” I thought I knew how fast time would fly, and that I was prepared for it, not to mention READY for it. I thought I was going to be THANKFUL for the time to fly … Continue reading I hated hearing it; now I wish I had known it

Parenting “advice” gone wrong

Last week I was finally able to get out and have some much needed girl time with some favorite mommy friends of mine. Girls that I've been friends with since before any of us were mommies, or even married. And just like old veteran military men sharing stories from the trenches in Vietnam, us mommies … Continue reading Parenting “advice” gone wrong

Five things no one warned me about post childbirth

For the most part, it seems as though most women tend to forget - or they try to forget - some of the WORST parts of pregnancy and the aftermath that ensues. Maybe they truly don’t remember, or they've just suppressed those memories so far back in their brains that they can’t bring themselves to … Continue reading Five things no one warned me about post childbirth

Organic and yummy red sauce, or as we call it in the south, spaghetti sauce

So thanks to the plethora of organic veggies my “bro” brought over last week, I got to make spaghetti sauce from scratch (we had a TON of tomatoes). I had never done this before, so I'll admit, I was a little nervous. There's not a much bigger feeling of defeat than 1) when you take … Continue reading Organic and yummy red sauce, or as we call it in the south, spaghetti sauce

The sacrifices we make as parents

In October of 2014, when we found out we were pregnant with twins, my husband and I knew that me going back to work after six weeks of maternity leave just wasn't going to work for us. It also didn't help that I was let go from my job…. two days before our first doctor's … Continue reading The sacrifices we make as parents

Monday again? Try monotony

To the start of every work week it's splashed all over social media. “I hate Monday!” “Mondays suck!” For those in the working world, Monday is a symbol and a reminder that “playtime” is over and it's back to the grind of the workweek. But for a #sahm who doesn't have kiddos in school yet, … Continue reading Monday again? Try monotony
