I have always had fair, sensitive skin. I burn really easy, never tan, and literally everything gives me hives. At 33 though, it’s something I’m totally used to. I know which irritants to avoid and I wear my sunscreen! Unfortunately, my skin has changed pretty dramatically as of late. My preggo hormones have decided to…… Continue reading My Pregnant “Glow” Is Actually A Rash
It’s a tale as old as time… I spent all day picking up toys, reorganizing, and cleaning – yet, the house still feels trashed. A mom’s work is never really done – We all know that. There will always be mess. There will always be laundry. Homework. Dishes. Bath times… As a SAHM, I’m pretty…… Continue reading The Untold Truth About Nesting
You know what I hate about being pregnant? Everything.

8:00 am – I very reluctantly roll out of bed. I don’t need to brush my hair or do makeup because I already know I won’t be leaving the house today. The sweatpants I wore to bed will do just fine until at least mid-afternoon. 8:15 am – I, hilariously, use Alexa to play “The…… Continue reading A Day In The Life Of A Pandemic Mom

The Cuyahoga Valley Scenic Railroad offers train rides to the “North Pole” and a visit with Santa every holiday season for some pretty…ahem…”affordable” prices. Can’t put a price on magic? Think again.…… Continue reading Why The Polar Express Ride Your Town Offers Is Bullsh*t
Ten minutes I’ve been home from taking my two oldest to school (yep, they’re IN school), and my dominating thought as I look around the house is, “OMG, I need to clean this hell hole!” I’m sure the house isn’t in as much dissary as I imagine it to be, but nonetheless, this is where…… Continue reading My Beautiful Chaos
While you guys are SO concerned about the President taking off his mask the second he entered the White House yesterday, I am plagued with a much more complex and burning question – Why the HELL is Trolly the ONLY means of transportation in Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood? And why is there only ONE Trolly? And…… Continue reading Distracting From The Pres – The Binging Way
So, there’s this “viral” post going around on social media about moms and self-care. It reads: Cleaning your house without kids is not a break. Showering is not a break. Grocery shopping alone is not a break. It’s chores and basic hygiene but mothers are supposed to be grateful to do these things that literally…… Continue reading Combating Mom Burnout And WHO To Blame
Hello Friends. How’s your week going, so far? Mine? Glad you asked! My two-year-old decided yesterday was a great day to scare the shit out of me! It was mid-morning.
