I have three children, ages 8, 7, and 3. I truly thought I’d seen it all in regard to pregnancy. I’ve been through it enough times, after all. I’ve experienced swollen ankles, growing feet, back pain, heartburn, rashes, stretch marks, Placenta Previa, an emergency c-section, planned c-sections… So, when I became pregnant with baby number…… Continue reading I Thought I Knew It All – But My Pregnant Body Just Took Me For A Loop!
My kids are simply amazing. My oldest son is 8 and he’s a million times smarter than me! He dreams of becoming a meteorologist and, honestly, he’s already better at forecasting than our local stations. My daughter is 7 going on 17. She does winged eyeliner better than most adults and her attitude is that…… Continue reading I Hate Feeding My Kids
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
Does your town do a Polar Express-themed train ride every holiday season? Ours does. And let me tell you – it is bullshit. 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
It started today. Distance Learning. Courtesy of Rona. My third grader crushed it. The kid barely needed me. I found myself tiptoeing to his bedroom, where he sat at his desk completely enthralled in his new learning platform. I kept assuming that any minute he would call out for help, but instead, a floor board…… Continue reading Distance Learning, Toddler Terror, And The Comfort Of Saying ‘F’ It
So, I’m in the middle of vacuuming and cussing out my dogs for shredding a shitty diaper all over my two-year-old’s bedroom. I’m glistening like a freaking pig. Trying to decide which room of the house is next for a pantless deep-cleaning. (Yes, I’m cleaning my house with no pants on, because I rolled out…… Continue reading Pantless, Sweaty, & Swearing: How DO I Do It?
Alert! Alert! As it turns out, Summer is not canceled after all! Grab your coolers and sunscreen. Put on your favorite flip-flops (just not from freaking Old Navy) and dust off that two-piece! As states are slowly reopening after the Great COVID Pandemic of 2020 (which isn’t actually over), and homeschooling is coming to an…… Continue reading Summer Is Back On! My Beach Bod Is Not Ready!
Dear Old Navy, Today begins the “One Dolla Holla” flip-flop sale online. As I understand it, the deal is for basic color flip-flops, limit of 5, and your Old Navy/Gap credit card must be the sole means of payment. This is awesome if you have a store credit card. But, hey – some of us…… Continue reading An Open Letter To Old Navy & The One Dolla Holla
My third and youngest child has finally hit that oh-so-magical milestone: The Terrible Two’s. I had almost forgotten what the magic was like. The organic sound of nail-dragging screams. The assertiveness. The impressive ability to turn from happy-go-lucky Little Man to uncompromising dictator in seconds flat… Yep. It’s happening. No one knows when or where…… Continue reading Terrible Two’s Is Happening – Please, Send Vodka
