Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Dinner With Children: Cruel and Unusual Punishment

Let’s talk about my least favorite part of parenting: DINNERTIME If your household is like mine, the third meal of the day (following 32 snacks) is an absolute shit show. It doesn’t matter how far in advance I prep dinner. Somehow, just scooping food from a crockpot onto a plate becomes a harrowing ordeal with… Continue Reading

33 Reasons My Child Got Out of Bed

33 Reasons My Child Got Out of Bed

It’s 8:35pm. The house is quiet. I just switched the TV channel from Disney Jr. to HGTV. My grown-up snacks are already out and being consumed – wine, ice cream, potato chips. The children are snuggly tucked into bed. I’m just about to start some chores (check Facebook, vent about my day via text message with my… Continue Reading

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

When Your Child Won’t Shut Up

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 3/4}

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 3/4}

My little guy Owen has been busy these past three months acting like a typical three-year-old (i.e. crazy spoiled tyrant). It’s hard to fathom that in three more months he’ll be a four-year-old. Even though he drives me bonkers on a daily basis (and by daily I mean every minute of every hour of every… Continue Reading

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 1/2}

Owen’s Quarterly Update {3 and 1/2}

Another three months have gone by and it’s time for Owen’s update. Where to begin? Owen does everything with so much GUSTO. It’s exhausting and adorable all at the same time.

Cards for Valentine’s Day Written The Toddler Way

Cards for Valentine’s Day Written The Toddler Way

As I’m picking out and planning Valentine cards for this year’s February 14th lovefest, I thought to myself “What would my child’s real Valentines message be for his preschool friends?” I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t give cute little Pinterest-crafted cards with clever sayings (“You’re toad-ally cool, Valentine!”) and coordinating non-candy gift (plastic toy jumping frog).

Bathroom Break: Daddy vs. Mommy

Bathroom Break: Daddy vs. Mommy

Recently we were talking about going #1 and #2 during a family dinner with my sisters and parents (totally normal discussion, right?). One thing could be concluded from this conversation: Whoever came up with the terms “restroom” and “bathroom break” was clearly a man. Yep, there are some distinct differences between a dad using the… Continue Reading
