These are the Days of My Life.

These are the Days of My Life.

My favorite days are the days when we don’t leave the house. When we all stay in our pajamas, and if we need to change due to a science experiment going a bit bonkers  we just change into more pajamas. There is in hour in time where the costumes burst out of their toy chest. A chase ensues around the…

Maybe it could Stay Summer just a little Longer?

Maybe it could Stay Summer just a little Longer?

School is a week away! For every god awful please start an iv line full of vodka day there has been this summer there were more of  those days that the sun seemed to be shining from inside my house. OG will get on the bus, walk into his class room, and start his elementary school journey. His first year…

Why does this Matter?

Why does this Matter?

I am a fan of this whole boys embracing girls stuff era. I like that we are not being harpies about gender. The unfortunate part of this move towards androgyny is the boys will now be forced to suffer the dreaded cattiness of  fashion comparison. The ball keeps on rolling toward a world full of shit that doesn’t matter. The…

Profound Thoughts on Sunflowers.

I love sunflowers. I love the way the orange and yellow combine to make a near perfect color. The way the center looks like the perfect place to see a honey bee keeping the world alive. Sunflowers are about the only flower that can make my heart ache with sadness when they die. They get so sad. The once cheerful…

Small Changes Still Make a Difference.

Small Changes Still Make a Difference.

I love my Fitbit. I am really good at taking steps. Most weeks a group of us do a work week hustle. The point is to see who takes the most steps in a work week. This week has been a tight race for first. Yesterday OG had his first grade meet and greet. After wards a group of first grade…

Why Questions and Life Lessons.

I learned something very valuable from this years birthday. I learned that blogging is self care. I have this aversion to writing. Like I was always meant to do it, but it seems so scary. I tell myself a million excuses as to why I just can’t simply sit down and write. I have no time. I use the word like…

The Dawn of the Age of Pinterest

 I love Pinterest. My heart beats with admiration every time I see one of those bento box lunches where the rice has made itself into some fun sort of animal. Even though I smile every time I see some really fun food shaped into a smile in a kids lunch box I can not free form rice into a masterpiece….

 Let me say that it is my Birthday week so posts might be a touch on the choppy side. I am sorry if you miss me, but absence does make the heart grow fonder right? Today I am heading to the beach solo with one of my favorite friends. No kids. Just two leo ladies soaking up some sun, on…

Yep. I Went There. “Police Brutality”

Yep. I Went There. “Police Brutality”

Yesterday a friend came over and  we were sitting on my sofa chatting about life. She asked me what I thought was going on with all these Police brutality cases. I try really hard not to watch the news especially the ones with videos of some poor woman’s child being murdered, so when my friend told me about the unarmed…

Sleep Fighters are a Real Thing.

Sleep Fighters are a Real Thing.

 I read an article once that said babies do not fight sleep. It was a real life Doctor who said this. He said that babies do not fight sleep. They just  do not know how to sleep. Ummmmmmmm wait. You’re telling me that my baby who will brush his hand over his eyes non stop when he is on the…
