Remnants of motherhood are scattered around my cream “Debbie Does Dallas” leather sofa. Don’t judge me too harshly, it was the floor model and more than half the price of the chocolate one I wanted. A Biddy Baby American girl doll named Rachel, whose black painted on hair is scratched and worn with the love I hoped for her as…

I  sit in the middle of perfect chaos and beg to tuck all of it away in my mind. Nestle  it quickly into the crevices of my soul so I will never forget. I never want to forget these days of following after a toddler monster through the halls of the children’s museum. Breathless, and nervous that he will crash…

Today I felt like a bad Mother. Not for the  typical reasons one might think a stay at home mom would think she is a bad mother. I was a badass stay at home mother today;I baked muffins, made an obstacle course, snuggled up and watched Bubble Guppies, had a lively dance party that included twirling ,and put a ream…

There are going to be days when you want to grab your purse and run away. Who am I kidding, I do not even have a real purse anymore. I traded that in for a backpack, which is a very functional thing when you are hanging out with little kids all day.  You can store away snacks, diapers, toys, and…

OG claims to adore football. He has posters, hats, shirts, foot ball cards for days, and a Nerf football he keeps on his special shelves. Nothing is cuter then watching him cheer for his Dads favorite football team. Even if that team is the Miami Dolphins. Mind you, when a game is actually on he is bored out of his…

Oh man. Last Baby has been giving us a run for our money in the sleep department. The little shit has just been rolling around his crib for first nap, sleeping for an hour and a half for second nap, and getting up every few hours at night. I have no idea what it is. It could be a sleep…

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…
