August 25, 2016

I feel like the only thing I post about these days is baby or toddler related, which I guess that is what my life consists of these days. Okay, I’m going to say something that I’m sure some of you will gasp at, but I really don’t like being pregnant!  Now please don’t mistake that.  I […]

The Ideal Mom

July 26, 2016

I’m sitting here at 7PM covered from head to toe in a unknown mixture of sweet potato, almond butter, and snot. Thankfully, John is putting Grayson to bed, so I find I have about 20 minutes of “quiet time” (as I hear Grayson screaming from downstairs).  My emails are out of control, my blog domain […]
