Time With One of My Sons

When you have multiple kids,  it's nice to get a little time with just one.  Riley had a mid-morning dentist appointment today, then rode with me on a few errands.  It was a beautiful day so we drove around town with the windows down loving the way the "wind blew (our) hair".  He wanted the… Continue reading Time With One of My Sons

Counting Toddler

My sweet 27-month old is counting now from 1-10. He was lying down for a nap and I was trying to pretend I was already asleep. I was so surprised to hear him counting!! I feel like kids today learn so much faster!!! I would say "he is so smart" but then he would run… Continue reading Counting Toddler

Baby + Menopause = I ain’t got no brain

I am not alone when saying that during pregnancy I felt like I was playing both parts of Dumb and Dumber.  The journey is real.  Cognitive problems like trouble focusing and remembering things, confusion, reading difficulties, and forgetfulness were common place for me, especially this last time around.  This phenomenon has been rightfully called "baby… Continue reading Baby + Menopause = I ain’t got no brain

There isn't a pantry shelf around that will stand between him and a pack of fruit chews. He is also proficient at navigating bar stools, desk chairs, desks and… Continue reading Captain Climber Gets a Bed

I’m the mommy, not the grandma.

Me and my two little ones.  Having babies later in life is a blessing, of sorts.  I would have been a terrible young mother. Truth be told, when I was young I was self-absorbed, putting myself through college, waiting tables and partying my, very much smaller then, tail off.  No time for babies, or true… Continue reading I’m the mommy, not the grandma.

Sweet Baby = No Sleep

Need. More. Coffee. Truth be told, he's not a baby anymore, he's two.   He's not even a terrible two, but I'm certain that will come.  As moms know, anytime you have a little one a good night's sleep is sometimes just a bonus.  I don't get many bonuses.  My sister-in-law is a year younger than… Continue reading Sweet Baby = No Sleep
