school supplies

It’s that time of year again – School Supply Shopping Time! It’s also the time of year we start to see a lot of posts on social media from teachers, advocating for parents to buy things on their lists of school supplies, and from parents, complaining about having to buy things from the lists of school supplies. It makes me …

school year

Dear School Year, Listen, we need to talk. I think it’s time for us to take a break. It’s not you! It’s me. I love you, and you know that. I love how you take my kids for seven hours a day, five days a week. You answer their infinite number of questions so I can get a little break. …

dishes

Keeping a house clean when you have children is no small feat. Of all the things I have to do to keep my house clean, washing the dishes is one of my least favorite. Next to laundry, of course. And sweeping, and cleaning the bathroom, and vacuuming. And we can’t forget dusting. Ugh, dusting is the WORST! Anyway, today we …

breastfeeding

If anyone reading this is pro-exclusive breastfeeding and/or anti-formula, you should probably stop reading now. It’s been over eight years since I had my first child. Breastfeeding was a hot-button topic then, and for reasons beyond my comprehension, it’s still something that is considered controversial and “newsworthy.” Personally, I started breastfeeding my children right away for one main reason – …

pictures

Children today are growing up in a world where everyone feels the need to document every single moment, of every single day, of their lives. I’m just as guilty as the next Mom, taking hundreds of pictures of my children’s “firsts” and trying to capture all of the wonderful adventures we have. But as time goes on, the number of …

mom blogging

It’s been just over a year since I started Mom blogging (ugh… that word still makes me uncomfortable). Don’t worry – I’ll try to avoid words like “blogiversary” and other made up words like, well, like blog! Anyway, in the year since I started this…. thing, I’ve learned quite a bit. The first thing I learned was that the internet can be a vast …

mid-summer

Well, I’ve hit that point in the summer where I’m kind of in a fog and have just about run out of steam. That’s right – I’ve got the mid-summer blues. It’s hot. I’m tired because my kids’ new bedtime is apparently 10 PM, which obviously means that I have to stay up until 12:30 to get in a decent …

minivan

I haven’t posted anything in a couple of weeks, partly due to the fact that school let out. Did you know that kids are very demanding? Over the school year, I had apparently forgotten that little fact, so it’s been difficult for me to carve out some time to write. It’s also due to the fact that my beloved minivan …
