I see you mama

I see you. I see you working all the time... being a mama, a teacher, a full time worker, a wife, a communicator, a good friend. I see you trying to be the best.

Why I love Amazon

I am obsessed with Amazon, Target, Costco, and Starbucks. If that doesn't say basic mom, then I don't what does. I lived at Target and Starbucks all summer, went to Costco almost every Sunday and shop on Amazon at least once a week. It's a MAJOR problem. You know it's bad when your 3 year… Continue reading Why I love Amazon

Teething is a Bitch/Get off the Boob

Holy Meltdowns

Does your toddler go from 0-200? My 3 year old does and I constantly go back and forth between wondering if I should be worried, to NO, this has to be normal, right?! My husband is a firefighter and I'm a full-time teacher. It's now summer and I am off from my job, although still… Continue reading Holy Meltdowns
