My Last Summer

This may sound a little morbid, but this summer is hitting me really hard- the last summer of me. The last summer that I don't have to worry about my kids because they are still in daycare. The last summer I can sit on my unicorn float and read 3 books and day drink without… Continue reading My Last Summer

No more guilt

I remember when I had my first baby, I want to spend every second with her. I cried my eyes out for days and hours when I sent her to daycare for the first time. I actually hated everyone at work.

I’m a better teacher than a mom

I had a meeting today with a family who I feel very connected to. I can't always say that about all of my families but I feel very connected to this one in particular.

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

The Summer of Me

This was the best summer and I feel a little guilty saying this because a lot of the summer I spent with me, myself and I. My kids went to daycare full time because we still pay, I worked summer school for a month, and the rest of my time I spent at the pool… Continue reading The Summer of Me
