I haven’t been out in 4 years

Ok ok, I've gone out, but I haven't been overnight anywhere, haven't gone on a vacation- which is totally expected with 2 toddlers, and really haven't gone anywhere for more than 4-5 hours? I'm tired. I need to fill my bucket a little more than once a month, if that. And I don't mean leave… Continue reading I haven’t been out in 4 years

Seasons of Life

Life can be so crazy sometimes. I mean CRAZY- kids, jobs, money, balance, trying to be healthy, marriage, etc. How does anyone stay sane? I really would like to know how anyone stays sane these days.

I just need a minute…

I write these blogs for me, but also to raise… Continue reading Mom Win

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

True life: I have a threenager

When they say terrible twos, I think they mean terrifyingly terrible three's- threenager if you will. Most of them can somewhat get their point across, but their vocabulary is still somewhat weak. They almost always know what they want and if they don't get it right away, the meltdown from hell usually occurs. Climbing on… Continue reading True life: I have a threenager
