An open letter the lady at the library who probably thought I was crazy

A cute story about an adorable, mischievous, exhausting little boy.

Hi Lady, I’m sorry I don’t know your name. I didn’t even take a moment to ask you or apologize for the fact that my son whacked you with a pencil… Or at least that’s what I assumed happened after seeing the disgusted look on your face. I tried to act like I didn’t see […]

I’m ready to be done breastfeeding… Forever


I’m very proud of myself for having breastfed my daughter for 17 months, and my son at this point has been nursing for 15. Part of me is sad to be nearing the end of this motherhood experience, but a greater part of me is feelin’ all “see ya!” Photo by Rebecca Loren Photography. The […]

Disney World vs Disneyland: He says/ She says

Which Disney-

My husband has been promising Lil’ J we’d go to Disney once she turned four. She hasn’t mentioned it since her birthday but I’m already making plans in my head.

10 years celebrating with stars and stripes

Patriotic family

Independence Day 10 years ago I had just started dating my husband. We’d been dating for 11 days to be exact. He invited me to watch fireworks with his family and I was already head over heels in love. My stomach flipped when he reached to hold my hand. Four years ago I celebrated the […]

5 things I’m obsessing over lately

I mentioned a couple posts back how having family around changes so much. What I failed to mention is how much it keeps me busy, entertained, and away from my blog. It’s good and bad. Good cause I’m having IRL (in real life) fun, but bad cause… Well, I love this space for documenting my […]

My little girl is 4!

I probably mentioned this a little bit ago but I love the shocked look on people’s faces when I tell them… My family moved to town! Yes, MY town. Like, they’re less than two miles from my house. My mom and two of my sisters are now basically my neighbors. Since I had my son […]

Resisting the urge to become a dance mom

Ballet class

When I was growing up I loved watching ballerinas dance around in their tutus and tights. They looked so elegant, so graceful. Like many little girls, my daughter also fell in love with watching ballerinas. She’s been asking me if she could take classes for about a year. Finally, we caved, and signed her up […]

More hair decisions


When washing my daughter’s hair in the tub her curls stretch down to her hips. My little sister (my hair assistant for the night) stood by me, and commented. “Her hair is SO LONG,” she said. Yea, and she has a lot of it. Our hair routine has changed since I wrote it years ago, […]
