As I unpacked our Christmas decorations, and hung our old treasures on our tree, I noticed a framed ornament holding a picture of Lil’ J’s first ultrasound. It’s one of my favorites. And although that was five years ago, I can’t bare to change out the photo, because it reminds me of the excitement I felt… read the rest.
The other day when we arrived at my daughter’s dance class I told her we were early. “Early?” She said with a confused voice “What does that mean?” I laughed at the realization that she may have never heard this word come out of my mouth in her lifetime… Or at least not often since… read the rest.
Occasionally… VERY occasionally these days, I’ll get a hateful comment on my blog. Even less often someone will say something rude on Instagram, Twitter, or some other form of social media. After watching Jimmy Kimmel’s “Celebrities Read Mean Tweets” segment, I thought I could do my own “Blogger Reads Mean Comments” video, but I really… read the rest.
I started writing this post earlier today and it was pretty straight-forward and happy-go-lucky about Christmas shopping for my kiddos, but as I sat down to finish writing it now I’m full of stress and anxiety because of what happened last night.

The other day I loaded up on a pack of AA batteries yet again. Then spent the next half hour changing the old ones out all of my son’s automated toys. When he woke up from his nap and noticed all of this friends were brought back to life singing and dancing again, he was… read the rest.
I don’t shop for Christmas until after Thanksgiving. It’s a fun way to shift my mindset from Turkey to Christmas Trees. I’ll never forget the Friday after Thanksgiving several years ago when I woke up well before the butt crack of dawn to go Black Friday shopping with my mom and grandmother. We scoped out… read the rest.
