Perfectly Imperfect Parenting

Theodore Roosevelt Quote

Tonight on Twitter I posed the questions, "Moms do you want to see perfect representations of motherhood to aspire to or the real ups and downs to know that you're not alone?" While tackling a chaotic situation at our house (which I will share in a later post); I thought to myself, This is what I should be sharing with my readers. The moments of motherhood that are crazy and chaotic and how I manage them. I have spent over the past year trying to "properly" brand my blog and myself, attempting to craft this beautifully themed instagram page, blog aesthetic and how I ... Continue Reading...

Why my Halloween was so scary I called 911?!

Our Halloween night started off a little chaotic, which is to be expected when trying to keep 3 super heroes from running around and doing all sorts of karate moves on each other, a mermaid to stop giving a ballet performance, that you are sure will result in her tail being torn off and a grumpy toddler who woke up from a late nap and was less than interested in putting on a spider man costume.

While I have a few more days of late mornings and less structured days, I try to enjoy them with my kids as much as possible; Lounging around in our jammies, watching whatever movie they choose to watch repeatedly for the day (seriously, how many times do we have to watch the same movie?) but most of all I've been enjoying our big breakfasts. Once school starts it is rare that I have the opportunity to cook the kids ... Continue Reading...

Yesterday, I really wanted to take a trip to Ikea, I am doing some revamping of my current organization system around the house and there were a few things that I wanted to pick up. A drive to Ikea when we lived in Mi would only take me 30mins, now unfortunately, that drive would take me an 1hour and 45mins; while that is still a doable day trip I decided to check out a few local stores and see if I could pick up some of the items I was intending to purchase at Ikea. While taking the kids out for a night of bowling I decided to stop into Kmart and purchase new socks ... Continue Reading...
