Empty Cups & Overflowing Saucers

When people first become parents they are so thrilled and picture it as this lovely dream. The baby breastfeeds perfectly from the start, they sleep through the night at a week old, they listen when you tell them something the first time (I almost couldn’t get that last one out without laughing, I’m sorry). Sounds… Continue reading Empty Cups & Overflowing Saucers

Live

The past few days have me stuck in bed feeling horrible, but while I have been feeling like roadkill it has given me some time to think, rot my brain with useless videos, rest (of course), but to also put some things into perspective for me. This forced time to rest has in a weird… Continue reading Live

Photos of me in high school and college with my friends, times from fixing up my house, and watching my children grow… Continue reading Timeline of Life

Bed Sharing

Out of the great need to save my sanity I have started bed sharing with my children. If you know me I swore I would never do this, like every mother out there that says the same thing to one thing or another. Yes, yes get your laughter in, I’ll wait. Done now? Terrific. Whelp,… Continue reading Bed Sharing

Becoming a Mother

To my childhood friend before the birth of your daughter: We have been friends for as long as I can remember. Although we don’t talk as regularly as we used to I’m thrilled we are still there for the big events in each other’s lives. I can’t believe how soon it will be until your… Continue reading Becoming a Mother
