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

Body Image and Beauty

Developmentally they will get there in their own… Continue reading I need you

Burn out, Appreciation, and Grace

One of my friends was talking the other day about being exhausted, not just sleep exhausted but how everything seems to take so much more effort after kids. Maybe it’s from having to herd kids around all day? Maybe it’s the not getting constant sleep to make up for what happens on the daily? Maybe… Continue reading Burn out, Appreciation, and Grace

Perfect Parents & Bad Mom Days

What is a perfect parent? Excuse me for a second... BAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Oh wait, you’re serious? Well my friend the answer is none. Not a damn one is perfect. Behind every parent is a mountain of screw-ups. My oldest will be three next month and I have made enough mistakes to last a lifetime and it’s… Continue reading Perfect Parents & Bad Mom Days
