When my husband and I started dating some 15 years ago, he was big into rock climbing.  And I, I didn’t even know that rock climbing was a thing.  I had never been in a harness...because thighs.  I had never once scaled any kind of wall or rock type surface and I had zero upper body strength.  None of this sounded fun. I was also[...]

Tomorrow is the last day of school for my 1st grader and Begindergartener.  And I am more than thrilled.  I can’t take one more minute in the pick up line (see previous post about my shame here), I can’t check the folder, I just so genuinely could care less about what is in that folder at this point.  And packing lunch, well yes, while so[...]

You know what this world needs more of?   Cheerleaders! Once upon a time I was never a cheerleader.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I wanted to be a cheerleader.  I tried out for cheerleading.  Twice.  However, the cards were definitely not stacked in my favor.  If you don’t know me, then let me paint the picture.  I am not a small person.  For 33,[...]

You will  never finish anything ever again. This is seriously the conversation I have with myself daily. My friend and I were having a little chat about this the other day.  I call it mom-paralyzed.  It’s that moment when you realize you are alone or not needed by anyone and you seriously do not know what to do.  You want to be productive, but something[...]

I was recently shopping with a friend at the local outlet mall {because that’s what moms who are in their 30s do}.  She needed clothes for a trip and I needed an excuse to leave the house. While shopping at a store I’ve been to a ton of times, I see an adorable flowy-blousy shirt that I must have.  I grab it to try on.[...]

I love my kids something fierce, I am bonded and connected with them in such a profound indescribable way.  I have had to come into my own story though, that this - this mom stuff, has not come easy to me. There is a voice in the back of my head that gives me some pause.  Because mothering for me, doesn’t always come naturally.  I’ve[...]

OHMYGOSH the carpool line situation at my kid’s school is so real.  I have heard moms complain about this.  I have seen the posts titled “dear mom in the carpool line”.  I have watched the (what I thought were) over exaggerations of it in movies.   Living it now, in the everyday.  It’s all so. True. And because I am such a patient person, I[...]

I *might* have a bit of a short attention span.   I have looked at my phone just to see what time it is and 5 (20!) minutes later, put my phone down and still have no clue what time it is. My husband can attest to this based on the shows we watch...storyline better move right along, or I’m out. I’m not great at[...]

YOU CANNOT CARE ABOUT EVERYTHING. Say it with me now.  You can’t care about everything.  One more time… I read this in a book or on a blog somewhere sometime ago and it’s funny cuz it’s been some of the most profound reading I’ve done in a long while.  Which is sad too, cuz it kind of makes me feel like I’m lazy or giving[...]

Whoo-hoo it’s graduation season!  I love this time of year, so much reflection on the past, so much excitement for the future. Parties, cake and fried chicken are an added bonus. All of this got me thinking, my youngest child turned 4 recently, and maybe, I have graduated. I think I might have graduated from "young" motherhood... 4 years have passed - newborn, baby stuff,[...]
