Seriously.. HOW?! Since going back to work, I’m finding the balance super frustrating. After having Johnny, I wanted to go back to work but daycare is basically like paying college tuition so that was a hard NO. Babysitters these days want $20-25 dollars an hour – WTF! I remember being paid $7 an hour! At […]Read More How do you manage IT ALL?! Especially in this CRAZY A$$ WORLD.
I hate toys. Yes, I said it, I HATE TOYS. They get everywhere, they are these huge plastic things that your kids will play with for about 2 seconds and then are done with, they crowd everything and get everywhere! SO, do my kids have toys? Yes. I’m not that mean of a mommy… depending […]Read More Keeping all the Toys Organized…
Traveling is SO. MUCH. FUN… except when you have to travel with your kids. Kidding but not really! I can not believe how much STUFF we had to pack. I actually had to go out and buy an extra luggage just for the toys, snacks, toiletries, diapers, wipes, my medicine cabinet, and the kitchen sink. […]Read More Traveling tips with little babes.
Let me just start by saying sleep training is NOT for everyone. If you don’t want to hear your child crying, screaming or whimpering… then don’t do it!

I gotchu! I no longer carry my own personal purse, all my stuff and the kids stuff is […]Read More What’s in my Diaper Bag?
When I was pregnant with Johnny, the last thing I thought I would ever have is a C-section birth. I mentally prepared myself for a “natural” birth. Natural in quotations because lets face it, pushing a watermelon out of your change purse will require all the drugs. Johnny was 2 weeks overcooked. I was completely […]Read More C-Section Mama

Johnny was conceived on Valentines Day and […]Read More Another year
Johnny is in Speech. I used to teach Special Education so when he wasn’t “babbling” or saying words early on, I knew we needed to get him evaluated. At 18 months, he was assessed and lo and behold.. he needed Speech Therapy twice a week along with Special Instruction once a week. It’s definitely been […]Read More His little voice
