We Are Here

Being married for 10 years is no easy feat. But we are here. Somehow we made it. Sometimes I ask myself.... how?????!!! Anyone who says marriage isn't work isn't trying. Don't you dare compare your relationship to another! I had this vision of who I had to be as a wife. Beautiful, perky, perfect housewife…

Back at One

It didn't hit me until today. When the house fell so quiet. Too quiet. My big boys have been fighting like mad, so I was actually grateful to have them separated in school. But then, as it always does, motherhood comes to bite me in the ass. I cried. I missed them. I held the…

Real Women

Real women. What does that mean exactly? Real as in honest? Real as in no fake body parts?? Real as in successful??? Real as in bitchy, curvy or both???? Sure, I've come victim to it myself. Starving, hair dying, fake tans... doing things I didn't want to so I could impress.... running to or from…

Vacation Mode

I think any parent reading this knows already that a vacation with kids is more like a full time job. With a lot of sweating, crying and sticky stuff. Vacation mode on. Sanity off. Here's to my mamas. Carrying every damn thing but the kitchen sink. Walking for miles pushing an empty stroller while your…

Daily Dose of Awesome

Our very first trip together ever was to Rehoboth beach. I agreed to come along with this handsome guy I had just met while he did some work at a beach house. That's when I knew I had fallen hard. Who else drives 2.5 hrs just to watch paint dry?! Like literally, but I would…

In The Middle

I still remember the day I found out we were pregnant with you. It was April fool's day. Little did I know just how appropriate that would be. My sweet cream in the middle of the cookie. Tony Canols. I cannot believe you are going to be leaving me for full day at school. And…

What I Wanted

What I wanted was a nice long nap at 2 PM. But what I got was a defiant toddler and round 3 of making grilled cheese. What I wanted was a break, 5 minutes of peace. What I got was 7 loads of laundry and sticky floors. What I wanted was some R-E-S-P-E-C-T. But I…

Squad Goals

This one here is for all my "mom friends". Lmao, is that a thing?! It feels like a thing. You know, all those people you met on the first day of school or at the park and you're like, "Oh we got along so well and the kids did too. Will she call me?! Can…

Daily Dose of Cuteness

Summer has been one hell of a rollercoaster so far. I'm not going into details but let's just say ... we're alive. Sometimes you just have to be grateful for that. Life, in a word, is all we've got. So make sure you live it up. These boys have been like tiny little rocks beside…

Tomorrow

I lost my temper quite a bit today. I also never folded that laundry I swore I was going to do, so now it's on cycle 11 in the dryer. I could feel them following me everywhere and I just wanted to scream. Things are beeping, phones are dinging, TV characters sounding off like a…
