IMG_8150

I know. I *know.* It’s been awhile, and poor Lulu is just a neglected second child, blah, blah, blah. We’ve been busy, okay? Anyway. Lulu is SO 2.  Terrible and terrific and wild and adorable; she is a handful! People are constantly guessing she is 3, not just because she is tall, but because she …

So. Remember last week how I was all “Look at me, rocking this Mommy gig?” Bwahahahaha! I forgot the cardinal rule of internet karma: NEVER blog parenting brags!

Rocking It

So. This Mommy thing is HARD, you guys. Beyond the physical challenges of pregnancy and then functioning like a reasonable human in the midst of torture-level sleep deprivation, there is the sensory overload of being needed and yelled at and clung to and boogered on 24 hours a day.

So. Remember how in a total mom fail moment I probably got us banned from the New City McDonald’s for life? The puking didn’t stop there, my friends. Yesterday evening, we got home after rehearsal and dinner, and Cole complained of a tummy ache before bed. Genius that I am, I sent him to sleep …

Mom of the Year: My Glamorous Day

mother of the year

A few weeks ago, a friend complimented me as “having it all together.” (Stop laughing, Adam.) She went on to ask how I kept everything organized. Less than 7 days later, I missed a meeting with the same friend because I completely forgot about it. Whoops! I don’t have ANYTHING “all together” is what I’m …

Lulu loves Ariel, and jumped on board with the idea of a mermaid party as soon as Cole suggested it when we were brainstorming themes. She sat beside me as I consulted Pinterest and chose her favorite ideas – which she was THRILLED to see put into action for her birthday party last weekend! The …
