9 Months of Evie

Evie is 9 months old now. Though, actually, she is closer to 10 months at this point. A friend of mine came into my workplace last week and mentioned that I would be planning a first birthday party soon. The tears were stinging my eyes before I realized they were there. My Evie. My sweet…

One-man swat team

Kids. They keep you on your toes, don’t they? Lee is in a little phase right now where he is afraid of everything. He heard a sound in the bathroom last night and wouldn’t go in until D went and checked it out. He randomly tells me that there are monsters in his closet, behind…

Decade Roundup

“I have another friend who has a Video Blog and she did a decade roundup, you should do one of those!” said my only friend who gives me blog post ideas. I mean, I don’t remember what I had for lunch yesterday, but sure, let’s see how this goes. 2010: Junior in high school, I…

Ladies and Gentlemen..

We have a three year old! Lee turned three on Saturday. This is a fact. This is a fact that I did not accept until a few days later. How could he be three? How is that possible? My little nugget. The itty bitty seven pound and thirteen ounce baby man I met on a…

Mom brain on a Thursday

Mom brain. You hear about it. You make fun of your fellow moms about it. But then.. then, it happens to you. D was duck hunting this morning, so Lee and I were on our own getting the household up and running. Lee joined us in our bed pretty early this morning. He is starting…

Let’s hear it for the Dads

We need to give Dads more credit. The good Dads. The hands on Dads. The Dads who get in there and change the diaper. The Dads who nudge you out of the way and take over the dishes. I was standing in the front hallway of the kids daycare this morning, quite possibly asleep on…

Thanksgiving Week in review

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Actually, we had a wonderful Thanksgiving week. Here are a few of the highlights: 1. New carseats!! Lee got a new carseat and Evie inherited Lee’s old carseat in each vehicle. We had quite the operation going on. Also, on the same day, we had gravel delivered and D made…

Parking lot panic

I was “that mom” this morning. I was the mom in the Daycare parking lot trying to teach her kid a lesson. You see, Lee has this new thing that he likes to do… not listen to me in public. Like this morning, when I got him out of his carseat, I told him to…

Midnight Musings

(**UPDATE 11/22: It was just a bout of food poisoning. Back to normal now!) I’m tired, I’m so tired. Its 1:30 A.M. and I’m sitting on my bathroom floor, waiting to see if I am about to get sick again. I’ve been here for a while. Trying not to make too much noise, trying not…

Six months of Evie

Evelyn is six months old today. And I am not okay. I mean, okay, that’s dramatic, but I’m just so… surprised. I feel like only two weeks ago I was waving positive pregnancy tests in D’s face, dumbfounded. For about a year, I did not think I would be able to have children. But then…
