Take me away… to a green island!

I have become obsessed with the color green. I want it everywhere in our house. Everywhere…..   Let me start by saying, I love our kitchen. There are countertops as far as the eye can see. But, in recent weeks, the island has started to bother me. There’s just so much darkness. Black and brown,…

Groceries, groceries, groceries

Lee Thomas has not been to the grocery store since March. And my boy LOVES the grocery store. Or, “the blue store,” as he calls it. This morning, with D already gone for work and Evie still snoozing, I plopped down on the couch beside Lee with my laptop and started building a grocery pick-up…

A LITTLE CRAZY

As we were walking up the sidewalk towards the front door of the kids Daycare this morning, my kids were on a whole other level of crazy. Evie was holding my hand and trying to keep up with her brother, who was a few steps ahead of us. A Daycare Dad, Will, had just walked…

Talking to a Toddler (Pt. 2)

Scene: Pulling into the Daycare parking lot. The building beside the daycare was having a new roof installed. Lee: Hello up there! Lee: (Louder this time) I said, hello up there! Man on roof: Hey down there! Lee: What are you doing up there, my man? Scene: D, Lee and I are laying in bed…

The Crazy Days

I know, I know.. it’s been a while. But ya’ll, I’m tired. Evie is absolutely crazy right now. In the mornings before school and in the afternoons until dinner is served she wants to be on your hip. Lee is going through some type of regression (probably because of Evie) and has just completely lost…

The Great Outdoors

Due to a teething fever of 100.4 on Monday afternoon, sweet Evie got herself and her brother kicked out of daycare for 48 hours (per the new COVID guidelines for daycares in our state). In an effort to get the munchkins out of the house (and ready for naptime) I brought them to the park…

My Wild One

There’s something raw about having children that no one ever warns you about. People will tell you that you won’t sleep for the next twenty years and you won’t be able to go to the restroom by yourself ever again. You’ll be warned about how much food toddlers and teenagers consume and how much pee…

Just a lot

I yelled at Lee this morning. I had Evie on my hip, a spare change of clothes for Lee’s cubby in one hand, a cup of coffee in the other and my purse and work bag on my shoulder. Evie and I were standing in front of the door, waiting on Lee so that we…

What a Wednesday

I love my job. But, some mornings, I feel like I’m making a choice and it isn’t an easy one. Every single working parent alive has felt this way, so I know that I’m not alone. But that doesn’t make it sting any less. Normally, when I drop my kids off at school, they both…

Happy birthday to babe!

Happy Birthday to babe! Happy Birthday to babe! Happy Birthday to baaaaaaaaaaaabbbbbbbbbeeeeee… HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO BABE! In honor of D’s 28th birthday, here are a few fun facts you might want to know about the man who has chosen, of his own free will, to be married to me for eternity: He is the biggest…
