I am currently sitting in no-name Baby #4s nursery. It’s a legitimate nursery. It has a crib and a changing table and a glider and curtains. Like, a baby can actually call this its room. I spent all week working on it and it’s beautiful and I pinterested none of it. I just had a… Continue reading Friday Freak Out: Pregnancy Edition
Why am I so unpredictable as a parent? Why am I sometimes a fun, patient mother and sometimes a grouchy, snappy mother? Why can I sometimes lay my head on my pillow at night feeling like I did my kids right and sometimes, with tears in my eyes and resentment in my heart, I just… Continue reading Being a Human is Hard!

I 100% do not care about other women’s parenting decisions. No, really, I don’t. Let me back up. Some… Continue reading I Don’t Give A Crap
I haven’t updated this in a while. My last entry was about Dane’s birth and now he’s a toddler who waddles around yelling. I haven’t updated partly because two kids rocked my world and partly because I have nothing witty to say. Y’all know I think pregnancy sucks. It’s hard. I feel ugly and fat.… Continue reading Life With Two
