A new (weekly) section of the blog where we chat like girlfriends (cause, duh, we are) about what I “freaked out” about this week. I had explosive diarrhea at the donut shop this week (TMI? Yeah, what else is new?) as Dane yelled “Mama, why you poo poo? Mama, why your poo poo STINKY?” loudly enough for… Continue reading Friday Freak Out: Poop 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!

Teenagers think they’re invincible. I remember learning in Psychology 101… Continue reading It CAN Happen to You
After Dane was born, I had a conversion. If you’ve read my blog before, you probably already knew that, but what you might not know is that NFP was one of the hardest parts of that conversion. During that time I read alot of books. I wanted to learn and read and soak up as much… Continue reading NFP is Stupid (and Smart)
