As I Send You Off to Preschool

Trust me, I know “sending my baby to preschool” posts are a dime a dozen. I have read and loved so many over the years. As I process this big step with my first born and prepare to send him to preschool in a couple of days, I am flooded with emotion. So, I understand why this is such a common topic. The contradiction between wanting our babies to stay little forever Continue reading

Dear Soccer, I Win!

Dear Soccer,

The rumors you have heard are true…I don’t know a damn thing about you. You see, this mama played just about every other organized sport out there, including collegiate volleyball. But, you? Soccer? No, not so much. Look, it’s nothing personal, it’s just the truth. Yet here we are, forced to be friends all because Kiddo A has decided to give you a try.

I have to admit, when I hit “submit” to register my little guy for your team I felt Continue reading

Dear Village

I truly agree with the sentiment, “It takes a village to raise a child.” While Seano and I are the primary caregivers, we have so much love and support surrounding us and participating in N’s rearing. I say “thank you” on a regular basis, but I’m not sure if these people really know how grateful we are. So, I wrote an open letter to my village. (I’m sure I did not cover every single person that love and support us in this note, but you’ll get the gist.)

Dear Village,

Sweet, loving, understanding village of mine, thank you for all that you consciously and unconsciously do to make our life so blessed. You are the reason I can claim any form of sanity at any time. Continue reading

A Letter from Leo the Gerbil

Before school let out for summer, Daddy D agreed to bring Leo the Gerbil home from Kiddo A’s class. Kiddo A and his buddies have loved caring for this furry critter. We also think Leo has adapted to his new surroundings nicely. Leo recently asked if he could let the other children from Mrs. Hyde’s class know how he is doing. Naturally, I obliged, and have turned the keyboard over to our temporary pet gerbil so that he can give his own update…

Mommy Juice: Strawberry Lemonade Spritzers

In the summer, I’m always looking for refreshing, delicious drinks. I have a few favorite summer cocktails but this summer, being pregnant, I’ve been determined to find a few mocktails that make the season feel just as good. I am a huge fan of flavored lemonade and spritzers. So, I figured why not combine them and find the very best strawberry lemonade spritzer to add to my summer drink list. And, what a perfect drink to add to our Mommy Juice Series!  Here’s a little reminder about this series:

We took a lighthearted approach in creating our Mommy Juice series. Along with loving the term, we hope this group of posts will help fellow moms to sit back, unwind, and enjoy a cocktail. We have a deep love for mocktails, as well, so this series is sure to have something for everyone. After all, we absolutely love enjoying a favorite drink with a great friend. So, here’s to you, girl! Cheers! Continue reading

I Hit Your Mailbox: Thanks for the Reminder

So, we had a pretty epic snowstorm here in Wyoming about 4 months ago. (I know, I know, you’re shocked! *Insert sarcasm here.) Even with a lifetime of snow driving experience, I still managed to back into the mailbox of Continue reading

Morning Sickness Tales & Tips

This post isn’t for the faint of heart. Or rather, faint of stomach.  I’m going to get real about morning sickness, nausea and vomiting during pregnancy. I know this is not a glamorous subject. But, according to the American Pregnancy Association,  it affects more than 50% of women during pregnancy. So, it’s worth having a visit about.
