Celebrating 2 Years

Ah! I can’t believe it’s been 2 years already. 2 years ago after sitting on this for years just waiting for the right moment to start, not knowing there would never be a right moment, I finally took the leap. A leap I will never regret. The only thing I regret is not starting sooner.Continue reading “Celebrating 2 Years”

I Didn’t Choose The Mom Life, The Mom Life Chose Me

Literally the mom life chose me. I’ve talked about it before, I never wanted to be a mom. Changing diapers, puke, snotty noses – No thank you. I’ll pass. Obviously the universe had other plans and obviously I was a dumb kid that made dumb mistakes and life started early. I wouldn’t change a thingContinue reading “I Didn’t Choose The Mom Life, The Mom Life Chose Me”

I Paid My Son For Grades

2020 was a rough year. My kids, along with basically the whole world were ripped from their schools and thrown into distance learning. We learned how to distance learn and we still are distance learning as of currently. It hasn’t been easy, but we’re managing.

Summer Days Are Flying By

This summer has been unlike any other. With the pandemic looming over us, this summer hasn’t really felt like summer. I’d like to say we didn’t let it slow us down, but it definitely has. Other than a few partially successful day trips with some places we intended to visit closed and swimming, we haven’tContinue reading “Summer Days Are Flying By”

Not Right Now

Life gets busy. We are always working, cleaning, cooking, going to school, running errands, or doing something around the house. After all we’re not just adults, but parents too. That means we have double the work. If we aren’t busy, we are trying to relax for a second if our lives allow it. Sometimes thatContinue reading “Not Right Now”

This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

You know the saying ‘this is why we can’t have nice things.’ It usually refers to kids, pets, or a spouse and something they’ve to ‘ruin’ something in some way. A chip, a break, a scratch, spilled paint, whatever happened. I used to say that all the time. The kids and I are the prettyContinue reading “This Is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things”
