Worried Pink

We were in the bathroom staring at two pink lines on the counter, both in complete shock. We just celebrated a first birthday and discussed trying for a sibling... in the future. The shock remained until our first doctor appointment. The ultrasound tech moved her wand for too long. We'd been down this road before.… Continue reading Worried Pink

This One Time in the Car Rider Line

First, to all the teachers and staff standing outside before and after a long day in all types of weather helping these kids get into school and home safely, you're awesome and we appreciate you immensely! The car rider line is the highlight of my days now. According to my husband anyway. He says when I tell him… Continue reading This One Time in the Car Rider Line

Mama Juice

I came across this poem I wrote several months ago, so guess it's time to share it! First, a little background. I've always been a big advocate of breastfeeding.

We have outlet covers, door guards, magnetic locks on… Continue reading It’s Just the Angle, Right?

8 Things I Wish I Knew Before My Kid Started Kindergarten

I should start by saying we are only a week into school. I fully realize my list will expand as the days go on. For now, these are the things I didn't realize or expect would happen. Also, I should mention this is our first experience in a school, so I'm completely clueless. Maybe there… Continue reading 8 Things I Wish I Knew Before My Kid Started Kindergarten

Hold the Flush

Let's talk potty training and automatic flushing toilets. First of all, my hatred for public bathrooms goes way back. It's one of those things that will forever haunt my mind and dreams. For years I had recurring toilet dreams. The stall door was too short, the toilet overflowed while I was on it, the walls… Continue reading Hold the Flush
