My husband and I are big Star Wars fans, and we have shared (err... indoctrinated??) our love for all things Star Wars with our twin boys.  (They probably know more Star Wars trivia then most adults.)  So, when we...
We gave up one of our bedrooms to become a play room. I know, 1st world problems. Something had to give. The toys seemed to be procreating overnight -- Lego bricks being the worst offender. So we created a...
I’ll admit, I have a bit of OCD when it comes to cleaning. My parents never saw the harm in it when I was growing up, because it meant they came home from work to a clean house. When visiting...

Back Away From the Books!

By nature, I am a mathematician. I have lived my life believing there is a right answer for every problem. I am also a scientist, in that I believe that if there is not a right answer, then more...
I kiss my children goodnight every night - long after they've gone to bed, before I call it a night.  I check in on them and kiss them - sometimes just to hear them breathe. Just to see the...
Before our little girl was born, I did A LOT of research. Like most new parents, one of the things I thought about was diapers. I considered the many different brands, the diaper pail, the wipes… Yet, as I...
There's no other way to say it: there are seasons of life that can really suck. I could make you a list of my current struggles (the struggle is real!!) and there are moments when I feel like it's...

Pick a camp, you will either think we were lunatics or geniuses. Last year we moved nine times in 12 months...with a baby. That’s right, I moved as many times as I would normally mop my floors. It was, in...
There is nothing I hate more than waking up to a sink full of dirty dishes. It sets the tone for the whole day and it’s almost as if the dishes are mocking me when I come down the stairs...

I don’t like schedules

I don't like schedules. There. I said it. My daughter has never had much of a schedule. Wake up time, snack time, lunch time, nap, bedtime? Nope. Truth be told, we have "somewhat" of a schedule around our house. Compared to...
Get a puppy, they said. It'll be fun, they said. They weren't wrong, necessarily. That just isn't the whole truth. The whole truth would've included sentiments such as: It'll be hard. It'll be frustrating. It'll be awesome and horrible in the same 5-minute span. That's what...
Dear Advertising Agencies, Marketing Strategists, and Media Organizations, Can you please stop representing fathers as dumb? It's really driving me and all of my fellow mom friends crazy.  I get that dads can have dumb moments, sure, but don't we all? ...
Those of you reading this who actually know me are probably laughing at me already, but hear me out! Marie Kondo's books Spark Joy and The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up, aren't really about cleaning - they're about organizing and...
On an evening not too long ago, I looked at my calendar and realized that a friend who I hadn't spent a ton of time with was scheduled to come over the following morning. I looked around my house...
