Okay Then.

March 27, 2017

Tweet First of all, thank you. After I wrote my last post I instantly felt a weight lift. Not all of the weight, but some of it. And it was just enough weight to help. Since I wrote that post a week ago, I haven’t cried. I haven’t unnecessarily snapped at Matt or Riley. And I […]

Not Okay.

March 21, 2017

TweetI have a confession. Last week, I was not okay. Not in the least. I broke down crying several days in a row. I was lethargic. I was short-tempered. Everything was spiraling downwards and I didn’t know why. Nothing was okay. I was not okay. Friends and family would ask me how I was doing […]

It’s Okay to Sit.

March 13, 2017

TweetI have a confession to make: Sometimes, I sit down at the park. Not that big of a confession, but one I felt needed sharing nonetheless. You guys. Sometimes I walk Riley to the park and I just want him to play. I don’t want to have to follow him around and monitor his every […]

Tweet Drinking. All the coffee. And wine. But mostly coffee. Watching. Everything. Seriously, my Netflix queue is bursting and my DVR is full.

Sweet & Sour.

February 23, 2017

Tweet You know those Sour Patch commercials where they go “At first they’re sour, then they’re sweet”? Well, I feel like it’s an accurate portrayal of my life now. Or basically my life with a two year old. On Tuesday, I was having a day. I don’t even know what happened or what came over […]

Riley: Twenty Four Months.

February 14, 2017

Tweet You guys, can you believe I have a TWO year old? I can’t. I really can’t. I mean, he’s been two for over a week and I’m still in a bit of denial over here. In any case, I figured it would be kind of fun to do a monthly check-in because two is […]

On Turning Two.

February 3, 2017

Tweet Dear Riley, On Sunday, you’ll turn two years old. How that happened is beyond me. Last I checked, you were still a sleep terrorist who liked cuddles and a wooden spoon and could barely say ‘mama.’ Now you’re a toddler sleep terrorist who loves hugs and throwing balls and is surprising us daily with […]
