Riley See, Riley Do.

July 6, 2018

TweetFirst of all, thank you for all the kind comments and words of encouragement on my last post. I swear, the terrible twos have nothing on these threenager years. But alas, we’ll get through it and maybe I’ll miss it once it passes, maybe. Second of all, apparently all I write about is parenting quips […]

Parenting Anxiety.

June 22, 2018

TweetLately I’ve been experiencing a bit of parenting anxiety. Mostly in the form of “Will Riley behave?

Tweet Welp. Last week this little space on the internet turned eleven and I missed it. It’s the first time I’ve ever forgotten my blog’s birthday and I’m actually a little sad about it. Sad that I missed it, not sad that it’s eleven years old. Admittedly, there’s been a lot happening over here. I’ve […]

Rhys: Two Months

May 11, 2018

Tweet Oh hey there, on Wednesday Rhys turned two months old. And I swear to god it’s been the fastest slowest two months ever. He: – Is oh so very serious. Just like Riley was. It cracks me up. – Doesn’t really love when anyone but me holds him. It’s a bit frustrating and hopefully […]
