Riley Chat.

November 14, 2017

Tweet Lately, Riley has been turning up the cute factor. Especially when it comes to his future baby brother. If you follow me on Twitter then you’ve been privy to some of Riley’s funny anecdotes, but I figured here would be the perfect place to share some of them as well, so here goes. Baby […]

Roaring Halloween Nights.

November 2, 2017

TweetGuys, Halloween with a toddler is no joke. Actually, scratch that, it’s a huge joke. It’s negotiation. And it’s reassuring your kid that everything out there is “NOT REAL.” And it’s candy bribery. And it’s eating all your kids’ candy when they’re asleep. And it’s wearing matching costumes because you can and because you not […]

Halfway 2.0

October 27, 2017

Tweet So here we are, already halfway through this pregnancy. I have no idea how that happened. And it still hasn’t totally sunk in that it’s really happening.

Tweet In the past few weeks Riley has woken up with nightmares. Poor kid, there is literally not much I can do for him except hold him and snuggle him and help him get back to sleep. However, so far when I’ve gone to comfort him, he’s greeted me with the following proclamations: “MOMMY, WHERE […]

On Loss.

October 17, 2017

TweetA week ago Monday my grandma passed away at the age of 104. She would have been 105 this Friday. So needless to say, last week was a weird one. I saw her the Sunday before she died and basically just spent an hour holding her hand while she slept. I didn’t really even say […]

Oh Right.

October 5, 2017

Tweet I’m seventeen weeks pregnant and every day kind of feels like 50 First Dates, where I wake up and have to remind myself that this is really happening. It’s weird. You’d think I’d remember that I was pregnant. And you’d think I wouldn’t have to double check every day that I didn’t make it […]

Strike a Pose.

September 26, 2017

TweetGuys, I did a thing. A few months ago I randomly won a boudoir photo shoot. For a long time I really hesitated as to whether or not I’d even go through with it. I am not a sexy person. AT. ALL. It’s like a running joke that I cannot do “sexy” faces or “sexy” […]
