Beanie Baby.

July 19, 2018

TweetEarlier this week when I was skimming through my Instagram stories, a picture of my friend’s baby caught my eye. It caught my eye because she had put two bags of beans on her baby. And my first reaction was “THAT’S GENIUS.” Because it is. If Rhys ever startles awake, I usually can calm him […]

Rhys: Four Months.

July 13, 2018

Emotional Whiplash.

June 1, 2018

Tweet Life with a three year old is exhausting. It’s fun, but it’s exhausting. Lately we’ve been dealing with some extremes. Extreme cuteness when Riley tries to make Rhys laugh. And extreme adorableness when he succeeds. Extreme sweetness when he asks me for hugs out of the blue or wants to be held. But then […]

A Letter from My Little Brother.

May 22, 2018

Tweet Four years ago I wrote my little brother a letter before he left for college. And honestly, I sort of forgot about it. This past weekend, he graduated. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to make the trip to New York but my parents, my aunt, my sister and her fiancé did. And thanks to technology […]
