  • Okay Then.

    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 haven’t […]

  • Not Okay.

    I 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.

    I 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 […]

  • Let’s Make the Bed.

    I have always hated making the bed. So much so that most of my high school and college years I purposefully just slept on the comforter so I wouldn’t have to make the bed. When Matt and I moved in together we were mutually indifferent to making the bed. So our bed was constantly a mess […]

  • Sweet & Sour.

    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 me, […]

  • Two Things.

    At the end of every day I say two things to myself: One. High five, self! You kept a tiny human alive. Nicely done. Tw0. Are we raising a good person?   So you’d think that once kids are past the fragile infant stage, worrying about their overall well-being would fade. Alas, you would be […]

  • The Sweet Moments.

    On Sunday we went to Travel Town. And then Riley took a THREE HOUR nap. It was damn glorious. And I had the audacity to talk about it. And share it. And bask in it. Because Monday rolled around and Riley woke up at the crack of 4:30AM. And did not go back to sleep. […]

  • Outlander Obsessed.

    I have a confession to make. Remember how I talked about my new found love for Outlander? Yes, well it’s still going strong. So much so that I just rewatched season one and restarted season two. For Christmas Matt bought me the Outlander TV show companion book so I wouldn’t have to keep checking it out […]
