that you’d like to have a life again?  Take heart- we’re all right here with you.  I often sit and look on in envy at the mommies that have clean houses in their insta. The ones who go out and have a night out, or a mommy-cation. The ladies on youtube showing you around their spotless house,  & you kind of want to knock a planter over just so they’ll experience the slight bit of chaos you have in your life right now.  Just me?  Nah. I know it isn’t so. Just remember, all that?  It’s show biz people.  Show biz.  Also, their kids are most likely over 6 years old, if not- super annoyed with them in this moment.

Real life. It’s messy.  SUPER duper, pooper on the floor or maybe a wall- MESSY.  Don’t let anyone fool you.  Not a soul.  We’re all in this swamp of motherhood together, some of us just sweat less- it’s genetics.  Personally, I’m in the sweaty swass crowd with frizzy hair. Slow clap for yourself loud and proud today- you deserve it.  Try it, very empowering.

Just left grocery store with many people wondering if one of these children were actually my own.

They finally did it, my kids truly embarrassed me. At least 45 people believe I kidnapped one of my children.

My tiny tot declared war. Kicked off her boots, writhed on the floor in her beautiful dress, when I wrestled her into the cart we went through the whole store with the screams of, “let me out of here! You’re hurting me! Please someone get my daddy, I want my daddy!”

From one end to the other, all the way out to the car. My other 2 circled the cart like they didnt know me. My face is still burning, and I’m waiting for police lights to show up in the parking lot.

A global economy

I was trying to talk to the girls about learning a different language, because I found an immersion school I’d love for them to attend. I always regretted we weren’t speaking other languages in school as kids. I was explaining that we have a global economy, etc very important.

Evie let me know she’s already on top of it, she can talk with animals. Lily assured me she knows lots of different voices. She demonstrated by speaking baby, fairy, queen, and monster.

My kids are definitely going to Harvard.

It finally happened.

This morning we left early enough to drop all the littles off at their respective schools for the day, and have time for a quick egg sandwich with JUST E and me. We rarely have a chance to be together, the 2 of us alone, in the hustle and bustle of 3 kids and work.

Today was the day my eldest and I would have a few moments, and I was so excited to ask, “E, want to go get an egg sandwich with mommy before school or shes would you rather we go home and ride the bus?” We all know the answer……duh! Egg sandwiches are our thing. The tie that bonds, our appreciation for a good breakfast sandwich and time together.

But today she replied, “hmmm, would we be late to school?”

“No, right on time,” I replied.

“Mmm, I’ll ride the bus so I can see my friend Sara”



I’ve been sold out for a 7 year old.

They say it goes fast, and I know tonight after school we’ll snuggle, but sometimes “fast” runs up and smacks you in the face when you least expect it.
