Parties So Awesome, the Police Show Up.

Dear Future Munchie, You are only allowed to ride in the FRONT of police vehicles. Love, Mommy Yesterday, we went to a birthday party that will certainly be difficult to top. The kids ran around the park participating in a “Junior Officer Training Course” that included drone launching (stomp rockets), Cop-scotch, a bubble gun range, […]

Thanks to the Neighbor Kids

Spring has sprung, the weather is getting nicer, and after school our court is flocked with children. We have a good mix of ages and the older kids are great about looking out for the younger ones. It reminds me a LOT of my own childhood… growing up in suburbia. Munchie loves being outside and […]

Sleep Training… Again.

Didn’t we already do this? Yes. Then, we made an epic parenting fail. At one point, Munchie got really sick and did this thing where he stopped breathing when he laid down (terrifying, I know… it was… like… a year ago) and we got soft and started letting him co-sleep again. I KNOW, RIGHT?!?!? Everything […]

My Tinkergarten Village

A super giant picture today – but I really want you to see that comment. From the moment I became pregnant, my experience as a mom was less than the rainbow and butterfly experience I’d hoped for. I feel alienated, like a stranger in my own skin, and then once that little human appeared… I […]

Porta-Potties (because sometimes you can’t be picky)

Hey, when you gotta go… you gotta go. Some people have the luxury of holding their bodily functions until they are in a more convenient and comfortable setting… but in the world of potty training, when your kid says potty… you find a potty (even if that means building one faster than a Lego Master […]

FIRST RUN – Double Bubble Fun Run

Muchie loves to run. He loves his friends. He loves his family. And… he loves obstacle courses! Naturally, this led to our family teaming up with a few families from Munchie’s school and running the craziest fun run I’ve seen for kids his age. From climbing hay bales a couple stories tall and sliding down […]

Potty Training Woes

Notice that sweet two month lag in my posts? Probably because I’ve been living in a constant state of fear… and for good reason. Potty training and a three year old… or should I say… potty training my newly turned three year old who has decided that he is literally going to test Mommy, Daddy, […]

Thriving in Honor of…

I’ve been reading a book, “The Whole Brained Child,” which examines brain development of children, the way our brains respond to stress, and how to turn navigate difficult situations by stimulating various parts of our brain. (It’s not as boring as you might think.) The book uses a fabulous model of how we can often […]

Momma Bish’s Chocolate Fudge Skinny Brownies

Looking for a delicious brownie recipe that tastes just like the real rich and fudgy thing? Look no further! My sister and I perfected this recipe nearly 20 years ago and people have been asking for it ever since. Each 2″ x 2″ square has roughly HALF the calories, fat, sugar, carbs, etc of a regular brownie […]
