Intentional Presence

Last week, Munchie and I went on a divine little nature walk with some friends and someone stumbled upon a nest of frog eggs. The group of kiddos were thrilled with the find and quickly scurried across the pond on a fallen log to check it out. I honestly didn’t know our kids were capable […]

Te Amo Llamas – Our New School

As parents, we are constantly faced with a myriad of decisions to make on behalf of our children. Some of these decisions are much easier than others. For instance… I honestly don’t care what Munchie wears to school, so long as he’s adequately covered. The decision to dictate my child’s appearance? Like… be clean… but […]

May Your Memories Be Dirty and Stained

Yesterday afternoon, we piled in the car and headed to Mayne’s Farm for some strawberry picking*. As we headed toward the farm it started to sprinkle and as we got closer the drops started falling faster. Now, when you promise a three-year-old strawberry addict that you are going to pick strawberries… backing out of that […]

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, […]

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 […]

Pretty in Pink (Eye)

After a weekend of coddling a kiddo with the icky sickies, a trip to the doctor for a (neg) strep test, and a fever that just wouldn’t quit, my husband gave me the green light on every mother’s fairytale adventure… a childless trip to Costco and Target and quick frolic through the¬†grocery store. (Back off […]

Postpartum Depression – The Struggle is REAL

Staying at home for the first two years of Munchie’s life was an unplanned blessing – but it wasn’t easy. During those years, I watched children from two other families… and I still love those kids to pieces. I wouldn’t change those two years for anything in the world… but something was missing… and I […]

The Day Our Play-Doh Died (and We Made More)

After a week of continuous assault (thanks to that awesome blizzard), my Play-Doh addicted child had finally squeezed the last ounce of life out of his crumbly play clay (which is now resting in pieces at the bottom of our trash can… and under the couch… and in tiny crevices all over the ding-dang¬†house). When […]
