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 […]

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 […]

Alligator Adventure – The Highlight of Our Summer

So, here we are… we’ve traveled hours upon hours and finally arrived at our destination – Myrtle Beach, SC. We roll up to the house, where Gram, Aunt Lizzie, and Uncle Austen are excitedly awaiting our arrival. We are all super excited to share in Munchie’s first REAL beach vacation and can’t wait for a […]

Last Minute Basket Boppity

Dude, seriously? It’s like 11pm the night before Easter and you TOTALLY forgot about that ding dang bunny you child is expecting to get treats from in the morning… but you have been too busy working/cleaning/checking FB/etc and neglected to push your way through the crowds this year. Perhaps you literally forgot… or maybe you […]

The Caffeinated Laptop Disaster/Miracle

Nothing says “Happy Freaking Monday” quite like a toddler dumping your (much-needed) cup of coffee directly into your laptop keyboard. I was literally sitting at the table… typing away… when Munchie ran over, quickly grabbed my coffee, and dumped it all over the computer. (Excuse me… since when can he reach that high?) I reacted with […]

Playing Games… and Testing Boundaries

Coming from a family of sarcastic tricksters, we weren’t shocked when Munchie started psyching us out (though I do admit, I wasn’t expecting this from him at such a young age).  From the time he was just a few months old, we started practicing the phrase, “not in the mouth,” which I must admit is […]

Calling All Baby Bumps (and Former Bump Club Members)

Hey MD/DC Metro Mommas – Looking for something awesome to do this weekend? Join me on Sunday, October 12th for Due Date, All Things Baby, at Port Discovery in Baltimore! I’m attending as one of their VIP Mommy Bloggers (whoop whoop… because I’m so famous and stuff) and I really really hope to see some […]

Holy Freaking Fudge Nun Fudge!!!

I freaking love camp. I grew up going to camp. I was a junior counselor at camp. I spent a couple years “crashing” camp (I didn’t work there, but I stopped in every night to eat dinner and spend the rest of the night volunteering). Then, seven hours after my husband and I returned from […]

Summer Camp: Mail and Care Packages

Kids are heading to camp… and they will be expecting mail. Here are some simple tips to ensure you don’t screw up. 1. No food means NO FOOD. Yes, I’m sure little Susie would love a bag of Skittles. But, do you know what Susie doesn’t want? An effing raccoon in her tent/cabin/shelter. Skip the […]

Public Sandbox? Oh Yes I Did.

Yesterday afternoon, we met some friends at the park. It started off like any other park playdate… the boys were in the swings. The other mom and I were chatting about sunscreens that protect you from the sun, while leaching cancer causing chemicals into your skin that will slowly destroy your body. Pleasant afternoon conversation, […]
