Adult Coloring Books For Irreverent Moms, Dads, and Other Humans

Adult Coloring Books For Irreverent Moms, Dads, and Other Humans

Hi all! I’ve been suffering from an enormous lack of motivation lately because of some stuff going on in my personal life that’s got me a little down. If you follow me on Instagram, you know that I’ve been doing a lot of coloring to get my mind off of my #firstworldproblems. Everybody’s seen adult coloring books; they’ve been trendy for the last few years. Everybody also probably is aware of the peace of mind that can come from sitting down for…

Rocking Motherhood Challenge

Hi all! I’m super excited about today’s post, the Rocking Motherhood Challenge. Like, seriously. I was nominated by Meghna Dixit over at Love, Life, & The Little One to join this fantastic challenge to come up with 10 reasons that I’m “rocking motherhood”. Her Rocking Motherhood post is inspirational and heartfelt; I seriously encourage you to read it. It warmed my soul. From there, you can work your way back through a ton of other Rocking Motherhood posts, and your whole day…

Let’s Talk About Childbirth And Recovery

Let’s Talk About Childbirth And Recovery

Hi dear readers! I’m usually all about having a fun time over here, but I want to get serious about something today. Let’s talk about childbirth and recovery. Like, actually talk about it. My Story: What Didn’t Hurt As you know, I’m a mom. Although giving birth itself wasn’t painful for me, I’m familiar with the pain associated with giving birth. When I had AJ, I had an epidural, which was amazeballs. That’s something I would highly recommend. Instead of screaming…

Work From Home As An Independent Contractor For Leapforce

Hi all! I get a lot of questions about what exactly I do since I work from home, so today I want to share some detailed information about it with you (hopefully without violating the non disclosure agreement that we’re required to sign as I have no desire to be sued!). Currently, I am an independent contractor for a company called Leapforce, and I do search engine evaluation for them; that’s my title–“search engine evaluator”. What do Leapforce contractors do? So…

When Does Parenting Get Easier?

When Does Parenting Get Easier?

This is something I asked daily when my daughter was first born: when is this parenting business going to get easier? I asked my mom, my grandmas, my mother-in-law, my husband, random moms on the street, Google–anyone that would listen. “When is this going to get easier?!” It took me a lot of hypothesizing, but I  have found the answer, and it’s where I least expected it.   Hypothesis #1: Parenting gets easier never. At one point when AJ was…

Five Stages of Grief: Laundry Edition

Five Stages of Grief: Laundry Edition

Hi readers! So, this is a mom blog, and while what I am about to discuss is something that any human can relate to, it’s something that has haunted me much more since I have become a parent. I want to talk about laundry. We were out of town from Thursday to Sunday last week. Hubby and I went to Hollywood Beach, and AJ and the dogs went to my parents’ house. Hubby threw a load of laundry in Wednesday…

Ambivalent Reminiscences On My Mom Break

Ambivalent Reminiscences On My Mom Break

Hi all! Today, I want to share with you an experience that I had this weekend that I’m just really ambivalent about: I took a mom break. With the holidays recently, we have all been kind of stressed out in our little family, and I think AJ picked up on that and has been really whiny. That, or it’s a phase. Or she’s just a horrible child. Regardless, I have been feeling a lot of frustration and just a need…

Thankful Thursday (Or, Marriage Is Like A Shart)

Thankful Thursday (Or, Marriage Is Like A Shart)

Good morning readers! It’s a beautiful, crisp (read: freezing) morning here, and I have no other work to do right at the moment, so I thought I’d go ahead and dive right in to my first post! I hope you all just love it. I am going to talk about my “perfect marriage”–fun! I have been thinking a lot about what to write about, and it’s been kind of a struggle. I’m just drawing a blank. This, as many of…
