Raise your hand if you’re one of those super moms who jot down your child’s every first. First visitors, first smile, first giggle, first time to the park, first time rolling over. I bow down to you. I’m not that put together.
I may not have a cute baby’s first book (although I bought a couple adorable ones before our daughter arrived), but I have found the secret to keeping track of special milestones while looking like I’ve got my sh*t together.
I’ll never forget high school history class.
I couldn’t tell you what the project was (it’s been almost 20 years, sigh), but I’ll never forget the feeling I got when my instructor handed me a piece of paper with a big fat “C+.”
Getting older has its perks, but one downside is the extra LBs.
Since meeting Steve almost eight years ago, I’ve consistently put on 5-10 pounds each year. The slow gain didn’t bother me so much, I guess, until I hit my all-time high while pregnant with our second.
It sometimes takes only one person to make you feel like you are not enough, that your efforts are not impactful or that you’re never going to level up.
Don’t be that person.

A new box arrived on my doorstep today!
I can’t believe this is my TENTH fix. For working moms who don’t have time (correction: don’t make the time) to go leisure shopping for stylish work clothes, you will love Stitch Fix.
If nothing else, it’s just fun to receive a package of surprise goodies that you have zero obligation to keep… unless you get a few things you can’t give back! Lol.
The boxes may not always be wins, but I do always love receiving items I wouldn’t necessarily pick out myself.
If you watched my last unboxing video — SPOILER ALERT
Not too long ago, we were at a neighbor’s house and I hear a song coming from the bathroom.
A minute later and my daughter comes running and yelling how she washed her hands “all by myself.”
If you had a choice between flats and heels, which would you choose?
I’m a hands down heels kind of gal. Always have been. In fact, I wore heels (until I couldn’t) with both my pregnancies for the simple fact that they were more comfortable than the flats I owned.
Oh, and for the purpose of this discussion, tennis shoes and sandals are not considered “flats.” I’m talking about all those cute “flats” appropriate for a business casual work environment.
Brooke and I have a tendency to make up songs about doing everyday things. Most of them are flat out weird, but they do make us laugh.
Here’s one of our favorites that helped her during potty training:
Hey, mamas. Talk to me about your morning routine. It seems that no matter what we try to do, getting out the door every morning with a toddler (and baby) in tow is a complete sh*t show.
Now I completely understand why a radio commercial (I forget the brand) asked, “Have you had a morning before your morning?” Yes. Oh my god, yes. I get it now.
Headlines like the one (below) make me giggle, and then awkwardly snort as I try to not spit out my go-go juice (coffee)… from literally laughing out loud.
