A Pair of Gloves is One of the Best Purchases I’ve Made

I made one of the best purchase recently. I found latex-free multi-purpose reusable cleaning gloves. This may seem like a silly or non exciting purchase, but let me explain why it is so important to me. See these hands? They are worn and withered. They are broken, bloody, and rough like leather. They aren't pretty… Continue reading A Pair of Gloves is One of the Best Purchases I’ve Made

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

It's one of my favorite days to celebrate, especially now that I'm a momma. Its Dr. Seuss' birthday, or National Read Across America Day! With all the colors, whimsy, and silliness, there is so many ways to celebrate, but so far, we have kept it fairly simple.

My Anxiety Doesn’t Allow Me to Stop

Its naptime in our house, and I know I need to rest. That's my self-care. Being pregnant, and in the third trimester means that rest is important. But, my anxiety tells me other things are more important. Even as I lie down, my mind races, making mental check lists and scheduling things that probably won't… Continue reading My Anxiety Doesn’t Allow Me to Stop

I have to trust that he would so it 'right.' But, we don't, so I have a never ending pile of… Continue reading Chores, Control, & Toddlers: Learning to Trust God in the Process

Momma, You are Where You are Meant to Be

I have a lot to get done today. My to-do list seems to keep growing, and my schedule is a little shifted around today to accommodate for everything.

I Played with Barbies as an Adult and I Don’t Regret it

I played with Barbies today. Not haphazardly, but full on dressing them, going along with a story line. And, it. Was. Wonderful! This week has been a whirlwind for us. As you know, we moved into a new house this week, so being busy and tired is an understatement. Not to mention, being halfway through… Continue reading I Played with Barbies as an Adult and I Don’t Regret it

Potty Training Day 3

We started potty training my 2 year old on Monday. And to say it has been a breeze would be a lie. We aren't doing any of the 3 day methods, though I love the idea. But our friends that we are currently staying with probably wouldn't be a fan of accidents on their nice… Continue reading Potty Training Day 3
