Three Under Three

Let me tell you what Three Under Three looks like. It means we’re potty training and sleep training and introducing solid foods all at the same time. It means we are constantly doing laundry because of spit up, poop explosions, potty accidents, and just general food messiness. It means I…

What Does Mother’s Day Bring Up for You?

Holidays can be very difficult because they remind us of who is gone but not forgotten. When I worked at a substance abuse treatment facility, I learned about how difficult family celebration days can be for many people. At that point in my life, I had yet to experience great…

6 Questions to Ask Yourself Before Having Another Child

My friends and I are constantly asking ourselves if/when we want more children. This is a huge decision. I’ve found it really interesting when mommy threads on social media advocate for one stance over another, when the truth is that this is a very personal decision. Each child is different,…

And I’m Published!

I’m officially a published writer! Here we are, two months into blogging, and I am published. This seems pretty unfathomable to me. I’ve wanted to be a writer for pretty much my entire life, but I didn’t start seriously considering it as a profession until my early 20s. Ever since…

Failing as a Mom?

Ever felt like a complete failure as a mother? I’ve experienced the word “failure” being part of every mom’s vocabulary. Yesterday was just one of many days where I felt like a failure. The girls watched too much TV. We didn’t get out of the house. I didn’t do any…

Remembering my Sister on Mother’s Day

We were supposed to celebrate this holiday together, tiny tots in tow. I can picture her little children, hand in hand with mine, sitting at the brunch table. I see braids and bows and baby doll dresses. She was supposed to be Auntie Kimmy to my girls and lavish them…

Cinco de Mayo in Your 30s

Oh man. I used to love this holiday. I would dress up in red, throw on some party beads, and hit a local Mexican restaurant. I’d eat a basket of chips (maybe two!) with some tableside guacamole and order a couple of tacos. I always went with a pack of…

Bra is the New Fanny Pack

One of the hardest parts about having my second round of children is that it is impossible to get set up to feed without my toddler twins trying to take everything from me. When I feed baby V, I usually need a burping cloth, a swaddling cloth, a bottle, a…

Self-Care

More Than Mom

I have a history of being forgotten, standard middle child syndrome, but it’s interesting how it has carried into adulthood. Once I married Yev, many people didn’t recognize me without my giant Russian husband, and once I had the twins, most people have a hard time remembering me without them.…

Terrible Tuesday

Boy am I glad yesterday is over, and I pray today is better! I totally got my butt kicked yesterday. The girls weren’t any different than they usually are, but I just could not cope. I usually don’t feel the pressure of three-under-three, but my monthly hormones made sure to…
