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…

My Take on Tully

I have been excited to see Tully since the first trailer came out in January. I had just had my third child, and I couldn’t wait to see a movie that seemed to perfectly describe my experience with motherhood. My friends and I were making plans to see it a…

Family

Meet My Framily

I have a very close family of friends, and we refer to ourselves as the Framily, or Fram for short. We’re a ragtag group of couples who have patched together this wonderful group of diverse individuals. These are the friends we plan holidays and vacations with. Whenever we get together,…

Growing my Creativity

What are some of your insecurities as a mom? One of the biggest ones for me is that I’m not playful enough. This may seem ridiculous, but I really struggle with engaging in unstructured activities. I’m great at being on time, serving healthy food, setting boundaries, communicating with my children,…

My Marriage Changed with Children

Oh man are things different now than they were when it was just Yev and me. I remember thinking I was too busy and too tired before, and how we had to make time for date night. Honestly, now I wonder what the heck I did before! And I remember the things…
