The Most Difficult Year of my Life

I feel as if I am walking out of the most difficult year of my life. I’m sure there are more hardships that will come my way, but I have never had my mental, physical, and spiritual health tested like I did this year. I have never experienced self-doubt or…

5 Tips for Surviving the Terrible Twos

I have had a rough couple of days. Between nap skipping, toddler screeching, twin fighting, and baby teething, I’ve had a few moments where I thought I was going to lose my mind and some moments where I actually did. I don’t have an answer for how to end the…

Tips for Escaping the DMV Unscathed

I have this theory that the DMV is really the tenth circle of hell. I have never gotten out of there in less than three hours. While I wait in those plush plastic chairs, I spend all of my time perseverating over the essential document list in my head, terrified…

Fill Yourself Up

Sometimes I wonder what it would feel like if the house was quiet during daylight hours. Can you imagine it? No screaming. No messes. Just you and a book, a meal, a favorite past-time. As much as I yearn for a few calm moments, I know I would miss the…

The Desitin Disaster

This morning’s Desitin Disaster reminded me of the Poopocalypse, and although it was less disgusting, it was infinitely more difficult to clean up. I can barely clean Desitin off of my hands after using it properly, but this morning’s debacle has left us smelling like Desitin, despite multiples baths and…
