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…

The Pressure of Being Mom

I’ve found that one of the hardest parts of being Mom is the pressure to always figure it out. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t the go-to for all answers. Sometimes I wish I could just hand my screaming child over to someone else to put to sleep. Why does Mom have…

Girl’s Day, Woot! Woot!

You might be asking yourself, what chocolatey goodness resides within that ramekin? The answer is L’ultime fondant chocolat, or in English, it’s basically a gluten-free chocolate soufflé. These were amazing. I ate all of mine and half of my mom’s, while she wasn’t looking. Being gluten-free can sometimes be really difficult,…

Toddler Talk

Having twin toddlers is rough, but their cute, little, adorable attempt at talking melts my heart. R is super verbal, and L is still working on it. Here are a few of my favorites. Poopoos: Because poop obviously needs to be plural 😆 Shampoop: 😂 Gets me every time Big Truch: The amalgamation…

Mom Shaming Makes Me Sick

I was looking through Facebook today, and I clicked on a mommy article with almost 800 comments. I always tell myself I won’t do this because it’s infuriating, but I’m also curious about current hot topics for moms. As I scrolled through the comments about #breastisbest vs. #fedisbest, I was…
