A Weekend Away

Yev and I spent time alone this weekend for the first time since we had children. To be honest, I didn’t expect it to happen this soon, but boy was I grateful. It was really wonderful to pack a bag for myself without a single diaper or wipe in sight.…

Marriage

Happy or Right?

All right. So here’s the truth of it. Yev and I had a little “misunderstanding” about who was writing tonight’s article, so here I am, at midnight, typing away at my computer without any plan or prep. And this is exactly how marriage works. It throws us into situations, often…

Self-Care

Infused with Hope

I have been absolutely floored by the kind words I’ve received from my blog readers and Instagram viewers. So much in fact, that I’ve been inspired to reach out to other bloggers whose work resonates with me. I’ve emailed a couple of mom bloggers, and although they did not respond,…

“Oh! I need towel!”

There are traits we want our children to inherit, and there are others that make us want to bang our heads against the wall. Yev and I love seeing intelligence in our children’s eyes and tenacity in their actions. Their mischievousness though, that’s a struggle! Yev laughs it off and…

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…

How You Say It

Everyone knows the old adage about watching what you say around kids. Well I’m here to tell you to watch how you say it! A recent observation has put a whole new spin on how I interact with and around my children, as they often pick up not just what…

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,…

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…
