I Made a Different Choice

Today, I lost the battle. The juggling act of moms everywhere, attempting to accomplish an unlimited number of tasks in a limited amount of time. But when mom loses, who actually wins? It’s 4pm, and my groceries are still on the counter from the morning. Lunch is somehow on the…

Exactly Where I Want to Be

I’m in a moment of motherhood I truly enjoy. I’m absolutely loving my life as a stay-at-home mom, but this was not always true. Having three children in two years led to many frustrating and exhausting experiences, but I feel as if the girls are old enough now that days…

Finding Gratitude in Grief

Today is the day I muster up the courage to tell you that I miscarried. It has been overwhelming, and to be honest, the idea of telling even one more person makes me want to cry. I feel as if every time I talk about it, I am moving backwards,…

Four Under Four

I have been sick for what feels like forever. I had that terrible virus that was going around town. I got it not only once but twice. I didn’t even know it was possible to give a virus to your family and get it back again. It was terrible. I…

A Wacky Day

Today has been a wacky day. The kind of day where my socks don’t match, and the house looks messy, even though I’ve spent all day cleaning. The kind of day where no amount of sleep can actually make me feel less tired. And of course I’m not the only…

A Successful Park Outing

I took the girls to the park today to tucker them out, but to be honest, I’m not sure who’s more tired: them or me? We all start to go stir crazy when we’re cooped up inside, so either way, it’s essential that we get out. The girls are far…

A New Friend

I had a mommy play date today! I’ve only had a couple of those since becoming a mom, but I have yearned for them for much longer. In my twenties, I thought motherhood was lunch dates and park meet ups, and I couldn’t wait to bond with other mommies. But…

The Baby Carrier

What are the parts of motherhood that make you feel insecure about your body? I feel like there are a zillion, if we let it happen: bathing suits, special occasions, pretty much anything. But the one that got me today was the baby carrier. I don’t think I have ever…

Embrace the Chaos

Yev and I have been trying to have the kids help us with more things. Not because it is in anyway helpful… yet. I’m sure we’ll get to a stage where them cracking and beating eggs for breakfast will be immensely helpful; however, right now, it takes longer, extends cooking…

I Need a Vacation from my Vacation

I spent a wonderful weekend away, but now I’m exhausted. My house looks like a hurricane ripped through it. I’m sitting here with yogurt stains on my pants, courtesy of baby V. The sickness that threatened my health last week, has claimed it this week. I’m a bit of a…
