Forget princess dresses, she’s a superhero… also we don’t own any princess clothes.
Can we take a few minutes and chat about girl clothes?
When we found out that the Princess was in fact a girl (I can’t tell you how many times Mr. Spreadsheets made the ultrasound tech check and then recheck that she was actually a girl), I was stoked.
I was thrilled for a lot of reasons, but I have to admit that I thought girl clothes would be so fun.
And girl clothes are so fun… but… well there are some things that just frustrate me. Continue reading “Faux Fur: A Must Have in Any Girl’s Wardrobe?”
I have some serious weather envy.
No really, I think it’s reached a whole new level.
I am SO jealous of those people who are experiencing autumn right now.
I’m jealous of the people pulling out their sweaters, finding socks, and looking for jackets.
You know what we are doing?
Absolutely nothing, it’s still hot. Continue reading “Weather Envy”
I have to take a quick minute and admit that I LOVE being in my thirties.
I was a little bit worried as my 30th birthday approached, but now that I’m several years into this, I can whole heartedly admit that I love my thirties.
My twenties were a time of transition.
My twenties were great, my tummy was nice and flat, my smile lines weren’t permanent, but let’s be honest, there was a lot of figuring life out.
Sure I’m still figuring life out one hour at a time, but I feel more equipped to handle things. Continue reading “Thriving Thirties”
I’m a boring person.
I don’t like to do crazy things.
I am also not a fun and exciting friend.
But I’ve decided that while “fun” is… well fun, it isn’t the only thing I want in a friend, or the kind of friend I aspire to be.
I want to be the dependable, dedicated, and loyal friend.
I want to be the friend that you can count on to respond, to show up, and to help.
I’m convinced that 90% of being a good friend is just showing up.
I may feel this way because I’m not fun, I am a Hufflepuff after all. Continue reading “The Secret to Being a Good Friend is Being a Hufflepuff”
When Harry Potter was a baby we were pretty cautious of his schedule.
I remember carefully packing him snacks, extra clothes, and enough diapers to last a week, just to go to story time.
Things are a little different with the Princess.
I keep a couple of diapers in the the car just in case, but she sure as heck doesn’t have a change of clothes, and most of the time her “snack” is whatever I find in my bag. Continue reading “First Kid vs. Third Kid”
Do you ever have those moments with your kids when you just have to stand back and ask yourself how they got hurt… again?
AsthmaMan has had a recent string of facial injuries.
As we all know facial injuries result in two things:
- A LOT of screaming
- A LOT of blood

Monday Morning Bathroom Cleaning- HECK YES!
Mr. Spreadsheets will tell you that I am one of those people that have to start the day off on the right foot.
Some people can start off with chaos and have a perfectly cheery day… I am not one of those people. Continue reading “Starting Off on the Right Foot”
