Lazy Sundays. 

Sometimes Sundays just call for being lazy. Like extra lazy, where you don’t shower until after lunch and all you do is cuddle on the couch watching Peppa Pig. Enjoying these special moments I get to spend with our little girl before the craziness of a newborn comes. ūüíē Shout out to American Kiddo for…

What Nobody Tells You About After Birth

While pregnant with my first I read article after article and never missed a class to learn about my baby, my pregnant body, what to expect during labor, what contractions feel like, what to bring to the hospital, etc. I thought I knew it all and walked through those ER doors with my head high….

You Make Me Smile.

I’m always a little hesitant to sign up for memberships or subscriptions. I mean I signed up for a one year gym membership and went maybe 3 times in the whole year. (Spending that at Panera would have been a better option in my opinion). ¬†But then again I, also, was convinced by my husband…

Aunt Flo Needs to Know.

Being raised by my father was nothing less of an adventure, especially when it came time for him to explain Aunt Flo to me. (Thanks Dad!) It’s always something no one wants to talk about but there is some serious info to be shared about tampons and pads. Granted my daughter is only 2 and…

I Love You Too Much.

When I had our baby girl so many people told me not to hold her so much or comfort her after every cry because I would spoil her and I never understood why or how, nor did I ever listen (that seems to be a reoccurring theme in my life #sorrynotsorry ). In Africa it…

It’s Motherhood.

My journey through motherhood has been nothing less than eventful and yet full of so many blessings. From starting my journey as a step-mother of a sweet little boy, to being the mommy of a rambunctious, independent little girl, to the future arrival of our little one in August, I can say from experience that…

No GMO for my FMO!

I didn’t grow up organic. Let’s be honest here, I barely touched a fruit or vegetable growing up and ate dirt. But it was also a different time. A time when food was safe and companies didn’t compensate or risk the world’s health for an extra dollar. So the other day I came home and…

Will I see you there? I’m so excited! My journey to motherhood was never a planned one. Growing up I always envisioned getting married and having 2 kids right off the bat, no problem. Well life always has a funny way of screwing up our plans in our head¬†doesn’t it? Now let me start by…

Little Travelers.

Our kids have been to more places in their 1 and 8 years of life then most people have been in their entire decades of life.¬†And that’s our goal.¬†It’s how I was raised and I wouldn’t have them any different.¬†Educating our children of the world and to help them realize there’s more out there. There’s…

ClickList is Life. 

I need to go to the grocery store today….normally that sentence would spark a little panic and fear into my life. Followed by an hours worth of planning and all day strategically organizing the best possible time to take my kids. I’m not over exaggerating here, if you haven’t read my post Grocery Gremlin do so…

Let’s Get Weird.¬†

Our boys newest thing is to persistently tell me ” I’m weird”. As to which I always reply “it only gets better with time”. ¬†Now I can’t be the only parent who gets called weird, right?¬†I probably told my dad he was weird about a million times. But here is why I’m “weird”… I never…
