Momming

I have a comondrum (obviously that’s what a conundrum on Monday is called). Will someone PLEASE, for the love of God, explain to me the sizing of baby clothes? I’m like the billionth trillionth person in the world to have a baby (let alone that it’s 2016) and yet it would seem that primitive toddlers are sizing […]

I have THE biggest couple crush on Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard. I just love them. And WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?!

There are so many things I wonder about put-together moms, there are also SO many things I assume. For example, I assume they planned their pregnancy and have known since they were six how many kids they were going to have, down to the gender and color of hair. I assume they don’t work – but if […]

Let me preface this by saying I love being a mom. I’m not even sure what I did before I had kids. Well, actually, that’s a lie… Confession #1. I love being a mom but I know exactly what I did before I had kids. And I miss it. At times, I still find myself mourning […]
