Anna Kate’s 4 Month Update

5 Must Haves For Your Diaper Bag

5 Must Haves For Your Diaper Bag

Diaper bags, necessary burdens all moms of littles need to carry around. If you are like me, you might be an overpacker. I have learned with my second baby (and a smaller diaper bag) what I absolutely must have in my diaper bag. Aside from the obvious phone, wallet, diapers and wipes. We all know [...]

Can’t Wear Skinny Jeans ‘Cuz My Nuts Don’t Fit

Lyrics by Jay-Z. Truth that I live every day since having this baby. Prepare for whining. With Karina the weight literally fell right off. I was back in my regular jeans by 1 month. Almost 4 months with this kid, and not even close. I gained about the same with both babies, but my hips [...]

Untitled design-5

Since we moved in we have had multiple contractors come by the house to fix things that we’ve noticed. For some reason they always stop by while I’m nursing the baby, so I grab a cover or a blanket. The other day, a worker stopped by and shockingly I was not nursing. But Karina yelled [...]

I’m Lazy. But I enjoy keeping a clean house. Back in the day before kids I cleaned weekly and my house stayed mostly clean. But when Karina was little I mastered the art of having a clean house and not busting my ass to keep it that way. There are certain things that I do [...]

First Day of Preschool

First Day Of School

Karina started preschool last month. After months of begging to go to school. She also kept talking about her friends “Chawley and Rawley” and her teachers. I was sad that she wasn’t going to be going back to the preschool she went to last year but I knew she’d have fun at her new school. [...]
