How To Do It All

Life is a balancing act. Figuring out how to be healthy but still enjoy life and food. How to be a good mom and wife (because it's hard to be both). Keeping a clean(ish) house while still living in it.

What Do You Do All Day: A Homeschool Day

I don't know many people that like this question. It's usually directed at two groups: stay at home parents and homeschoolers. Unfortunately, I fall under both categories. Luckily, this is not a question I hear too often.

Mom Self-Care

I think before we had kids, we took a lot of things for granted (uninterrupted showers, peeing alone, not having to plan your day around a small dictator's feeding, sleeping, and pooping schedule). The biggest one being self-care.

Messy Play

Mess. As parents, we try to avoid it though we know it's inevitable. We are raising monsters, I mean tiny humans after all. But messes can be a good thing.

Homemade Fingerpaint

It seems like every time I decide to drag out the paint for the kids, it's gone. Or mostly gone. Or someone (Liam) has mixed all of the paints up and someone else (Abby) just can't paint with mixed up colors... So what do you do in this situation? Why, make your own, of course!

Whole ‘Latte’ To Do

This morning was one of those mornings it felt like I had a million and three things to do. It felt like I had so many things to do that I just didn't want to do any of them. Instead, I gave myself something to savor and get myself going: a latte.
