We have been having a lot of discussions about fairness lately. Not necessarily because Aadie says that things aren't fair, but because I believe in natural consequences and following through when I give her a warning. I try to be very consistent in my follow through with her because I truly believe that it helps … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings… what is fair?
This week we learned about all things D. It was kind of a dreary week, cool and rainy more days than not. Nevertheless we were able to have a great week and Aadie definitely learned that D says /d/ for "Daddy and duck!" so I think overall it was a win. hah! Dinosaurs were big … Continue reading A Dreary but Delightful D Week
I have found that one of the most challenging parts of staying home with the kids is that they are on completely different schedules. Of course this will get easier as they grow, but some days (like today) it sucks the life out of me. Hubs got home this afternoon, took one look at me … Continue reading Mama Needs a ‘Time Out’.

We are just getting ready to say 'c' you later! to C week. We had another great LoW week! Aadie also decided that she would potty train herself this week (yay right?) so we ended up spending a lot of time inside and didn't venture too far from home. She's doing awesome though! I'm so … Continue reading ‘C’ You Later!
My sweet boy, You just woke up after only 2 hours of sleep tonight. I climbed the stairs as you screamed for me and when I walked into the room you stopped. Without seeing me you knew that it was Mama. You knew that you would soon be safely wrapped up in my arms. You … Continue reading If I could freeze this moment in time… a letter to my son.
I recently visited our local Trader Joe's to scout out some vegan ingredients and stock up on healthier snack options for my family. It's about a 25 minute ride, so not terrible for toddler and baby, but I don't go very often because I have tons of other options that are much closer. I go … Continue reading Here’s to YOU! Super nice lady who works at Trader Joe’s.
Now that it's been about a month that I have been a sahm I am realizing the challenges that come along with it. Not that I thought everything would be sunshine and rainbows all the time but until I was elbows deep in this new life of mine I didn't fully know what to expect. … Continue reading Yea, apparently sometimes I’m ‘that’ Mom…
This week we continued our LoW journey and learned all about the letter B. Some of our plans were kind of ruined due to unexpected bad weather (unexpected in that Mama forgot to check the forecast.. oops). Either way, we didn't let the rain spoil our fun! Bubbles, books, balancing, blue coloring, bathtub painting, basketball … Continue reading BOOM, It’s B Week!
I never really thought about when to expect my toddler to stop taking what we say at face value. She's pretty quick so I guess I shouldn't be surprised that this weekend it happened. If you have been following along you probably know that she is a natural little comedienne. She didn't skip a beat … Continue reading Monday Mealtime Musings…Reading Between the Lines
