MOMMA’S BACK!

After what feels like an eternity of not writing I’m finally back! Whew! Did you miss me?! I missed all of you! It’s after midnight on a Thursday and I’m exhausted and surrounded by art supplies while my Husband and the dogs snore. I’ve been working hard on my submission for The Sketchbook Project. BackContinue reading “MOMMA’S BACK!”

Watermelon Explosion!

Alright so obviously I haven’t written much lately about my family’s crazy antics. Life has been hectic and weird. We’ve definitely been on a weird ride though. The good news is, this time I can actually SHOW you what we did. The Hubs has been working hard to build his YouTube channel Donny Duct TapeContinue reading “Watermelon Explosion!”

Morning Whispers

They’re in our bed again. What I hate in the night I love in the morning. I wrap myself in it like a big snuggly blanket, Soak up their sleeping faces and cute tiny toes. I tickle her feet and snuggle up next to her. She pushes her feet back against me and whispers softly…..Continue reading “Morning Whispers”

Love Everyone.

Today’s post is going to be a little different. I don’t normally post here about my faith or morality. I started out writing to create a safe place for people to come and read and laugh about the weird life I lead. It’s become so much more than that. I’ve kept relatively quiet about myContinue reading “Love Everyone.”

Good News!

It’s been too long since I’ve written. Life seems to be going 1000 miles an hour lately and there never seems to be enough time in the day. It’s not bad busy. It’s actually pretty exciting. I’ve been trying new recipes, making kits and lots of soap, and trying to make my house look lessContinue reading “Good News!”

Self Quarantine Day 59: My Pawpaw

I woke up yesterday with a heaviness in my heart. It didn’t take long to realize that it was the four year anniversary of the last time I saw my Pawpaw. It is a memory that’s like a Polaroid. Crystal clear in spots but fuzzy round the edges. He was tired and weak but happy.Continue reading “Self Quarantine Day 59: My Pawpaw”

The Evil Twin

When you have little kids, people seem to think it’s okay to ask weird personal questions about them and you. Things they wouldn’t ask about older children. “Do they sleep through the night?” “Did you nurse them?” “Are they picky eaters?” Not terrible questions, just strange things that people seem to ask in an effortContinue reading “The Evil Twin”

Self Quarantine Day 40: Best Birthday Ever!

I never in a million years thought that I’d be celebrating my birthday during a pandemic. If you’d told me before Friday that this was going to be my best birthday ever I would have laughed at you and called you an idiot. Sometimes it’s nice to be wrong. My birthday celebrations started off FridayContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 40: Best Birthday Ever!”

Self Quarantine Day 29: Chain Reaction

I’m an advocate for learning through play but sometimes it’s hard for me to slow down and get involved in the kids’ play. I get caught up in everything else that needs to be done and I can be a bit of a stick in the mud. Today I decided to have some fun withContinue reading “Self Quarantine Day 29: Chain Reaction”
