The Real Reason Toddlers Have Tantrums

My 3-year-old is going through some intense development right now, and the resulting tantrums are quite impressive.

If I have any future hearing loss, I'll be telling my son he did this to me as a … Continue reading The Real Reason Toddlers Have Tantrums

Celebrating MY Independence – A Daycare Story

I'm interrupting my regularly scheduled funny little stories to confess I totally broke down and cried several times last week and I've just had it.¬†This stay-at-home-mom is waving the white flag.

My Week in Review – Local Beans, Free Bowling, Pavers and a Magic Wand

This week I stumbled across a local bean roaster right here in Jax Beach, set the first paver stone down in my new front patio, learned (sort of) how to use a curling wand and introduced my son to the wonders of the bowling alley.

You’re the Reason We Can’t Have Nice Things

I have a fancy new white couch and a toddler. WTF was I thinking??? I also chose white cabinets for our kitchen remodel. I've obviously lost my mind. I spend wayyy too much time wiping hand, feet and God knows what else kind of prints off everything from the couch to the light blue colored … Continue reading You’re the Reason We Can’t Have Nice Things

We’ve Become Those People

My husband and I used to go out to dinner a lot. We would usually sit at the bar and spend several hours drinking wine and eating appetizers for meals.
