30 Things My Kids Should Know About Me

I’m consistently inconsistent, in that I have a habit of starting things that I never finish. Jayden’s baby book that was supposed to be done before Jaxon was born? Incomplete. Jaxon’s monthly photo updates? Well, I took the photos. I can go on about the many things I have failed at, but that would beContinue Reading

I have a few who do and I appreciate them. Turning the tables around, I can see why sweepers… sweep. I can’t turn my nose upContinue Reading

Life with a newborn… again.

Life with a newborn… again.

Where do I begin? I guess I should start with… myself. Postpartum me. It’s been three weeks and physically I feel fine. The first week I found myself trying to do too much.
