Maybe Triscuits weren’t the BEST idea?

I wake up in the middle of the night a lot...Most of the times it is because my glorious beauty sleep is interrupted by a creature that cries from the other room, or gracefully enters our bed. Tonight she fussed for a bit, waking me (while my hubby slept soundly...not sure how he does...

Reasons Our Transition To A Toddler Bed Has Been A Success

As we attempted to wind down this evening, I realized it was a month ago I wrote about our daughter receiving her Gold Medal for Perfect Dismount From the Crib into the toddler bed. I wanted to keep you all updated! Believe it or not, the toddler bed (aka BIG GIRL BED to her) trans...

Embracing Spontaneity, It Does A Body Good!

Remember when…leaving the house meant merely walking out the door? Spontaneity flew out the window after we had Laney; probably more my fault because I’m a planner and if it wasn’t planned then I wasn’t game. Long gone are the days of getting a random phone call after a long day of ...

Never Judge A Book By It’s Cover

Today Lovebug and I made a trip to get the Saturn an oil change before we hit the road to visit family in Iowa. Yes, we have to drive an hour to get our oil changed, another perk of living in the boonies. I can’t complain because my hunk of a husband drives that far to and from work ...
