“MOOOOM…Geez, that’s NOT how it’s done!” This phrase runs on repeat at my house, and in many cases, it is in response to my complete lack of understanding of the rules to modern teen dating. [insert grandma’s voice here] “In my day…we passed notes in class, pushed buttons on a phone, and got picked up […]
We all want to be more organized, am I right? We scroll through Pinterest and see impeccably designed, totally organized spaces with gleaming surfaces and think, “If only.” But the reality is that people live in our homes and they rarely look Pinterest-worthy. Or if they are organized, we are probably too exhausted to enjoy […]
The Atlanta Braves moved to their new home- SunTrust Park – this past spring. But did you realize that SunTrust Park is part of a larger development- The Battery Atlanta– that is open every day? The live, work, play development is super family-friendly. When the Braves are playing away (or have an off day), it’s […]
It’s ten minutes past their bedtime and my husband walks in from work wearing gym shorts. Again. …and they are dripping with sweat. I am almost certain that he left in slacks. You would think that maybe doing some push ups here with two toddlers clinging to my back would be satisfying enough, and let’s […]
I’m a midwestern girl, living in the south and raising two “southern” boys. It was inevitable that I would purchase one of those cute seersucker jumpers, with a monogram (or smocked design) perfectly placed on the front at some point. This past summer I was ready. But I had no idea where to start. I […]
Need I say more? I currently have a 4-year-old who thinks whining will help. News alert: it doesn’t, son. It only makes me want to hit my head against the wall and eventually run for the hills. But luckily, I haven’t run away and continue to love and care for my children #greatparenting. I am […]
When I heard the news that my mom had only days to live, I panicked over how to tell my kids. How am I going to explain to my 4-year-old twins that Grandma is going to die? I had no experience with Hospice care or watching a loved one slip away in front of my […]
Dear Little Man, “Make it work” is the mantra of many working moms. Well, I didn’t today. I woke up late because the thought of 10 more minutes of precious sleep was just too good to pass up. In fact, it was too good to pass up three times. I missed my morning gym time […]
With the real deadline 2 months away, I decided to go with the slow and steady wins the race mentality for potty training. Don’t rush them through childhood people say, they grow up so quickly. Surely this applies to this situation as well? Nana gave us an ultimatum. He must be potty trained by the time we […]
My thirties were full of revelations: I hate to run. I don’t care if people think we are weird. I really love coffee. And the one that might have been the most revolutionary: I am NOT a morning person. I will never be one. And I’m okay with that. My journey to this self-awareness began […]
