I’m falling in love, folks. With the tiny, quiet, wholesome town we’ve  moved to. I admit I had doubts…BIG doubts. But after just a month it feels like home. The people in this all American town feel like longtime neighbors, and we’ve been welcomed with open arms. Living in the capital meant at least a…

SO much has happened over the last two weeks that I don’t know where to start. On the 7th we celebrated our son’s third birthday at the aquarium. To say it was a BIG HIT would be an understatement. He lost his marbles at least 30+ times. From petting snakes, turtles and alligators, to seeing…

Discipline: A 4 Letter Word

My husband is TOTALLY stoked by this. He see’s a big boy in training…cue the baseballs! And, in true big boy fashion, he’s sleeping like a rock. Success! And…

Momicked

My Lord son, ain’t I been momicked this week. HA! How’s that for some down home southern talk’n? But man o’ man its how I feel. My poor little tot is caught somewhere between knowing what he wants and having NO CLUE how to tell you. I can’t imagine how frustrating it must be for…
