aren’t you a bit chubby for that skirt?

aren’t you a bit chubby for that skirt?

I remember the exact moment when I learned I was a chubby little girl.  I must have been somewhere in the 6-8 year old age range, but really that part doesn’t really matter.  We were at a church picnic, I was wearing a demin skirt […]

make your workout count

make your workout count

I totally get the challenge of finding time to workout when you have kids, especially when you are trying to workout at home.  There are so many thoughts running through my head before starting a workout: Are the kids sleeping?  When will they wake? Do […]

three steps to calm the worry

three steps to calm the worry

Adjusting to three kids has been a lot harder than two.  Most days I feel like I’ve got the day figured out, but other days I question everything I do.  Nova is almost 2 months old now and as sweet as can be.  Hunter and […]

Hunter: 2 years

These are a few of my favorite things. Cuddly hugs when Hunter wakes in the morning. Needing a mommy kiss to make an owie better. The way he says diaper (dowper). The way he’ll mimic our awesome English accents. How he loves his baby sister. […]

day in the life: alone with two kids

Yesterday it was just me and the kiddos. It had been a glorious 2.5 weeks having Jacob home, but sadly he had to go back to work. Both Jacob and Hunter were sick over the weekend, so going into Monday I wasn’t sure how it […]
