My kids are talkers. Big, BIG talkers. Master conversationalists. It's like when God was doing His thing (You know, the "knitting together in the mother's womb" routine from Psalm 139), He collaborated with Busta Rhymes - and whoever invented the filibuster. And then my kids were born. And when it comes to topics, we cover [...]
Deep conversations with my almost-two-year-old: 7.9.21 Adrianne: "I love you, buddy." Nash: "Thank you." Nash: "I have fingernails... (long pause) ...and I have fingernails on my feet too." https://videopress.com/v/Hj19MLaQ?preloadContent=metadata Honey Mustard Kisses. My fav. Good talk, pal.
We had a play-date yesterday that started at 3 p.m. We rolled in at 3:30. Why?

If you've ever been on a road trip with toddlers, then you know the miles are paved with questions. 20 questions. 20 million billion questions. Questions that usually focus on location. "Are we there yet? Are we close? How about now?" There are roughly seven hours between our house in South Carolina and my parent's [...]
Happy Friday-eve to everyone except those who are trying to be their best selves during a global pandemic! If I'm being honest, I'll never be a master sugar cookie decorator (remember my phallic Christmas cookies?) so there's a zero percent chance Pipe and Nash will be decorating darling cookies that look like eggs, bunnies or [...]
Remember when I broke out in hives and my doctor put me on mood stabilizing meds to treat the suppressed anxiety that I couldn't get under control because people are crazy, motherhood is nuts and it isn't socially acceptable to drink red wine until after five even though it's good for your heart (here's a [...]
At the end of the day, after the kids have been fed three well-balanced meals (Jk, I'm feeding toddlers), 1.5 million snacks, bathed, entertained with toys and random household items (TV remote, empty milk jug, a box of ziplock bags, a grey marker, and one empty Amazon box) serenaded by the Frozen 2 playlist on [...]
