Exactly How I Lost My Cool: Breaking Down the Madness

I recently had an epiphany after seeing an Instagram post from Indy Moms Blog co-owner Nickie. She described the sequence of events that had brought her to Parenting Rock Bottom on that particular evening. It was a play-by-play of every single annoying thing that happened while she was trying to wrangle all three kids at […]

The Building Blocks of An Incredible Weekend

As two parents working traditional 9-5 schedules, weekends are EVERYTHING for my husband and me. It’s our time to be together as a family, get things done, decompress from the week, and prepare for another round of craziness. The Friday feeling is real.

Confessions of a Recovering Target Addict

When I told my husband I was giving up Target for the month of January, I don’t think he believed me. I’m not sure I believed myself. But then I posted about my mission on Facebook, and 85 reactions and battle cries of support later (with only a few people calling me crazy), I’m committed […]

27 Things You Don’t Have to Do

We moms are all about the to-do list. Homework, birthday presents, laundry, dishes, shopping, parties to plan, doctors to call, activities to do. I thought I might make a list of 27 things you DON’T have to do. Please DO NOT add them to your list. I present, in no particular order… You don’t have […]

My Word for 2017: “Boundaries.”

I’m a big fan of happiness and habits guru Gretchen Rubin. (If you’re into podcasts, be sure to check out Happier with Gretchen Rubin.) I’ve been excited to crack open Gretchen’s A Happier 2017 desk calendar since it arrived as a pre-order in August. The first daily prompt encouraged me to select one word to […]
