Hi, Happy Easter! I apologize for…not blogging. Ironically, my reason for not blogging (other than a crazy busy job and 2 crazy, young kids) is that I’ve been preparing for a conference I’ll be speaking at in 3 weeks…on the topic of blogging. Oh the irony! I can’t remember the last time I have gone…
It’s our last night of vacation and I’m feeling a bit conflicted. On the one hand I miss my girls like WHOA. On the other hand, I’m more than happy to stay at least one more night. I mean, we’ve only tried 4 of the 9 restaurants and the foodie in me is totally shaking…
I feel like I went from survival mode to total relaxation mode. I’m definitely not complaining. We dropped off the girls (the two 2-leggers and the one 4-legger) with my in-laws yesterday and we’re feeling a bit naked. Naked and relaxed. The irony with children is you dream about a little time away and the…
As I was nursing the baby before bed tonight, I was thinking about how quickly the past 6+ months since Piper’s birth have flown by. I vividly remember the first few days we were home from the hospital and demolition had just begun on our kitchen. I was holed up in my bedroom with a…

It’s the second day of spring and it’s the second day this mama is celebrating some SLEEP! Piper has graced me with an 11 hour stretch on Sunday night and a 10-hour stretch (followed by a 2 ½ hour stretch) last night. Somehow, my evening hockey game tomorrow evening sounds all the more exciting. I’m…
It’s mid-March and wouldn’t you know, here comes winter! Just when I was getting geared up for warmer temps and all the fun and good vibes that comes with getting OUTSIDE. At least there’s always vacation? I can’t complain, though. Daycare hasn’t been canceled a single day this winter and we’ve been relatively healthy all…
