Where, oh where, has my menstrual cup gone?!

Happy 5th Birthday, Fletcher!

I’m a day early on this one but I’m having a hard time waiting!  Fletcher, my first born, is 5.  This boy continues to amaze me in every way- his sense of humor, intelligence, empathy, and dance moves rival that of a boy much older.  He had a lot of firsts this year including his […]

Happy 3rd Birthday Everett!

The youngest member of our family, Everett, is the big 3 today! I can’t believe it either. He graduated from diapers to undies and recently weaned after he decided a T-Rex was cooler than boobs. He has a little personality all his own. Unlike his older brother, Everett is more reserved and doesn’t open up […]
