I’m constantly worried that I’m screwing my kids up for life, and not in the good way.  As a child from a dysfunctional home I pride myself in the positives that came from it- like knowing a lot about drug culture (but never trying them because I had the best “say no to drugs” commercial […]

…and a Kim update too! Family, Fitness, Home, and BlogU

No, I’m not making a pregnancy announcement like Lara did yesterday.  However, I realized I haven’t given a good “random stuff” update in a while about my family and our happenings.   The biggest update is that my oldest son is just about to graduate from Pre-K this month and will start Kindergarten at a charter school […]

A Special Announcement from Lara and Harper…

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

♫♪ Oh where, oh where can she be?!  She’s not in the drawer, behind it, or in my purse.  Perhaps my kids hid her from me! ♫♪ Happy Birthday!  That’s what my uterus said on January 25.  What a shitty gift.  My uterus is a habitual re-gifter because she gave me that same gift on […]

A look at “Life After Diapers”

It has been about 8 months since Everett potty trained.  This time in my life can now be referred to as “AD.”  I suppose the previous 5 years were “DD” and pre-kids my life was “BD.” Life “BD” is nothing like “DD.”  Even though there aren’t diapers to wash, there is still plenty of other […]
