3 Out of 5

I have recently been reading Thrive by Arianna Huffington and, although I'm not too far into it, a bit of text caught my eye and has been sitting in my brain. She quoted Randi Zuckerberg's entrepreneur's dilemma. When it comes to being successful within the five key areas of your life – work, sleep, friends, … Continue reading 3 Out of 5

Snot Pretty

Any new mommy's worst fear is that their babies will get sick. Until now, we've been fortunate enough not to experience this. Mommy brought the germies into the house. After 9 months, the most gruelling days have arrived. Both babies are sick for the first time. UGH! I'm not talking about a little sniffle and a wee … Continue reading Snot Pretty

Baby, It’s Cold Outside

And matured into the … Continue reading Identity Crisis

Time Warp

Every day is a marathon. With the girls getting older and staying awake for longer stretches of time, each day seems endless. While the day is not task-a-lackin', I find myself glancing at the clock and thinking, "It's only 9 am!?" Between feeds, diaper changes, nap times, dishes, playtime, and making myself a tea, time becomes … Continue reading Time Warp
