Preschool Parental Chaos Style

Posted on July 20, 2017

It’s That Time Again You walk into the store and see the entire town buying the endless list of school supplies. From preschool to preteen, they are all out buying up the shelves. You barely snag the last ink cartridge that you need for work from a friendly teenager and resolve to never shop this time next year. But, you and I both know that you will. I LOVE school supply shopping. Clothes shopping, meh, but school supplies are legit.Read More

Happy 3rd Birthday Kbebe!

Posted on July 9, 2017

Kbebe Turns 3 Today How has it been 3 years already? How is Kbebe 3 today? This wild, sweet thing blessed our life with the best oops imaginable. You see we weren’t ready for a baby, we were just trying to get married! Cameron asked me to marry him in November of 2013, best day until a week later those 2 blue lines popped up! That day was a mix of terror and excitement. At 23 we both were completelyRead More

Help Me Heal My House, My Heart, My Life

Posted on July 6, 2017

So… We figured out where the maggots are coming from. Actually, a new/good/amazing/sweet/beautiful friend figured it out. Seriously, ya’ll¬†it’s ridiculous. But before I get into that, I want to talk about the whole aspect of “asking for help.” (If you missed the first part of this story, head HERE) Why are we so afraid to be vulnerable and ask when we need help? I am so guilty of off-handedly¬†mentioning that I need help but not actually accepting that help. WhyRead More

Failing at This SAHM Thing

Posted on June 26, 2017

Seriously *If you are going to comment mean things just don’t even start. You may be perfect but I’m not. I beat myself up every single day about failing and don’t need to hear it from you.* Where do I even start? My house is a nightmare, I don’t even want to show you because it’s that bad. Dishes in the sink for weeks, trash on the floor, my room is covered in clothes and just crap laying around everywhere.Read More

So, this is my first time away from the kids. I’m fine. Seriously, I can’t believe just how fine I am. I even pumping extra thanks to Mommy Moosli! (giveaway alert)

Fathers Day Help

Celebrating Father’s Day, But Why Won’t He Help Me?

Posted on June 14, 2017

Why Won’t He Help Me? Father’s Day is coming up this weekend and I am busy making gifts with the kids. I seem to dread holidays lately because all we do is make a mess and then it takes me forever to get back to clean. In fact, it seems like more often than not the house is a wreck. I find myself asking the question, “Why won’t he help me?” Why does he come home every night and justRead More

Motherhood

Motherhood, Why So Serious? | #parentalchaos

Posted on June 1, 2017

Motherhood, Why So Serious? Motherhood is hard I’ll give you that but I like to think it’s not as hard as you think. Most of us put tons of pressure on ourselves to be the perfect person, wife, mother, etc. It all wears you down and you start to feel that you need to neglect yourself in order to survive. For me, I shut down when I put that much pressure on myself. I am still working on balancing outRead More
