Real talk:Why did no one ever warn me about the summer after your oldest goes off to school for the first time?? It’s not like being a SAHM of two again. Because the dynamic of each child’s personal freedom has changed. And it’s driving me crazy.
This isn’t a ‘practice makes perfect’ post, or even a story of perseverance.
This is a post about a time where I came, I saw, I failed.
And then I made it mine.
Downtown Paso Robles’ Carnegie Library may just be one of the most picture-perfect backdrops for your kiddo adventures in the city, but it’s also a treasure trove of stories.
I want to talk about my husband for a sec. There’s no special occasion, it’s not his birthday. I just thought you might like to hear the story of how we met. It was in college, at Cal Poly SLO.
For a long time, much of my identity was wrapped up in this daily newspaper. I left it in 2015…
This is me.
in a hotel room.
on a big fluffy bed.
all to myself.
sitting in silence.
And it’s the actual best.
I had my first night away from the kids — ever! 🎉
This is probably the shortest blog post ever. But here are some frost pics from Paso Robles, California. Taken with an iPhone in 35 degrees.
I recently asked our readers what their fave shows are to watch with their hubbies after the kiddos go to bed. Most said they break out all the secret snacks and stream some good ‘ol Netflix. So, I decided to make a list. In no ranking order, here’s the best shows to watch with the hubs.
The story behind this playhouse is it’s one of the first things I bought when I left my job to be a stay at home mom. I bought it for something crazy like $30 from another mom on buy/sell/trade. It was supposed to be my super cute Pinterest project to work on “when I had time” while I was at home with the kids. Cue the laughter.
In the beginning, I had structured the blog on reasons to get out of the house: and that was legit. Because inside the house, baby Wyatt would cry anytime I would try to finish ANY task if I wasn’t holding him.
