There are many things I took for granted before having children–namely, showering, peeing unaccompanied, having a moment to think, and eating in restaurants.

Thank you to Jennifer Cropp, MD from North Scottsdale Pediatrics for providing resources for this post. As parents, we dread flu season. We hate to see our children sick, and we as parents just don’t have time to be sick. No matter how hard we will the season away and prepare with flu shots and […]

This post is sponsored by our friends at Cookie Cutters Haircuts for Kids of Phoenix/Scottsdale Last week, Cookie Cutters agreed to cut the hair of all five of my cuties! We arrived at 4 pm, and by 4:45 pm we were all walking out with smiles, balloons, and snazzy haircuts. The speed and ease was especially […]
We’re into the thick of December now, and if you are like me, at this point you’re overwhelmed by the (self-imposed) pressure to create a magical holiday season for your family. By nature I am low-key and a bit of an introvert, so the idea of wearing my family and me out by seeing and […]

Some of these gatherings are adult only (yay partayyyy!) BUT, I ran into a problem…..babysitting. Usually we recruit a grandma, but they are just […]
“What do you want to do when you grow up?” What a question. A question everyone asks when we are young. But can I even answer that? Call me selfish, but I want it all. I want to be a loving wife. I want to be a caring Mom. I want to use my mind. […]
