Greetings! I want to quickly blog about some social issues regarding interpersonal relationship violence and how we perceive it if the gender roles are reversed. I was recently watching 90 Day Fiancé–it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. I am aware of the horrible examples of relationships that it portrays and no, I do not let the… Continue reading Women that Abuse
Greetings! I have been so pleased lately to find other moms blogging and pleased to know that I am not alone. I have a 7 and a 6 year old-parenting is not new-but now that I have the baby it’s like I’m a renewed mommy. I returned six weeks postpartum with Annabelle and Russell.

My baby turns 6 tomorrow! I tried to throw him a party that was supposed to take place tomorrow– huge bounce house and food/cake as well. Since I do like 50 things at once and I am always busy I planned it on the same weekend as Easter (which I also don’t celebrate) and as… Continue reading We Don’t Do Traditional Birthdays
Are the public schools feeding my kids?? Jesus H Christ. I usually pack their lunches and each month each child has to bring snacks in for that week– so they are covered right? These kids come home starving! All jokes aside, I know that they are growing kids and that this is normal. I am… Continue reading Do They Ever Stop Eating?!
