SNUGGLE ADDICTION.

I have always known that my little girl was a huge fan of snuggling. A lot of kids love to snuggle up with their parents at least on some occasions. I never knew how extreme her snuggle addiction was though.. It honestly only recently started occurring outside of the usual stuffed animal or blanket. She has never been truly obsessed with any one particular thing at bedtime (outside of the binky) and thank goodness that’s gone, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t want something with her all of the time at night. I noticed this a few weeks ago when…

COFFEE FREQUENCY.

So lately, I am struggling A LOT when it comes to energy. I have tried several healthy options such as adding 30 things to a smoothie and it just doesn’t help. Between my family, work, blogging, and keeping up with my mom chores, while also carrying around a big baby bump I just don’t get enough rest somehow (I literally sleep 10 hours a night so idk why.. but yea..) Anyway… So, I started getting coffee (like everyday) from coffee shops near me or running through Starbucks when I am in a hurry. I do this because our Keurig cappuccino…

PROUD PARENT.

I feel like I don’t usually brag on my kiddo on my posts because most of the time I’m laughing at the silly things she does, but honestly I need to brag. I’ve been having a lot of proud parent moments lately where I just want to yell, “MY KID IS A ROCKSTAR” and give out a million high fives but I can’t because…adult life  For instance, the other day we took my mother to the airport and Lo told us two times that she needed to potty at the beginning and middle of the drive. The airport is an…

DON’T LAUGH.

I am pretty positive every parent experiences those moments when their sweet child does something completely unacceptable but 100% hilarious and you can’t help but laugh rather than discipline. This happens to me like 10X a day, so I might have a slight problem but I can’t help myself.  I mean, it’s not my fault that she’s so cute and funny while also being a sassy mess. I honestly find myself turning around or hiding my face from her multiple times a day because I know I shouldn’t laugh but apparently I’m super immature. Although, I truly don’t have anyone…

THE TERRIBLE WHINE.

I can pretty confidently say that I have made it thus far through parenting due to three things. 1. All my supporters (aka..the hubby, my family, and BFF’s), 2. My Netflix addiction, and 3. My love of wine. These three things have pretty much been there for me since I had my sweet girl. They helped me through the late nights, vomit stained clothes, and leaky diapers. They are pretty much my superheroes. I guess I must have thought that I was doing a pretty good job myself because I decided adding another baby to the mix was doable, which…

SAVE WATER, SHOWER TOGETHER.

We have all heard the infamous saying, “save water, shower together” and we have all also probably thought it was somewhat of a funny or sexy way of getting your significant other to join you in the shower…IN MY DREAMS… My daughter has never once taken an interest in what a shower even is until recently. She has always seen the shower as a way to¬† make mama disappear suddenly and then return 10 minutes later. A trick she often didn’t approve of but mama’s need to feel clean too.. A few weeks ago, daddy had to run an errand…

BEFORE PREGNANCY VS. DURING PREGNANCY.

I swear half of the things I said I would do next time I was pregnant was just a giant lie to myself to make me feel better. Ok, maybe not a lie but definitely a fib. I mean don’t get me wrong I do the things I said I would but just not as well as I originally pretended to believe…. __________________________________________________ Before I was pregnant: I am going to eat so healthy during my next pregnancy. During my¬†pregnancy: “Babe, don’t forget the cheetoh puffs, pringles, bunch a crunch, and French fries from the store.” __________________________________________________ Before I was…

LET’S GET NAKED & TRAIN – POTTY TRAINING TIPS.

Let me start by saying I am not a miracle worker, potty whisperer, or knowledgeable on the subject at all. In fact I have never read a potty training book or article in my life (ok, that’s a lie I have skimmed one or two of the bolded areas of an article..) I wasn’t even sure where to start or when “training” was supposed to be over. I personally felt like this was a boot camp for my kid to learn how to aim her potty into the right bowl. But.. whatever I did worked for my little Lo and…

KEEPING WHITES WHITE.

I can’t even tell you how many times I have gotten compliments on how I keep my whites so white. I never really thought about it but I honestly think it’s because I never spill on them, which is super crazy because I spill everything. (It’s a family curse .)  Of course, that changed slightly once I had a kid of my own. Not only did I have to protect my whites from myself, but also my daughter. This is actually a terrifying thought. I can honestly say there hasn’t been one day that my daughter hasn’t gotten some sort…

A FAMILY CURSE.

If you know my “original” family very well you probably already know what my family curse is. And when I say original I don’t mean vampires, I mean my parents and my brother. (I am positive there is a name for it but I am blanking as usual.) I am certain we have multiple family curses, because we all have exactly the same issues but we will just focus on the one for this post. Original Family Curse: We spill something at least once a day. If we are attending any sort of a party or event you can multiply…
