Why I Want My Kids to Have {Less} Fun

Because I am so mean. The end. Not really. I think this could sound crazy, but now that I’m emerging from toddlerhood I am realizing so many ways that I have prioritized things that entertain my kids. There are so many FUN things to do here in Dallas, which is a blessing. But now my […]

Why Christmas Morning at Home Is Awesome (and Why Travel Is Overrated)

Last year, my kids woke up in their own home on Christmas morning for the first time. They were seven and three. When my daughter was young, we would head to my mom’s house. Or, we flew to Dallas to spend the holidays with my husband’s family. After the move to Dallas four years ago, […]

Pssst, mamas with strollers: over here. Past the “best” Santa for photos, and the coordinated ornaments, and sleigh rides, and cookie exchanges. Over here, near the baby changing table. I want to tell you something. You don’t have to do it ALL this holiday. Not this year. Not right now. Give yourself lots of grace. You […]

{Surviving} Hyperemesis Gravidarum in Pregnancy

Apparently my mom told me stories of her “difficult” pregnancies before I was expecting my first, but I don’t remember that at all. Mom was really sick, and lost a lot of weight, and couldn’t keep working. I have a new appreciation for her pain now that I have (barely) survived hyperemesis gravidarum during all three […]
