Empty house for 3 minutes

I was just in my empty house for 3 minutes. It was amazing. I wanted to dance and scream and shout and sit down forever. I miss it so much. Parenthood 😭 and 😍 and 🤯 For anyone asking, I take an hour off each Wednesday to “pick up my kid” but husband decided best to keep it consistent so he will still do pick up. Kid JUST started daycare. My first early Wednesday, dinner plans was crockpot so ... More

Home Depot kids activities

Sooo this is just a lil PSA that I just learned about. Home Depot offers a free kids activity once a month!! Like a simple building project that you can do there. They provide the tools and the apron for the child. If you sign up ahead of time they will reserve a kit for you but you can also just walk in. We just walked in on Saturday to this happy little surprise and my daughter was thrilled!!

    I have been taking my kids to these for years. We love them and my kids love to get to use tools. I have also taken my childcare group if it happens to fall on the day they are here.

    UGH I used to do this when I was little and was always wondering if it was still there! YAYY!!!

Allergic to my mil

I mean, it’s either that or a pure coincidence that upon her arrival for the long weekend I began sneezing incessantly, eyes were watering, and I finally had to pop some Benadryl. 😂😱

    It was mostly a joke, but she is a walking perfume advertisement 😆🤦‍♀️

    My mil also loves strong perfume. I smell her for a couple days at my house after she leaves. I considered asking her not to wear such strong perfumes as it could hurt the baby 😂 but I now also immediately wash my baby if she smells like mil... I don’t need an olfactory memory of her whenever I hold my baby!!!

Sleeping face down, butt up. Why?

I've got a one year old who has recently taken to sleeping with his butt sticking up in the air. What's this about? I’m not worried, but definitely puzzled.

    Umm, freaked me out to no end and I dared not move him due to potential injury: his body was facing left, propped up on his side while his head was completely opposite facing right. Immediately reminded me of The Exorcist. Ultimately he was totally fine, but I honestly freaked out and it actually took my brain a few minutes to understand what I was seeing.

What do you miss most about not have kids?

So if you could go back in time before you had kid(s) what would you tell yourself not to take for granted. My top 3 1. Enjoy going to sleep whenever you want to. Even if its 8pm. 2. Running in the store for one thing ( in less than 5min) 3. Going to my car, getting in and leaving. So what's yours?

    When a vacation was just a vacation. I miss it so much. My kid is an amazing traveler and I guess we are lucky to even be able to travel and enjoy places with him but MAN the planning and packing is stressful.

    I miss the sex! 🤭 like constant everyday all day! But it’s okay! We try to work it in! Both our work schedules are pretty different and my son doesn’t really have a set sleep schedule.

What would be the female version of the name Lander?

    Lana? Lander means territory and looks like Lana has different meanings that include little rock

Dads & Moms and Teamwork

There's a mom & dad that are tag teaming their 3 & 1 year-old on our flight, & it's adorable! The dad managed to get seated in a row with the two kids, the mom stayed further back. The kids are super adorbs & the mom's taking each them for walks when she can. Meanwhile, the dad's hanging out with the other kid (kids when the seatbelt sign's on). It's super-fun to see all the teamwork!

Happy Mothers Day!

Mother is an undying love, a love beyond compare, the one you take your troubles to, she is the one who really cares. We are all of this and more! So glad we're moms, it's one more sweet thing to share. I hope you all have an awesome day. Happy Mothers Day! 😊

Archival Clothes? #Throwback

Parents, if you're holding onto your kids baby clothes, maybe don't feel so silly, maybe they're for your grandkids😊 My dad held onto my clothes. He's been sending them to us, and the 8, 6, & 4 y.o. gang here love them! It appears they lasted forever in part because my mom was big on preemptive clothing maintenance, check out those ironed in patches!

    I was thinking of saving some clothes for the next generation. If not for kids; at least some baby clothes.

Wedding anniversary? Celebrate 5yrs stupid?

Ok so we hit 5yrs next year. And I know everybody normally does a 10 yr celebration, but if my husband is up for it I want to do maybe like a big celebration (if it’s even possible as we live 24hrs away from all of our family) or maybe an informal vow renewal. In my mind the first 5 years are hard. That’s where you truly learn everything about each other and come to love it and become one. For ... More

    I think EVERY year you make is cause for a celebration. Whether it be big or small. The first five are the most trying.

    That’s what I was thinking. He’s in the military and the last five years was the hardest with him have to go out to sea and the we had a child who is turning two this year. We are still striving. Be nice to do that big celebration.

Hydration and milk production at night

I always try to stay super hydrated, but recently I thought, I need to gulp extra water before bed because I don’t wake up and drink water for 7+ hours while I sleep? Therefore, wouldn’t I have low supply in the mornings? But then I remember that night is when we produce the most milk due to some chemical stuff I don’t remember... so then does that chemical stuff basically create more milk pro... More

    I have no idea how it works, but I’m suffocating at night from the bricks on my chest! I try to avoid water at night, but I do get very thirsty! Probably because my body is taking all the water from me to make milk. I do notice that I don’t have the urge to pee when I wake up, like I usually do. When I do drink a lot of water, I end up having to pump or else I’m soaked through my breast pads

    I try to buy similar if not exactly the same like we both have same Nike shoes I got as matching Adidas outfits. I sometimes shop dmfrom the young man section to find a botton down shirt and it works out fine :)
