Summer Outtakes Behind the Scenes

Hey Cuties, Happy Labor Day to ya.  I've been soaking up this long weekend by doing a lot of nothing. The Manchild completed his first week of 8th grade and LittleCuteLips starts Kindergarten on Wednesday. I picked up some last minute school supplies and today is wash day. I shared a lot of post about the dope things we did this summer. There are some things I didn't quite include.

Dear Dad, I have Daddy Issues

Hey Cuties, Last weekend the family and I took a road trip to North Carolina. I wasn’t sure if this was a trip I wanted to take; I hadn’t been there in eleven years. The last time I went it was out of obligation a bit. I had been a year prior to bury my uncle and I was about six month pregnant with my first child. The family was so excited to see me and excited to see that I was going to be a Mom. So I returned a year later with my eleven month old son for a visit.

Dear Son, I want you to know…

Hey Cuties, I've gotten a bit personal today; I've been all in my feelings about parenting. My son is wrapping up his last two months of elementary school and I feel some type of way. I'm far too young {36} to have a middle school child. It seemed like this phase was light years away, yet we are here. I'm sharing a love letter to my son, my first born.

Currently – January 2016

Hey Cuties,

What is currently going on? I'm juggling a lot of things; I don't feel like I'm 100% on top of them but I'm surviving. The weather folks are guessing that we are about to get a foot of snow dumped on us today and into the weekend. Hello Blizzard 2016! Don't worry, I have cinnamon buns, brownie mix, cake mix, and chocolate melts. Hello #FatSnacks and DIY crafts to share with my cuties. I hope you are safe, you are warm and you have fun things to do or wine to sip.

5 Things my Toddler taught me about Separation Anxiety

Hey Cuties,

How was your weekend? Did you go from a 60 degree Sunday to a 37 degree Monday? Well we did, and it's downright rude and disrespectful. I went to Philly and I can't wait to share my recap with you. It won't go up until next Monday because this week is Nori week on the blog. She is "My Girl" his "Fats" she is our second and final child and our only girl. She is funny, she is shy, she is bold, she is a lot of things but she will very lovingly give you the side eye of death. She is no stranger to the blog at all. If you follow me on social media then you see the pictures of me tackling her hair each week or her prancing around life in a tutu. She turns four years old tomorrow and she has been counting down since October.
