Thank You October

I try not to take anything for granted. Admittedly I often do, but when it comes to accomplishing even the smallest of tasks together with my children, I feel like a million bucks. Sometimes in the moment, when I am out in public with all three trying to tackle a [...]

Scary Pregnant

I am getting scary pregnant. What exactly does “scary pregnant” mean you might ask? Well, to me, it means a few things… For one, it means that my belly is getting bigger. I have now reached the point that there is no hiding my pregnancy. Not that I was trying [...]
