Potty training can be quite the journey. The day after my daughter turned two I plopped her on her little princess potty. My goal was to get her potty trained right away! After a week of her fighting potty...

Dear Broke Mama

Dear Broke Mama, I see you flipping through your Instagram feed, admiring the white granite countertops and freshly highlighted hair of the mama bloggers you follow. I see the way you then look at your small home, longing for...
It's day 12 of 14. There is currently $29.66 in the account. Two more days until pay day. Two more days of trying to make it stretch. Is there gas in my car? Is there gas in my husband's...

0
Motherhood is the single hardest thing I’ve ever done. And yet I can barely say done in the past tense because I wake up every morning before I fully feel rested, okay before I fully feel human, and motherhood...
For years I have put my kids first. I have made sure that they made it to their doctor appointments on time (mostly), they have all of their school supplies, and that they have a memorable birthday complete with...
  It's true. Six years ago, as new parents, my baby daughter was accidentally left in the car. And I am bravely coming out to speak about it, publicly, so that I might inspire some awareness and compassion. So now...

Anxiety Disorders are the most common mental illness in the US and affect 40 million adults. I was an anxious child, an anxious young adult, and now I am an anxious mother. Or rather, I am a mother who focuses...
Don't judge me. I have never made up an activity for my kids. We have never finger painted, or gathered leaves for an art project, or made molecules out of marshmallows. I have never searched online for a new...
Is there some mean fairy that sends out secret messages to all kids on their second birthday? It really seemed like a switch flipped after my daughter turned two. Everything was a battle from what I made for dinner to...
It happened again. I was watching my 12 year old twins ride motorized animal scooters at Artegon Marketplace when two ladies sitting on a bench struck up a conversation with me. “Are those your granddaughters?” one asked. “No,” I said...
I held my one year old on my hip and sipped from my beer. Of course I forgot to bring my wrap today, I thought. I shifted her weight and she nuzzled her nose into my shoulder. “It’s gorgeous out...
