Stop what you're doing and read this. Flying has to be the weirdest human normalcy. I know that's sort of ironic, something normal being weird. But millions of people fly everyday and yet every aspect of it is weird. Hear me out. 1- goodness forbid that you want to pay for your cab ride on... Continue Reading →
Before Lincoln, I never thought twice about what I posted on social media. I was always a frequent user of many platforms, I loved sharing and I enjoyed seeing what friends were up to on a daily basis. Then Lincoln came and I started having these crazy ideas that my pictures had to be perfect.... Continue Reading →
would you rather?
Would you rather suffer a man cold or have a baby dealing with their first daycare sickness? Or would you rather deal with both, and have both suspects refuse to do anything about said sickness. I choose both - I mean, why not? They all say "Go Big or Go Home" right? My little rascal... Continue Reading →
This motherhood thing really never gets to a place where it feels normal to me. I'm not sure if it's supposed to get to that place, but if it is- I'm not there. I watch moms in the mall, at the park, on the plane, anywhere and some of them look so normal, like it's... Continue Reading →
daycare highs & nighttime lows..
The first week of daycare was hugely successful. Lincoln clamped on like a social butterfly, analyzing all of the 'big kids' moves. He had no problem adapting to their routine of 1 nap. He was put down for his regular morning nap but was having none of it knowing everyone else was still playing. So... Continue Reading →
just get me there – travel essentials!
We made it. We're officially Ottawaians...that's definitely not a word. but we're here. The boys did the 1300+ km drive while I was in Vancouver and seemingly they were in pretty good spirits. There are a few reasons why the drive & location change was made a little easier and I want to pass on... Continue Reading →
the final countdown
In 2 very quick and short weeks, Lincoln will be starting daycare. Fortunately at the right time a spot opened up and we were able to enrol him in a friends in home daycare. But at 9 months he's going to be the youngest by far and of course I'm nervous about everything. How he'll... Continue Reading →
8 months later & I still pee myself.
Lincoln is almost 8 months old…. getting ready for that instagram post where I can say he's been out for as long as he was in, or my personal goal 9 months on, 9 months off (that one is going to have to adjust a little bit). I definitely thought my body would be back... Continue Reading →
Dog days of Summer.
The days are winding down, our upcoming move is happening in four weeks and although the ducks are in some sort of row- I don't feel ready. I never thought Halifax would be my forever home, but the months turned into years and acquaintances turned into friends. I know Ottawa will have the same effect,... Continue Reading →
It's been WAY too long since my last blog post. Since that post I've started my new job and transitioned into working mama and obsessing over baby from 5-7 pm bedtime mama. People ask me all the time if I miss Lincoln, of course I do, but I also missed working. I missed feeling like... Continue Reading →
