How can you not love Scary Mommy?!



I am your parent. You are my child.

This made me cry!

Beautiful !

Never been so happy to take #antibiotics ! I want to get better fast to keep up with my little guy again.


Brayden is going crazy for this green smoothie! He has been dragging his sippy cup with him everywhere. The best part is it’s actually healthy!

Ingredients: 1handful of spinach, 1/2 cup of yogurt, 1 peach, 5 strawberrys, pineapple, and about 2 tablespoons of orange juice. Plus I watered his down after I poured mine.

My precious, precious little boy. He is all that matters.

Since he is asleep, I’ll take the moment to nap also. I still feel horrible. Tomorrow I go to the dr. I can’t wait to pick up antibiotics. I have a nasty sinus infection that has kicked my butt.

Despite it all I happily jump out of bed at 6 in the morning to read with Ale – Bob the Builder, & Cars and Trucks and Things That Go. For him i can even muster the energy to take him to story and song time at the YMCA.

Now I sleep with my sweet boy.



Go on a child led DISCOVERY WALK! These walks can be done in your own backyard—there is so much to discover out there. Mom/Dad grab your journal and pen, camera, and discovery bag to gather all your treasures and follow your child’s lead. Let them take you around the yard and have them…


I’m still not feeling well. I made a dr’s appointment for Wednesday. My mother in law is here and helping out a ton. Ale is having a lot of fun with her. I’m not 100% but its cozy at home.

Ale is so sweet. I told him that I needed lots of kisses to get better. He then gave me a big wet one on my cheek. I definitely felt better!

Well remember how Ale was sick at the beginning of the week—- Guess what- now I’m sick!

Today I’m staying home from work curled in my bed reading and coughing.

I tell you these day care germs are tough! This year I seem to catch the tail end of all of Ale’s colds. Plus it does not help that I sleep about 4 hours a night since my little man wakes up about 20,000 times.

His sleeping habits are getting bad again. He out right refuses to sleep in his crib. He just crawls into our bed. I give up and let him stay as I’m so sleepy. My husband and I talk of Ale sleeping in his crib AND in his room like its something so far off and impossible.

The goal is to get him in his room by the summer.

Any tips, thoughts on how I can do this?

Sooo happy Ale woke up this morning and did not have a fever. He was happy talking and wanted to play. What a relief!!

Right now he is in his daycare. I was able to run a few errands. Now it’s the cleaning marathon! My mother in law is coming on Saturday! Yikes!! She will be with us for 10 days!!!! So I’ve got to get things in order.

On your mark! Get set ! Clean!…….
