January 31, 2019

We’re barely into week two of potty training and while I’m well aware we don’t have all (or any) of the answers I thought it would be helpful to share our honest approach and experience so far. So much of what I’ve read online personally makes the whole thing feel like absolute torture or a complete fairytale and I’m here to tell you it’s been neither for us (despite these misleading bubbles).

What Becoming a Mother Means to Me Today

January 20, 2019

I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to become a mother over the past month or so.

First and foremost I wanted to say happy New Year!

November 9, 2018

Since our whole preschool fiasco I’ve been really trying to create a healthy structure to our mornings at home. This, of course, doesn’t replace the social element to school we were hoping to experience (I’m planning on writing another post on how we’re tackling that), but I’ve found our days move so much smoother when I’m more intentional with how our mornings begin.
