Mom Putting Up a Christmas Tree Alone… (No one dies.)

When I told my husband I planned on putting up a Christmas tree alone, he valiantly attempted to talk me out of it. He was scheduled to be out of town for work until just before Christmas.

So against my husband’s advice, my six-year-old and I decided to “surprise” Daddy with a tree all by ourselves. While I promised my son we would get a […]

My husband hates turkey. No matter how it’s prepared, he’ll complain. My uncle voted for Trump and my cousin is still feeling the Bern.

And so are these moms from across the web.   I’m thankful for white noise machines and […]

Working on sleep training, working on potty training, working on NOT telling Grandma “I hate you and I wish you would go back to Florida”. (Any tips on that last one are more than welcome. That’s why there’s a comments section below.) But I never thought I’d lose sleep Googling, “how to get boys to pee standing up.” […]
