    If You Say You Don’t Want Kids, I Have Just One Thing To Say To You.

    This has been a really hard week. We have been in the middle of a crazy heat wave, with no relief in the evening and my son has decided that sleeping at night just isn’t for him. I have now spent three nights out on the couch, not really sleeping. I am exhausted and hot and trying to find the mental strength to get through the next day. It’s moments like this I wish I had unlimited amounts of money and time and I could just hop a flight to an exotic destination and just go relax on the beach. I don’t even care if it’s just for a few days. READ MORE

    The Loneliness

    After Lillian was born and my 6 weeks of maternity leave was up, I headed back to work part time. I worked 5am-9am so Luke took care of her in the morning, then dropped her off with me on his way to work, and Lils and I would walk home for the day. While the hours were super early, and I worked for a remote call center, I still had some guaranteed adult interaction five days a week which was so great and awesome and necessary. READ MORE
