Epic Mom Fail of the Year... Already

I mentioned on Facebook the other day that last year was a lot of talk and not as much action as I'd like. Since I am nothing if not a woman of her word, I decided to get on that saddle and get shit started right away this year.So, instead of prolonging things and waiting it out, I decided it was best to get my Epic Mom Fail of the Year out of the way before we even got five days of 2015 under our belts. Go big or go home, right guys? Because #YOLO!Somehow, through a combination of a giant misunderstanding and gross negligence on my part (this is one of those times when my husband breaks out his favorite nickname for me: NegliJenny. Yeah. Hilarious.), I managed to order tickets for Disney Princesses and Heroes on Ice while thinking I purchased Frozen on Ice tickets. I know this doesn't sound epic. It might even sound borderline silly. But you are not the parent of my kids and you did not witness their crushing disappointment.Let's back up....more

10 Reasons I Know Your Kid Isn't Your First

Before I start this post, let me say that I'm not making fun of you, New Moms. Well. I am making fun of you, but I'm making fun of me too. I was you.

Hands-On Gifts for Your Budding Scientists

I'm all for fun toys that let kids be kids, but if you give my kids something awesome that also happens to teach them a thing or two, you're pretty much the bee's knees in my book. (Sidenote: What the hell does that even mean? I'm just trying to say that you're pretty fantastic. I'm just not sure what's so fantastic about a bee's knees.) ...more

Clean Eating Snack Ideas

I don't know about you, but I need a detox. There is WAY too much post-Halloween sugar running through my veins right now. This revelation may or may not have been brought on by the fact that I sat on my iPhone this weekend and shattered the screen. Or maybe it has something to do with my 7-year old talking about how big my butt is all weekend (both before and after the now infamous phone crushing experience)....more

DIY Googly Eye Halloween Wreath

Sometimes I go through these phases where I feel like my creativity well has completely dried up. Every idea that I have seems to originate from Pinterest (which I usually love but all of a sudden detest) and it sends me into a downward spiral that ends up in me asking my husband what I’m doing with my life....more
