It Wasn’t A Dream

This is why you have kids. It's a sentence that is used in meme's, jokes,  and when you run out of toilet paper in the bathroom. This weekend, I discovered yet another reason why it's super helpful to have kids. Slight back story. The medicine I'm on for severe anxiety gives me ridiculously vivid dreams.... Continue Reading →

I’m Still Laughing

I've always been honest and open with Stella about how we became a family. She knows that I wasn't her first mom, and that she didn't grow in my belly. I tell her she grew in my heart for a really long time, before she even started to grow in her first mom's belly. We... Continue Reading →

Flu You

Wal-Mart. There aren't many places around here I loath more than Wal-Mart. If you read my post Prime Mom, you understand my hatred. I had to brave the Earthly Hell with fluorescent lighting to get Stella a new car seat. It went as well as could be expected. We were standing in an aisle as Stella picked... Continue Reading →

January’s the Worst

Welcome to January 287th. If this month is a precursor to the rest of the year I'm enthusiastically waving my white flag. I swear this month has been as long as all of 2017. We should have known when the month started on a Monday, it wasn't going to be pretty. It's cold, and not... Continue Reading →

Living With Dragons

This is a repost from my old blog site motherhuslter. This was one of my favorite posts I made there and wanted to share it with you. This was written about 2 years ago when I was fostering three toddlers. It was an endless fountain of material. I recently saw a meme online that pretty... Continue Reading →

Everything Hurts and I’m Dying: A Lesson on Thin Air

This is the story of our winter vacation over the past week. It did not go as planned, to say the least. Be prepared to laugh at my pain. The past week, Kent and I went to Snowshoe for a snowboarding trip. Kent knew what he was doing on a snowboard, I knew what one looked like.... Continue Reading →

Strange Traditions

Most normal families have certain traditions, especially at Christmas. My family is not what I would consider normal. With us, it's not so much the gift itself, but what absolutely ridiculous, absurd, impossible, and sometimes gross thing you have to do in order to get your gift. Yes, we are the family where any gift... Continue Reading →

Frozen

Here in the South, it stays miserably hot the majority of the time. It's normal to walk outside in August into over 100 degree heat and 2,000% humidity (i exaggerate a little). We are actually used to that nonsense. When Fall starts to show her beautiful face, you'll see people walking around in ski gear... Continue Reading →

Southern Snow

Snow in the South is a funny beast. We don't get it often, so when we do it's pure pandemonium. People lose all forms of common sense and logic. It's quite a spectacle. This past Friday morning, almost all of the state of Alabama woke up to the making of a winter wonderland. We knew... Continue Reading →

You Serious Clark?

I hate watching the news. HATE it. It's not that I don't want to be informed or aware, it just makes me mad or depressed. I'll read about it all eventually. Since the perv purge started, I'm terrified I'll see one of my childhood heroes or crushes implode my happy memories. If someone comes forward... Continue Reading →
