How We Celebrated Mother’s Day

My first Mother’s Day as a mom of two is in the books! Jimmy and the kids made it really special in all the ways that I appreciate.

We started our celebrations on Saturday with coffee! Jimmy and Sadie picked up Starbucks and gave me new coffee beans to try out.

My mother-in-law watched Sadie for a few hours that morning and they came back with flowers and a balloon for me. So sweet! (more…)


Good and Hard

Something Sadie learned recently is that you can feel two emotions at once. She was so impressed with this revelation that she told me multiple times “You can be happy and sad at the same time!”

This week has been good and hard. We had us a day yesterday. Mordecai has had a goopy eye since being sick and I finally decided to call his pediatrician to see what I should do about it. They wanted to check him out, so we went to the doctor’s office and found out he has an eye and ear infection. A twofer 😂
