What Kind Of Mom Am I?

What Kind Of Mom Am I?

"Mom, I need a bandaid," Sam says as he walks towards me with a scraped and bleeding finger. It's his third or fourth injury since we arrived at our campsite the day before. "Oh buddy... you used our only bandaid yesterday on your knee when you fell," I said to him....

Run, Wine Tour, Rest, Repeat

Run, Wine Tour, Rest, Repeat

I'm very yin and yang; I like things to be balanced. I like running half marathons, but I also like vegging out on the couch binge watching Friends re-runs. I can go days without showering while we're camping, but then I'll soak in the tub for hours when we get home...

You’re Gonna F*ck Up

You’re Gonna F*ck Up

It's inevitable: you're gonna f*ck up. It's going to happen. You're going to make mistakes in life, in your career, in relationships and, most definitely, in motherhood. Oh motherhood: yeah, in that category you're gonna f*ck up real good. Maybe you'll forget to send...

In the Friend Zone

In the Friend Zone

When someone brings this into your house, it takes your relationship to the next level. It proves that you are more than just acquaintances, more than just people who bump into each other on the playground after parent-teacher conferences at your school. It symbolizes...

This Is 40: Time to Celebrate

For some people turning 40 isn't a big deal; it's just another birthday, just another year. For some people turning 40 is a huge deal; it's a defining moment, a moment that makes you stop and think about life as you know it. I'm in the second group. I wouldn't say I...

Swimsuits, Sunscreen and Beans

Sometimes the stars align and amazing things happen. A moment so fleeting you have to document it to remember that it really did happen. Sometimes… you and your six year old daughter agree on something. This doesn't happen often so I want to give credit where credit...

#MyBetter

Sometimes I don't feel like going for a run. Sometimes I don't feel like lifting weights at the gym. Sometimes I don't feel like stretching until my legs shake at a barre class. But then I put on my running shoes and head out the door. And half the battle is over....

Problem? Solution!

Problem? Solution!

Sometimes in life you come face to face with a problem you have to solve. You could ask for help, but you don't want to because you know you can figure this out on your own. After all, you are six years old. Sometimes that problem is your hair getting in the way while...

I Ate It

I Ate It

"She's been working on it for about twenty minutes," my husband says as I walk in the front door. I look around him to see my six year old daughter at the kitchen table, intently focused on something. "Working on what?" I ask. "Dessert," he answers. "Dessert? She's...

Things My Trainer Says

Things My Trainer Says

About 12 months ago, I met someone new. I wasn't expecting to meet anyone and I didn't think our relationship would intensify as quickly as it did. Before I knew it, we were seeing each other two, sometimes three times a week. Things got serious... fast. Yes, it's...
