A Unified Front

MOOOMMMMM can I have some ice cream?” whines my two and a half-year old one bright early morning.

“No Max you cannot have ice cream at 8 am…”

This is the moment you see my toddler take three steps to the right and plant his big blue eyes in front of my husband.

DAAAAADDDD can I have some ice cream?”

While this strategy is not smart due to lack of distance, it is a defining moment in our house.

The moment your child tries to divide and conquer their parents.

The look so damn innocent right? DO not be fooled, LOL

My two and a half years old is beginning to understand the idea that he can hedge his bets that we may not agree on something. He does not understand that this could bring on deep philosophical debates between adults.

What to do next in my career?

Jul 11, 2014 by

As you know I have been working in a new job which I accepted while I was 11 weeks pregnant. It has been tough to be the newbie and pregnant with a toddler, and then having a newborn but in the end it has been totally worth it. Lately though I have been sitting back and really thinking about my career.

I know thinking is a hard commodity to come by these days between getting up for night feedings, working a new job, and adjusting to being the primary breadwinner but I’ve found myself pondering what’s next for me in my career?

I work in a corporate environment as a technical sales person, basically I sell chemicals, reagents, and instruments for scientists to use during research and development. I get to use my brain and learn new things every day. So while I am happy with my current career I have not figured out what I want to do to advance my career path?

Mommy Mush Brain

Jun 27, 2014 by

Before kids I was the most organized, put together, type A person you could meet. I was the organizer of social calenders, always early on work projects and never missed a deadline.

Fast forward to today.


I have dubbed this condition “Mommy Mush Brain

I have literally forgotten a simple thought two seconds after having it. I have done the classic go to get something from another room and forget what said thing is when I get there.

I have forgotten weekend plans, then see the reminder pop up on my phone an hour before and scramble to get the kids, and a gift for the party.

I have forgotten to tuck my boob back into my bra…as any normal person knows flashing is unacceptable. I would like to apologize to my neighbors.

My hair is falling out

You would think from the title this blog is going to be about how stressed I am (which who isn’t as a working mother, LOL) but NO this little piece is going to be about the wretched thing that happens after having a baby.

When you find out you are knocked up and hopefully past the first trimester, your hair and sometimes nails become strong, healthy and shiny. Between the hormones coursing through your body and the horse pill pre-natals, most women’s hair become luscious and satiny.

You look like this when pregnant!

For anyone who knows me they know I have crazy thick hair. I love it, even though sometimes it takes a lot to control and over an hour to dry (I can’t even remember the last time I blew dry my hair). So tack on some pre-natals and I look like a GOD DAMN hair model with extensions.
