It’s Elf on the Shelf season.
And as much as I love to see the shenanigans that my friends’ elves get up to, I just can’t get it together to do the same for my kids.
In fact, most nights I can’t even remember to MOVE the elf – and Even Steven has to run down in the morning before the kids come
It’s that magical time of year, where Santa is watching every single move my kids make.
He sees them when they’re sleeping. He knows when they’re awake.
He knows when Miles is wiping boogers on his wall and when Alice doesn’t change her underwear for days at a time. He sees them when they ta

But when I was a kid, I loved searching for my Easter
Sometimes I have the easiest job in the world. When Similac reached out to me earlier this year about a possible blog partnership to help put an end to the mommy wars – it sounded too good to be true.
Sort of like if someone were to call me and say, “Listen – we want to pay you to love your famil
I’m teaming up with Hallmark for another six months, and I’m so excited about it. I love their products, I love their brand, and they’re an amazing company to work with.
I mean – these people have a serious sense of humor!
And sometimes I think they’re making things specifically with me in mi
If you’re a mom, you know how hard it can be to make mom friends.
Especially in the beginning.
When you’re sleep-deprived and covered in spit up and trying to explain to your child-free friends the benefits of the latch system in your car and the struggles of a good latch when it comes to fee
