So last week about this time I think I was telling all of you I’m not ready for school to start yet. Well, I’ve changed my mind. We’ve had cool temperatures all week, Birdie has been home all day every day, and all I can think about is warm tea, fall decorations, and a quiet […]

I need a little escapism right about now. These long last weeks of summer are hard on a parent, aren’t they? Let’s all pretend we’re not parents for the afternoon, don a pair of Kitty Ears Hair Clips from Wunway, and ignore all those human things that are slowly driving us nuts. Alrighy? Good. Meow.

The highlights of my week were definitely not the two days Birdie was home sick from day camp, nor was it the sinking feeling that I was getting sick too. It also wasn’t the feeling that I should have been working much harder than I was able to. Nope. Instead the highlights of my week were taking […]

Another week of summer is slipping away, and with it so goes July too. Are you ready for the end of summer county fairs and back to school prep? Nah, I’m not either.

Sometimes at the end of the week, the outcome can surprise you. I thought it was just an average week. But thanks to a slightly lighter workload, and a flipped daily schedule (due to Birdie’s day camp), the two of us girls actually spent the week with a ton of quality time. So much so, that […]

What a week! I think I celebrated my 40th birthday about as best as I possibly could. And being on the other side of it, 40 isn’t bad at all. I’m doing just fine. Plus, it’s the perfect excuse for everyoe to tell me how young I look, which I’ll take – even if it’s […]

Thumbnail image for round about: kid car hacks & virtual summer camps

We’re in the thick of it now, aren’t we? Summer camps, summer road trips, the boredom of our children, the hot sun, and all those other summer things that keep us occupied. And yet our regular lives are still there demanding our attention too: workloads, house cleaning, to-do lists, and responsibilities. Why is it every […]
