    Mother’s Day 2018 Gift Guide

    Pretty sure this is my first Mother’s Day as a full-time blogger. Aside from that being completely awesome and a huge accomplishment in itself, it’s also probably why I waited till Mother’s Day in Mexico to write my Mother’s Day Gift Guide. So apologies in advance for the super tardy blog post…but if you’re a working mom too, I think…

    Getting Toddlers to Sleep

    Cash has always been a busy busy boy so it’s only natural that he needs his sleep. I can still remember the first night I started sleep training him around 1 year old. He cried the minute I put him in his crib and I sat outside his door, also crying. It’s not easy getting kiddos to sleep in their…

    Summer Style

    Summer is right around the corner for us Orange County locals and I couldn’t be happier. I grew up by the beach so I was always the girl rockin’ jean shorts and flip flops whenever I could.

    No Drip Toddler Popsicles

    When Cash was sick, I learned that nothing beats a sore throat better than a cold, sweet popsicle. I also weighed the pros and cons of letting a 2-year-old suffer from a sore throat or get popsicle drippings EVERYWHERE. Let me tell you, I really contemplated letting him suck it up because cleaning up purple and red drip stains every…

    Co Parenting

    There’s this really weird look I get when I tell people I’m still friends with my ex, or as I like to call him, My Baby Daddy (side note: he calls me Baby Momma). It’s a bit like a deer in headlights or that I’m about to say “JUST KIDDING” and walk away. But it’s actually the truth. We are…

    A Strong Single Mom

    Dear Quick-to-Judge I see you — staring at me with a baby on my hip,┬áIt’s obvious I’m “a little frantic.” I see how fast you judge me and how quickly your eyes go to my wedding finger. There’s no ring on there. Trust me I’ve checked. But don’t feel sorry for me, don’t think my life is a wreck, that…
