Archie’s Black Eye

A few days before Halloween this year I walked into an honest to goodness horror movie scene starring my own kid. Blood all over the floor, blood all over my two-year-old. I was so incredibly mortified I froze with my hands up in the air. In case you've been wondering about that black eye from [...]

Oops! The Elf

With our living space being so open and the boys being too young to know not to touch the elf, our creativity is a little limited when it comes to his day to day activities. Thankfully I have a collection of fellow mommies with toddlers who post their ideas to Facebook and Insta for me [...]
