Truthful Tuesday- Naps

I don't like naps. Say whaaaaaa?????? I know, I know. It always sounds like a great idea but then I wake up grumpier than I was before. My brain is in a fog and I can't shake it off. On the other hand, I really, really, really want my kids to nap. Teddy hasn't napped … Continue reading Truthful Tuesday- Naps

Truthful Tuesday- Alone time

I'm an ambivert. I can be quite social and outgoing, especially via the internet but the truth is, I need quiet downtime. I need me time. All by myself. Honestly, it's been the hardest thing about being a mother. Once my son started school, and then my daughter began preschool, I felt so much more … Continue reading Truthful Tuesday- Alone time

Truthful Tuesday- Judgey McJudgey

I heard "Monday Confessions" on the radio yesterday. I also used to be on a forum that had "flame free Friday confessions." My confession: I totally judge confessions!

Just give me five … Continue reading Truthful Tuesday- I hit snooze

I grew up poor and in low-income housing. Sometimes, we would tour manufactured housing (which … Continue reading Truthful Tuesday- House Hunting

Truthful Tuesday- Moving

If you read yesterday's post, then you know I'm moving to North Carolina sometime soon. We don't have an exact date yet. It's about 4 hours from where I currently live. This time,  my mother and youngest brother have decided to move as well. This is the fifth move in less than three years for … Continue reading Truthful Tuesday- Moving

Truthful Tuesday- Kids

If you follow me on Social Media, especially Facebook, then you'll know that my husband has been traveling a lot for work lately. I'm so totally over it. It's good for him professionally, and basically, just something we have to deal with right now until his next store is ready (we're in a contract so … Continue reading Truthful Tuesday- Kids
