Getting Them Greens In

    I recently wrote a post on what a struggle meal time is with my daughter, Maximara. What’s funny is she will eat while we are out, pretty much anything we give her. But when we are home she knows she has the pantry and refrigerator to raid and pretty much refuses to eat…

Bad Moms

This movie. I read a lot of bad reviews on it but I thought it was fucking hysterical. Like laugh out loud funny – am I the only one?! In the moments when I wasn’t laughing my ass off at the movie it had me thinking….I feel like we all have a little ‘bad mom’ in…

The Nightmare that is Mealtime

    When I was pregnant with Maximara my husband and I read all of the books on French parenting and were like determined to raise our kid to be the best eater of all time. We started her on solids early, 4 months, and made sure to always give her a bite of what…

Fever Phobia

    Let me first just get this out there, I am NOT a doctor. If you are concerned about your child’s fever and/or symptoms call your doctor immediately. OK, phew. Glad we got that out of the way. My daugher, Maximara, had her first sick visit (at 18 months, go us!)  with our doctor…

There Is No Time Like The Present

  If you have followed my journey via this blog or social media in the past year or so you know that I recently shut down my apparel company to focus more of my time on my growing toddler, Maximara Monroe. The goal was to close up shop so I could spend quality time raising our…

If My Kid Is Being An Asshole, Tell Me

  I swear there was a meme or scary mommy post going around FB about this recently, did any of you see it?! Anyway, I always believed this but after today. holy. shit. I can’t stress it enough. Please you guys! if my kid is acting out in any way shape or form, please tell…

Less is More

    It’s funny as a kid, and by ‘kid’ I mean annoying teenager, I was all about more. More clothes, more makeup, more shoes, more whatever the fuck it was that would make my room an utter mess. I hated making my bed. I lived in a constant state of chaos. I think that’s…
