A Break + Links

Screen-Free Week starts tomorrow and I’m taking the opportunity to sign off for a little while. Haven’t heard of Screen-Free Week? I wrote all about it over at Baby Gizmo in case you’re interested :) The kiddos will be 100% screen-free (or at least that’s the plan pending any major meltdowns), but I’ll be popping […]

Five Things

  One / / / I try really hard to go to bed between 10-11pm. Max still wakes often to nurse/snuggle at night and is up for the day between 6-7am so having 8ish hours of rest is necessary to a happy day. My “bed time” doesn’t always happen, but I try. Like now, it’s […]

Early Mornings

Today is early. Just like yesterday. And the day before. You see, I’m a night owl and this is not my cup of tea. Rising before the sun, choosing to embrace the day, filling sippies, and changing diapers. Last night I was up until midnight. I could have kept going; I was on a role […]
