Siobhàn Is Potty Training!

Okay, she’s really been training a few months now, technically. I started her at 12 months when I noticed she would poop and then march right over to me pulling at the diaper. Now if you’re thinking it’s early, that’s true. But I don’t believe a child should still be wearing diapers if they’re talking…

Motherhood

If motherhood has taught me nothing else, it is the true meaning of the phrase “beautiful mess” and the preciousness in appreciating every day and not letting life pass you by.

I realized there was nothing…
