Travel and the 18 Month Sleep Regression

When Lil Miss Wagon was 19 months old, we took a trip to visit family about 4 hours away. Before our trip, LMW was sleeping beautifully: going to bed around 6:15pm and falling asleep on her own every night, sleeping all night long. Plus she took a 2-3 hour nap every day. Her 5am wakeups [...]

My Mommy Makeup Routine

As a WOHM (Work Out of Home Mom), I’m faced with the daily challenge of making myself presentable each morning with a very limited amount of time and energy to do so. There are a couple of areas where I still need to get my act together (ahem, hair and wardrobe) but I’ve pretty much [...]

18 Month / 4 Year Update

Now that Lil Miss Wagon is getting older and Wagon Jr. is 4 years old, I’ve decided to just do updates when we get updated stats from the pediatrician.
