My Solo Mama Routine w/ an Infant & Three Year Old

The scariest thing about having a second baby for me is taking care of that baby and my three year old while my husband is away. I lost a lot of sleep while pregnant thinking about how there was no possible way I could care for another baby alone. And then when Baby Brother Stroller […]


I’ve been pretty absent lately, and my only excuse is I haven’t really known what to say about life the last few months. I’m still not sure if I can write anything that accurately conveys what it’s been like around here, but I want to give it a shot. Since long before I was married or […]
