Motherhood is complicated. 

Not only are the emotions of my three year old a rollercoaster, for example: 

"Mom - Stop Talking to me." 

"Mom - TALK. Talk to me!" 

"Mom - look at me dance. MOM" 


"Mom, I love you." 

"Mom, you are a stoopy poopy head."

We're heading into the winter season, or what I like to call - cold season.  As I was checking my son out from daycare, I saw a sign I always dread: GREEN ROOM - 1 CASE OF CROUP. 

This past weekend, I felt like Teddy was getting a cold and now I think M m...

Thank you for getting up at 4 a.m. to travel for work - allowing yourself to help with bedtime the night before and giving me peace of mind so I can sleep through the night.

Thank you for making yourself a note to pick me up flo...
