Don’t forget you love to swim…

So, sometimes the week goes so great. I feel like I’m on it… Laundry? Bam. Washed, dried, folded, and put away. Meals? On it. Planned, budgeted, shopped, and even crockpotted. Dishes? Sparkling.

That might even be a little dream of your’s too! And sometimes that dream is shattered, due to a certain 1 1/2-year-oldContinue reading “Sometimes Dreams Don’t Work Out”

Swift Mama: My Hour of Desperation. I mean Inspiration

There was a text message that I sent to mama friends one morning and it spurred an idea. What if we all shared crazy moments in our days? Would it make us all feel a little more normal? grateful? Would it add some much-needed laughter or even pent-up tears after laughing? Anyway, it seemed like a goodContinue reading “Swift Mama: My Hour of Desperation. I mean Inspiration”
