Captain’s Log Day 2,766

These past couple of weeks have been hard. Motherhood is so hard sometimes. I’m running on little sleep, and my patience bank is in the red. All of the kids have been trying me in their own ways. Work has been stressful with ever-changing COVID procedures too. I’m single parenting most of the time because […]

Noa’s One Week Update

Yesterday Noa turned one week old. Time is flying by, I just want her to stay this little forever. She is definitely coming out of that sleepy phase. Yesterday she was more alert when she was awake, and was awake for longer when she was up. She stayed up a teeny bit later last night […]

Let It Snow // Captain’s Log Day 2181

Sunday we had our first blizzard of the season. We only got about 4 inches of snow, but the wind was ferocious, drifting the snow everywhere. I woke up Sunday morning and peeked out the window, surprised to find there was nothing on the ground yet – the news reported the storm rolling in at […]

Capitain’s Log: Day 2078

We took the kids out to the park a couple days ago while the weather wasn’t too cold. they’ve been getting cabin fever, and with the Midwest weather – ever changing – it makes it hard to make plans to go outside. One day it will be nearly seventy degrees outside and then it will […]

Survival Mode

This week has been rough guys. All five of us have RSV after Sylas brought it home from school exactly a week ago. I’m constantly wearing someone else’s mucus, chasing kids around going from nose to nose with a box of tissues trying to keep it under control. One sneeze and Niagara falls cuts loose. […]
