Momo is NOT real, but I’ll tell you what is

Momo is NOT real, but I’ll tell you what is

Okay, so I know I’m always late to the game, but have you heard of Momo? I just heard about her. She’s this freaky girl who supposedly flashes up spontaneously while your kid is watching YouTube Kids and then tells them to go do harmful things to themselves. Yikes!!!! At first I avoided looking Momo…

Should I keep writing this blog? And other things I think about at 3am

Should I keep writing this blog? And other things I think about at 3am

Last night I woke up at like 3 in the morning and I started stressing about everything. Things always seem worse in the middle of the night. My brain was rapid firing like a million anxieties. What am I going to pack in the kids’ lunches? Don’t forget to call the plumber tomorrow. I can’t…

Oh nooooo, our pet died and the kids are taking it very, uhhh, weirdly

Oh nooooo, our pet died and the kids are taking it very, uhhh, weirdly

So I’m giving Holden a bath the other night when suddenly I hear Zoey screaming bloody murder from the other room. I can’t tell you how many times this happens in our house on a daily basis. Because she stubs her toe, or she can’t fix her pants that are inside-out, or she finds one…

A cheat sheet for my hubby this Valentine’s Day

We don’t do Valentine’s Day gifts. Nope nope nope, never have never will. When we first started dating it was right before Valentine’s Day, so we agreed to do pizza on the couch and NO GIFTS because WTF do you get someone for V-Day when you’ve just started dating. Anyways, fast forward to last week…
