A Heart Warming Story for Your Day

My husband Marc has been traveling for work.  As you well know, doing bedtime alone with multiple kiddos is comparable to juggling seven balls, three bowling pins and a chainsaw.  It’s been fun to say the least.  But last night, Marc didn’t have a work dinner so he was able to Facetime with

Parenting is Tough to Plan

Whoa – time is flying by!  I apologize for turning into quite the slacker with updating my blog.  Roman turned one year old and Everett had his first day of Pre-school all in one week.  Now that I’ve had time to chew on this and fully digest it, my brain

Where Did the Year Go?

The fact that a year has gone by since I got to hold and kiss my sweet Roman for the first time is mind-blowing. Life with two kids under three began with the realization that I needed to cut myself some slack. If you're headed down this path, or right

What a Week

Okay, I’m just unable to stay quiet on this (big surprise, I know) – the Confederate Flag.  Before I go any further, let’s just start with a quick history question:  What years did the Civil War take place?  If you were unable to quickly say 1861–1865, then this discussion shouldn’t

Half Way!

Baby weight, be (half) gone! Twenty pounds down, 20 to go! I've really been concentrating on the food ... now it's time to get my butt back into my running shoes and hit my beloved Madison bike paths, trails and routes. I haven't been letting weight loss rule my world,

Thoughts from the Heart

I’d like to chat about something that’s been sitting heavy on my heart.  I wasn’t sure how to reach out, but think maybe my blog is a good spot to start.  A few weeks ago, WKOW morning show anchor, Dani Maxwell went into labor with her triplet boys.  She was

Mother’s Day

All I want is breakfast.  I LOVE breakfast.  I feel like you can eat a little more carelessly because you’ve got the entire day to work it off and make better choices.  Plus, I love breakfast food.  Eggs and bacon and sausage and toast and pancakes … oh my, it’s

Bye Bye Baby Weight

Alright, here I am: week five of “get my body back after having a baby.”  I am completely aware of why people do this human being-creating in their 20’s.  What I would give to have that metabolism back.  Now don’t get me wrong.   I’ve never been the thin girl, but

A Motherly Perspective of a Tragic Event

It was really weird being on national news for something unrelated to the Badgers – or Scott Walker’s possible run for president.  But there it was, dark and early this morning as I sat in my reclining rocker with my six month-old son, Roman.  As I stared at his sweet
