Guest Post for The REAL Toni Hammer!

She’s real, yo. So real.

Toni asked me if I’d write a guest post for her over at Is It Bedtime Yet? Something I was so excited to do. I’ve never guest blogged before! It was actually really flattering, and really fun!

The post is up here. I have to warn you – it starts off with some pretty tough things about parental relationships, specifically one line about me and my mom, but I hope it takes the turn to funny. It’s all true (though was written intentionally to be funny, so maybe a little exaggerated)!

Enjoy! If you like it, follow Toni’s blog while you’re at it. You’ll like it! She’s the bees knees.



Why Two Blog Moms?

Why Two Blog Moms?.

A new project encompassing the humor and honesty of parenting through two different perspectives, but one goal: to give new parents a place to go, laugh and learn without the feeling of being judged by your decisions as a parent.

Last Post: New Blog

This blog was set up to document the trials and tribulations of incubating a small human. The events in the blog were solely my experiences and not at all something that every pregnant woman would go through. I wanted to write things down in an honest and humorous way, but also to keep a record of what it was like so I can look back and remember what it’s like being pregnant in the event I decide to do it again.

I might post a few more posts here, but since the pregnancy is over, I’m starting a new blog.

Letters to Little is going to be the new place to find me. This will primarily contain notes and letters to my daughter in the same style that I always write. Hopefully with honesty and humor, but always with a purpose.

I had hoped to write things down in a journal, but typing is faster. When someone is pooping or eating every 20 minutes, time is of the essence. It’s really a means of writing down things that I hope to share with Baby A as she grows up, and will likely not be of interest to anyone. However, I like to jot things down (especially since baby brain doesn’t go away!) and I want to make sure that she has something to look back on.

Feel free to swing by if you like. But for now, this blog will be closed down for business – unless we end up with another Little in the future, or a few “I wish I did X while pregnant” posts.

Thanks for following, and I hope to see you over at the new blog.

A 6 Year Old Takes On Classic Literature. Hilarity Ensues.



My friend BJ posted this on Facebook, and I couldn’t help but share this as well.

“Judging a Book By Its Cover: A 6-Year-Old Guesses What Classic Novels Are All About”

Clicky Clicky for the article/blog post. 

Just to give you a taste, my personal favorite is Wuthering Heights.

“It looks weird. I think this must be a book about a tree. I would not read a book about just a tree. And it looks like it’s a sad tree too since it has no friends.”

HuffPo Article: 10 Things I Want My Daughter To Know Before She’s 10

I was very fortunate to have people / adult figures in my lifetime start teaching me these when I was in my teens and twenties. Hopefully, we can impart these things on our daughter much earlier. I think she’ll be better for it.
