I spent this past weekend in Seattle visiting my long distance life partner. We made it a whole 2.5 days after California before booking another flight. I brought Thomas with me this time so we spent most of the four days chasing around three crazy kids. The highlight of the weekend was that Thomas and Miller FINALLY … Continue reading Seattle trip
Alicia and I spent our birthday’s in LA this past weekend and I am already ready to go back. We landed in the morning, and since our hotel check in wasn’t until later, we headed straight for the Hollywood Sign. We probably should have researched our hike BEFORE we got there because we had absolutely … Continue reading Hollywood Sign
We went to Sesame Street live this weekend! It was AMAZING. Not one tear from Thomas and only four tears from Michéal (jk, he was a trooper). These pictures have absolutely ZERO to do with this blog post topic, but because my experience with breastfeeding was so tramatizing, I don’t have any photos to document … Continue reading Dear Breastfeeding, I think we should see other people.
Traveling with a baby/toddler sucks. No matter how prepared you are — it is super stressful, but after 4 international flights and 6 domestic flights with a baby (half of which I was on my own) I would like to think I am pretty good at it. Whatever you do, try not to overpack your … Continue reading Traveling with Kids

Also, because it snowed a ton and trying to clean off a car and load a sick baby and then commute the two hours downtown on an unplowed expressway sounds horrendous. So it just feels like a … Continue reading Weekendz
Yesterday, Micheal and I agreed to disagree (JK we didn’t even agree on that). It was the “2nd to last football game of the year” **eye roll** and he wanted to go meet his friends at the bar to watch it. After a few minutes of good ol’ healthy arguing about why he should stay home … Continue reading Is “Dad-Guilt” Even A Thing?
Yesterday, I took Thomas to the Kohl’s Children’s Museum in Glenview. I had planned on writing a whole cutesy blog post about our experience but then I realized that nobody really cares about my “review” of the different Children Museum exhibits (even the people that are supporting this adventure). Instead, I decided that it would … Continue reading Children’s Museum/ Anxiety
Thomas saw his first SNOW TODAY! It was for an entire 35 seconds because we had no gloves (shoved some socks on his hands) and then we all piled into the car to go to Home Goods where we bought a whole bunch of stuff we did not need. BUT HE SAW IT & HE … Continue reading First Snow
Happy (are we actually happy about this?) Monday! Is it the weekend yet? I have a really bad habit of wishing my days away. Always counting down to the weekend, the vacation, the next year…
