Mom Confessions

Dear sisters,

After almost a year of being a mother I realized I had to share some of those moments where I am left questioning who am I? Warning, this could be a bit gross to some people.

They’re really trying to prevent him from getting too much water at once. I had to suck on it for like…30 seconds to get a moderate amount of water. Was it worth it? Yeah, I really didn’t want to get up.

One of my favorite things about our trip home over the holidays was how road-tripping makes you feel like a little family bubble, working together and being free from all schedules and routines. We wanted that feeling again, so we decided to drive to Milwaukee, WI for a very quick trip. Continue reading “Milwaukee Family Vacation”
