Overwhelmed and Underwhelmed

Motherhood is hard. I feel like I write about this a lot, both privately and on the blog. It is the season of life I am in right now, however. I have a baby who still physically needs me, but wants to be independent. A two year old spitfire who is learning boundaries, and a five year old little boy…

Getting Picky Kids to Eat

My five year old son is a super picky eater. He won’t eat eggs, most meats, bananas, melted cheese(?!) or any cooked vegetables. He does get a good mix of nutrients and proteins in his diet in other ways, but not without some struggle. I have heard all of the suggestions before on how to get him to eat. We…

Running with Three Kids

I have recently discovered a true love for running. Three years ago, I would have thought today would never come. Ten years ago, the thought of running more than three laps around the cheer mat made me want to cry. Or actually.. it did make me cry. I don’t think anyone who knew me in high school would think that I…

Overcoming Wedding Stress as a College-Aged Bride

Before I was a mom, I was a wife (although I wasn’t just a wife for very long). Before I was a wife, I was a college student planning her wedding to happen the Saturday after finals during my senior year of college. Smart. Rewind a little bit, and Dan and I got engaged the summer before my junior year of college.…

Sane at Home Mom in 2018

To be completely honest, when I started my blog, it was with hopes of monetizing. I did newspaper in high school, but other than that have never been much of a “writer”. I would search and search Pinterest for ways of bringing in a second income, so we could reach our goal of paying off all of our debts sooner.…

Runaway Pumpkin Recap

  Today at four months postpartum, I ran an 8k. This isn’t a huge distance; just under five miles. I set a goal for myself to do it in under ten-minute miles, and a secondary goal to do it in under an hour. I was ambitious about getting into shape after having Elise and determined to run a manageable race…

The Postpartum Return to Running

I like to think of myself as a “relate-able runner”. You know, someone who has done a couple of half-marathons but it inspires you in a way that’s like “If she can do it, I can do it too!” After I had Sophia, I started training for a half-marathon as a means to get back into shape. It actually got…
