Family

the most interesting thing about me

When I meet new people or catch up with old friends, I do a rundown of my girls' lives. New milestones, what they're currently loving, and maybe a funny anecdote from the week. And then I draw a blank. Sometimes I'll talk about my husband and his career, but after that I'm pretty much out [...]

3littlepigs

Thanks to The Rose Theater for sponsoring this post - we loved our afternoon at the show! Think you know the story of the Three Little Pigs? Think again. Yesterday afternoon the girls and I enjoyed a special preview performance of The True Story of the Three Little Pigs at The Rose Theater. My little [...]

Coloring and Conversations

Hi mamas! I can't believe this is my 1st post of 2017 - it's almost February for goodness sakes! As for what I've been up to this past month, it's been a lot of the same old mama stuff. Balancing the status of the house somewhere between "tidy" and "tornado"... keeping Everly's insatiable appetite under [...]

Paying it Forward with Stonyfield

As I learned during my farm tour trip out to Vermont this summer, Stonyfield is a company that has community at the heart of its mission. And this holiday season they empowered those of us in their YoGetters program to pay it forward in our own communities. Armed with a Visa gift card, we were challenged to [...]

My Mom Always…

My Mom Always...

As my girls get older, I find myself thinking about my own parents more and more. My childhood, our family routines, how they maintained order, and how they showed their love. There are certain things about each of my parents that are seared into my memory: My mom always cuddled me for as long as I [...]

Happy Saturday mamas! The girls and I kicked off our weekend with a trip to The Rose Theater yesterday afternoon to see a preview performance of Mouse on the Move, a brand new interactive show just for preschoolers! And as you'll see below, Everly refused to take off her hat all day yesterday, but I [...]

hurry-up

You never know where motherhood is going to take you. This week I found myself sitting on the floor of the Target bathroom desperately trying to convince Eleanor to put on a pair of new leggings while simultaneously stopping Everly from stripping herself naked. There were socks and shoes strewn all across the floor, half of [...]

4 Ways to Reset Your Toddler's Day

Let's be real, not every day goes as planned with a toddler. Ok, let's be really real, MOST days don't go as planned with a toddler. And while three year olds can be some of the sweetest creatures on the planet, some days are just plain bad. Occasionally I find Eleanor and I getting caught in [...]

Shrek the Musical at The Rose Theater Omaha

You guys, sometimes being a mom is really fun! I mean, there are a lot of great parts, but getting to surprise your kids has to be right up there in the top motherhood moments! Yesterday I loaded up the girls in the car and headed downtown to The Rose Theater for a surprise preview [...]

Everly at 18 Months

rocking-chair

With Eleanor, I kept meticulous notes about all of her milestones. Lists with the dates she first said different words, her height and weight percentiles at each well check, and when she mastered new skills. With Everly, I've taken a different approach. Sure, you could blame it on "second child syndrome," but I think I also [...]

Goodnight Moon at The Rose Theater Omaha

Yesterday was a really fun day - I got to take BOTH of my girls to a performance at The Rose. We were kindly invited to a sneak peek of Goodnight Moon, and I couldn't pass up the opportunity to see the classic tale on stage with my little ladies :) Everly is still rather young to [...]
