Far too often we see photos and tv shows with perfect kitchens and living rooms and bedrooms. I've come to realize as a mother (at least for me personally) that that shit just isn't reality. I've come to terms with the fact that my house will be wrecked for much longer than I want it… Continue reading My house is a wreck, but that’s okay
These days moms are so stuck in their own heads thinking that everyone is judging their choices as a parent. Mommy groups have become places of gossip and judgment by hundreds of others doing the same fucking thing we are. The ”It takes a village” approach has been lost and it is incredibly detrimental to… Continue reading It Takes a Village…No seriously it does.
Self-care. We’re taught from a young age that we need to brush our teeth and hair, shower regularly, change our clothes every day...As an adult, it’s expected that you just do these things, that you don’t struggle with them. A mother should obviously know to take care of herself seeing as she’s teaching small people… Continue reading Take care of yoself mama!
Morning good folks! Coffee here (Joanna) and I'm up and facing the day. Already. Thank you, kids, (not really thank you). Waiting for my coffee to finish brewing and this baby to finish nursing.

Every mom dreams of having an easy meal to just pull out and hand to the kids. Trust me, I know this because its literally the story of my fucking life. One of my personal faves is Egg Salad. It's beyond easy, can be made in a big enough batches that you can use it… Continue reading Easy Egg Salad
I'm lucky enough to have kids that will usually eat all of their fruits and veggies (thank the gods) but sometimes its fun to change up the way we get them. These smoothies are something we have just about every week. Every once in a while i'll be a sneaky mom and put in some… Continue reading Berry Banana Smoothies (Batch Recipe)
Pancakes (and waffles as you have seen in previous posts) are a big hit in my house. I love them because I can make a giant batch of them one time and then toss those babies in the freezer and eat them whenever the kids ask for them. Its super convenient to pop one or… Continue reading Chocolate Chip Banana Pancakes
I've suffered from chronic migraines since I was about 15 years old so I've built up some pretty good ways to cope with them and still (attempt to) function for the most part. When I became a parent I had to come up with a whole new set of things to help me survive my migraine attacks.
