  • MYA MARIE: 4 YEARS

    Mya just turned 4. FOUR. But more like 4 going on 34. I swear she is more mature than I at times. The other day in the Costco parking lot, I…

  • MYA SPY

    Am I lame for admitting this?: I have a coupon folder. I keep it in my car console and grab ’em as I need them. Another truth is that I seem…

  • CAMERON the EASTERN BLUEBIRD + COOL BIRD STUFF

    Mya had bird camp last week, which means they made some bird crafts, listened to bird calls, read bird books, and sang bird songs… which– for all of you who know…

  • KID DECOR: GRAPHIC ACCENT WALLS

    We’re spring cleaning over here. Mya loves cleaning and organizing (and I’m hoping this continues until… forever.) Her most recent job is going through all her little things in her room…

  • ICE CREAM THANK YOU’S (PLUS FREE PRINTABLES!)

    Confession: Everytime I was in the Home Depot hardware aisle, I had always wanted a reason to buy this Everbilt clear container. I was quite sure there were endless possibilities for its…

  • CLASSIC EGG SALAD

    We have nothing profound here, people. And my cooking friends (and mother!) are going to roll their eyes on this post because it’s just egg salad. But sometimes we (or maybe just…

  • EASTER GIFT IDEAS

    We went to the mall Easter bunny today. Mya thinks that since you sit on the bunny’s lap like Santa, you need to tell him what you want for Easter. And she…

  • DIY KID ABSTRACT PAINTING

    A couple weekends ago, Mya had a 102 degree temperature and a faucet for a nose. (You’re welcome for that visual.) The weather was beautiful– a whopping 60-something degrees in February– and we…

  • LEAH LYNN

    Get ready for picture overload, people! Since I’m having trouble formulating sentences on little sleep, I figured pictures could tell this story better than I could right now. Our little Leah…
