It’s me.

I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet…

Now that that song is most likely stuck in your head, I thought I would pop in and say hello. It’s been over a year since I last posted so I’m not sure if anyone will actually see this, but I thought I would say hi nonetheless.

So, yeah… it’s been awhile, though it doesn’t feel like it’s been that long to me. It’s like I blinked and I suddenly have a toddler. It’s nuts. Being a mom is nuts. The fact that I’M a mom is nuts. But it’s also awesome.

Becoming a mother did not come naturally to me, and I still feel a little guilty about that fact, but Ryder is just the best thing Kevin and I have ever done. He’s crazy and wild and – not going to lie – can be so annoying sometimes… but he’s also the sweetest most cuddly funny little dude. He loves me and Kevin more than anyone, and even when he is driving me insane (which is more often than I would like), I  love being his mama.

He brings so much joy to my life, and I feel so incredibly lucky that he’s mine.


I mean, come on he’s so cute I want to eat his face!


15 months in, and life is just really good again. The beginning was hard. So much harder than I could have ever imagined. There was nothing that could have prepared me for how hard it would be. I can confidently say that the newborn stage is just not for me. But while as shitty as it was, I’m grateful for it in a strange way because having that sharp contrast makes me appreciate how much better life is now with him in it.

I don’t know what’s in store for this blog. I’m not going to say this is goodbye, because I might pop in from time to time, but I don’t foresee myself updating it with any sort of regularity ever again.

However, if you have any interest in keeping up with me and seeing what I’m up to, I am a super obnoxious snapchatter. I try my best to not be the annoying mom that just posts loads and loads of baby pics on facebook and instagram, but I don’t apply that rule to snapchat. I post a ton of of baby photos and videos that capture how great having a kid is.

You know, videos like this:

And this:

Ah, parenthood.

Anyway, if you’re reading this, I hope you’re doing well, whoever you are.

Until next time!

Surprisingly I’m still following you. I found that I could relate to the way you think,feel,post…I wrote you a n email a long time ago too but never got a response. What a coincidence that we both have a 15 month old toddler. Enjoy the moments

Being a parent: the hardest best thing you will ever do, and are guaranteed to f*ck up on so many levels, all the while doing it just right! And remember how you used to internally (or literally) roll your eyes at your peers who had children?–and now you know they were right to feel so over the moon for their progeny! So trust me – please – when I tell you that should you get the amazing gift of being a grandparent someday so VERY FAR in the future (HA), your heart will break and swell and leap and burst for those grandbabies like you can not imagine, and in ways so different from being the parent. Raising a child is HARD, and a grandbaby is an amazing reward I wish for you someday. Not to rush you, just pointing out there are more good things to hope for! xo
