I feel like it's been forever since I've done a book haul post, but over the last two weeks or so a bunch of local libraries have been having their fall book sales. While I didn't get a lot of stuff for myself (except The Anxiety and Phobia Workbook for $2.00, what what), Bear made… Continue reading Bear’s Book Haul: Fall Book Sales!
Tomorrow is October 1st - what?? Can you believe it? After the shortest summer of my life, I feel like the new school year just got underway, and now you're telling me next week we're issuing progress reports? What is even going on? Anyway, I'm not mad, honestly, because (as we've established) fall is one… Continue reading OctPoWriMo, NaNoWriMo, and Inktober

Let's be real: with a pre-schooler, some of the only guaranteed "me" moments I get, I get in the bathroom. If I sometimes take a little longer than necessary to indulge and get some damn reading time in, sue me. Generally, it's on my phone; it's 2018, and I'm on Facebook, Twitter, Insta, and I've… Continue reading Sense Memories
Tonight, I put our last diaper on my son. He's been using the potty successfully for weeks now; since the end of May, more or less, though I've been hesitant to write about it because, hey, I don't tempt fate - the second I get too cocky about it is the second he turns around… Continue reading So Long Luvs: The Last Diaper
