Since I’ve been working and going to school for over a year now, I have noticed myself feeling judgmental or resentful toward Jeremy as a stay at home dad. Not a lot, but on occasion, like, when the house is a wreck and Jack has done nothing but eat chips and rampage all day.  In […]

Spring semester kicks off next week, which means I’m on the last leg of my winter break. I have been enjoying a slower pace at home and at work, although I am in no way short on chores, projects, and to-do lists. I did not get as much accomplished during my break as I would […]

The days are long, but the time is short. Jack will be 19 months old on Friday. How the hell did that happen!? It’s all going by so fast…that cliche is so true, blink and it’s over. I’m doing my best to soak up as much of Jacks toddler-hood as possible, my husband is too, […]

Jack has been having so much fun playing with his cousin this week! It’s been really great having my nephew around, he’s a big help. We’ve hit some new milestones lately with Mr. Jack too. He’s been practicing his independent/free standing, and walking in his walker around the back patio. Baby boy is making huge […]

His father is a musician, a self-taught guitar player who writes and composes his own original songs, he can even play music by ear. His Great Grandfather was a professional drummer in a band. His Great Grandmother has played the piano […]
