Ace's

Full-time wife, mother, and college student here bragging about my final grades for spring 2018. All A’s except Geology which was technically an A- but whatever Geology was hard as fuck and I rocked that shit…ha! Anyway, this term was really frustrating and taxing emotionally but I like to hold myself to the same standard […]

the deep end

From the moment I discovered I was pregnant, I knew instantly that we were having a boy. Much to my delight, my 16-week ultrasound confirmed that fact. There he was…our baby Jack. A boy was what I had wished for, and my wish came true. When my husband and I tied the knot in 2012, […]

My house has more than one. Dirty clothes: There’s the main dirty clothes hamper in the laundry area. But there’s probably a messy pile of dirty clothes on the bathroom floor as I write this. Even though I scooped them all up once already today. There’s also a dirty clothes hamper in Jacks room and his […]

Jack turned four last weekend, and we celebrated with pizza, cake, ice cream, balloons, presents, and MONSTER JAM! We had a total blast, and as of yesterday, we’re still recovering. My plan, (don’t laugh) now that Jack is four, is to start making him sit for practical homeschool lessons. We’ve been focusing on letters and […]

Happy Easter to those who celebrate, we do, though not for religious reasons. We celebrate to mark the passing of winter and entrance of summer. As I write this it is gently raining outside, the sky is dim and blue. It is an hour until jack’s bedtime and he is watching Disney’s Cars on DVD […]

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 […]

Toki can best be described as a man trapped in a cat’s body, something like Salem the cat on the television series Sabrina the Teenage Witch. Of course, unlike the fictional Salem, Toki did not speak, but we always understood him well enough. Our family will never again know his equal, he was our cat, but most of all […]

No. I don’t think so. Birth control is my friend. Jack is a handful and half while also managing to be a miracle child. We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have him, and very fulfilled by his singular presence. Plus he’s got his mama, his dada, his Grammy, and his auntie all wrapped around his charming little […]

Jack let us sleep until 8 am on Xmas morning. When he did wake up, he proceeded to jump up and down in his crib and holler loudly, as is his usual morning custom. I gave him a cup of whole milk while I changed him, then we walked hand in hand into the front […]

Jack is going everywhere at top speed all the time. He loves to talk and talk and talk, and sometimes we can even understand him. He also enjoys laughing, yelling, fake sneezing, fake coughing, and dancing with the use of just his arms. He enjoys books very much, but lately, he prefers to read the book […]

Behold. Our official holiday family photos for 2015. My beloved husband and mama in law helped take the photos. Jack didn’t really feel like holding still much at all, but we did our best. We also skipped the mall Santa and hit up our public library instead. 🙂
