  • That moment when you were struggling to read some blurry papers and suddenly remembered why you were prescribed those glasses you hardly ever wear 😂😂 it's just one of those things I'm not used to doing but I am pretty happy my kids have kept those Lego castles together in the background lol #momlife #momof3 #summercraziness #momblogger #momblog #gettingold #lovinglife #crazymomlife #mombrain
  • Watching Grateful Dead docu series on @amazonprime with my little weirdos hoping to pass on the hippie lifestyle (or at least appreciate the music 😜) to my munchkins and embrace the weirdness and live out loud - #nontraditional  #freethinkers  #expressyourself  #livewild #livefree #hippiemom #hippiegrandparents #momlife #momblogger #momof3 #momblog #summerkids #summercraziness
  • This is my life right now .... I feel so scattered and nothing is being done 100% - but I'm not stressed ... my 12yr old is recovering well from his illness, my girls are behaving (sorta) well this week and I'm about to runaway with the hubby for 2 days to see his favorite soccer team play in Houston! The kids will be in good hands and I think 40hrs with out them will help us finish out the last half of summer break! I'm just going to breathe and get things done whenever I can! #summer2017 #summerkids #summercraziness #momlife #momblog #momblogger #momof3
  • As a special needs mom this is our reality sometimes... my 12yr old is sick but he can't tell me what's wrong... I'm seeing seizures but now wondering is the seizures causing sickness or vice versa ... will we see the hospital tonight or will we get some rest either way I hate this for my boy ... hoping for a healthier tomorrow #truelife #momlife #specialneeds #angelmansyndrome #specialneedsmom #specialneedskids #seizuressuck
  • As I say 'only 3 books each this week!' They pile up and up... I won't stop them because I love books as much as they do! And now I need a shopping cart to get ours to the car! #summerkids #summertime #summer2017 #summerreading #librarytime #momlife #momof3 #momblog #mommyhood #mommoments #bookstagram #booklovers #momlife #momblogger #mommyblogger
