Making Some “Me” Time a.k.a. Girl Time with Veronica

Posted by: on Jun 27, 2014 | No Comments
As I mentioned in my last post, things have been a little crazy in the Kujo household recently (to put it mildly). We're constantly running and doing and making and fixing and and and and and... I do try to find some "me" time every day if I can- even if it's just for 15 minutes. [Note: this used to be my shower time, but lately I've been bringing Little Miss in there with me to save time and energy on bathing her separately.] With my softball season on hold due to pregnancy, I've made sure to Read more [...]

I'm sure it has not gone unnoticed that it's been pretty quiet 'round here lately. Let me assure you, that it has not gone unnoticed by me either! Suffice it to say: this second pregnancy is kicking my butt more than expected (and much differently than I would have anticipated). Working full-time takes a lot out of anybody. Working full-time with a toddler and a partner who is also employed full-time is even harder. Throw pregnancy in the mix, and I am absolutely shot. [Not to mention the Read more [...]

A few weeks back, I wrote about how we were introducing my daughter to some old classic kids' TV. One of the shows I was most excited about sharing with her was The Magic School Bus! Well, it turns out that I was ahead of some pretty major news... Netflix and Scholastic Media announced yesterday that they will be relaunching The Magic School Bus as an all-new computer generated animation series, The Magic School Bus 360°!!! Now, I didn't realize that The Magic School Bus has the distinction Read more [...]

Toddler-Bump Love

Posted by: on Jun 6, 2014 | No Comments
Seven little words have changed my life recently: "I wanna make nice to the baby". There are few things in this world that have made my heart melt the way it does when my daughter reaches for my growing baby bump and speaks these words out loud. While so far this second pregnancy has been more achey, and shall we say "symptomatic", than my first, the most wonderful and wonder-filled parts have been those moments when my daughter lovingly cuddles up with her future sibling, completely unprompted.
