Potty Training in Three Days… Or Not

Potty Training in Three Days… Or Not

I think it’s safe to say (I really really really hope it’s safe to say) we’re reaching the end of the potty training journey with our first child. I think it’s also safe to say it didn’t really go how I expected it to. I […]

Baby Update

Baby Update

After two months, which today I realized I could just declare a maternity leave (isn’t that convenient), I’m showing back up at Homegrown Volkmans. I knew the last month of pregnancy would be exhausting, and also the first month postpartum. I mean, I’m still tired, but […]

Small Moments of Motherhood

Small Moments of Motherhood

  Motherhood these days has looked like… Building Legos and  drawing excavators. Leaving clean laundry in the drier until we absolutely need those clean underwear. Changing diapers, cleaning up accidents, and remembering to pack a change of clothes for everyone. Being climbed on, walked on, […]

Beginning Plans for a Square Foot Garden

Beginning Plans for a Square Foot Garden

I had planned to take time this morning to get some seeds planted to start indoors since we’ve been having such warm days. Of course the day ended up being on the cooler side, and we even saw a bit of rain, but I wasn’t […]

Wednesday at Home

A new post I share each Wednesday, just some simple glimpses into our day at home and how we’re trying to keep things simple and cozy.  Today starts early and with coffee (the best kind of start). The cooler days seem to be running out, so […]

Why It’s Okay to Be a Needy Mom

Why It’s Okay to Be a Needy Mom

It seems almost every day recently I keep coming across another mom talking about how they’re in a hard season where they feel insufficient and needy and not up to the task of motherhood. I so get it. Some seasons there’s just a little extra weight […]

Gift Ideas: Three Year Old Boys

Gift Ideas: Three Year Old Boys

I had mentioned here that for Dustin’s third birthday, we got him a set of magnet tiles. I researched a bit before we settled on that gift, and since we chose to only get him one gift I wanted to make sure it was a […]

Brother + Sister

Brother + Sister

  A lot of my time is spent returning stolen baby dolls or trains or rebuilding towers that were knocked down without permission. There’s also a lot of my time that I get to delight in this friendship forming between these two. It’s one of […]

Birthday Boy Turns Three

Birthday Boy Turns Three

Our boy turned three last week, and it was a sweet time of anticipation and a simple celebration. Dustin had been looking forward to his birthday for several months, ever since someone else we knew had a birthday. There were a few weeks when he […]
