This past week has been a bit tuff around here. As I wrote in my last post I found out that I do have gestational diabetes and I have just been mentally and physically exhausted, to be honest. This lack of energetic surplus has made me feel like I've been a pretty shitty parent. I … Continue reading Dealing With the Big Bad Mommy Guilt
Actually, I was planning on writing a little weekly update with something about Josh being back at uni full-time and how we're trying to get into somekind of a normal daily/weekly routine.

Josh hadn't even come home from work … Continue reading IS IT OKAY IF I’M IN LOVE WITH MY KIDS’ PRESCHOOL TEACHER?
