  1. Love this! Seeing this helps me realize I need to stop stressing over the mes. Having a 2.5 yr old and 8 week old is a perfect excuse along with fighting intruders 🙂

  2. Hurray for safety!!! (and on a sidenote – I see you have the ridiculously loud ball popper from hell too, huh? That thing has been a favorite toy for all of my foster kiddos. I am praying it breaks soon.)

  3. That’s right! I often realize that if someone were to intrude, it would be pretty obvious because they’ll likely step on something that makes noise. It’s my alarm system–books with buttons, toys with sirens, and musical instruments 😉

  4. I like it 🙂 Unfortunately our obstacle course trips me up several times before bed 🙂 However invented those boxes with sharp corners and big wire bead mazes attached to the top should be severely punished.

  5. My grandson asked for a booby trap for Christmas. After reading this, I’m just going to tell him that his room IS a booby trap!

  • We didn’t find any banana slugs on this 2 mile loop trail, but it did gift us with a bench. Calling that a win!  #mothernurturemothernature
  • You don’t get paid for this. You do it because you’re a dad, and that’s just what dads do. #happyfathersday2018
  • So grateful to have a partner who picks up what I drop, kisses the booboos I miss, reads the bedtime stories I have to work through, and loves our kids in ways I aspire to. Happy Fathers Day to him and all the dads who are doing this exhausting and exhilarating thing called parenthood 💖
  • It’s estimated 2,000 children (some as young as one) have been taken from their parents at our border in the last 6 weeks alone. MANY of these families are asylum seekers and it is not illegal to seek asylum. They left horrific conditions not because they want to break our laws or lose their children but because they want their children to live. Please join me and my friends from all over the political spectrum to oppose this unnecessary and cruel mandate that is traumatizing children and ripping families apart with no clear plan or guarantee for reunification. This is not a Democrat or Republican issue- it’s a HUMAN issue. I can not stay silent about this. My latest blog post has links and a script you can read to your Rep & Senators when you call them. It’s so easy to DO SOMETHING. Check out my FB Live to watch me call my reps. #familiesbelongtogether
  • Danger Baby keeps earning his nickname, insisting on climbing things and running off and generally loving all things that are dangerous to babies. We are in a different city nearly every week these days, and it’s SO important that we know not only where the nearest ER is, but if it’s actually equipped to take care of babies and small children. Did you know that not all are?? I’ve teamed up with @rbabyfoundation to tell you all about their life saving, free app — Find ER Now — that will tell you where the closest ER is to you, and with the .99 cent upgrade, it will tell you  which ones are equipped to treat your littles. I’m so honored to work with them. PLEASE check out my stories for more info, including a link to download the app. #sponsored #rbabyfoundation #findernow
  • AMIRIGHT??
  • Lately Wallace has been jumping right in to everything we’re doing. He wants to watch movies with us, play ball, wrestle, eat Takis 🤣 and everything else. I forgot how much I love this stage. I think maybe it gets more fun the more kids you have. You really can not tell him he’s not a big kid. He’s not having any of that nonsense. (And yeah, he loves him some spicy Takis.) (This is totally one of those pics that looks like they swapped legs!)
  • Naps are awesome though... right? 😴
