I took a sick day today because my mom came in town to watch the kids and my body was like, “YAY! This is the BEST time to get SICK. I know you thought you would go on a date tonight, but really, wouldn’t you rather be sick now? Because, you know, we could arrange to be sick next week when she’s not here to make you soup for dinner and get up early with your kids. Your choice.”

And I was all, “Okay. FINE. Romance be damned.”

So instead of sharing a bottle of wine and adult conversation, Scott and I have shared a sore throat and a bag of Halls.

Anyway, this has nothing to do with the following 2 guest Mommy Truths I’m going to post.

I have no ability to segue when sick. So… yeah.

That was courtesy of the HILARIOUS Jen from @TheNextMartha on Twitter (FOLLOW. HER.) and TheMarthaProject.com

This next one, such wise words of wisdom to bestow upon all daughters from an early age, is from a reader.

  1. I find the second one hilarious considering I am always telling my 2 year old, “Stop pulling your shirt up like that or keep your dress down.” This is almost always followed up by me saying, “Rules for life.”

  2. Love the umbrella pictures! I want to have cute umbrellas on the ceiling wherever my future wedding reception’s going to be at. I just don’t know how I can manage that! Thanks for dropping by the blog

  • 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
  • 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? 😴
