Kind of Crazy

That Circus Life

by katherine on May 25, 2016

Life is a circus, guys. Yes, of course I love my kiddos. And of course I wouldn’t trade them for the world. And of course I can’t imagine my life without them. Full hands, full heart. Yada, yada, yada. I know they mean well, but when people say “cherish every moment” I can’t help but […]

Things to NOT say/do to a pregnant lady…

by katherine on July 18, 2014

This pregnancy isn’t my first rodeo, yet people still blow my mind {and not in a good way}. I remember when I was pregnant with Reese, our office was celebrating the month’s birthdays with cake and a coworker made a joke about how it looked like I didn’t need any cake. Umexcusemewhat!? Over the course […]

Today is brought to you by the letters TGIM and the number 3. TGIM…as in THANK GOODNESS IT’S MONDAY. Like for reals. This weekend mang. Andy was hard at work on the patio. It’s getting so close! Rylee’s pneumonia relapsed on Thursday so we spent the weekend trying to take it easy. Nope, no fireworks […]


Pregnancy with a side of irritability

by katherine on July 1, 2014

I’ve noticed something throughout this pregnancy that’s markedly different than my previous two. I’m kind of a grumpy bitch. I’m pretty sure others have taken notice as well. For the most part, I do try and keep a sense of humor about things but sometimes that doesn’t always work out. After examining this further, I’ve […]


Oh boy!

by katherine on May 12, 2014

The day Rylee found out we were going to have another baby she was clear she wanted a brother. This whole time I’ve been sure that this will would be another girl. The other night Rylee was trying to convince me to let her skip school and come with us to the ultrasound. We stuck to […]


10 minute update

by katherine on April 29, 2014

It’s not even 9 pm and I’m ready to pass out. The crazy thing is I’m the only one awake right now. The quiet does things to my mind. Like sometimes makes me want to tap out a quick post from my phone. I love the quiet. I crave the quiet. Ry has her first […]


Oh by the way…

by katherine on April 8, 2014

I’m pregnant. Yup. It’s true. And I know you’ve got all sorts of questions (everyone has) so to save on time, and since I’m clearly lacking any sort of creativity with this announcement, I thought I’d lay it all out there in FAQ form. But wait…I thought you said you guys were done after two. […]


I was afraid this would happen…

by katherine on March 21, 2014

I don’t even know where to start with this. Hai. Hello. Clearly it’s been a while. And you know what? I’m not really that sad about it. Maybe that’s a sign? I don’t know. What I do know is that my new job is pretty dang awesome. I really do love it. But I’m literally […]


Do Not Disturb

by katherine on January 22, 2014

Between my last day at Cosmos and my first day at my new job I had 12 days off…well, 11 if you count the one day I went back into Cosmos to help with “orientation” for my replacement. A few things to note about my time off…a) I’ve never taken time off over the holidays. […]
