Tough Lessons on Imperfection— Mommy Daze

Recently my oldest son had to learn the hard lesson of imperfection. I say “hard” because I’m a perfectionist, and sadly, he seems to have inherited the same trait. He hates when he can’t finish something -- so do I. He hates when he gets distracted from his work -- so do I. He will stress himself out to get something just right -- so do I.

Germaphobe Parenthood— Mommy Daze

Is anyone else freaking out about all these illnesses our kids are coming down with? I honestly was oblivious to it all before having children. I never even used to get the flu shot. The only can of Lysol I owned was probably the one my mother gave me when I went away to college. But since having my own children, I’ve become a hand-sanitizer-wielding, Clorox-wiping, germaphobe. Cause let’s be real, when your kids get sick, it’s no picnic.

Highs and Lows Following Winter Break — Mommy Daze

rsz post winter break

This year’s Winter Break was truly awesome for our family. I enjoyed having both my boys home from school, and miraculously they played together great. We don’t travel over the holidays, so we just got to enjoy time at home with family. The week between Christmas and New Year’s was so relaxing! The days were long and lazy, spending most of the time in our jammies next to a fire. I actually put together an entire puzzle in one day! I can’t even remember the last time I put together a puzzle. Who does that??

ICE at the Gaylord National — Mommy Daze

rsz ice at gaylord national 02There is an incredibly unique, ‘cool’ event called ICE! that’s taking place during the Gaylord National’s “Christmas on the Potomac” at the National Harbor. My husband and I went a few times before having kids, so we were excited to take our 4 and 6-year old boys to see it this year. My husband’s birthday is in December, so this made for a perfect family birthday outing for him.
