Mom vs. the Laundry

Christmas break was awesome as usual: hot chocolate, movies and forts in the living room, and bonding with my kids again. While we all had our heads in the holiday clouds, my laundry was making a mad dash to...
Do you have access to a Netflix account? Then you have definitely watched Tidying Up with Marie Kondo. If only for a little bit, out of curiosity for why your friends have been trying to balance pairs of folded...

I'm the kind of dork who has systems, checklists and protocols for all aspects of my life. My boys' playroom is no exception. Maybe I'm too much of a stickler, but I would argue that my kids play with more gusto...
The biggest success of my day is wiping my kitchen counter. Yes. Spraying my counter with cleaner and taking a towel to it. I'm not a neat freak or a super clean mama. When I wipe my kitchen counter, I've...
