I Am...

...hoping that this cough my three little ones have goes away soon. It's not fun to have around.

...loving the little kid Maggie is turning into. I love the way she mimics how I take care of Lucy with her Teddy, how clearly she enunciates "yep!" and "nope!" when I ask her questions, and the games that she plays all by herself.

...thinking about speech therapy for Max, and trying to put my feelings about that idea into words. Also, trying not to feel guilty. Because constantly, about everything, I find a way to feel guilty.

...already working on my Christmas wishlist. This is on there, as well as this and this. Also this, which I still love.

...wishing wishes that Lucy's rolls never go away and she stays a squishy little cuddlebug forever. When that baby girl looks at me with her big eyes and smiles, she just kills me dead. But the yanking off when she's done nursing? And the getting distracted every 30 seconds? Those I could live without.

...unashamedly unsubscribing from certain Facebook friends' news feeds.

...still getting over the sudden cancellation of my Thursday NBC comedies. I had a rough couple of minutes there when I realized all that was coming on was The Voice.

...calculating in my head -- is there any way to opt out of cooking entirely? As in, for the rest of my life, is that an option? And if so, how do I get in on that? I can't express how tired and frustrated I am with feeding Max and Maggie, who always seem to be hungry and never seem to want to eat what I give them.

...spending way too much time on Instagram. How much is too much, you ask? Fifteen minutes five times a day is too much, says I.


  1. Oh my gosh she's the cutest!! Hope everyone feels better! I thought for sure it was comedy night on Thursday too. Oh well.

  2. She is beyond beautiful, Mary. I just can't get over it. And I hope her rolls never go away either. :)

    Also, I don't think there is such a thing as too much instagram? It's such a quick and easy way to get a little break!

    I think you are such a good mama. Just wanted you to know. :)

    1. Thanks, Anna. For everything you said. I haven't been reading your blog longer than a couple of months, but you seem to be one of the classiest, most positive ladies ever.

      And Instagram is kind of amazing to me. There are so many beautiful and inspiring images on there.

  3. Oh Lucy!!!! Those eyes and sweet little rolly arms get me every time.

    I can't believe they cancelled the Thursday night shows...mad about that!

    You watch New Girl, right?

  4. Lucy is so gorgeous! like really, those eyes. i think we all feel that way...about dinner and instagram ;)

  5. love that camera strap! Feedings can be tough, hang in there.
