"In Darkness a Light Shines on Me"

I am a coffee drinking , out of key singing , 5 foot tall Wild Thing . I am a mother to a daughter , a list maker and a Sailor's wife . This is my little corner of the internet where I write about being a Stay at Home Wife and Mom , a talentless crafter , an aspiring writer , a struggler with mental health , a music lover , and all the things that challenge me .

When your toddler throws a tantrum and you start taking selfies to show them you don’t care about the foot stomping or shrieking and they stop nearly instantly. Here’s the magical picture that ended her diva mode.

😻😹

Feeling so overwhelmed by my house and house pests. I’ve been working since my eyes opened this morning and nothing seems to have changed. But Lennon has been a gem so I’m taking a Mary Poppins break. How hilarious is her face? I already know mine is awful. This is a silly morning. (It’s too early for a beer, right? Right.)

Real life vs Societal expectations

Wow..

Yeah, news flash people, boobs generally only look “perky” while in a bra. A few are super lucky and have naturally perky boobs, most don’t. And this is because, SURPRISE, boobs are intended to feed babies and it’s hard for a baby being cradled in mum’s arm to reach a nipple that’s on the other side of the boob from where its mouth is.Think of a soda fountain machine. The spouts are all pointing down, right? So you can put soda in a cup being held under the spout? If the spout was sticking straight out, it would be really hard to get a soda out of it.Babies need to be able to reach a nipple easily so they can eat. Ergo, nipples are usually lower and angled more downward on a naturally hanging boob, both so it’s easier for a baby to reach and so gravity can do its part in pulling milk toward the nipple.So there you go, outright ANATOMICAL proof that boobs are not there for the benefit of men.

Thank you for that. I never realized. Thanks.

So we took a van down to colorado

Where we ran into the dead

I took you by the hand
Know that even with your doubts, it’s ok
Take into account that it’s not about to change
Who knows, who cares”

The ugliest bath bomb but it smelled like heaven on earth and I need 16 more. Holy crap I wish I could remember the name.

This might be the weirdest picture I’ve ever taken of Doom.

Love of my life. I have a hard time not bragging about her and all the big-kid things she’s doing. As a mom I notice every detail about her existence and I’m proud of every single bit of it.

Enjoying a strong cup of coffee and a pumpkin scented candle this morning.

Managed to get some fun out of the house time in despite the heat ☀️☀️☀️
