Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 11

Today started good and ended good, but there was some not-so-good stuff in the middle. Day 11 (March 26) I got up early to get a run in outside before hubby left for work. It was nice to be outside and get some exercise in while it was quiet. Once I was showered and logged … Continue reading

Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 10

Okay, so this week so far has felt stressful. I’ve had a few days (this morning included) where I have wondered why I should bother getting out of bed. This morning I gave in and enjoyed some extra time in bed before getting my butt up and in gear. Tomorrow I will plan on getting … Continue reading

Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 9

Does anyone else feel like they are doing a half-assed job of absolutely everything right now? For example, I can’t get into high-focus tasks at work because my kids keep interrupting me (understandably so). I also can’t spend time coloring or playing with the kids because I need to be working. When it comes to … Continue reading

I took a break from the computer over the weekend to try and give myself a break from screens and social media. Although I was dreading the weekend, it was actually a pretty good one. Days 6 and 7 (March 21 and 22) We went for walks, watched movies, played board games, and just relaxed. … Continue reading

Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 5

Today, my hubby is home from work, which means I have someone to help distract the little monkeys while I work. While eating breakfast, we pretended that we were at a restaurant. Rose named it “Rose’s” and said it was her favorite restaurant. I was the chef (naturally) and she was my chef helper. Yesterday, … Continue reading

Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 4

Today started out well. I ran 4 miles on the treadmill while watching This is Us. Then I got a quiet shower and drank some quiet coffee while the kids were still asleep. Rose got up around 8. I remembered something as I was getting Rose a drink and some cereal. Cat from a year … Continue reading

Diary of a Quarantined Mom: Day 1-3

Like a whole bunch of people all over the world, I am trying to work from home while also trying to keep two small kids occupied without losing my mind. I thought it would be fun to share my experience in the hopes that it might provide a laugh to someone who needs one, or … Continue reading

The Dinner Time Power Struggle

The Dinner Time Power Struggle

Hi, I’m Cat, and I am the parent of one very picky and very opinionated four-year-old girl. As a non-picky eater myself, I find that I get very frustrated with my daughter Rose when she refuses to even consider trying something new that I know is delicious. Last night, it was stuffing. Yes, one of … Continue reading

A whole year old

Last Saturday, my baby boy turned 1. I felt pretty emotional at the thought of him becoming more like a little boy than a baby. He’s my second and last baby, so maybe that’s why I felt so sad. While I love watching him grow, I also feel nostalgic for the little baby who would … Continue reading
