When Reece picked "hearts" for his birthday party theme I was unsure to make it happen without looking like a Valentine party. With some creative thinking, it turned out really cute. You can't say no to a Love, Kindness, and Heart birthday party. Can't believe I have a 5 year old!
There used to be a time when I was sad about the end of my solo time with my first baby. Now I feel bad I don't have more solo bonding time with my youngest. Is it just me, or is motherhood a constant seesaw?

When I started getting migraines my fitness took a major back seat. I wanted to reclaim my workouts. Group classes can be so loud which is can trigger a headache, but I've found ways to make it work so I can get my workout on!
Have you ever had to take care of your child or children with a cold? What about when you have the flu? Or a headache? Or maybe a migraine? They all suck.
