You'd think they would have come up with a code word #bagoftequila #enticing #notonmytombradydiet

Four years into the game and I still haven't given in to the especially desperate and repetitive pleas for a vending machine snack πŸ’ͺ #bygameimeanthemotheringgame #notsureitsusuallyusedinthatcontext

It was a long, frustrating week. So here are a few things that made me smile even among all the moments I was ready to write Life a negative Yelp review complete with grainy cellphone photos

"IT IS SUNNY BUT IT IS NOT WARM! IT IS NOT! I WANT TO GO HOME! THE SUN IS BROKEN!" #reasonsmykidiscrying

Had the best lion viewing experience this side of the pond today 🦁

Snow day sanity courtesy of @alex_toys. These little kits are genius. All parents have to do is open the box- perfect for craft-impaired parents like myself. I'm also cheap AF and these kits come in well under $10 and I don't think twice about adding a couple to my Amazon cart here and there πŸ€— #momwin

2016 ended with a bang and dare I say 2017 has just picked up where she left off. But this will be my view for the next 24 hours and I'm going to put it to some serious use to regain some sanity #thankyouhusband #spatime #girltime

Friday after school lunch ritual. This whole 2 year old and 4 year old thing ain't too bad. #nobodyneededtobebreastfed

It happens every year. The weeks leading up to and following her birthday always seem to be some of the hardest to parent her. What you see here is the face of a girl who had swimming lessons taken away and her birthday party cancelled due to today's bad behavior. Also two of the emptiest threats I've delivered to date #notmybestparentingmove

"Where would I be without you" -Ja Rule

I have a very empty feeling today. But whether I like it or not, I turned on the television and for the 45th time in our country's complicated history, watched a peaceful transition of power, where people can celebrate or protest and not be executed for either. People are giving their lives fighting for day like this is many other parts of the world, and today I will remain grateful for the abundance of peace and freedom I live in, even in the worst of times. While I do not hear my own voice in the voice of President Trump, I remind myself that we have the privilege of living under a strong democratic government and have constitutionally protected freedoms that together will never let the voice of one trump the collective voice of our nation. Especially not if we use our voice for things besides memes.
Now it's time to put hope in one another, the American people, which is what I think this is all supposed to be about anyway. Put hope in others, even when you don't fully understand them, and be someone that could inspire hope in us.

I keep thinking about The Gambia and what this transition can look like, and I hold onto my gratitude a little tighter.
