Well hello there

I’m so bad at this whole blogging thing.. I admit it. It probably has a lot to do with my lack of confidence in my writing, me feeling like I don’t have anything interesting enough to write about, and the fact that I’d rather play a game of Carcassonne on my phone than write a whole post only a handful of people will read. 😛

I’m not going to give up though. I enjoy posting about Rylan and myself so family and friends can read about our adventures and see adorable pictures of him. So here’s a long overdue update: Continue reading

As promised: Rylan pics

Rylan is growing up so fast! His vocabulary has exploded and one of his new favorite things to do is read which makes me a proud mom! Today we were reading one of his books and he kept insisting that the black whale was a boat. It was a really adorable moment. And there is absolutely no shortage of these moments with him. Anyways, here’s some pics of the little man:

So much news so little time

Warning: This is kind of a long post. Sorrys.

It’s been a crazy last few weeks. And I know I’m going to lose followers from this post and I’ve braced myself for some nasty comments. But I know I’m not the only one that’s been in my situation, so here goes.

I’ve given up veganism to follow a paleo diet.A Simple Paleo Infographic

I spent a week beating myself up for wanting to start eating meat again. I felt guilty, afraid, and most of all stuck. I didn’t feel healthy and I was struggling to provide myself and my son with good balanced nutritional meals. After doing a ton of research I ran into a paleo diet and started reading studies and posts comparing the two. Continue reading

I’m not gone yet…

Well, it’s been a while… Sorry to those who have checked to see I’ve I’ve posted only to see nothing.

A few things have changed and life has been a little crazy lately. I’m living with my parents again, something that wasn’t really my choice, but it’s working out okay. Mine and Rylan’s room could pass for a closet which makes things interesting.

It’s not all about getting views/likes/comments. Right?

I’ve been neglecting my blog lately.. I feel bad about it because I’m not keeping my word to myself. When I started this blog I told myself it was for me and that I wouldn’t get down if I didn’t get many views. Well with the last few posts I haven’t had many views at all and it got me feeling really down and starting to think there is no point for me to blog anymore. But there is: it helps me to express myself and it helps me to improve my writing. I also still have the few people who do check my blog out here and there for updates on how Rylan is doing and cute pics of him..

So I will blog on. 🙂

I will be posting some pics and a video of Rylan pretty soon. He’s getting sooo big!

Thanks for reading. Xx

Welp, june is over and tomorrow begins a new month

At the beginning of this month I posted some goals I wanted to achieve by the end of the month. Sadly as I re-read them I realize I have mostly failed. The death of my brother and some other emotional problems got me off track of my goals. That and I felt a little overwhelmed. If you didn’t read my post at the beginning of the month here’s what my goals were and why I think I didn’t succeed at them. Continue reading

Cool mom vs happy mom

I’ve always thought I wanted to be the cool mom. Maybe it’s because I feel like I need to try to make people like me. Maybe it’s because I think Rylan would want to have a cool mom. But I had a recent experience that made me care much less about being the cool mom.
