Now that the weather is not quite as oppressive, all I want to do is get out. My kids don't know that's what they want, but I can tell by the way they roll around the house like puppies nipping and yapping at each other that outside is what they need. What their little bodies are screaming for. They bitch about my insistence that we all get out and enjoy the beauty, but once they're out adventuring and scrambling over logs and fording small streams, they cease to be obnoxious puppies and they become explorers. I wrote some tips for helping your kiddos enjoy hiking. I also listed my girls' favorite hikes in the area.
I'm Molly. I'm all in for parenting. I'm all in for good food. All in for big and small outdoor adventures. And really only partly in for homemaking. I want a Martha Stewart home and meal, but the truth is, we mamas just can't do it all. Not really. This shit is tricky!
This is a collection of musings and missives about parenting like you mean it. I mean really mean it. About how you can pull off a really mostly decent meal, keep your house kinda clean, do some of your laundry, and also even remember to usually feed your pets. But mostly about how being a mama is hard and we can totally rock it, but maybe that dream of perfection has got to give a little.
