As you have read, I just completed 3000 miles with my 4 young children in tow. I had planned to spend 23 days and cover 2300 miles, but plans changed when I added in an epic surprise at the end of the trip! We added 2 extra days and a few extra miles that were well worth it! Have you ever thought about driving with your kids somewhere, but don’t know where to start? Or are you too scared to attempt the drive solo, leaving your partner behind to work? Adventure doesn’t wait for anyone. If we sat around waiting for my husband to take off, we would be waiting forever – and take very short trips.Read now
Marijuana, pot, cannabis, weed, or the 50 street names it is known by, is currently in the spotlight. A growing number of states have legalized marijuana, with more to soon follow, for medicinal or recreational purposes, and its use by pregnant women will increase as a result.Read now
I am Single Mom Driving, and I am currently in bed, surrounded by sleeping children. We are in a hotel - our last hotel of this crazy journey. I have loved and appreciated all of the kind words and thoughts sent out to my kids and I over the last 25 days.
I have been horrible at keeping baby books, or even printing pictures over the years, but these adventures -- these are my memories that I want to hold on to forever.
Packing for a road trip with kids is complicated. Take notes and learn from my 2,300 mile roadtrip!Read now
#SingleMomDriving I have lost my mind. Roughly 1,150 miles down the east coast and 1,150 back will add up to who knows how many realistic miles... I can't even think about the "Are We There YET?" comments. Don't you worry, there is a case of wine packed in the trunk.Read now
As I left the pool today – with a cover-up over my bikini, all 4 kids (ages 6 years down to 4 months) in tow, I received a message to write about THIS. At first I didn’t understand. How can anyone possibly shame a new mom? It happened – and probably happens more than we know.Read now
My friends and I span all walks of the education spectrum. While I am homeschooling my tribe through co-ops and at home, some of my nearest and dearest send their little ones to public, private, motessori, and waldorf schools. Some even -gasp- unschool their children. A few of us were chatting about our almost 3 year olds and the outrageous expectations placed on them in our current education system. One friend told us that she was signing her son up this year for a ‘Nature Preschool.’ The rest of us thought she was talking about a fancy new preschool in the city that may have a more elaborate nature-inspired playground. And then she pulled up this fabulous website. And then our jaws dropped.Read now
A normal gender reveal photo on social media makes you say, "AWWWWWWWWWW." But scroll across a celebrity's announcement of his or her baby's gender and time stands still for a moment. We all like to pretend that we actually know these people. Technically, through five-degrees-of-separation, I guess we do! Reality is that it is just plain fun to obsess and feel invested in a celebrity's life. You may even start dreaming of baby names for the happy (or not-so-happy) couple! Heck, I think I will go ahead and name these babies! I mean, I'm basically BFF with most of them - They will love my name ideas!Read now
