“Raising a child is like taking care of someone who’s on way too many shrooms, while you yourself are on a moderate amount of shrooms. I am not confident in my decisions, but I know you should not be eating a mousepad.”
Ron Funches (via lazybookreviews)
I CAN’T EMPHASISE ENOUGH HOW ACCURATE THIS IS.
This is like my favorite parenting quote out there. Seriously.
Yup. (via iamtallandawesome)
My dog ate a dish towel!!!
The vet found it lying near him this morning! I can’t believe this dog. I really thought this was the end! Happy and annoyed at the same time 😅
Mostly relieved it’s all over and he’s ok
I’ve been reading some of these posts written by working moms lately and I come away with this sense of failure that I couldn’t make it work. It is incredibly hard getting everything and everyone ready in the mornings without forgetting something. And then rushing home and shoving in as much together time as possible for those few hours after work and before bedtime. And then the weekend finally comes and you get two days to catch up on housework and get some more family fun time. Meanwhile you’re exhausted ALL the time because you haven’t slept for more than 5 (lets be real 3) hours straight for a year.
There were two other moms with young kids at work that we’re not only able to do this but then had crazy amount of energy and did their jobs well. I could barely move without mainlining coffee all morning.
I know I wasn’t fired but I’m sure I was included in the small group of displaced individuals for a reason. I am glad with the way everything worked out. I couldn’t be happier being able to stay at home with Gray. There’s just this sense of inadequacy. Oh well, I guess that’s part of growing up.

Seizure storm !
My vet said Titus had a seizure storm, aka 23 seizures in 24 hours. And then one more at 3 am today just for kicks. The medicine seems to be kicking in and I am fully realizing how awesome it is to have a brother in law that is a vet. He answered a LOT of my after-hour questions.
It’s been 6 hours since that last seizure. He’s eating and drinking and walking a little bit. Mostly sleeping though. I am so grateful to have this guy for a little longer in my life.
Titus has had 14 seizures in the past 12 hours. Quite possibly the hardest night of my life. Vet appt is at noon. He is getting old and it’s so scary/sad.
He’s SO good with Grayson. Hope the vet has something helpful
So yesterday was awesome
I had an interview for a part-time teaching job. The campus was beautiful and the people were nice, even the students were cool. My interview was at 3:30. I received an email at 4:35 offering me the job!! They liked me! It’s great; I start in the fall so I get to spend the whole summer with Gray.
Days like yesterday totally make up for getting laid off from your shit job
