From the trenches

Do you ever have days where you think (or cry) to yourself, "I am not cut out for this job!"...? If you're a mom, likely yes. It seems I cry that outloud nearly everyday. 

"This is a hard job, the hardest you'll ever have." ... "But the most rewarding." so they say. 
From the trenches, dinosaur chicken nuggets and pigs in a blanket make a perfectly acceptable dinner. (don't worry, we sliced up a banana for the big guy)

From the trenches, you let them pick out any toy because your mommy guilt is so bad.

From the trenches, photo collages like this are what you LIVE for right now!

From the trenches, you get this in your kid's backpack at the end of a stressful day and somehow all the stress vanishes. Kinda. ;)

From the trenches, you give chocolate milk and cake pops on your mommy/Jakey dates because. Just because.


  1. Hi Kate :)

    I have been reading your blog for awhile and can so relate to most things you post! I almost did a "from the trenches" blog post myself last night. I have 3 & 1 year old sons and we had "one of those days" yesterday! I just wanted to let you know your not alone and I enjoy your posts! :)

    1. Hi Jessica! Thanks so much for your comment. It's good to know that I'm not alone in this! Hopefully today has been better for you. Thanks for following along! :)
