¡Feliz Cinco de Mayo! In celebration, I vote we get started a day early with some cerveza or margaritas. Or, hell, why not both? Yeah, I like both.


Here are the “R’s.”


The QWA was on Tuesday this week, and Quinn had a fabulous time with Auntie Laura.

In this week’s Not-So-Wordy Wednesday, I sought your advice on how to baby-proof the dishwasher.

On Thursday, I posted some of my favorite mommy-inventions.


This week’s super awesome blogger referral is Sherilin from Laughing My Abs Off. The name of the blog pretty much says it all. You’ll laugh until your stomach hurts.

Sherilin’s writing is relatable, witty and clever. She writes about things that we all go through (such as shopping for “standing/sitting pants”), and she puts words to things you thought were only in your head (like why do women let their bras show?).

She has a beautiful tween-age daughter, and her parenting stories are fantastic (like how to handle the “birds and bees” conversation).  In fact, she has several posts with the label “parenting fumble.” I recommend starting with those! But Sherilin is really a fabulous mom, and I bet she doesn’t fumble as much as she thinks she does. Check out her daughter’s blog here. She must be so proud!

So skip your crunches this weekend (you were looking for an excuse anyway) and laugh your abs off instead. You’ll need it after all those cervezas.


The flights are booked! We’re going back to Kauai in September. Whoo hoo! I can’t believe how much Q has grown since our last trip (part 1 and part 2). Kauai might not be as relaxing with a toddler to chase after, but it will definitely be fun!

Tune in next week!

Quinn is getting his first haircut today! I know! I’m kinda sad. But you’ll see the before and after pictures in next week’s QWA. I’ll also tell what I’m doing while I read other blogs. It ain’t pretty.

Have a great weekend, friends!
