January

January was when we added basketball onto soccer. My oldest two played- my youngest is thrilled that he gets to play this year, instead of just hanging out in the stands.

Blog posts:

  • My Husband is an Asshole one of my most popular posts, though I think women who find it from googling are probably disappointed in my take on the subject.
  • A Goodbye is the reason my first grader has me almost convinced that Santa should bring him a kitten for Christmas this year.

February

My youngest niece made her appearance at the tail end of 2013. My heart explodes at the cuteness of her first Valentine's Day.

Blog Posts:

  • A Blogger Goes to Yoga Once you’re a blogger, it’s hard to turn off the “this would be a great blog post” part of your brain.
  • I’m Not Apologizing for Being on My Phone Despite all the posts out there about why we need to disconnect and the ones criticizing moms for ignoring their kids to be on their phones, I refuse to apologize for having my phone with me.

March

  7. Very fun post and review back!  Reading your hardest post for 2013 was pretty good.  I dread having my kids or my son stuck in a situation getting pushed around in a game of any kind.  Your Pour my heart out posts are always great.  I always have my phone… referring to your reasons its okay…. b/c without it, I wouldn’t have the pictures of our daily life to reflect on…

  13. Congrats on 10 years, we will hit that milestone next year! And as the person who tabulates those absences and tardies for a living, I get it. I wish there was some leniency, so I wouldn’t feel like the bad guy all the time!

  14. This is such a fun idea, and a great way to look at the year as a whole! I’ve loved your posts this year (as always) and these are definitely some of the best.
