My boys have been on Spring Break for the past week and while we didn’t head out of town on vacation, we have been trying to do some fun things around here. Which meant I wasn’t online as much as usual, unless I had to be for work or to just check in for a few minutes here and there. We needed this break and now this last quarter of the school year will fly and it will be summer before we know it! Here are some reads you may have missed lately, especially if you were on Spring Break, too!
I didn’t have any pain medication during the birth of my oldest(not by choice but because I arrived at the hospital at a 10) and I remember so many people acting like I did something amazing.

Why do we give so much power to the bad and negative? Read Jami’s I Love Bad Words.

While we gave up our minivan last year after many years of driving one, I completely understand why they seem like magic sometimes, even though they’re majorly uncool magic. How I Became a Minivan Mom(aka the end of all things as we know it)
Because it’s April Fool’s Day and I know there are those of us who aren’t really fond of this day, I’m going way back to a guest post my friend Julie did for me 5 years ago: Hating April Fools.
