Hammer Time!

Hammer Time!

I wasn’t sure I wanted a second kid. Today, that second kid turns 6.

I definitely didn’t want a large age gap between my kids. He was born more than 5 years after my first.

I also wanted a girl. My new 6-year-old is boy #2.

Welp. Plans are stupid. Expectations are stupider. (Yes I know it’s not a word, get off me!)

Noise-Cancel Culture

Disclaimer: I partnered with Best Buy and Sony to promote their noise-canceling headphones, but all opinions and whining about my kids are my own.

I spend a lot of time wearing headphones.

On my commute to work, when I work at my desk, when I’m writing, when I’m mowing the lawn, when I’m emptying the dishwasher, I even used to go to sleep with my headphones in.Music is life. Podcasts are pretty good too. (Check out the latest episode of mine!)

Basically, I prefer to listen to things besides the noise of the street, or the strangers standing next to me on the subway, or the people in my home asking me for snacks and shows and toys.

That’s why I love my new noise-cancelling headphones.
