There Will Be Bad Days

My 3 year old daughter loves to pick up phrases from people or cartoons, and then repeat these phrases as much as humanly possible. Last week it was “piece of cake”. Anything and everything was a “piece of cake”. This morning we woke up to “Today is a bad day” and my goodness is she […]

Community Over Competition

Yesterday was just one of those days where you laugh because you’re doing everything in your power to just get stuff done, but life has other things in mind. Just in the morning: I poured milk in my coffee mug and almost gave my toddler coffee in her soppy cup (I caught myself right before […]

10 Signs You’re Living That Momlife

Notice how I’m not in the picture? That’s because this is reason #11 for living that momlife. You go on a family vacation & are the only one taking pictures, and only realize at the end of the vacation that it looks like you weren’t even there because you have all of 3 pictures with […]

Beyond Adorable DelphineMarieBows

My daughter loves all things girly and she loves playing in the dirt. She will sometimes insist on wearing a dress, a bow in her hair and one of my bracelets, and I feel like I look away for two seconds and she’s into something: mud, dog dish full of water which she’s splashing in, […]

The Happy Little Things

I have always kept a journal, even when I was really little and would start each entry with “Dear Diary” and proceed to write about whatever boy I had a crush on, or some big secret I just had to jot down. Anyway, I was flipping through an old journal the other day, and landed […]

Let’s Build Each Other Up

I have always heard about the terrible two’s. And now lately I’ve also been hearing about the terrible three’s. And even the fearsome four’s. I had no idea what any of these actually were until my daughter turned two. It’s so funny too, once you see a melt down from your own child, your empathy […]

Jessica Doll For The Win!

You know that “I can’t laugh right now” kind of laugh that happens when you’re in a serious work meeting, or in the middle of church, or (for yours truly) when your teething baby has finally fallen asleep on you? It starts out as a slight chuckle, and the harder you try to keep it […]

George & Georgette Shoes

My husband and I have been thinking about something special that we could get our toddler (almost preschooler, cannot believe she’s turned 3 soon) something special for when she starts her first day of preschool. We were thinking a new shirt but food stains usually get the better of us at meal times, then we […]

Picky Eater? Try Milton!

My daughter is 2 years and 8 months old. She started becoming a picky eater when she turned two. It was like she knew the whole stigma of the “terrible twos” and thought it’d be fun if she just lived up to the hype. We’ve gone through phases where all she wants is fruit and […]

To The Two Old Women Glaring At My Toddler

We decided to go out for lunch today. Not a small feat for us, as we have to pack up like we’re moving to a different state. So we packed everything up and made the trek to our local Red Robin restaurant. We chose this location because it is family friendly and they serve their […]

7 Things I Did Not Anticipate With My Toddler At The Beach

Last year my toddler hated sand. Would not allow a speck of it on her. Literally would scream if we tried setting her onto it. Our beach towel was like a safe fortress for her; kind of like when I was younger and pretended magazines on the floor kept me safe from the lava (floor). […]

Toddler Talk

Yesterday the kiddos and I went to Target for two things, and of course left with an entire cart. Always happens. Anyway, my toddler is doing two new things lately: the first is that she’s a parrot and will randomly repeat phrases back to me and my husband that we’ve told her; and the second […]

About Me
Nicole Benedum has been a stay at home mom for the past 3 years. Before she took on this glorious (and sometimes not so glorious) role of "All Things Motherhood", she was a Human Resources Generalist. Her days were spent dealing with legal compliance, benefits, leave of absences and everything Human Resources related. Now her days are spent breastfeeding, changing diapers, conquering potty training, tantrums and sleepless nights. She has two kiddos; a 2 year old toddler named Emily, and a baby boy named Owen. She met her husband, Sam, in college when they were both on the swim team, and they have been together ever since. She is a huge breastfeeding advocate, gentle/crunchy parent (for the most part) and a former student athlete (water polo and swimming, woot woot!) both in high school and in college. At some point in the future she has dreams of going back to the gym and/or pool. For now she shall continue counting breastfeeding and holding a 35 pound toddler and 15 pound baby as her workouts.
