January 2015 Currently

The Currently link-up is such a wonderful way for us to not only connect with other bloggers, but also to reflect and record our own lives. I haven't been able to link up in quite a while, but I do plan to stick with it this year.

Paw Patrol is a show on Nick Jr. My toddler loves it, and I usually choose to listen to it rather than listen to the screaming when she can't watch.

I am so grateful to be able to take 12 weeks off work, but I am outraged at the sad state of family leave in the United States. If you don't know, the US is the only developed country in the world where women are not guaranteed any paid leave for the birth of a child. You can read more in this article published in the Atlantic last summer or in this article published in the Huffington Post a few years ago.

I often don't get the Christmas decorations down until Spring Break, but this year will be different. Right? 
Am I alone in this problem?

No need for details on potty training or sleep deprivation.

I would love to get connected with you! Please leave a comment or get in touch.
Happy New Year!

  1. What a beautiful little one! Congrats. :) I had a baby this past June, and loved my 12 weeks off with him, too. Time flies after having a little one! I hope you all enjoyed her first Christmas.

    I'm a new follower- I found you through Farley's link up. Happy New Year! :)
