Where to begin...

I hate small talk and "getting to know you games" common on the first day of school, first day of work, first day of anything. It's so awkward, inauthentic and is anyone really listening??

But I'll try to make this painless and brief. So who am I?

My name is Lola, I have been married now for almost three years and we have a wonderful, smart, amazing son named Miles who will be two on 7/23. Was that boring enough for you? Here's some info on us...

When my son was born my husband and I were lucky enough to be home for the first year of his life, we have both recently gone back to work. I went back to work for about 6 months, found another job and am currently waiting to begin my new job. NOT EXCITED about working. But we have to eat unfortuntately.

It seems everyone has a blog, with their awesome cleaning, organizing, and couponing tips; I wish I could say my blog is going to have that level of substance. Nope. I grudgingly decided to start blogging because I came to the realization that as parents we feel a lot of pressure to be perfect ALL THE TIME. I try my best, but I'm human. Really human. For example the other day Miles had Cheetos for dinner. Yes, he was eating the Cheetos I thought to myself, "Wow, parent of the year right here"....and thus the blog is born.

If  I have any readers (pretty please follow my blog) please share you thoughts and awesome parenting moments...I know I'm not the only Parent of the Year.
