I am having a hard time wrapping my brain around first grade. I mean, FIRST GRADE. First grade is the real deal. Wito is growing up so fast, yet still needs me so much, and finding that balance between standing back and being there for him (letting him order his own food, yet still wiping […]
Wito started first grade today. Well, he started his true first day of 1st grade in July, but with our impending move, we changed school districts, and now he’s starting his SECOND first day of 1st grade today at the new school. Crikey. As you can imagine, mama didn’t get much sleep last night. That’s […]
Over the past few years, we’ve rarely strayed from Wito’s signature hairstyle. You’ve seen it before…the swoopy, longer bangs in the front…short, but not too short in the back… It just suits him. Not that the haircut doesn’t have its drawbacks, though. It can get a little hot and sweaty all up in there, and […]
I recently had a full-on Mr. Mom moment at Wito’s school. The honking, the traffic flow volunteer flashing me the “roll down your window while I admonish your blatant disregard for the drop-off procedure” sign (if you are wondering- it’s moving the right arm in a cranking motion with a side of evil eye), the […]
This one turns six this weekend. HUH WHUT? This one would like to remind you that she’s two. She’s growing like a weed. I got some new kicks. The brighter, the faster, right? Early summer morning ritual. Can’t get enough watermelon. The House That Got Away = Lots of Thinkin’ and Not So Much Sleepin’ […]
I’m talking with Margaret from The Lingerie Goddess about bras and saggy post-breastfeeding boobs and panty lines and girdles (uh, I mean “shapewear”) and all that good stuff in this week’s episode of the SJ Show. I also managed to get fitted for a bra on camera because that’s always a good time. I was […]
Wita is two years old today! I promise I say that with great enthusiasm! I’m not a sentimental mess! I’M NOT. I’m telling you…this little gal is just the bee’s knees. The perfect mix of tomboy and girly girl, you can always count on Wita to be running at full speed with scraped elbows and […]
We had a goooood weekend, which is exactly what this girl needed. Reading books at Barnes and Noble is a good way to spend a Friday afternoon. Looking at this sweet face always makes me feel good. Wearing jaunty mustaches around the house is quite a good time. Date night is VERY good. Gin + […]
I need to go back right now. Thank you to the Westin Maui for sending us to paradise. I’ll be posting about our trip at Babble starting this week.

First of all, would you just look at this face? How much do you want to squeeze and kiss and cuddle and love on that toddler?! (What? You don’t want to squeeze and kiss and cuddle and love some random blogger’s toddler? YOU’RE AS COLD AS ICE, I SAY!!) Wita, why are you growing up […]
1. I spent most of yesterday being filmed for a documentary featuring stylish moms. (What the WHAT? How super cool/exciting/insane is that?? I can’t wait to see!) I just had to share this photo because I can’t stop laughing. First off, Wito is the little speck in the distance, about to be taken out to […]
Big weekend at the Whoorl household. D and I celebrated our 7-year anniversary on Saturday, and I turned 37 on Sunday. (Love all the sevens, by the way. Let’s hope that means a lucky year lies ahead!) Southern California had a rainy weekend, which truthfully could not have made me happier. Chilly, fall weather? Yes, […]
Happy 16 months, Wita! You are such a treat, if I do say so myself.
