I am horrified.
Today, while going through the drive through (Matthew was sleeping in the back seat and B suggested we go. When he suggests fast food, I take him up on it before he takes it back!), I actually thanked the kid who brought our food to the car by saying, “Thanks, dude.” Before I was even finished with those two words, my mind was asking, ‘what did you just say?’ I physically hunkered a bit and instantly turned to B and said, “I just said, ‘dude.’ I am horrified.” I was (and still am) so embarrassed. I told B that the kid probably went in and told his buddies that some thirty-something year old woman just called him, “dude.” I then corrected myself and said, “he probably said some forty-something year old woman.” B’s response? “No, forty-year old women don’t wear baseball caps.”
Does that mean I can’t wear my baseball caps in 4 years?
I am vowing to never call anyone, “dude” again… unless it’s Matthew, of course.
Hi, there, I’m Courtney. I never planned to stay home with my kids, but I got sucked into motherhood when my first baby came into our lives after years of infertility and multiple rounds of IVF. His brother followed closely behind, something we didn’t plan on after having such a rough road with achieving parenthood the first time around. My boys are IVF cycle twins, conceived on the same day but born two years and one day apart (they were both transferred on the same day in October, but with two years between them). My boys are the best of friends and my husband is a terrific husband, father, and most importantly… friend. He fully supported my desire to stay home (“I just wanted it to be your idea and not mine, I totally want you to stay home and raise our kids!”) and encourages me in everything I do.
I am a lover of projects, spreadsheets, fitness, healthy cooking and eating, crafts, selling my stuff on FB (HA!), and the outdoors. If I’m active, I’m pretty darn happy!

Haha! I say “man” but in my defense I taught high school for many years. And lived in a, uh, liberal town. And associated with stoners. It’s actually a miracle I don’t say “dude”!
