Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

My Nanny (grandmother) died two years ago today. She was a strong, stubborn, funny woman and I believe I got my trucker's mouth from her. One of her favorite sayings was "damn good": "Nanny, how was your dinner?" "Damn good." "Nanny, how are you feeling?" "I'm doing damn good." To honor her and to give Holden an idea of how special her Nanny 1 was, I had her pajamas and some *select* tshirts made into a custom baby blanket from 3stitchcreations on etsy. I'm pretty sure I have the only baby blanket on the planet that includes the word "damn" and an f-bomb. Nanny would be so proud. (Yes, I'll be packing the blanket away once Holden learns to read.)

Nanny actually predicted my pregnancy on her deathbed. I hope she would think I'm a damn good mom.
