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

walking!

So, as if turning the big 0-1 this weekend wasn't a big enough milestone, Holden decided to bust out a new trick. She's now full-on walking and gaining better balance with each attempt.

I've had a lot of parents warn me that we may think we want our kids to start walking but we really don't. In my mind, walking is preferable with it being summer now and us being outside so much. I think I much rather her walk on grass, dirt, concrete, what have you, than crawl on it/in it. But I guess we'll see. Check back with me in a few weeks and I may be singing a different tune.

In the meantime, we're on the move!
