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

on doing things one-handed

on doing things one-handed

Clingy baby, one handed mom @ohbotherblog Holden is teething this week and has been absolutely miserable. Fever, lethargy, no appetite, runny nose. She's also been super clingy, wanting to be held all. the. time.

Selfishly, it has made me happy to sit and rock her like I did when she was an infant. It feels nice to have my constantly in-motion toddler want to slow down and lie with her mom.

But it has made doing everyday tasks a tad difficult. Feeding the dog, picking up dog crap, pouring Holdy's milk, making toast, doing my hair, putting on makeup, going to the bathroom... I have mastered the art of doing it all one-handed.

She's so rarely like this, I suppose I should just enjoy it. Wow, it sounds terrible to say that I enjoy her being sick. I have enjoyed getting to be a little lazy this week... man, am I the worst?
