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

second kid

So these Luvs' "Second Kid" commercials are genius and an excellent representation of my life right now.

Check out all the commercials here.

I don't know if Gatsby is just a really good baby, if I'm that beaten down by motherhood, or if Holdy is just that crazy but he's really been a breeze so far. He gets a little gassy sometimes, but that's pretty much the extent of his distemper at this point. I'm even handling the up-every-hour-and-a-half nights during his current growth spurt pretty well. I'm sure I just jinxed myself horribly with this paragraph.

Also: I got a few packs of Luvs as gifts, so I'm going to give them a shot and see if they can persuade me to give up the Pampers (I love the Pampers Rewards, lol: I use them to buy Shutterfly stuff...)
