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

In keeping with my (stolen) tradition, I snapped Holdy's birthday clock photo at 7:23pm on her birthday. Take a photo of your child every year at their birth time on their birthday! @ohbotherblog

While it's probably the most stressful minute of my year to try to capture that shot, I'm going to try to do it every birthday. (And yes, I realize that the date format is in European style in that shot. Oh well.)

Here are previous years' clock photos:

Her first birthday clock photo didn't go so hot.

Getting GB's clock photo will prove a bit more difficult, as he was born at 2:31pm (despite his birth certificate saying 2:41pm--trust me, I remember. Oh, I remember.)

Sorry, I'm going to have to embarrass you at school every year, Buddy! All in the name of tradition.
