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

For my birthday last week, I took Holdy and some friends to Dutch Wonderland in Lancaster, PA. As we hit the road, Holdy promised me she'd be "good all day." Pro-tip: You can get discount Dutch Wonderland tickets at Weis Markets discount Dutch Wonderland tickets for $34.00 each.

One of the best parts about Dutch Wonderland is that Holden is tall enough to ride almost every ride, sometimes even without an adult.

Another great park? The dragon mascot's name is Duke!

And there's a great, big giant pretzel! I'm pretty sure I have a photo of me posing with this pretzel when I was Holden's age.

AND I got to enjoy a delicious Dole Whip.
