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

cutest book ever

I'm usually pretty terrible at Christmas shopping, meaning I'm definitely not one of those people who has my shopping completed already. But there is one gift I've purchased for both my kids that I'm pretty psyched about. It's this adorable custom book by Lost My Name, titled The Little Boy/Girl Who Lost His/Her Name. I especially love it because my kids will be the ones who never find anything with their names on it.

You enter the kid's name and gender and pick their character and the book is generated for you.

Your kid encounters different creatures throughout the story who give them each of the letters in their name. Holden meets a hippo, ostrich, lion, dragon, elephant and narwhal (!). Gatsby meets a giant, aardvark, troll, octopus, bear and yeti (!)

Seriously. So cute.
