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

wrapping up a year

wrapping up a year

what a difference a year makes @ohbotherblog We're in the 3-week countdown to Holden's first birthday, and I've come to realize that I'm not just planning a party, I'm essentially wrapping up this entire first year and saying goodbye to my first year of motherhood. She's officially been a "toddler" for more than two months; she'll never be my "baby" again.

So not only do I have to make tissue pompoms and practice that damn rainbow cake again, I have to make sure her baby book is up-to-date; I have to finally complete that Shutterfly photo album that's been saved in my account since Christmas; I have to splice together the hundreds of iPhone videos I've taken throughout this first year. Because if I don't do it now, honestly, when am I ever going to get a chance to do it again? Life moves too quickly.

So... expect a lot of nostalgia as I go through this process the next few weeks. It's exciting, joyful and sad all at the same time. I'm expecting a lot of laughs and a few tears.

Here we go.
