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

So Gatsby could come any day (seriously, kid, you can come any day). One of the most frequent questions I get is how I think Holden will respond to the new baby. Introducing baby #1 to baby #2 @ohbotherblog

Honestly, I think (and hope) that she'll be great. She has been very interested in my belly throughout the pregnancy and knows that "her baby" is in there.

A normal baby-related conversation goes like this:

M: Where's the baby? H: pats my belly. Baby. M: Is that your brother? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to love him? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to help Mommy? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to change his diaper? H: nods earnestly. Yes. M: Are you going to share your toys? H: deadpan. No.

I'll take it, haha.

She's also been very interested in the baby's gear. I have the bassinet set up in my room for G's arrival. Holden likes to put her stuffed animals in it, turn on the music and rock them.

The other day I peeked in and saw this:

I think we're going to be just fine.

(seriously, any day, kid).
