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

Peace in the Backseat

Peace in the Backseat

Is it just us, or are all siblings absolutely terrible in the backseat of the car? Whether the ride is two minutes or two hours, my kids’ hands are slapping and their mouths are yapping and I am freaking out in the driver’s seat.

In an act of desperation, I googled “kid backseat separator” literally during a car trip last week (while my husband was driving), and I found this beaut:

Oh, you can bet I added that to the cart immediately and it arrived in true Prime Fashion.

Easy to install AND it matched my car’s interior.

And the best news? The kids hate it!

But so far, it’s kept them quiet and their hands (mostly) to themselves. Win for Mom? Maybe, at least until they figure out how to wriggle the thing free from its seatbelt for a surprise slap.
