  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 28.74 fl oz milk
  • 0.88 oz butter
  • 6.17 oz mature cheddar cheese
  • 4 slices french bread
  • 3.5 oz sesame seeds

A bit quirky, I started blogging after successfully getting my son to eat by talking like a robot. I then transformed into said robot and have been writing about my parenting learnings ever since. Inspired by my infant daughter, imaginative toddler son and supportive husband, I document life as I know it: chaotic, coffee soaked and filled with awesomeness. In my spare time I enjoys fake shopping online, writing love letters to Ryan Gosling, and avoiding folding laundry.
