Here are some random thoughts from Cristin Vollrath |Designer | Owner | Yarn Wizard over at

Kozy Komforts


  • My day starts at 5:30am. Coffee is essential. Also, I am not a morning person. At all.

  • Raising three tiny humans is not without challenges. Most days I feel like a zookeeper and lately I can not leave the room for more than 2 minutes without a brawl happening. Seriously though, what is with the flicking each other all the time? Anyone who says girls are easier to raise than boys doesn't have girls.

  • Pre-teen hormones might be the death of me.

  • My kids found my emergency chocolate bar hidden in the freezer tonight and I lied and said it was expired so they wouldn't eat it. Truth? It's mine and I'm definitely eating it as soon as they are in bed.

  • I secretly worry about making healthy meals so I caved in to the hype and bought a pressure cooker

  • to save time. Why the hell didn't I do this sooner?! It now sits full time on my counter and my goal is to cook everything I can in it.

  • I get asked all the time "how do you do it all". I still haven't figured that out if we are being perfectly honest.

  • I've let my kids build blanket forts out of EVERY piece of furniture in the house because it keeps them busy and I can respond to emails.

  • I use to worry about being that Mom who had her sh*t together because social media expects us to be on point all the time. With so many eyes on 24/7 it was suffocating. Dry shampooing your hair 4 days in a row, not wearing makeup or heaven forbid, feeding your kid a happy meal instead of organic locally grown food is PERFECTLY acceptable and not the end of the world. At the end of the day we are all just doing the best we can with what we have. The only opinion that really matters is our own and how happy our kids are.

Now if you'll excuse me there's a chocolate bar calling my name.
