How Cloth Diapering is going

Years before we found out we were pregnant, I envisioned using cloth diapers for my babies.  Once I became pregnant, I decided to begin with disposable diapers until the baby's BMs got more solid and less frequent - easier and less to clean.  So about 4 months into motherhood, we were full fledge cloth diapering. ...

New Moon Monday crazies

Goodness gracious. Sunday night was the new moon, and apparently I thought it was a good time to adjust Lucca's sleeping routines.  We bed share, and even though it is controversial, it works for us.  We do it as safe as possible, and I do not see it as an issue.  What needs to change...

One of the topics was body positivity versus acceptance and reality.  What one of the women said spoke directly to me.  Here is what I took from the conversation...

Help! I need somebody!

Help!  Not just anybody. It is SO hard for me to ask for help. One of my go-to themes in my personal yoga practice and classes is surrender.  To let go.  It is exactly what I need to work on now and is becoming increasingly more difficult.  Having control makes me feel organized, put together. ...
