Think Twice Before Saying These Things To Mothers

Being a mother is one of the most difficult jobs in the world.  Whether you have one child or six little ones, it is demanding, exhausting, rewarding, and life-changing.  Each child has their own personality, and part of your job is discovering theirs while providing what he or she needs.  Motherhood is not for the...

Then and now, same, but different

Hey there! I know I have not been posting regularly (due to that mom life), but if this blog is helping me work through feelings and share my experiences, it has to be a priority. To see where I am, it's interesting to go back through older posts to see where I've been.   I... Continue Reading →

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...

A heart of gratitude

A few nights ago: Sitting quietly, watching The Office (what else), enjoying a beer, and being so thankful. We have gotten into a routine, and I think it helps baby bear.  Each night at 8:30, Lucca gets a bath or showers with me, pajamas, big bottle of breastmilk from Papa, snuggles, and falls asleep on...

5 reminders for mamas

With a 2 month old, a working husband, a puppy, two kitties, yoga classes to teach, and a house to take care of, life tends to become a little hectic.  Days might run together and I can feel as though nothing has been accomplished.  What is important to remember: if the baby is well fed,...

I have been HIGHLY frustrated recently.  Being a new mom is no joke.  I am aware of my insanity, but I cannot seem to let it go... I think the mama bear in me is roaring.   I am tired. Tired of people hovering over MY baby.  Tired of people calling my baby their baby. ... Continue Reading →

From a mother of an infant

On any given day, I will have breastmilk spilled on me.  And a boob out.  Maybe both.  Sometimes I forget... I may also forget I have to pee because I can't set him down.  Or I put him in a wrap, and we go together. There isn't much time to answer texts or have a... Continue Reading →

Welcome to Mamahood!

Our baby is one month old. A lot of people say they cannot remember the time before the baby was born, but I definitely do.  I remember sleeping a lot during my pregnancy, because I thought I was tired then.  Now, I am consumed with everything baby.  And I honestly, truly wouldn't have it any...

33-40 weeks pregnant

First of all, HAPPY DUE DATE TO BABY BEAR!!!!!!!!! Even though I have been blogging about my pregnancy for 4 weeks at a time, these last many weeks will be clumped into one post. Many pregnant women say the second trimester is the most enjoyable, the first being difficult because of morning sickness and the... Continue Reading →

Hearts of Gold

And this is why I'm still a babysitter at 28 years old. 😍 These specific kids I began babysitting in the fall of 2011.  I moved to Nashville for an art internship not knowing but a handful of people.  I babysat one family part-time and was scared away by their intensity.  So I looked for...
