I Want To Be A Dad When I Grow Up

I am blessed with an amazing husband, who is a wonderful, hands-on father to our son. So this isn’t a knock on him but no matter how much help he is, there are just some things that dads get away with that moms can’t (see below). And so, for that reason, I want to be […]

To The Strangers Who Feel It’s Necessary to Point Out the Obvious

Somewhere in recent history it apparently became acceptable to say completely inappropriate things to the mom out in public with kids. I assume this happened around the same time it apparently became acceptable to say stupid things like, “you look like you’re about to pop!” and “are you SURE you’re not having twins?” to pregnant women.

Mom, Am I Fat?

One of my fellow bloggers wrote a post about “Listening Ears” and referenced her 3 year old and how he soaks in everything they say and do (and don’t say and don’t do…). What a great post it was, because it reminded me that it continues, FOREVER. Once they hit school age (or even before […]

MNO: FreeRide Studio {EVENT RECAP}

The Venue It's not possible to accurately capture the amazing mom's night out held at FreeRide Studio. We cycled, we barre'd, and we consumed massive quantities of pie (and water, lots and lots of water). We hesitate to call it our best mom's night out--only because they've all been amazing and thus incomparible in their [...]

Donated Milk

I Used Donated Breast Milk

“Have you considered donor milk? We’ve seen some great results for moms whose milk is taking longer to come in.” Ummmm…are you asking if I want to give my brand new baby someone else’s expressed milk?? No, thank you.   So, here I am. I just gave birth to a perfect baby boy and I’m […]
