5 Tips For Taking Your Child To The BalletFeb 25th

Parenting is a huge journey of unknowns. It’s a relationship based, in equal parts, off of love and inexperience. Even if you’re a veteran mom, each child you have will bring new ideas and new challenges. I am always pleasantly surprised by the incredible things I get to learn along the way. Ok, maybe “pleasantly […]

The Best Sleep Sack For Your BabyFeb 19th

infant sleep sack

It’s basically taken me three times to finally figure out what is best when it comes to all things baby. With my first baby, everything was new and I just got all click-happy on the registry. Things fell into place, largely because people were generous. Then I had my second baby. Let’s just call the […]

How To Not Lose Friends While DietingFeb 09th

Dieting Mistakes

So, hey. I made it through a month of dieting. January was my Crucible. It was rough. But I had a partner–Matt starved alongside me. We’re still on this annoying journey to lose weight and revolutionize our “lifestyle” but I feel like the biggest hump has been managed. The only problem is, I fear we […]

9 Surprising Facts About Kids And iPadsJan 29th

So…I got an iPad for Christmas. I requested an “e-reader,” yes, said just like that, because I’m a nerd. I wanted an electronic device whereby I could purchase books (at a discounted rate) and ignore my family while diving into fictitious worlds. Reasonable Christmas wish, right? I even told Matt, “Hey, I don’t want an […]

Working on my fitnessJan 20th

Ok, so yesterday I talked about my word for the year… Abundance. That’s a pretty high caliber word, don’t you think? I picked it as a theme for my year because I believe “abundance” to be all-encompassing. I’m 30 years old, and I feel its time to grow up in certain arenas in life. I want […]

My Word For 2015Jan 20th

Well hey! It’s been a year since I’ve posted. Hyuck. hyuck. I love corny New Years jokes. I enjoyed some time away, but in all honesty I missed blogging. No really! I had posts all ready in my head. December was going to be a full month…and then my computer died. Like, black screen of […]

You guys. My birthday is this week. I’ll be 30. Mmm hmm. Not gonna say much more about that except–I want to be happy with this milestone. 30 isn’t old. 30 isn’t 20, but it’s still not old. No. I want to be happy and thankful and full of inspiration for this birthday. And since […]

I’m Thankful For My Middle ChildNov 25th

I love my children to the moon and back. Each and every one. I love them all. But I think there are certain seasons where I “like” one more than another. Is that terribly wrong? Probably. But just as there are seasons of weather (unless you live in SoCal like me), there are seasons with […]

“Negotiations” from a six-year-oldNov 12th

So today is Coco’s sixth birthday. Cue the weeping and “time goes too fast” sentiments. I’m pretty stoked at how this little girl is turning out. I don’t mean to brag, but I’m gonna brag. This girl has a lot going for her. I mean, the fact that she was able to bypass the Elsa […]

The Perfect Latch At All TimesNov 06th

Today I have a post that is sponsored by a really cool company that saved my butt a few times these past few weeks: Munchkin. You guys. I’ve been SO SICK. For like, three weeks. Bronchitis is an evil fiend when you’re a mom of three. I mean, it’s pretty evil to anyone, but I like […]

Why I Love Babyganics + $100 Giveaway!Oct 16th

I guess I’m what you would call a veteran mom. I already had two kids and learned the ropes before this third baby. Right? Meh. While I am definitely more comfortable with some things, like breastfeeding, I am just as much of a newbie when it comes to understanding this new little creature in our home. […]

#gratefulmomOct 09th

Now that I am a mom to three tiny humans, people are always telling me how busy and challenging my life must be.  I’ll admit, it’s pretty nice to be able to pull the overwhelmed-mom card now and then. I can blame my mood swings, messy house, and burnt dinner on this “trying” phase of life. […]

My Red StaplerOct 07th

It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. Fortunately, I have a surplus of spam comments telling me what a superb job I’m doing on this ‘website.’ Sometimes spam is nice. Sometimes, it’s nice to have an unknown, foreign body telling you that everything you’re doing is awesome. Even if you know it’s total crap. I take […]

Just Call Me A CowSep 04th

Its a funny thing. When you’re extremely pregnant all you can think about is what it would be like to feel normal again. The last two months of my pregnancy I felt like a cow. A cow with heartburn. My belly was huge. My boobs were huge–and leaking–and I fought the urge to moo (and/or […]

What I ForgotSep 01st

You know, it might be the most cliche thing in the book for me to write this post. Maybe it will bore you. Guess what? I don’t care. You see, even though this is my THIRD baby, there has been a major learning curve. The gap between Chaucer and Tennyson is almost four years. There […]
