Three Things I Never Expected My Mom Self To Be…And Yet I Am

Before you have kids, you have this vision of who you’ll be when you actually do have kids. You tell yourself that your kids will be perfect, you’ll always have fresh food on the table and sweets will be off limits. That you’ll never fall into the “frumpy mom” category, will have the smartest and most social kid in the class and your life will basically be one blissful moment over and over for the rest of your life, the end.And then you become a mom. And that moment hits, about two days after…See More

My Baby Is Eleven Months Old - How Time Flies

This morning, my little man woke up at 5:30 on the dot. It was as if he knew it was time for us to get moving – because without that little wake up call there was no WAY I was getting out of bed on time. So I got up and made him breakfast. Started some coffee and let the dog out. Grabbed my phone to check my email and it hit me: my baby is eleven months old today. In a mere month, he’ll be a full YEAR old. My oh my, has time sure flown by...Continue reading at …See More

Still feeling the effects of pregnancy, eleven months later.

When you’re pregnant, and you read all of the “What to Expect” books, you learn a lot of things about how your body is going to change. One of those changes will make absolutely no sense and seem completely unrelated to actually having a child: you learn your eyesight is going to get worse. But don’t worry! The book says that your eyesight will go back to normal after you have your baby. It’s only temporary. Don’t get new glasses. You can live through a few months of blurry vision,…See More

Fall Weather, Here We Come

The past couple of weeks here in Minnesota have been blissfully fall like. To be honest, I thought we were going to sail into fall with actual fall like weather. But mama was wrong. We’ve been hit by a serious heat wave of 90 degree weather, which is projected to last for the rest of the summer. To be honest, I’m not completely disappointed. We go through so much cold in the frigid tundra that you have to live up the heat while you can. But with that being said, there are some things that I…See More

What Happens When You Put A Swim Diaper On Backwards

Friday morning, when little man got up, we went through our normal morning routine. We ate breakfast, made coffee and let the dog out. We fed the dog, watered the flowers and went upstairs to get ready for the day. I walked into his bedroom to change his diaper, thinking that I had a whole box of diapers in the closet. Only…they weren’t there. Mama was clearly out of her mind last night. I went to the diaper bag. Nothing. And then a stroke of genius hit me: I’ll just put him in a swim…See More

Ten Things You Can’t Prepare for as a Parent

When you become a parent, you prepare for the sleepless nights and adorable outfits. Poopy diapers and sweet smiles. Oh, and the baby smell. Thinking about the baby smell got me through my last three weeks of being pregnant without going completely crazy, by the way. But even through all of that preparing, there are several things you could NEVER totally prepare for, especially as a first time parent. Ten things that, well, I’m about to partially prepare you for (or remind you of) right now.…See More

My Baby Now Feeds The Dog. From His Highchair.

So an interesting thing happened the other day. Ricky was sitting in his high chair and suddenly started laughing like he had just seen the funniest thing in the world. I look over, and the dog is scarfing food off of the floor. The he holds out his had – with a single Cheerio in it – for the dog to start nuzzling. The giggling starts, the Cheerio drops and the dog laps it up off the floor. Ohmigosh. My child has learned to feed the dog...Continue reading at …See More

#ShopCartons to Save Trees This Month (aka Get a Tree Planted Just for Tweeting!)

Posted on July 22, 2014 at 10:00pm 0 Comments

ChooseCartons contacted me a couple of weeks ago to share an initiative that they’re running during the month of July to help raise awareness about recycling and food packaging – while planting trees at the same time. Being a household that’s pretty good about recycling (we try our best!) and choosing the eco-friendly option, it seemed like a pretty cool campaign to participate in.

Please note that I was compensated for participating in this campaign. They also planted a tree for me.…

Last night I had a mini breakdown. And what triggered it made me feel so guilty. I saw all of these beautiful pregnant mamas all over my Facebook feed. And that’s when it hit me: I should be 36 weeks pregnant. I should be glowing and happy and getting ready to deliver my baby in just a few short weeks via c-section.

August 19th. That’s when it was scheduled for...Continue reading at The Mommyhood Project
