6 Tips for Feeding Toddlers Who Don’t Like Vegetables

There are few challenges in motherhood quite like feeding a toddler. Moving targets that, once you get them buckled in for meal time, spend more time playing with food than eating it. And what was a favorite meal last week is not allowed to touch their plate this week. Don’t even get me started on getting a toddler to eat their vegetables.Somewhere between eating choo choo train spoonfuls of mashed avocados and puréed green beans and memorizing the alphabet, kids learn that chocolate cookies…See More

The Third Trimester is Testing Me

Some days, I feel like the third trimester is a test of whether you’re ready to be a mom to a newborn. First, you stop sleeping. As in, you find that you can no longer sleep for longer than two to three hour intervals at a time without waking up. This is the first test, my friends: your body is preparing you for life with a baby outside the womb.Then, your child begins to live in the same vicinity of your lungs. This means it takes approximately 4.2 minutes to regain your breath after walking…See More

Smooth the Transition from One to Two Babies

“Mama, tha baby’s hidin in your belly button!”Seriously, you guys. Is there anything better than the words that come out of a toddler’s mouth? It’s like, my favorite thing in the world.Tonight I was sitting on the couch doing puzzles with the little man when I could suddenlysee the little one moving around in my tummy. Ricky thought it was the most amazing thing in the world.For me, seeing the baby move – and not just feeling it – is like this confirmation that there really is a baby in there,…See More

Schedules, Processes, Timelines. It’s Time to Simplify.

My life is based on a schedule. Most days, everything I do feels like it has to happen at a very specific time in order for me to get everything done. That’s what happens when life gets busy – you figure out a way to adapt so that you can actually check everything off of your list. Because, mom life, right?Of course, that schedule ebbs and flows every week. In the morning, I list out everything I need to accomplish today – even on the weekends. Then I strategize in my head how to get it done. I…See More

29 Weeks Pregnant: Goodbye Breathing Room

It’s that pregnancy moment of uncomfortable.You know the one – where you’re sitting around and suddenly feel a random body part jammed up into your ribcage, rendering you barely able to breathe. And then you sit there in a haze of total uncomfy-ness, trying to make heads or tails of what you can focus on when you really can’t focus on anything, because there is a [insert body part] jammed into your lungs.And then you read online: move around! It encourages the baby to move!So you oblige. And…See More

Making Your Kids More Appreciative

Only as adults do people really discover that one of the keys to happiness is gratitude. Being thankful for what we have can be very difficult for kids who believe they can always depend on their parents for whatever they want.There are a lot of values that parents should instill to their kids, and gratitude should be one of them. Grateful children are not only more fun to be around but also grow up to be strong adults who care about the world around them. In a recent study, it was also…See More

Getting Past the Mom Guilt

A few months ago, at the end of the first trimester, I walked into my OB’s office with zero expectations. I didn’t know whether to laugh with joy that we had made it through the first three months of pregnancy, to cry that I still had six to go or to completely break down over the mental anguish that lies between grief and happiness. And of course, I had to step on the scale.I refused to look at the number. Knowing myself – and that I hadn’t lost the baby weight from after losing Addison, I…See More

28 Weeks Pregnant: Getting Organized for Baby

The second that the third trimester hits, you really start to feel like a house.My darling husband told me that I’ve really started to exhibit the pregnant lady waddle. Especially when I try to move quickly. He’s a gem you guys.Since my short term memory has been compromised (thank you third pregnancy side effects) and I’m not so good at coming up with funny retorts before I’ve had my coffee, I just stood there and gave him the stank eye.But it’s true, I’m pretty sure the waddle has hit. I’m…See More

5 Lessons I Learned in My Year as a 30 Year Old

On Monday, my year as a simple 30 year old ended. I’m officially “into” my thirties. I remember back when I was finally “in my twenties” and how grown up it sounded. Thirty sounded like it was SO FAR AWAY. And like a big, scary number I never wanted to hit. After all, 30 meant I was really grown up and better have my crap together.In my mid-twenties, I decided that I was just going to live and have fun and when I finally did turn 30, I’d buckle down and probably find that life was magically…See More
