Why Mom Friends Are So Important

You guys, I have to tell you something. And it’s something that you already know.Being a mom is one of the greatest joys you’ll ever have. And it’s also one of the hardest. Sometimes, I feel like the world is pushing on me to put forth this image of motherhood perfection. Because that’s what you see across a lot of social media, blogs, media and the like. That push makes it so easy to feel like you’re alone in your parenting fears, fails, and hard moments. But you know what I’ve realized? I’m…See More

Baby Life: The Things You Obsess About When You’re a Mom

I always find it hard to start calling a baby by their name. Is that weird? It’s like, for so long they were just “the baby.” And then they become this real person with a real name. And it takes a while to get used to the change.When Ricky was born, it felt so strange to call him Ricky. Probably because that’s what I called my husband. I tried calling him RJ for a while, and Rick hated that. So as I transitioned into calling him “Ricky,” I started to call the hubs “Rick.”Now it’s totally…See More

Newborn Life: 5 Essentials to Make Life Easier

Recovering from this pregnancy has been oddly easier than my last two. Not that I’m that far out from the gate – it’s really only been just over two weeks. Last night, I was trying to figure out exactly what’s made this particular postpartum period so much…less intense. Outside of obvious reasons. And you know what? A lot of it comes down to a good mentality.When you’re positive, things kind of fall into place. I’m also working on a few things right now (I know, two weeks post-baby and I’m…See More

This Should Be Harder, Right?

This Should Be Harder, Right?Do you ever have those days where you just don’t know what you actually did? That’s kind of how I felt yesterday. I honestly don’t know where the hours went.Suddenly, it was 8:30. My toddler was still up, because he wanted to cuddle with mama and baby Christopher while we watched a movie. And seriously, who can say no to that level of cuteness?Once I got him to bed, I knew that I really needed to get some work done. But then, my little one was cuddling his little…See More

If You’re Suffering Through Toddler Sleep Regressions, I’m With You

A few weeks ago, Ricky went through a week or two of sleep regression. Every night, bedtime became a battle. Compared to our usual routine, this was tough. Every night, he cried and screamed until we would let him lay down in our bed. Which then became the goof around in mama and daddy’s bed hour. And then he’d go to bed, but wake up over and over and over again.Patiently, we waited for his sleep to return to normal. And it did. But I have to say, I don’t know how parents with non-sleepers do…See More

Contractions Are So Mystifying.

At 11 last night, I awoke to a giant “thump” in the room next to ours. It was actually nothing out of the ordinary – just my two year old rolling around in his bed and hitting the wall. But as soon as I woke up, I realized I was having a contraction. A decent one! While laying down!To be clear, I’ve been having contractions for a week and a half at this point. But they typically aren’t consistent when I’m laying down. So I was kind of surprised, but figured it was a one-off occurrance. I went…See More
