This past week has been an emotional roller coaster, for a lot of reasons. When my life is emotional, I like to do a lot of cardio. I don’t know why – it just works out that way.
When I feel like doing more of a particular exercise – circuits vs. lifting vs. cardio – I go with it. I figure that if my body feels like it’s not getting enough of a…Continue

I went on a date with my son. For five hours we hung out together, I introduced him to the Lego store, we ate ice cream, he went on a carousel ride and we bought some books. He told me that he wanted to go on another date with me soon because he was "happiest with Mommy."
I love spending time with him - he…

Mother's day comes with many happy moments, but the most heart-warming part of the holidays always seems to be the opening of the presents. Oh well, preparation and receiving presents has their good sides, too, but let's face it, all the thrill around the whole arrangement is not to the taste of everyone. In fact, I am one of the people who actually likes being involved in planning, but there is nothing I enjoy more than a warm cup of milk & cocoa near the fireplace with sweet…Continue

As a parent, I've often found myself doing things that I wouldn't dream of doing on my own free will -- cleaning poop off a wall, catching puke with my bare hands, dining at a germ-infested Chuck E. Cheese. But the hellacious thing I got roped into doing last week on vacation? Well, that should earn me fabulous…

While buying school supplies, the quantity purchased do matter a lot. In case if you are buying school supplies in smaller amount, you would not probably notice the price. However, the situation may change if you are trying to purchase the entire list of school supplies for your child's school. Moreover, when school starts and you have no low-priced school supplies available and just expensive substitutes are available, then you would definitely have to pay a lot for school supplies. Let us…Continue
So, where did I leave off...Right, I had just been told by a doctor, I did not really know, that my condition, Endometriosis, had gotten very out of control. And that my husband, of four months, and I should start trying for kids right away. Can you say terrifying!
This is a huge decision in a persons life. Even though we had been together for 6 years at this point, we had only been living together alone for about 8 months. We were still getting to know each other in that sense. Likes…Continue

It is quite hard to choose newborn baby gift baskets. They currently come in absolutely all sizes and shapes. Choosing one is difficult because of this huge diversity.

If you read the blogging better series, you know that I am a H-U-G-E advocate of using social media to market your blog. I talk a lot about Facebook and Twitter, but it kind of begs the question: what about Instagram?
The truth about Instagram is that it is one of the fastest growing forms of…Continue

I don’t know about your kiddos, but my toddler loves to create art. Between all of the pieces he brings home from school and his amazing little weekend creations, sometimes I feel like we have toddler art coming out of our ears. But toddler artwork is adorable, so I really don’t mind.
Now, there’s only so many paintings that fit on our fridge – and on the walls of his playroom – before we run out of room. So we’ve had to learn to be selective when it comes to what we keep. I don’t…Continue

Like a lot of parents, I often think about the nature/nurture influences on my son. In addition to his daddy's captivating eyes will he inherit a love of playing music, too? My little guy has already showed some proficiency at telling stories like his Mom, but will that skill…Continue

May wouldn’t have happened, I would be holding a just born baby girl in my arms right now.
My c-section was scheduled for 9:30 this morning. As of last night, it was still scheduled – the hospital called to confirm that I would be there by 7 am. Seriously.
Since we lost her, I’ve had this tendency to make the day before a big post-stillbirth milestone much more emotional than the actual day is. So…Continue

My husband and I were friends for years before we became a couple. All those years of friendship added up to lots of funny stories about mutual friends and was a great way to determine how compatible we are. Since the time of our transition from buddies to spouses, we've had relatively few arguments. Sure there are areas where we don't always see eye-to-eye, but overall, we are on the same page.…Continue
