I knew it was happening as I sat in the waiting room for at my 6-week postpartum appointment. I couldn’t stop the tears from streaming down my face while I filled out the postpartum depression rating scale. As my tiny baby girl slept next to me in the stroller in the doctor’s office, the crazy mixture of feelings was overwhelming to me. I couldn’t look at her. I felt guilty for not being able to look at her. I didn’t want to…Continue

I blog about motherhood. But sometimes, my blog makes me a bad mother.
These observations came to me slowly over the course of several weeks. I've only been blogging for six months now, but my competitive drive to inflict my writing on the eyes of others, to showcase every funny story or present informative product review videos, sometimes clouds my ability to 'mom' appropriately.…Continue

Oh lawd, I knew this day would come sooner than later. After all, at the time, she was around 7 years old.…Continue

As I watch the rain pour down I cant help but to get a feeling of crap. I LOVE rain days. Like really love them. I have a dream of a perfect rain day and it goes like this:
I wake up feeling refreshed to the smell of coffee brewing and the sound of rain hitting the window. Shortly after my morning yawn-stretch I hear my husband talking. Hearing his voice gives me a euphoric calm, knowing I have help with the kids. As I look out the window with my coffee in hand and watch the rain fall…Continue

A run to CVS to pick up Marlboro Reds and a pregnancy test. Yes, that's how it all started. I couldn't believe my eyes. Sitting in the toilet, starring at that faint pink line. It was so terrifying. It was unplanned, unexpected and I had no idea if I was ready. But really, who is ever ready…Continue
