I’m pulling my hair out. Literally.
I’ve reached the postpartum stage where a woman’s hair begins to fall out. Yay. If you know me, you’d know that I cannot stand loose hair. It disgusts me. I’m not quite sure why, but I just know it’s not for me. I’m the friend who will pick loose hairs off of the back of your shirt.
During this part of my postpartum period with my firstborn, I was pulling out handfuls of hair in the shower every day for a month. I’m…Continue

Today I realized I’ve been either nursing or pregnant for the last 38 months. Yes, 38 months of either my daughters growing inside me or happily sucking on my breasts while they nurse.

This made me think about all the places I nursed over the years.

I’m so sorry I’ve been so out of touch. I know you know I’ve been busy, and I know you say you understand, but really, I have no excuse for having neglected you most of this past year.
I thought so…Continue

It’s so easy to turn inward when we think about motherhood and what it means and how we do it every day. But even celebrities are not immune to trying to do it all – of course, their circumstances and list of daily to-do’s are different, but in essence, maybe not so much, as evidenced by…Continue

I am making sure that I bake with my girls at least once a week this Summer.

Said cake was devoured within hours of frosting.…
