So I said to myself, “Self…you have been sorely neglecting your duties as Mayor of late…”. Myself responded with a rude gesture & a string of expletives that made even me blush. Then I was clocked over the head with a calendar. A sad reminder that September is looming, & with it, the two things I struggle with the most…the loss of my babies back to the school system, & the impending arrival of…Continue
I am an anomaly: I married right out of high school and started having children at a young age. While most of my classmates are only now starting their families ten year later, my third baby is starting kindergarten in the fall and baby four is almost ready for preschool. I am not, however, one of those barefoot and pregnant women. I am part of a new, yet growing, segment of the population that is having children first and then growing a career after their family is…Continue

Michael: So the baby is going to be born in about an hour, we should talk about a name.
Me: How about Jz?
Seriously, that is exactly how it went. In North America, we are pretty lucky when it comes to naming options: we can chose almost anything we want. So…Continue

It all started on a Monday. The date, May 19th, 2008. I was still asleep. The time was 3 am or something close to it. I woke up. I really did not know why but I thought "Huh, that was weird". An hour later I
woke up again this time wondering if it had all started.
Being a first time mommy back then I was a little scared. It wasn't until we got out of bed that I realized labor had started. We took a shower and, since we used to live 4 blocks from his former job, we went

When I became pregnant for the second time, it took visiting my local doctor once for me to decide that home birth was a must for me. And although I’d considered home birth on occasion, when I finally settled into that route for my birth, it became a life-changing endeavor for my husband and I.
Birth can be empowering. Transformative. And such a positive experience. Natural birth. Home birth. It can be all of these things and more. So, for whichever route you choose…Continue

I recently had quite a tiff with The Baby. My own fault, really. I should just know by now…but I didn’t give her the credit she deserved. You see, she’s a frikkin’ genius…no question in my mind. Yet, I forget this at times, given how wee & adorable this kidlet is. So you’re thinking to…Continue
