When my son was in daycare, there would be a moment right before I would leave where he would cling extra tight to me. He wouldn't cry or beg me not to leave - it was just an extra hug that was hard to part from. His teacher would try to help the transition by saying something along the lines of, "Mommy has to go to work and make that toy money."…

While it’s your right to take time off to have a new child, care for, and bond with it… the government here in the good ol’ US of A definitely doesn’t make it easy. Taking maternity leave as a teacher in America is an unfortunate adventure into lots of red tape! This is especially true if…Continue

So many diapers, wipes, and diaper cream in our future. It is a bit daunting when you look at how many diapers babies need between birth and potty training... which happens around month 4 right :)

I decided to start early on…

It took me about 4 weeks to settle into a night time routine with Oliver. However, since we started, it has been FANTASTIC! I wish that we had started our bedtime routine much earlier.

There are nights that just don't go as planned. I am ok with having off nights, but we try to do our routine whenever…Continue

We fight for a fair maternity leave, and a supportive work environment tooth and nail. We do so because we deserve to have a balance between family life and work. If the organizations themselves were aware of the benefits of maternity leave to the organization itself, I think the battle would get much easier. Not only does maternity leave benefit the organization, it also "greatly" benefits the economy. …Continue

I am now 36 weeks pregnant, so I have 4 weeks to go whoo before I have my bundle of joy. For the past couple of week I found myself being emotional, I’m getting irritated really quick, my patience is real short, and crying for what I don’t know lol.
