Giving birth, whether naturally or by C-section, takes a toll on a woman’s body and sometimes her mind. Having to go back to work within weeks or 3 months of giving birth does not allow a family the time to adapt and bond with their new addition. Unfortunately, in the United States returning to work within 3 months of having a child is the norm and for most families a must.

I take my son to cub scouts and swimming lessons, and I go through spelling words with him at night.

You see her at the store. She, like everyone else, is just picking up her weekly groceries, but on her, your eyes linger a little longer. Her head is covered in a telltale scarf, and where hair would normally be peeking through, there is none. You feel pity for her, thinking she must be so sad about her hair. As a cancer survivor, I can tell you her hair is the last thing she is thinking about. Because while it takes so many of the physical parts of a person, its deeper blow strikes the…Continue

Does potty training ever get easier once you start? My knee-jerk reaction is…HELL NO. However, I have only really been at it with my son, Ryder, for the last month or so, and in some ways things have gotten tremendously easier. We have tried so many times before but he just didn’t end up…Continue
