I found this quote on an article from FAMEBaby (Baby Center's Celebrity blog) today:
“I will tell you what I can’t abide - and I think the Internet has really created a space for it - women criticizing other women and mothers criticizing other mothers. It just makes me crazy, whether it’s between staying at home, going to work, how long you breast-feed, if you use formula. I feel like we should just assume everyone is doing the best they can. Women should take care of each other,…Continue

I just thought I would open this blog with a post about myself as a way to say HI!
My name is Jess and I am 23 years old. I am married to my college sweetheart and we have two beautiful girls together. Grace is 3 (4 in March!) and Brynley is currently 5 1/2 months old. So I definitely have my hands full with the two of them. I am a SAHM who cloth diapers, breastfeeds and enjoys babywearing. My husband and I are also hoping to homeschool our girls as long as everything goes to plan. I… Continue
I'm sure that most of you know what a blogging community is. It's a great resource for all bloggers to gain and/or share information about your blog and blogging in general. You can join different groups for specific interest, including everything from listing giveaways to meeting other bloggings in your area. You can find tons of great ideas and also find a lot of very nice people.
I have a pretty nice sized collections of blogger communities that I am a member of and I wanted to… Continue

Stork parking was an exciting thing when my husband and I first found out we were pregnant. We couldn't wait to go to Babies R Us to finally park in the coveted "Stork Parking" spots. Granted, we first parked in it a few days after we found out we we're pregnant and I was only about 5 weeks along but fast forward 7 months later and I have realized what a difference… Continue

Don’t you hate it when you run the grocery store, bolting out of the house just as you are, in mom mode: hair frazzled, clothes askew, and no makeup on. Of course, Murphy’s Law kicks in and you run into your boss, ex-boy-friend or arch nemesis from that group of perfect/pretty moms.
More often than not, I find myself underdressed and less made up than I was before kids, and even though I wouldn’t change a second of my mom life… I do kinda wish I… Continue

There are several days during the week that have some sort of special meaning to them. Monday is the day we all dread as we are heading back to work. Wednesday we look forward too because that signifies that half the work week is over (don't say "Hump Day", you sound stupid), Friday is great because the weekend is here and Saturday and Sunday are… Continue

Ok, so here’s the deal. I’m not exactly as vigilant as I should be about what my kids watch. I tend to watch something, get seriously into it, and then when it’s too late, notice my kids are with me watching it, and it is TOTALLY inappropriate. Bad news. Well, this bad habit has come back to bite me in the ass in a somewhat disturbing, yet totally hilarious way. %
Here is a pic of my son’s latest homework assignment, front and back.…
Ever since I was a little girl, I knew I wanted a family when I got older. I had my son on March 31, 2007 and I love being his mommy. Motherhood is such a wonderful experience. I remember when I was pregnant, I purchased a heart monitor (to hear his heart beat). I listened to his heart beat every hour. I would even wake up in the middle of the night and listen to his precious heart beating. I am so grateful and thankful to have him in my… Continue

I am wondering how many parents are like me in their inability to keep up to date on political issues. It is frustrating to say the least, to not have the time to listen to the news or to read the newspapers and whenever I do get the chance to get better informed I usually wind up either in tears and angry from reality or completely confused.
Listening to educated people is my alternative and I try to listen to all sides so that I can make my own opinions. One of the most important… Continue

I would not be so quick to frequent a blog that only talked about how perfect the kids were, how well mom cooked from scratch, how clean and beautiful the house is, how unfrazzled she is at the end of the day…Sure, I like those stories, but if I have a bad day, or am making dinner from a box or cleaning the crayon from my entire floor, or changing the 3rd blowout of the day, or ready to pull my hair out for a variety of reasons, those posts just will NOT make me feel better. I need the kids in… Continue

Sometimes I think the most difficult part of having a baby is not the sleepless nights, not the crying, not the birth….it is being away from her. I won’t lie, sometimes it is a needed break when I go to work or I travel and get to sleep past 5 am but not being with her outweighs any brief moment of pleasure I have. I do feel that I am a better mommy to her because I work though. That may not be the case for everyone but for a driven chick like me, someone who thrives on competition and her… Continue
So lucky to be invited to this event on Wednesday night! I was so tired in the late afternoon and sooooo tempted to bail and curl up on the couch with a cup of tea. I can't tell you how happy I am that I powered through the nasty traffic and torrential downpouring rain to go! Here's a video of the swag from the tweetup and of course of my "crowned" toes (my daughter was so jealous).
Do you have handbags in your closet that you love but just haven't worn in a few seasons? Don't throw them out! Bring your fabulous and gently used handbags to the My Mommy Purse Swap. You'll be able to browse other purses and go home with a fabulous "new" find. Meet other mommies, enjoy some snacks, and bring the kiddos too. All purses that are not adopted will be donated to Dress for Success. This event is open to all women in the Houston area, not just moms.
Sunday June 14th…Continue
