Dear Parents I Used to Nanny For,
Twenty years, twenty pounds, and a marriage and two kids ago, I was your nanny. And I judged you. My parenting standards were based on unrealistic expectations. I knew nothing of the shit storm that is parenting. While I made bewildered mental notes about the state of your home, the behavior of your children, and your fashion choices, you were keeping actual human beings alive. I apologize.
I have seen the light. And so has Anna Lane, who…Continue

Finding the words to welcome this new year has not come easily. I am not sure I was ready for twenty sixteen. Twenty fifteen sort of sailed by. We had a busy end of the year from October events, to Thanksgiving and my high school reunion, to cookie baking weekends and Christmas celebrations. It was a whirlwind and I just never felt caught up.…Continue

Sorry for my absence, but I've been buried in tiny diapers, toddler tantrums, and baby snuggles for the last week. Our little guy arrived last Tuesday morning at 9:31am and life has been whizzing by ever since!
This is Bowen James and he is 7lbs 1oz, and 20 1/2 inches long. I don't want to say he is the perfect baby, because I know it will bite me in the butt later, but he kind of is. He's the sleepiest, hungriest, cuddliest little babe and he is the perfect addition…Continue

To eat and exercise right will benefit the rest of your day. Mornings begin by turning a light on. And what I do for the rest of the day can keep the light on or burn it out. Giving my morning a generous head start keeps my energy and attitude more positive for the rest of the day. I’m a morning person, but a LATE-morning person. I don’t do wondrous things first thing.
After I wake up, I make a sleepy, quiet trek across the house to the kitchen to start breakfast. I stay in my sleepy…Continue

My husband once shared an interesting observation about our generation's way of parenting. He said that we tend to make changes for our children based off what we didn't like about our own childhoods:…

The biggest shock after having our son is that after four days the hospital was letting us take him home.
Despite the baby prep classes and recovery time from my C-section and the video the nurses insisted that we watched, it seemed really soon. As in: We don't know what we are doing yet - are you sure you…

Happy 2016!!! Did you make a New Year's Resolution? I didn't.
I don't make New Year's resolutions...anymore. No deep-rooted reasons why, other than I have a track record of not sticking to them. For years, I have wanted to lose weight. An example of my New Year's resolution then would be to lose 25 pounds by my 25th birthday, or by an…

Little B is almost 3 months old. That means every single day, multiple times a day, I've put her at my breast to feed and nourish her. After the first few goes at it, you tend to get to know the ropes and it becomes second nature. Here are six things that I've learned from my very short time breastfeeding.
It can hurt
But then it gets better! For the first 6 weeks or so, every single latch made me wince in pain.…Continue

Whenever you visit a blog to check up the content it offers you may sometimes wonder who exactly is behind the blog posts that you are reading, if you aren't already aware. Since I am new to the blogging world and new to Mom Bloggers Club I thought the most appropriate way to "get my foot in the door" is to start with an introduction blog post. If you're not really curious about my boring not so traditional life then there are no hard feelings if you decide to skip over this initial blog…Continue

Nowadays the Internet and television dictate the way we live. (Even if you are not an avid TV consumer, you will still know who the Kardashians are or what happened to John Kerry.) Some information is simply impossible to dodge. The key thing the media are telling us is that we should keep watching other people's lives to fill the voids in our own existence.
But the actual truth is quite different – you must be the person taking care of yourself and filling those empty spaces with…Continue
