Sometimes when I look at Liyah, I realize she IS going to grow up - as
sad as that may be :( I wonder what she is going to strive to be, what
she is going to wish on all the stars for. When I was younger my biggest
BIGGEST dream of all was to get married and have a family. I knew I
wanted to be like my mom and be a stay at home mom. I may have done
things a little backwards, and I may not be able to be a SAHM but I have
my Jaliyah and I couldn't be happier.… Continue

Last night I spent some time in the company of some amazing women. All mothers, all with school age kids under the age of 10, all of whom “get it”.
About a month ago, a friend and I had the idea to start a small support group. The original idea was for mothers or fathers of kids who are on the spectrum, and with the help of the school district, we Continue

Our first meeting last month was so nice that…

It seems everything we need to know in life we learn in preschool. My 4
year old has been repeating, "Mommy, to have a good friend, you've got
to be a good friend!" No doubt a piece of sage advice bestowed upon her
by her wonderful preschool teacher.Anyways, Bella tends to like to
share these words of wisdom with Mommy. Normally, I say ,"Yes, sweetie.
That is right!" But, this time I actually took the advice to heart and

Ok, so its come to my attention lately that apparently, I am not the

a way to raise a family, keep them healthy and happy, and ,while doing
so, keep herself in shape. So, I am proposing that Wednesday, the until

Good morning and happy Tuesday to you all. It's been a long week of carrying the weight of the world on your shoulders. Here's where Mommies can come to vent and get rid of some of that unwanted weight, metaphorically speaking anyways. Though, the more I think of it, there could very well be a link between carrying the weight of the world and holding a little extra baggage around our middles! But that's another post altogether! LOL Today, we're gathered here to vent and unload. You can comment… Continue

When I heard about the World Breastfeeding Challenge, scheduled for October 3, I immediately knew I wanted to go. I’m up for a challenge! All over the world mothers would unite and latch on their children at the same time — what a great idea to promote breastfeeding! So Landon and I drove to the White Plains, New York, location, which was Full Circle Family Care. I told him there would be a lot of babies, and since he loves babies, he was all exited.
I was proudly sporting my “Yes,… Continue

While pregnant or even before, every woman inevitably thinks about the topic of breastfeeding. Will I breastfeed my baby? For how long? I think most women have the best intentions and try to breastfeed and then stop after different periods of time – they might breastfeed a week, they make it through the rough first few weeks and go on to nurse for a few months or a year, and then there are the extended breastfeeding moms like me.
I believe your breastfeeding success has everything to… Continue

After my wonderful experience with it, I have become passionate about breastfeeding and would like to encourage as many moms as possible to start and continue to breastfeed — that is a major reason why I started my blog, DagmarBleasdale.com
. No matter how long you choose to breastfeed — one week or four years — I want to be a resource and cheerleader for all new mothers because I believe most women can nurse their child with the… Continue

Like all mothers out there, I love all my children the same, but differently. The amount of love I have for each of them is immeasurable, but the things I love about them and the experiences I have with each of them are quite different.
I love my first born in a special way, because he is just that … my first born. Together we have experienced so many firsts that have been indelibley etched in my brain and on my heart. God willing, we will have many more before my journey is through.… Continue

Joel and I have always been an active couple. We met on the college track team. Both pole vaulters (he was amazing, by the way). Have always loved the same things. Avid runners, wakeboarders, snowboarders, surfers, anything active and outdoors really. When we decided to have a baby we had a lot of negative forecasting. Many people were telling us our lifestyle would change. That frustrated us. Always thought it doesn't have to be like that! I hated the classic... "you will see… Continue
