Noise

Our one and a half year old recently picked up a habit. A very loud, ear piercing, eye-twitching habit. She screeches. Usually one, shrill, quick, glass-shattering screech. Sometimes she does it repeatedly. She doesn’t care where she is. In the car. In the grocery store checkout line. At a restaurant during lunch. At a playdate….

Mom Guilt

The mom guilt has been real lately. Well, if I’m being honest, it’s been real since day one. It just got more intense once I went back to work and hasn’t eased up since then. I never thought I’d feel the mom guilt. I thought that my general lack of feelings about most situations would…

What’s in your diaper bag?: The Finale

Today we post our last installment of “What’s in your diaper bag?” Some awesome moms took their time to share with us for this post so we can’t keep them hanging! In this post you meet Emily, Courtney, Sarah, and Julia, through their diaper bags! We hope you’ve enjoyed this as much as we have!…

Meeting Myself, Again

One of the biggest chapters of self-discovery (I hate that term) in my life was college. There’s something about living in a tiny apartment with four other females (love you, ladies), five hours away from home, being fueled daily by high expectations and very little sleep that really makes you get to know your inner-self….

Hopes and Dreams.

“You’ll understand when you have a kid of your own.” My husband and I have had this discussion so many times. We’d heard this from our parents and so many other adults throughout our childhood and adolescence. Right, sure. I doubt having a kid will make me feel any different, I would think to myself….

Feeding Baby and the Magical Pouch Maker

Background: When S was old enough to start solids we did a mixture of purees and some baby led weaning. I wasn’t super comfortable with the idea of all baby led weaning so we did what worked for us. She wasn’t extremely into solids for awhile and had some other gas issues from nursing that…

What’s in YOUR diaper bag?

We decided to reach out to a few other mommas to see what kind of goods are in their diaper bags. Items we carry vary based on where we live, how many littles we have, boy or girl, personal preference, and so much more. After our last post (and the positive feed back) we thought…

Our Favorite Things for the First Year

Babies need so many things! But do they really? It is difficult (and pretty overwhelming) sifting through all of those lists on Pinterest while seven months pregnant. “Top 10 baby items you MUST have!” “You don’t want to leave these off of your registry!” Those lists are too much. Here’s a nice comprehensive list of…

Infant in Arms: Flying with an Under-Two Toddler

While I can’t speak for having multiple children while flying quite yet, today I’m sharing my experiences and some things I’ve learned flying with a child under two. I have flown a number of times with her, both with my husband and alone. I will be talking about the most recent time we flew (when…

What’s in your diaper bag?

What’s in your Diaper Bag? We always see those “What’s in your Purse?” posts and let’s be real, we haven’t carried a purse in months. Unless a wallet thrown in a diaper bag counts? But we love hearing what works for other Momma’s on a daily basis, so we thought it’d be fun to hear…
