Helicopter Mom

When I got my son dressed this morning, I chose the cutest jeans to go with a striped long sleeved onesie. Paired it with some cute baby Sperry’s. Hair on point. I was super happy with the cute outfit and how put together he looked. Mom point for me, right? And then breakfast happened. Egg…

First Year of Motherhood

I woke up on this day one year ago just like it was any other day… plus a giant pregnant belly. My due date was July 6, 2017, and I was sure my kiddo wasn’t going to come out on his own. Thanks to gestational diabetes, my doctor was pushing for induction on his due…

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…

“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….

Pregnancy. It’s a beautiful thing. Women get to experience so many feelings throughout the nine months of growth. They love the feeling of growing another human life inside of their body. The changes they get to experience, private moments for just them and their growing bundle of joy.The excitement of sharing the news with family…

The New Productivity

My enneagram type is three, the achiever. Hands down, the description is who I’ve claimed to be my whole life: “The Success-Oriented, Pragmatic Type: Adaptable, Excelling, Driven, and Image-Conscious”.  I excelled in every setting, and constantly had the mindset of “if you want it done, just do it”. I told my [now] husband we could marry…

Working for the Weekend

My alarm clock buzzes at 5:40am. Though I am tempted to hit the snooze (for the third time), I know what the morning holds and rest time is over. I make my way to the shower, rush through getting myself ready, then head up stairs to grab my little homeboy from his crib. Most days…

Valentine’s Day Fun!

Valentine’s Day is a weird holiday. Some people go all out— balloons, candy, flowers. The works. Some people do something a little more low key like an intimate dinner with their love. Others don’t even acknowledge the holiday. Personally, Michael and I are the low key celebrators. I will admit that I am way more…

The Comparison Trap.

We are our own worst critics. It’s true. We tend criticize everything we do– maybe it wasn’t good enough or we did it wrong. Whatever. This is especially true when it comes to being a mom. There is so much information out there. So many voices and opinions that swirl around us. We never think…
