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…

June Reading Calendar

For the month of June, I’ll be reading “Hot Mess to Mindful Mom” by Ali Katz. I’m definitely looking forward to figuring out some way to balance every day life! If you’re interested in tagging along, here is the calendar. It’s totally flexible, but this is just how I plan to read through. I’ll be…

Know Your Breastfeeding Rights, Momma!

I went back to work when my son was twelve weeks old. I was determined to make it to at least six months of breastfeeding which, of course, meant that I’d have to pump at work. “How will I manage to pump at work?” was definitely a thought that ran through my mind a lot…

Honesty Hour.

I’m going to be honest here for a second: I have no clue what I’m doing. Did I just say that? Yep– big confession there. I have no clue what I’m doing when it comes to being a mom. I’m learning day by day just like tons of other first time moms (and even moms…

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…

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….

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…

Finding Rest.

Rest. It is a necessity but a very scarce commodity for mamas. In a lot of homes, moms are the ones that make things happen. They are the ones that set routines, make dinner, do baths, clean up, create crafts, and so much more. Sometimes mom days start at 5:00 am and aren’t over until after…
