The Hardest Part

It was a typical end of the week afternoon in my backyard when I realized what I dislike most about being a mom. My single best friend had stopped by for a visit. She was attempting to entertain my kids while I grilled dinner, me cursing myself for not bringing home a Costco rotisserie chicken…

Breech babe, Toddler trouble, & a Big Move

  When I found out my baby was breech at my 33 week appointment, I immediately began ALL the things to help him turn. I’ve been belly dancing using this video because I heard it can loosen the hips and help a breech baby flip. I’ve been laying upside down ala Spinning Babies. I’ve done…

Maternity Wardrobe

Because for once I’d like to see…

Morning Sickness & Failing at Life #MicroblogMonday

Puking, while peeing yourself. It’s officially happened. Puking, while peeing yourself, as your 16-month old daughter watches, mimicking your hurling sounds? That also happened. With a toddler who’s curiosity leads her to the edge of the toilet, trying to touch, yes touch, the undigested pizza thrown forth, we’ve been having a rip roaring good time over here.…
