The Stomach Flu With Kids Is Miserable AF

It happens every winter and always at the worst possible moment. You’re just sitting down to watch a movie with your spouse, you’re getting ready to visit the in-laws at Christmas, or it’s the middle of the night, and you’re deep in a peaceful sleep. And suddenly, seemingly out of nowhere, you find…

Winter In Wisconsin: I Hate It And That's Okay

Winter in Wisconsin…what can I say? It sucks! I hate most everything about it! There is a brief moment following Thanksgiving where I envision a beautiful, white Christmas. But I guarantee you in that vision I am most certainly inside a warm house, sipping a hot beverage, simply admiring…

Motherhood: Things I Wish I Had Been Told

There is nothing quite like being a parent for the first time. Holding your newborn baby, nuzzling your face into their tiny neck and inhaling their sweet smell. Gently rubbing your cheek against their skin and knowing you have never felt anything softer. Your heart simultaneously increasing in size and breaking…

Holiday Traditions: Creating Magic At Home

Holiday traditions can be a tricky thing for new families to tackle. Each person coming into a marriage with their own sentimental attachments to everything they did as a child during the holiday season. Thankfully, my husband and I grew up with pretty similar traditions, so it was never a big issue. And…

Mothers Are Human Beings: We All Make Mistakes

I have a shocking revelation for you. Although we often look like superheroes, mothers are in fact HUMAN! This means that we are fallible, we make mistakes. Yes, all of us! We lose a child at Target, we leave a hot cup of coffee unattended for a moment, we don’t realize the basement door is open when our…

Dreams For My Children

Dear Children,

Before each one of you were born, I wished for you. As I carried each of you inside me, I spent many hours dreaming of what you might be like. I thought about whether you would be a boy or a girl. Would you look more like me or your father? Would your delivery be as we had planned, or…

Running: Inspired By My Daughters

You know those bumper stickers, the ones that say “0.0 I DON’T RUN?” That was me until a couple years ago. Despite exercising nearly every day, I never considered myself a runner, nor did I have any desire to be one.

I knew people who were runners, and I thought they were crazy. These were people who yearned to…

Cycling: My World On Two Wheels

Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike. -John F. Kennedy

As is true for most people, my relationship with cycling began as a young child. I remember pedaling up and down the block in front of my house nearly every day in the summer. In the second grade, I received my…

Swimming: Underwater Meditation

The water is your friend.  You don't have to fight with water, just share the same spirit as the water, and it will help you move.  -Aleksandr Popov

Don't Let Your Kids Roll in the Political Dirt

As I am writing this, we are less than a week away from Election Day, and unless you have been living under a rock for the past year, you are probably well aware of the shitastic spectacle our 2016 presidential election has become. Typically, I am not one to talk politics on social media or my blog because I don’t…

The Kind Of Mother I Thought I Would Be

I should start at the beginning. When I was younger, I never wanted to have kids. My dream was to be a nun and live by myself in a house on the beach. And on particularly difficult days, I will confess to occasionally fantasizing about curling up with a book and a giant bowl of ice cream in that quiet beachside…

It Takes A Village: My Story Of Community

“I am at UW Children’s Hospital in the ER waiting for J to get a CT scan! Call me back as soon as you get this!”

On a Monday afternoon almost 5 years ago, this is what I woke to. I had worked the night before and promptly went to sleep at 8:00 a.m. My husband had the day off and was home with the two little…

Motherhood In The Age Of Social Media

Wouldn’t you love to feel even more inadequate as a mother? Wouldn’t it be wonderful to have all of your worst fears about your competence as a parent confirmed? How would you like to have every person you have ever known be able to tell you what you are doing wrong? Don’t you want to see how all of your…

Meditation is easy...Not

Oh I can't do that, I can't meditate. I feel so silly just sitting there with my eyes closed. Who has time to sit still? Oh that sounds so goofy, I don't want to feel like I am floating.



I have heard so many comments some with merit and some totally bizarre when I have shared my meditation practice journey. I remember when I first began to practice I couldn't wait to spread the word on how life saving it had been for me and all the benefits I was gaining with my practice. Can I just… Continue

An Open Letter to All Expecting Mothers

At a baby shower I attended today, there was a little card on my plate that read, in squiggly, pink script, “Your Advice to the Mother-To-Be”.

You’d think that as a new mom and blogger on everything pregnancy and motherhood-related, I’d have mounds of advice to give… right? But I…

Yes! it's finally Bedtime

Hey dolls, Happy Sunday. Wrapping up August with a revisit to an old post I thought was relevant since school has arrived once again. Summer can be disruptive to a bedtime flow because of the later Sunset and all the fun activities. Getting back into the swing of things can cause stress and anxiety.

 Bedtime for kids can either be fun or full of drama.

You had a long day at work or you have spent your day home with the kid’s one task after another and when 7:30 rolls around all…

Parents don't have all the Answers

 A lovely evening of Pretty Little Liars watching with my Lil mama bought upon some great conversation and as I fell asleep last night this is what I thought of again. So I wanted to talk about it with you.

Here's is a BIG question...

Should I admit I don’ have all the answers? I don’t really know everything after all?

Would it be so terrible of me to actually “be human”?…
