8 Ways I'm Turning Into My Mother

Originally posted at Just Playing House.

My sister and I always had a pact that we'd have each others backs as we got older. Kind of like an accountability partner. Making sure the other didn't do, say, or turn into something that we had classified as bad.

This pact was born in the wake of seeing a stringy, black hair growing from our great grandmother's chin. We just couldn't fathom not having someone right there to tell us…

With every milestone our children make, one door closes and another opens.  It all starts with the bottle and never seems to end.  Next comes the diapers, the crib, the pacifier and the toddler bed.  Time seems to move so quickly yet when we look back, it seems like ages ago that it all began.

We don’t often think of the stages and phases a mom…

5 Parental Frustrations

Originally posted at Just Playing House.

When you become a parent you expect there will be moments that drive you batty. I have to admit, these are 5 parental frustrations I never expected. Though, I'm guessing they are pretty universal.

  1. Where are your shoes? - Every day I ask this question at least twice! They never remember where they took them off. And somehow the shoes end up being in two…

Top Four Things You Might Need To Lose Your Baby Weight (And it's not proper footwear and lose-fitting clothing.)

So, you've decided it's time to lose the baby weight. Fantastic! You're a rock star! You can totally do this! Being a mom though, you'll be needing a few things that your pre-baby self probably wouldn't think of, so here they are:

#4. A good sports bra. Sounds obvious, right? Well, sure, but the ta tas have had a serious makeover since you last stuffed them into a comfy cotton bra. And the culprit is gravity. It's not fun being hit in the face with a boob, or having them swing one… Continue

When small things feel hard

Have you had a day when it was hard to get out of bed?  I'm not talking literally, I mean physically IT HURTS TO MOVE.  I recently (like last week) had a laparoscopic procedure.  I'm filled with joy to say everything went well.  Although, for a few days it hurt to move.  It was uncomfortable to sit, to lie down and to walk.  Well, I don't know about your body but I'm not sure what other positions my body expects me to be in!   

I'm starting…

This Is (REAL) Life

It's hard. It's messy. It's mine.

I haven't had a shower today. Or brushed my hair.  I was convinced I would make it to CrossFit at some point. And I never did. So I've been in full gym paraphernalia all day... With unbrushed hair and unbathed body.

 Yes- I went to Publix like…

Transitioning Mom: Where is my Epidural Now?

They warn you about the pain of childbirth. They even express all the different means for managing said pain and in such depth that there are literally tons of books written on the topic!

The Rewards of Parenting.

Ever since March 30, 2013 at 12:56pm, our world completely changed. Ella, our first child, had entered the world and has been our little firecracker ever since. I remember having such a hard time in those first few weeks home from the hospital. One of the recurring questions in my mind, and often whispered out loud to myself was, "what the hell did I get myself into, how am I gonna do this??" I thought I was prepared. I truly believed that besides the typical sleepless nights that came with…

Taking Care of You.

A trip to the gym in well over a year. A stop at Dunkin' for my iced coffee (duh!) A hop, skip, and a jump right into the pedicure chair. Eating out to lunch while the food is still hot. And lastly, a relaxing trip wandering the aisles of Target (skip the last part of the sentence hubby)...and spending money. What is all this, you ask? This is a morning filled with ME. Alone. No kids. And it was glorious.…

How many times have you said “NO” to your kids, yet they still keep on asking? Ummm…how about every second of every hour of every day.  Yah…in my house too!  If your answer is never, I don’t believe you!

Keepin' it real.

2015-08-10 17.40.50 So there I was, endlessly rocking my 2 month old son, praying to God that he would finally stop fighting his long overdue nap, and fall asleep for more than 20 minutes. My 2 year old daughter is at the table, flinging her now cold oatmeal on to the floor and walls. I couldn't even yell at this point. Both kids have been up since 5:45am today, and YES, that is extremely early for us over here, especially when we have what seems like 20 more hours of sunlight to conquer. In that…

My Birth Story

A run to CVS to pick up Marlboro Reds and a pregnancy test. Yes, that's how it all started. I couldn't believe my eyes. Sitting in the toilet, starring at that faint pink line. It was so terrifying. It was unplanned, unexpected and I had no idea if I was ready. But really, who is ever ready…
