Cries echo loudly off the dark walls.
As the world snores, I stumble out of bed, sleep clouding my eyes. After a diaper change and an hour of nursing, I'm certain that I'll be able to get a little more sleep. It's in that instant that my 10-month-old…

Childbirth is this big black hole of unknown to an expecting Mom. You can read books, seek advice from women who have experienced it, and prepare in every way possible. Yet, no one can actually tell you what is going to happen in there. It's a crap shoot.
For me personally, this created some anxiety for me 1st pregnancy. I…Continue

Baby day is getting closer and closer. We are only a couple of weeks away and he pretty much could make his entrance into the world anytime now. My hospital bag is packed, baby's bag is packed, and now I'm turning my attention to my diaper bag. I'm so used to packing for a two-year old, I have to retrain my brain for packing for a newborn....they need so much stuff! I'm…

I am a chatter box. I have a lot of conversations, in my travels through my daily day. I have, at times, heard a lot of misinformation about learning disabilities. So I'm going to give every one some super BASIC info on learning disabilities. Knowledge is power man. That way you don't look like a ding dong when you are stating something at a wine and cheese party.

Since I'm about to have this baby, and I'm not really able to do many projects, I thought I'd do a little post of my favorite baby things that we really, really used the first time around and that we plan to use again with baby number two. There is so much baby stuff out there these days, and we found some of it unnecessary. I'm focusing this list on mainly newborn baby needs. It's funny to see all the lists of what you need for baby on different sites, because every baby is so…Continue

When Elijah brought home the flyer for a “Me and My Gal” night at his school, I admit – at first I dismissed it as something I didn’t particularly want to do. I doubted that he even paid any attention to the note about a glow-in-the-dark themed…Continue

Few month ago I face the news I was expecting a baby. At that time, I've been working for several years for IT company in New York. I liked the vibrant life of working days, even though, I was snowed under with various task and had to keep studying since I didn't enough knowledge to get the promotion. In fact , I…Continue

We've all felt it at some point. You took that last bite of food even when your pants begged you to stop. You told someone 'no' knowing you could have said 'yes'. You've told a little white lie: "I'm so tired from cleaning the house all day!" [what really happened] you sprayed the house with Febreeze, moved the basket of clothes to a different spot in the room, and shoved the toys in the closet. Your secret is safe with me. Eventually, our stomachs settle and…Continue
I just want to first start off with a big 'thank you' to my parents for putting their sanity aside and bringing four children into the world---you're the real MVP's. I knew I was lucky, even back then, to experience everything growing up from birthdays to holidays to family arguments all with my [annoying] siblings by my side. I mean, I honestly believe my brothers' arm punches and the sometimes bothersome shadow--better known as my little sister--following on my heels, all…Continue

Sleep is magical, refreshing, blissful, and--well, I don't quite remember because it's been so long since I've gotten first hand experience. Stick a fork in me I'm done. I can't...I just...sigh. Here's a complimentary backstage pass for a look into the goings on at the Repiscak abode, specifically at bedtime. Liam is sleeping like a normal 5 month old baby would, or at least, what I consider to be normal. What's that like you ask? Bed around 8pm, awake a few hours later,…Continue

The day was absolutely dragging; Ella was mad at the world (nothing new these days). Liam was having an off day, thus spending his awake time perfecting the mood know as crabbiness--it's safe to say neither of the kids were feeling it that day. But we, the parents, were definitely feeling it: overtired, patience lost somewhere in the overflowing laundry baskets, and recurring headaches from Mickey overload. Just done with the day already. Oh lookie there, it's only…Continue

Have you ever come across a meme--which by the way, did you know it's pronounced, 'meem'? Why isn't it spelled like it sounds, is my question? Here I was calling it a "me me" for the longest time, looking stup--..oh nevermind--anyways, so have you read a meme on the internet and were totally convinced it was written for you and only you? Yeah, me too! I have LOL'ed at my share of them. So here's a small glimpse into my life at the moment with the help of those clever memes.…Continue

It's no secret that when I became a first time mom, I was a complete and utter hot mess. Our first night home from the hospital was easily one of the hardest nights of my life up until that point. I remember calling my mom at midnight from the cold bathroom floor, sobbing into the phone -- "why didn't you tell me having a baby was gonna be like this? I'm NEVER having another one! I hope Ella enjoys being an only child because I would never voluntarily go through this again!" My mom,…Continue

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…Continue
