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.

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…

As parents, we always wish the best for our child . Even before his…

Adventures in Nostalgia

I had grand plans to share some sewing tutorials this week to celebrate finishing my last scheduled craft fair.   My one-lady factory days are over, or at least on pause, and this wide open space beckons to be filled with new creative pursuits.

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…

Potty Training the Stubborn Boy

  

Does potty training ever get easier once you start? My knee-jerk reaction is…HELL NO. However, I have only really been at it with my son, Ryder, for the last month or so, and in some ways things have gotten tremendously easier. We have tried so many times before but he just didn’t end up…

8 Ways to Help Your Breastfeeding Partner

Even if your breastfeeding partner is able to stay at home with baby the job is still a very demanding one. In fact, being a stay at home mom has it's own challenges when it comes to socialization and adult interaction.

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…

Here's is a BIG question...

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

Opposites Attract

Now this post is less about the kiddos and more about Mommy & Daddy.

I've always been interested in "personality characteristics" and why people act the way they do. I think it sometimes has to do with how they were raised and a big part is how they are wired. Nature vs Nurture. Voila!

Hubs and I did the …
