And so I have found myself at my last day of maternity leave. I am beside myself. I don’t know what to do first. I felt bad, too, because I was so upset that I took it out on my husband this morning. I normally don’t see him mornings because if the baby wakes up … More The last day
I figured out one of the primary reasons why women shouldn’t be ALLOWED to go to back to work too early after giving birth. Not only are we exhausted, but our brains are not working well beyond the care of our child. Case en point. I decide to go to Costco on my way to … More A true mom moment
What is it about having a newborn that everyone tells you that they hope you are “getting some rest”? I have heard it a few times today already, and that was just today. While I appreciate the sentiment (ok, maybe I honestly don’t), it’s actually something that stresses me out even more than having a … More Rest is for the weary, not the new mom.
I haven’t had one in a long time. A day for just me, that I can do whatever I want to just have a day to say that I can do whatever I want, but maybe not do anything at all. I didn’t know it was going to happen because my husband’s original plan was … More A True Mom Day
I had my first big meltdown of this pregnancy yesterday. Yes, I am almost 8 months pregnant, so I am just as surprised as you that I haven’t cracked sooner. Honestly, this has been the easiest pregnancy ever – I apologize to those of you who have had tougher pregnancy, but I’ve been there with … More I am not a perfect mom, and now I have proof.
Yes, we have all been there. When our kids’ school or daycare says one thing and we disagree. But this time, it was a little different. I get a text from my husband that our youngest has to be picked up. They had pink eye last week (yes, ugh, gross) and it had resolved itself … More Times I don’t agree with my kid’s school
I am on a trip for a conference in Denver. I was super excited to go, and a little nervous being 7 months pregnant. But, after the okay from the doctor, here I am. And although I am this far along, I am constantly surprised (and not in a good way) about how I have … More Chivalry is Dead And Gone.
I’m not saying I don’t recommend it. But definitely, choose wisely. I attended my cousin’s wedding this weekend. It was a beautiful ceremony, actually in the same place I was married. And we left our kids at home, so we didn’t have to worry about whiny-pants showing up uninvited. The food was delicious, the music … More Attending social events while pregnant
I have been on hiatus from my blog. After the summer, heading back to work with the kids back at school has been hectic. Sometimes it makes me think, am I really ready to do this a third time? Honestly, though, some mother might hate me for what I am about to say next. This … More Decaf coffee and lots of chocolate
I had a run in with my three year old today. It happens every now and again, where they decide they won’t eat. Today, it was a cheese sandwich that they decided they didn’t want. But I wasn’t in the room (I got sick of waiting for them to finish), so I didn’t know exactly … More Sticking to your guns
