A Thank You Note To Stay-At-Home Dads

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post called A Thank You Note To All The Good Dads. I received a comment from a mom who said she appreciated the sentiment, but if she wrote the letter, it would be from a very different perspective. Since I can only write from my own experiences, I told her I’d love to hear a similar letter from her point of view, which is a working mom who’s husband is a stay-at-home dad ....more

“Momma, Hold Hands?”

Anticipating A New Baby

I recently had an afternoon to go shopping by myself, without time constraints or the pressure to rush home. The intent of this trip was to get some shopping done for the sweet baby boy who’s getting bigger in my belly each day. Unlike my other pregnancies, all the preparation is being jam packed into the last few weeks ....more

They Call Us Momma

For some of us, being a mom is something we’ve been dreaming about since we were little girls. We loved to play house, loved to dress and take care of our dolls, and loved to boss around our siblings or friends who were younger than us. For others of us, motherhood wasn’t something that was on the forefront of our mind ....more
