Things I Desperately Miss About My Pre-Baby Body

Remember your pre-baby body? The one that could pull all-nighters and sneeze without having to change out your under garments? I remember it too, and I miss it immensely.While pregnant I took every precaution known to man to try and preserve my pre-baby body. I did pelvic exercises to save my lady parts. I lathered myself up with oil every night to try and prevent stretch marks. I ate extremely healthy (well, minus the ice cream) and exercised religiously to help prevent excessive weight gain. I even wore special bras that claimed to help maintain “perkiness”....more

My Breastfeeding Truths

Note: Breastfeeding is a personal choice and I support any of my readers / friends who chose to either nurse or formula feed. This post is not about which is better because that is for moms to determine what works best for them and their babies....more

Becoming A Mom Made Me A Cry Baby

We all know that pregnancy wreaks havoc on our bodies, but I'm pretty sure it alters our brains too.  Not only have I developed Momneisa (where you forget everything), but I've also turned into a emotional hot mess since having my kids.

Party Of Five? Finding Out I'm Pregnant With Number Three

Surprise! I’m pregnant with my third child. There, I said it out loud. Now it’s real. My husband and I weren’t planning on a third, but had not yet ruled it out. I, still on the fence, was not ready to close down the baby shop. He, however, was ready the minute our second son was born. To say this comes as a complete shock is a bit of an understatement. ...more
Omg. Loved this. Try #4. Let's just say I'm almost half way through the pregnancy and the shock ...more

Recent Things My Toddler Has Done To Embarrass Me

While I appreciate the bottle of truth serum my toddler seems to over dose on each day, sometimes I wish he knew how to put down the bottle and step away. As someone who gets easily embarrassed in public, having a toddler is pure torture. I’ve definitely toughened up over the past two years, but still struggle to find explanations when he spews out the most inappropriate sh*t (excuse my language) at the most inappropriate times....more

Momnesia Is Real And I Have It

If you're a mom you’ve heard of the term “baby brain” and have most likely even experienced it yourself. Lately I’ve been living in a constant state of Momnesia, so I can say without a doubt, “baby brain” exists. Ironically this brain fog commonly associated with pregnancy and new motherhood was something my friends forgot to share with me before I had kids. They were clearly suffering from Momnesia too....more

I Am the Walking Dead and Other Reasons I Won't Miss the Baby Phase

Now that my little guy is about to turn one, I find myself relieved to close the door on the baby phase. Not only do I look like a cast member from the Walking Dead, but I act like one too. I'm exhausted, mentally and physically. At this point I would have to be insane to consider adding a third to the clan, but because I'm obsessed with babies, I change my mind on a daily basis. ...more
My first response was going to be "buying diapers!" But, seeing as her son is just now turning ...more

10 REASONS WHY LIVING WITH A (BOY) TODDLER IS LIKE LIVING IN A FRAT HOUSE

Now that I’m a mom of two boys, I’m slowly starting to realize how gross they really are. In fact, I feel like I’m re-living my college days when I was in a relationship with a fraternity boy.  Even though there are not any Greek letters hoisted above my front door; the smells and mess you encounter when you enter – will definitely have you questioning whether or not an entire fraternity lives here....more

My Last Firsts

Remember when I adamantly begged all of you to talk me down from the ledge the minute I started considering a third child? Well my friends – the time has arrived. My son is only five months old and I’m already yearning to give him another sibling....more
