Thank You Notes From a Mom

November is my favorite month for many reasons: my daughter’s birthday, Thanksgiving, and it’s finally socially acceptable to begin playing Christmas music. Of course, November is also the month for giving thanks and being grateful, which is why I’ve...
About two months ago I began my quest to get into better shape and to establish an exercise routine. I am a stay-at-home-mom to two girls, and my husband works 12-hour alternating shifts. There’s nothing routine about our life. I...

What’s in a Name?

I'm 2-4 weeks away from giving birth to a baby girl (depending on how high my blood pressure decides to be at any given appointment) and she has no name. Right now she is just "baby girl" when I...
Ah, those beautiful babies of ours. They bring so many moments of joy to our lives. And... not so joyful moments. One thing mine definitely did: ruin my social life! When your child is little, it's easy. You just bring...
I have confessed before that I am an extrovert of the highest order. I am textbook extrovert: energized by parties, a verbal processor , and almost always over-committed to activities and social events. I hate to miss anything. When I...
I’ve never been a fan of the term “natural childbirth.” It insinuates that any woman who has a baby with the aid of an epidural or through a C-section somehow had her baby “unnaturally.” I’m pretty sure it’s impossible to go...
When I was growing up, movies were a big deal in my family. Once my brother and I decided that we liked a movie, we watched it a million times on repeat. As my daughter gets older, I am excited...
I’ve given up on my daughter. It’s not for lack of trying on my part – I’ve done everything I can do. There just comes a point in every parent's life when you must admit that it’s time to walk...
Our infertility journey started about 6-years-ago in a bit of a strange way.  My husband and I had been trying to get pregnant for about 8-months or so when I had severe abdominal pain.  I spent several hours in...
Before anyone gets all worked up, I assure you, I love my almost two-year-old toddler so much, I really do. He is cuddly, sweet to his baby sister, and has a fun sense of humor. He is independent, a great sleeper...
My husband and I are only children.  Two peas in a pod, if you will, who have been blessed with two beautiful kids.  So now that I am in way over my head gracefully raising two children, SIBLINGS, who...
I have a confession to make: I curse - a lot. And sometimes in front of my children. I don’t drink (much), I'm not a gambler, and I don’t do drugs, so I consider this my one vice. A vice I...
Ten years ago, I was the young woman who was focused solely on her career and who also used to take her dogs to day care. More recently, and I'm embarrassed to say this, I was also the mom...
When I was pregnant, it seemed like everyone I spoke to had some sort of advice for me - get the epidural, sleep when the baby sleeps, don't give baby a pacifier for at least two weeks. But this...
