This morning I was woken up at exactly 6:23 by my three-and-a-half-year-old daughter whisper-shouting "I need my bottom wiped!"  A month ago I would have found this slightly endearing, as only a mother could; I would have laughed, followed her...
When I quit my job to stay at home with my baby, I thought, "What a great opportunity to start my own business and work from home!" I had always dreamed of doing videography and photography full time. I...
Before I became a flight attendant, the only thing I knew about them was that they served drinks and peanuts. My access to seeing one in person was limited to the three or four flights. I thought the job was...
I am not technically a hoarder, but I have hoarding tendencies. What I mean by that is, I may have found uneaten Halloween candy from fifth grade just a few years ago.  The worst part of this is, I had...
It's no secret that being a parent is hard work. I see post after post on my newsfeed about the struggles of motherhood. Heck, I even write for a blog that shares the challenges and triumphs of raising little...
When I look in the mirror, I don't recognize myself these days. I look dull, shabby, tired. Maybe it's being spit up on daily by an 8-month-old, non-napping, not interested in solids, teething baby, but I feel like I...

I'm a feminist. There. I've said it. I know these last few months have brought about a lot of feelings regarding this word from all sides. While this post could go in many different directions, I will...
I should've been fired today. To start with, I woke up late because I’ve gotten in the habit of hitting the snooze button. My three-year-old is convinced that there’s monsters in her room, and likes to inform of us...
I’m a stepmom of three years and bio-mom of 6-months, and I can safely say that I haven’t felt like a mom for a single moment of a single one of those days. When Banks was born, I expected my...

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...
Last month I shared with you all about one of our Saturday morning rituals of making an extra special cozy breakfast. That particular day it was our from scratch biscuits with chicken, bacon, and honey. I've had a handful of...
