I am tapping my foot as I stand in the pediatrician’s office, waiting to be seen. 

I am here for this unplanned visit because last night I had a moment – an “oh shoot, this kid has a flat head” moment. You know, that 2nd child moment. The poor kid is such a good newborn...

Since I began my January blog series (which has been more a commitment to myself to write more regularly than an actual series), I've heard from lots of people -from women I've never met to close friends and as always, my mom. It's very rewarding to connect in such a g...

I tend to overthink things, as many women do. I have wasted a lot of time worrying about what others think of me. The truth is, for a long time, I have wanted to be liked, really badly. The thought of someone not liking me made me itchy. With such an intense need to be...

2018 held a lot of surprises for me. I got pregnant, sort of unexpectedly, which caused me to relapse into a depressive episode that was similar to what I experienced after Mary Clare’s birth. The pregnancy is such a blessing but the mental health struggles were not we...

UPDATE: this is a more detailed version of my birth story. While it is not extremely graphic, it is still a birth story.

Next week, we are flying south for a few weeks! 

My parents spend a few winter months in Florida so we are going down to visit! I'm really excited to see my parents, it's been over a month which for me is a long time! However, in order to get some warm sun on our faces...

A lot has changed since baby arrived - body and wardrobe included. This post is not focused on body changes. We all have our own unique journey. What I know for sure is that you are a Goddess that grew and birthed a human. Wear clothes makes you feel good! So yes, my d...

As a kindergarten teacher, I'm a huge advocate of play in schools. Montessori and Piaget both are known for the theory that 'play is the work of a child.' Play is a very important, if not the most important part, of child development. I've worked with children in many...

Who doesn't love to cozy up with their little one and a favorite book? As an on-hiatus kindergarten teacher, I'm kind of obsessed with reading and literacy. My mom read to me every night as a kid. Some of my favorite books to this day ("Number the Stars" and "Trumpet o...
