This week is World Breastfeeding Week so of course, I’ve got boobs on the brain. Boobs and baby animals. Did y’all follow the story about the baby giraffe at the Maryland Zoo? Little baby Julius. He was born on June 15th to a first-time giraffe mama. Julius struggled to nurse effectively so the zookeepers had […]
“He might need to go up a half a size, but those are men’s.” Jaw dropped. There is no way in this world I am buying my son men’s shoes. I’m not ready for men’s shoes. Mainly because he is 8. Yup, I have an eight-year-old that is the size of the Jolly Green Giant. Every time I look at him I feel like he has grown. And […]

All right, mamas! Something a little different for you today. I love getting together for play dates with my friends and their kiddos as much as any mama does. However, I won’t lie to you. Some weekends, I really just want to ditch the play dates, and do a day date instead. Sans children. With […]

Perhaps one of the most significant transitions in life is giving birth and coming home with a baby. Many of us have never even been admitted to a hospital until we go wheeling into those maternity ward doors ready to burst. And then, a few short days later we are sent home with this new […]
I survived infertility. I hesitated to write that title. Infertility is not deadly. My life was not at stake and I don’t want to lessen what many people go through when they do receive a fatal diagnosis. But in many ways, it was survival. Infertility consumed my life in more ways than one. My relationships […]
When my son turned 6 months, my milk output started to decrease. At that point, I had been back to work for about 4 months and was having trouble keeping up with a regular pumping routine.
