I was always told from day one to create a routine with your child and stick.to.it. After we brought home our son from the hospital, in my sleep-deprived haze, I deemed that advice to be silly. Boy was I wrong. I waved that white flag and admitted defeat against a one-week-old baby. I knew we […]

We all want to be as helpful as possible to the amazing men and women who educate our children. But if you are anything like me, you struggle with what is actually helpful. Aside from the obligatory school supplies and ever-present “wish list” at the end of the newsletter- what do teachers actually want from […]
When I first started packing my young toddler’s lunch for daycare, I was intimidated. With his limited command of utensils, there were only so many things he could eat independently and it was overwhelming to try to figure out what to give him every day. Especially since I wanted to send him with a variety […]
Have you ever failed at something? Ever worked so hard towards a goal only to fail at completing it? Have you ever wanted to achieve a feat but neglected to do so?

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 […]
Dear Mom with the new baby looking completely frazzled, I see you there. I see that you’ve haven’t been sleeping. You may not have even showered. And now…your precious new baby is screaming at the top of their lungs in the middle of Target. I see you and I’m not judging you. I want to […]
I went back to work two months after I had my son and thought I had it all together. Yes, I missed him. Yes, pumping sucked. But I found myself falling into a groove that worked for me. Every morning after he ate, I snuck in a quick snuggle and read him a book before […]
