Raise your hand, if like me, you find yourself wondering how awesome life would have been as a single person if you possessed the same productivity as you do now as a parent! Even on my laziest days, the amount of tasks I get done when my kids take just an hour-long nap is […]

The to-do lists and expectations we have as moms can bring on stress. We’ve all been there. On top of our already packed schedules, we have school events to attend, homework to be supervised, a grocery list (not to mention grocery shopping) to manage all while juggling a busy workday. It can be overwhelming. Who […]
Family time has changed since we were kids, especially with all of the “must-do” items on our lists. Most days I wear many hats (nurse, chauffeur, teacher, chef, and more) as most moms do. As a stay at home/work from home mom, there is always something I can cross off my to-do list. It is […]
For someone who has worked very hard in the past few years to embrace a lifestyle that is more about experiences and less about stuff, this is a hard time of the year! The minimalist in me sees the holidays as a good opportunity to make room and own fewer materialistic things. BUT the fun […]
As I sit here with my newborn sleeping peacefully, I’ve had a moment of clarity. My husband just got back from the store in search of things to make life just a bit easier. We rummage through the bags and can’t help but think, “Wouldn’t it be lovely to have a list of the top […]

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 […]
One child. Only-child syndrome. Spoiled brat. Lonely kid. Maybe a little socially awkward? All of these are terms/phrases used to describe only children. Why would anyone choose to have only one child, right? As someone who grew up in a large Irish-Catholic family with five siblings, it might seem strange that here I am, advocating […]
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 […]
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 […]
