Superhuman Mombilities

All right ladies, let’s talk about our superhuman mombilities. That’s right, mombilities. Every single one of us is a super hero. We actually have abnormally heightened senses, and I’ve listed mine below. HEARING Listening while sleeping: I always try to nap when my kids are napping. It hasn’t been happening…

Gluten-free Foods that are Delicious

Being gluten-free isn’t that hard, until you want to chomp on a piece of toast, chow down on some pizza, or twirl  your pasta with a fork.

A Little Me Time

So I had planned on writing some epic saga about how fighting with my husband today left me hollow and broken. I was going to explain how feeling unheard triggered childhood wounds, erupting in a yelling match. I was going to describe the endless tears, soar voices, and throbbing heads.…

9 Weird Things I Did When I Was Pregnant

Pregnancy is notorious for bringing out the oddest cravings and behaviors in women. Here are a few that I personally experienced, and I added a bonus section that includes some goodies from my friends and family. I would carry packs of Cinnamint Orbit gum with me everywhere to smell when…

A Letter to My Gardener

Dear Gardener, I wish I could tell you how often we talk about you. You come up about every 15 minutes because your name has become synonymous with every loud and scary noise. Your name has given my daughter some nugget of understanding when something frightens her. Your name has…
