How I Met My Husband

Parenting is hard, and a loyal, devoted partner can make all the difference. If you’re lucky enough to have a significant other, be thankful. If you’re still looking, be patient; the right person will come when you least expect it. I used to hear some variation of that every time…


Baby V is Here!

So far, I’ve only had the chance to introduce my older daughters, L & R. Baby V joined the clan in December at 10:16 in the morning, weighing 8lbs 3oz and measuring 21 inches long. Now, as you’ll soon find out, I am not usually the kind of mom to…


Potty Training – The Poopocalypse

It all began with a pair of socks. I asked Yev, “Hey can you grab me a pair of socks for L’s feet? They’re cold.” “Why don’t I just turn up the heat?” “Because I get hot really quickly with the morning routine. I’m already taking them to the park…


Pregnancy Round 2

I found out I was pregnant the day before my husband’s 30th birthday, March 31st. We’d been trying for a few months; each month’s period bringing a depressing reminder that most people can’t have unprotected sex just once and get pregnant with twins. It was really odd for me to…



As I’ve mentioned in Digestive Issues, I have a blood-injection-injury phobia. I’ve been in therapy, done hypnosis for it, and it alleviated much of the problem; however, with two breech babies inside me, I had a scheduled c-section. This meant my doc and I had to have a real talk.…



Let’s talk pain. I was not in particularly great shape before becoming pregnant, but I definitely wasn’t in terrible shape either. I would walk outside for about 45 mins before work, a few days a week. I had been working with a nutritionist to develop a healthier body image and…


Food Aversions

I feel most women don’t talk about food aversions enough. Everyone just seems to talk about cravings. The number one question I was always asked was, “So what are you craving??” And to be honest, I had a super boring answer, “Fruit.” People want to hear about the pickles-and-ice-cream cravings,…


Digestive Issues

Ok. Let’s talk about all those wonderful digestive issues that accompany pregnancy. The first one that plagued me was nausea. I started getting nauseous at 4 weeks. And I thought, no big deal. This isn’t bad at all. I can do this. Well, by week 6, digestive issue #2 came…



Let’s talk about TEETHING. I’m sure you’ve heard the advice, “Just put a little whiskey on the gums. They’ll be fine.” Well folks, it’s a lot more complicated than that. R started teething painfully around 9 months. I measure this by the inverse relationship of increased teething for baby and…


1st Time Mom

There were several things about being a first time mom that surprised me, and many of them were disappointing. First, no one talks about how SICK she was. I had always heard about morning sickness (which by the way doesn’t have to be in the morning), but I didn’t know…
