Growing my Creativity

What are some of your insecurities as a mom? One of the biggest ones for me is that I’m not playful enough. This may seem ridiculous, but I really struggle with engaging in unstructured activities. I’m great at being on time, serving healthy food, setting boundaries, communicating with my children,…

The Pressure of Being Mom

I’ve found that one of the hardest parts of being Mom is the pressure to always figure it out. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t the go-to for all answers. Sometimes I wish I could just hand my screaming child over to someone else to put to sleep. Why does Mom have…

A Little Macaroni in My Tea

I very rarely drink tea anymore because if I can’t drink it hot, it’s not worth it. And trying to drink tea with lots of little hands grabbing at it kind of takes away from the tranquil experience. So I usually just save the tea for Saturday mornings when I’m…

My daughter looked at me today, with her crystal blue eyes. She looked at me with such awe and admiration and love. It absolutely stilled me. I found myself wishing I could see myself through her eyes. I felt frumpy with formula on my skirt, spit up on my shirt,…

Does Time Out Really Work?

My head is ringing and the backs of my eyes hurt. This is pretty much a constant right now. The toddler tantrums are taking a toll on my body, mind, and spirit, and I’m sleeping less than ever! These girls keep me on my toes, and I rarely get to…

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…

The Good & the Bad of the Breastfeeding Movement

I think there are some wonderful aspects of the breastfeeding movement. I love that we are normalizing feeding in public. I whole heartedly believe we need to take a page out of Europe’s book about how beautiful the body is. In my experience, Americans tend to equate nudity almost exclusively…

The Ebb & Flow of Motherhood

Yesterday was a better day than the one before. Sometimes days like The Duct Tape Debacle linger, and it corrupts our hope for tomorrow, like a plague infecting the soil and future crops to come. But those who overcome adversity build immunity, and I am stronger because I suffered and…
