I’m a Hypocritical Mother

Having a daughter enter the wonderful world of womanhood gave me a front row seat to the jarring reality of how poorly our society had prepared me to prepare her. I think my husband said it best, when I was distracting my son so that my daughter could sneak maxi pads into her suitcase for […]

Why We Judge

Moms Judging Moms. The Mommy Wars. Mom Shaming. It’s the subject of countless books and blogs. I know that I’ve both judged and been judged. Despite pleas for moms to be supportive of each other, embrace our differences, and just get along, the judging continues. After mothering for thirteen plus years, I’ve realized that most of our […]

Real Talk with New Moms

There is a popular quote that has been floating around the internet.  “To be a mother is to watch your heart walk around outside of your body.” I mean, really?! These words couldn’t explain motherhood any better. So many overwhelming emotions all at once, and sometimes you don’t have control over all of them.  So, […]

35 things for your Tween’s Easter Basket

  I love assembling Easter baskets. It’s been a family tradition since the girls were babies. Holiday traditions naturally evolve as the years pass. This is the third Easter that we’ve had non-bunny-believers, a fact that I’ve managed to completely ignore for the last two Easters.   Recently my girls and I were in Target. While they looked at clothes, […]

When Baby Boy Transformed into Middle Child

For a while, we were so happy with our family dynamic. We had two boys, Eldest Boy and Baby Boy. To us, it was perfect. Nothing is better than brothers! Then one day, shortly before our Baby Boy turned three, we decided that we were wrong. We could see more babies in our future. And […]

Their Space

  I’m conflicted about the state of my daughters’ bedrooms. They are thirteen and their rooms are a perpetual state of mess. One occasionally gets tired of her own mess and picks up. Her twin does not. I have always been a little OCD. Well, OK, maybe a lot. As a child my bedroom was […]

Confessions-of-Lactation-Professional

Confessions of a Lactation Professional

Officially, Lactation Professionals go by a handful of different titles. IBCLC (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant), CLC (Certified Lactation Counselor), Lactation Educator, and Lactation Specialist are a few of the most common titles you’ll come across in the US. Unofficially, it gets a bit more colorful. Lactivists, Nipple Nazis, Breastopo, and Anti-formula Freaks are a few […]

Parting is such sweet sorrow? Perhaps not when it comes to toddler friendships

There are many articles on how to leave your toddler with the babysitter/daycare/camp etc. without incurring a meltdown. Do you sneak out? Or, do you acknowledge their fears? Perhaps you sing a goodbye song? (Our favorite, Grown-Ups Come Back by Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood). However, I’d like to take a moment to appreciate the way toddlers greet […]
