Room in my Heart

Room in my Heart

I love to step back and look at each of my precious little girls and see how incredible they are. Honestly, I thought I knew it all when I had Zoelie. Never in history did anyone have a baby girl as pretty as mine, as smart as she was. No one had a daughter as […]

Babywearing: Narrow Blanket Podaegi

Babywearing: Narrow Blanket Podaegi

I have always been a HUGE fan of Podaegi’s or what are usually referred to as Pod’s.  Pod’s are a Korean style babycarrier, and similar to a Mei Tei.  Unlike a Mei Tei though, Pod’s only have 1 strap instead of a waist and shoulder straps like the Mei Tei does.  The one pictured above […]

The Hare and the Bear Had Crazy Hair

The Hare and the Bear Had Crazy Hair

I have the worst hair. It’s a fact. It is curly, frizzy and a combination of coarse and thin. It never does what I want it to, and to look semi-presentable takes a lot of time with the curling or straightening iron. For most of my childhood, neither my mother nor I knew how to manage it. […]

Tattooed and Breastfeeding?

Tattooed and Breastfeeding?

I am at a tattooed mama and I am proud of it. I am a walking canvas of things that have motivated me, inspired me and changed me. I am also somewhat of an addict when it comes to getting drilled with beautiful art. If I go too long without one I experience withdrawal like […]

The problem with intactivism

The problem with intactivism

After becoming a mother of a boy with an intact foreskin I learned that there was a whole branch of anti-RIC (routine infant circumcision) folks who call themselves intactivists. I did a little soul searching and a little research and realized that I felt the same way. I wanted to save all the penises. I’ve […]

Baby 3 Needs A Name

Baby 3 Needs A Name

Ever since I was a little girl, I fantasized about my future grown-up life. I wasn’t much for dolls, but I did love to daydream about my future husband, my future children, our house, my career, what pets we would have.  I loved to doodle “Mrs. So-and-so” on the inside covers of my notebooks in […]

Buckle Bopper!

Buckle Bopper!

Are you one of the approximate 290,000 Americans with some form of arthritis? Do you have hand weakness and find it difficult to unbuckle your child (or grandchild) from their carseat?   The maker of the Buckle Bopper had just this very problem, and so the Buckle Bopper was born.  When Xza and I came across […]

And Then This Happened…

And Then This Happened…

I am not perfect. I am actually far, far, far from it. The area in my life I feel like I “fail” most often is in the parenting department. The times when I am at a loss for how to discipline, or I said the wrong thing, or I was too consumed in my phone […]

Normal. Development. Worry

Normal. Development. Worry

My son does not walk. He does not talk, and he doesn’t clap his hands. I’m not embarrassed by these facts, but for some reason it has been hard for me to say all of this out loud prior to now. He is 14.5 months old, and sometimes I wonder if I am doing enough […]
