So Big!

So Big!

So big! Atticus is getting SO BIG! And so is MommyCon…. My two babies. If you asked me a year ago if I thought MommyCon would be such a big thing, I would be pretty skeptical. Actually, back in April, I had doubts after a semi-poor turnout in Phoenix, my spirits were a bit frazzled. […]

Baby Update: The Kolker Kids

Baby Update: The Kolker Kids

So many changes, so little time! I remember when Zoelie was born, just staring at her glorious little self with total amazement, but with an impatience and a dream of watching her grow. I couldn’t wait until she could sit, could say her first word, could walk. I wondered what her hair would be like, […]

Punk rock mom 2.0

It’s been a year since I was pumping (milk) on stage during the Descendants to bring home to my 10 month old nursling. It was our first real time apart from Atticus. I was equal parts excited, and scared shitless. This year I had the same tinge of anxiety leaving Atticus behind Friday night, but […]

Those last few weeks are crucial. They are also excruciatingly slow to pass. By 37 weeks I was ready to have Sebastian. I had pubic symphysis my entire pregnancy and was tired of being in pain. Every day I would hope and pray that he would come. My midwife, Aliza, was hopeful also. I had […]

Food No Comment

There are so many posts floating around on Pinterest for this recipe. I tried the most popular one. I switched a few things up, such as using whole wheat pasta instead of white, minced garlic instead of whole and added about 20 minutes onto the cook time. I liked this because it was quick, easy, […]

First Week Back

First Week Back

Start of school is always bittersweet for me. Kicking the kids out of the house for a few hours is fantastic, I enjoy my time alone with SquishyBaby and to just relax in the quiet.  It’s also sad for me too.  SquishyKid 1 is in 4th grade this year, which means he only has 2 […]

The Last Drop

The Last Drop

Sleepy, cold. 18 hours go by and still sleeping. “We have to wake him up.” “Maybe he is teething?” “Something’s not right.” “… Maybe he is just catching up on sleep?” Another two hours go by “Atticus, sweetie, Atticus, lets wake up.” Lethargic. Cold. Tired. He falls back asleep. “Do we need to go to […]
