Tekhni Persephone Onyx Review

Tekhni Persephone Onyx Review

Tekhni Persephone Onyx 100% cotton. Size 6 and 27.5 inches wide. When I pulled this bad ass wrap from the package my first thoughts were this is not what I expected. The pattern is a much smaller scale than it’s older brother Ceres, which to me, is more aesthetically pleasing. The weft is black but […]

UnAttaching from Attachment Parenting

UnAttaching from Attachment Parenting

I identify with attachment parenting. With Lola it came more natural than it did with Brody but she also sort of forced it on me. She is my “high needs” child. She constantly likes touching, even in her sleep. Most nights Lola would fall asleep with someone holding her little hands. Even at her fussiest, you hold […]

Mom Monday: Cassi’s Breastfeeding Journey

Mom Monday: Cassi’s Breastfeeding Journey

18 months ago our fourth baby, sweet Virginia Rose, came into this world peacefully yet ready to nurse! So…it happened. This time around I felt more prepared, armed with information, knowledge and support people that I would later ask 1001 questions about all things breastfeeding. My last three attempts at breastfeeding were a major failure, […]

A Whole New Level of Parenting Insecurities

A Whole New Level of Parenting Insecurities

Brody had his Meet-the-Teacher for Pre-K yesterday. I decided to take the kids alone since my husband works on the other side of the city and would need to take off almost a half day. By some miracle myself and both kids were ready to go early! *Gasp!* I am notoriously late when I have […]

Please Keep Talking About Breastfeeding

Please Keep Talking About Breastfeeding

A response to Can We Please Stop Talking About Breastfeeding  Please keep talking about breastfeeding. “I’m going to just get right down to it. Breastfeed, don’t breastfeed, but for heaven’s sake can we please stop talking about breastfeeding?” TJ Falletti writes. My answer, “no.” Absolutely not. Why? Because women need support.
