Sinking

Today’s post is a not so happy one. This week has been a really tough one for my little guy and I. He is teething, resisting sleep and his food intake is regressing. All while I am trying to manage a business that is taking up more and more time. I’m trying to balance, but […]

Not alone. 730 days

Not alone. 730 days

I used to feel alone when my husband was not around. Then I became a mother. And I learned quickly what never being alone felt like. It was touching, I was constantly being touched. Someone was always watching me. Someone was always there. I wasn’t alone anymore, but why did I feel so alone? Motherhood […]

If you don’t like profanity, you may want to skip this post. “Doesn’t that hurt your back?” “Nope, it’s very supportive.” “Doesn’t he walk?” “Yes, he likes walking and bolting in parking lots and touching random outdoor objects….” “.. Yeah, you are going to spoil him by wearing him like that. Also, how much longer […]

Honestly: The Ergobaby 360

It’s been a while since I last blogged, and life has been such a whirlwind. All of these great things are happening around me. Friendships are blossoming, business partnerships growing, and we are taking Atticus’ eating one day at time. For the most part, it has been an incredible journey. We set the MommyCon and […]

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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Lets get clean!

Lets get clean!

I’m kicking off our week of cleaning posts with how I clean our house. Sometimes I feel that statement should have “attempt” placed before the word clean. At times it’s like a never ending saga of cleaning and having the toddler undo everything I just accomplished. Five things that help us keep things tidy We […]

Insecure

I’ve chronicled my past struggles with disordered eating and skewed body perception, and here I am, once again struggling to accept my mom bod. Actually, “mom bod” is just an excuse for me. This is the body that I own, it’s a body that I need to love, and the only way to change it […]
