At a prenatal yoga class, a first time mom asked me if it was easier the second time around. Bahahahaha… “What? No! Now, you have a toddler to keep up you on your toes when you used to be able to sit back and relax!” There are many differences between my pregnancies as I’ve alluded […]

Caring About My Overall Health and Not Just Appearance

Isn’t it funny how when you are young, you really don’t think about long term consequences, like going to a tanning bed before prom or eating foods that *might* cause heart disease. When I started this blog I admittedly was concerned about 1 thing, looking good in a bathing suit. I’m not sure when I […]

Crowd Sourcing: A Millennial Mom’s Way of Sleep Training

I’ve been crowd sourcing my way through motherhood since I announced I was pregnant. What should I register for? How do I get this baby to come out of my body? I was 9 days late…  Is breastfeeding the most painful thing you’ve ever done? It was mine… We are well into the toddler years […]

Tommy Update 16 months old

I haven’t done a Tommy update since I think he turned 1 and since my blog is his baby book, I’m going to jot down a few fun things. Is Tommy still nursing? Yep. Unfortunately. I had hope going on the cruise would help him wean himself. I did wean him for about 12 hours… He […]

10 Things You Never Realized Before Having A Child

Last Monday, I had a moment. I shared my struggles and you listened. Many bloggers, myself included, begin writing as a way to express ourselves. From issues with food to struggling as a parent, it’s therapeutic. After reading all of your comments, I was glad that I publicly vented. Too many people filter out the bad and […]

Ahhh, so this is what you all were talking about

Mom post here. I’ve got a lot to say and that usually makes for a good post so here goes. There are new struggles that come with raising a toddler. Many of which I rolled my eyes at as a childless young adult. From competitive preschools to screen time and diet, you all of sudden find […]

10 Things That Quickly Changed After The 1st Birthday

If you search, “When does a baby become a toddler,” Google will provide 17,600,000 results. The top result is a joke about how it’s not so much as a defined number but 10 signs that you’ve arrived. Well, today I saw a glimpse into what I thought was my future to only realize that I’m already there. […]

VIDEO: Postpartum Ab Workout, 7-Minutes

It wasn’t easy and I really had to push myself hard to get back my abs postpartum. I hear after your second baby, it’s an entirely different story challenge. I was pretty paranoid about developing diastasis recti, which is essentially when your abdominals separate down the middle. I had strong abs before getting pregnant and continued to […]

Healthy Lunch Ideas For Toddlers

Today’s post is brought to you by my friends from Chobani. Enjoy! I struggle with what to feed Tommy. I admittedly haven’t read many books on the topic and I’m not a Pinterest mom who is going to put blueberries on toothpicks to make eyes on a peanut butter sandwich. Sorry Tommy, you don’t like […]

Mommy Monday: Sleeping Through The Night & Sleep Training Update

On this fine Mommy Monday post, I’m sharing my sleep training story. If you don’t have kids, you probably won’t want to read this post. No worries. I get it. People asked me to share what we did and so that is exactly what this post is. To start, I want to state that I am […]
