July 25, 2022 To Mama, It take a village to raise little ones. Before becoming a Mama, when I heard this phrase, for some odd reason, I thought it only pertained to the child. Boy, how I was wrong. My village; my family, my husband’s family, friends, this amazing community…you are all part of the […]

May 23, 2022 To Mama, I’d like to say we always had an organized home before our baby girl was born but I’d be lying. It wasn’t always organized and we still had a couple piles here and there but I can honestly say the laundry was done more regularly, meals prepped in advance and […]

May 16, 2022 To Mama, What a weekend. Let’s just say it; never did I think we would see the ER in the first year of our daughter’s life. I hoped to avoid it until she was a teenager playing sports and I guess that was a Mama daydream. To back it up, she fell […]

April 25, 2022 To Mama, We did it. We had our first overnight without baby girl and here’s what we learned about her. She was ready. She had been sleeping through the night with us for a week. She’s slept at my parents before- both naps and they’ve put her to bed while we went […]

April 18, 2022 To Mama, I wonder if it’s just me. I glowed during pregnancy- I felt great, I was healthy, I LOVED being pregnant…so much so that I wondered how I would feel when I was no longer pregnant. And everyone I talked to said not to worry, once I saw our baby girl…that […]

April 11, 2022 To Mama, Our little one said a new word this weekend and oh boy, it was music to my ears! After months of hearing “Dada,” our little one finally said Mama. Over and over and over again. My heart burst out of my chest and I had thee biggest smile, ear to […]

April 4, 2022 To Mama, I always thought I would want to go back to teaching after our baby girl was born. I loved working with kids, loved seeing their lightbulb moment when they understood a challenging concept and felt like I made a difference, day in and day out. Being a teacher was what […]

March 28, 2022 To Mama, Asking for and accepting help is the one of most vulnerable and difficult actions you can engage in; only becoming more difficult as we grow older and we find ourselves weaving in and out of our comfort zones while our roles and responsibilities change and the relationship with ourselves and […]

March 21, 2022 To Mama, You look heavy. Yea, there’s still some baby pounds to shed but that’s a conversation for a different day. Heavy in that the weight of motherhood is on your shoulders and burdening your mind. The longer I am a Mama, the more I realize there’s an unspoken weight to being […]

March 14, 2022 To Mama, We broke the rules this weekend. This weekend we held our little one as she slept instead of encouraging her to sleep in the pack and play while we were away. Why? Well, she had a cold. Sneezing, runny nose, sniffles. Did it stop her from being the adventurer and […]
