January 23, 2023 To Mama, For a moment, I was mad at my body. I had my maternity clothes from my first pregnancy thrown on the bed and I was in the process of figuring out what fit , comfortably and flattering and boy was I frustrated. I was 180lbs when I gave birth to […]

January 9, 2023 To Mama, Let me paint the scene for you… It’s Thursday at 8:30am, I’ve had 3 sips of coffee- Our little one is very loudly playing peek a boo with the long curtain in our kitchen. Our dog is waiting to go on a walk and is sitting on my feet. My […]

January 2, 2023 To Mama, 2023. The start of a new year and the biggest catchphrase of any new year is “new year, new me”. I’ve caught myself saying it this year and in years past, and it is usually followed by a couple resolutions I’d like to engage in and practice on this journey […]

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 […]
