Tales of the Tooth Fairy

Tales of the Tooth Fairy

My daughter, Charlie, lost her 5th tooth a few nights ago following a physical altercation with her little sister.  Not one minute earlier, I had heard my husband shouting, “If you girls don’t stop rough housing with those suckers in your mouths, somebody’s gonna get hurt!”   In the midst of nursing my infant son, […]

I'm Afraid To Get My Photo Taken

I’m Afraid To Get My Photo Taken

I saw an ad for a Mommy & Me mini photo shoot pop up in my newsfeed and my first thought was oh yes, I should totally do this!  And then my second thought was oh, no I can’t.  I’m too fat.  And so instead of booking an appointment, I ate leftover Easter candy. I’m […]

Q&A With A Pelvic Physical Therapist

When I was a new mom, a pelvic physical therapist visited my Mommy-and-Me class one day to educate us on postpartum health and wellness. I was eager to learn more about this topic because I didn’t feel very knowledgeable about it after my very brief 6-week postpartum exam with a nurse practitioner who focused mainly […]

The 7 Steps of Flying with a Baby

This Won't Be My Life One Day

This Won’t Be My Life One Day

As I sat at my computer the other morning, trying to work on my ever-growing to-do list, I kept hearing, “Mom! Mommy! Mom!” It was only 8:23am and if I’m honest, I was already exasperated with all of the interruptions. “Whaaat?!” I finally exclaimed. Silence. I glanced over and what I saw broke my heart […]

The Day My Son Was

The Day My One-Year-Old Electrocuted Himself

My son electrocuted himself and it wasn’t in an outlet.  I had covered all of the outlets meticulously.  The problem was that I hadn’t anticipated my curious fifteen-month-old to stick his hands inside the wall and pull out an electrical wire.  We had just moved into our new condo and I was still trying to […]

Confessions of a Television-aholic

I’m a television-aholic.  Feels good to admit it! Or bad?  Hard to say.  All I know is that when I find a show to binge watch, I can’t stop!  Hence the television-aholic title. The thing is I KNOW people attach bad connotations to watching television.  So, I try not to talk about it too much.  But […]

My McDreamy

Grey’s Anatomy likes to give nicknames to their doctors, McDreamy, McSteamy, McVet etc.  And I’d say that I’ve definitely got myself a McDreamy, for more reasons than one.

Every Mom’s “Extra” Child
