My Thoughts of Today.

  I’ll be honest I struggle with this on a daily. So many nights after Nora goes to sleep and the day has come to an end. I feel defeated. The phrase, ‘the cleaning can wait, your baby won’t last’ literally haunts my mind. Did I spend enough time with her? Instead of doing the…

It’s Time To Come Clean.

Have you heard of Seventh Generation’s newest #ComeClean campaign? A few months ago I posted here about the lovely Maya Rudolph’s newest commercial supporting Seventh Generation and while it was a cute giggle, in all seriousness, it’s time for us to start standing up to companies and learning our rights as consumers. We have a…

8 Too Soon. 

I didn’t give birth to you but you still have a piece of me. I helped raise you. Took care of you when you were sick, kissed your booboos, and witnessed many of your firsts in life. No, I didn’t carry you in my stomach, however, I carry you in a special place in my…

Grocery Gremlin. 

Can someone explain to me how to get through a grocery store with children without going completely crazy?  Let me set the scene for you… I go grocery shopping once maybe twice a month. And I couldn’t go home after work today without getting stuff. And even though I was starving (because I ran out…

Baby Girl. 

Where do I start? My baby is no longer an infant. I have a toddler. I’m not sure where the time went or how my little girls feet now pass and outgrow her carrier. In the blink of an eye she started to crawl and stand up and has her own little personality with looks…

Summer Bucketlist! 

Wow, where did the summer go?! I feel like summer’s had me like a crazy mom running around in sunglasses because my makeup sweats off and living off of multiple cups of coffee and soda (terrible I know, but momma needs that caffeine)! While every summer is always busy for us because it’s peak time for…

Let Them Be. 

Let me start by saying that since Nora was born she’s always slept in our room. As a newborn she was a great sleeper in her bassinet. I would have to wake her up to feed her (which I believe has lead me to the spot I’m in now, but that’s a different story).  Once she…

Niagara Falls. 

Our family takes a good amount of vacations. I’ve been traveling since I’ve been a tot, actually. However, this trip was special. It was our first trip as a family with our little girl in tote. Last year I asked Clarke if he could do anything or see anything in the world what would he…

Patience is a Mother. 

I got this bracelet years ago and it’s more than a bracelet to me. It is my daily reminder in life to wait. It’s always been a hard thing for me to do, even as a child. I don’t like to wait. I sometimes get irritable and whine. It drives my husband crazy, I’m sure….

Vajingle.

  Oh, goodness, have you seen the latest Seventh Generation “Vajingle” video? If not, it is a must watch! But in all seriousness, I never really thought about there being chemicals inside of pads and tampons. Did you? It’s kind of baffling to me, I mean why do it? Plus, most companies don’t even disclose…

What’s (really) In My Diaper Bag.

Ok let’s be honest here, since having Nora I don’t have a purse. My diaper bag IS my purse. And a messy one at that. Right now I’m rocking the Skip Hop Duo Signature Diaper Bag in Chevron. I’m slightly obsessed with chevron so when I saw this one it was a no brainer that…
