The Grocery Store

I’ve never actually been criticized at the grocery store, but I’ve never been praised either. My husband, on the other hand, gets lots of compliments when he takes our son to the store. I’m sure when our baby gets here and he’s wearing her he’ll get even more comments, because ...

Shopping Time!

My son does this all the time. He’s a picky eater at home, but he’ll try almost anything if it’s being given away as a sample at the grocery store. If he says he likes it, I’ll buy it, because he’s a picky eater. And then when we get home, ...

Padding

My latest for Breastfeeding Mama Talk! Anyone ever try those Milkies things? It looks like a breast pad that collects what you leak so you can use it. I might grab some for this pregnancy. Last time I used disposable pads. I wasn’t a fan. The ones in the hospital ...

Instincts

This is one of my least favorite parenting phrases. Mostly because my instincts suck. But also because it’s the go-to parenting advice when someone has no actual advice but they still want to sound wise. And also because a lot of people will use the “instincts” line as an excuse ...

Happy Thanksgiving and an Announcement

I’m pregnant again! And it is suuuuper different this time around. With my son, I felt queasy at times, and certain things made me feel like I might throw up, but I never actually threw up. And I was always hungry. This baby hates all food and I was sick ...

No. No. Nooooooo!

Lately I feel like I should take a page out of my son’s book and just start saying “no” to everything. “Want to volunteer for…” “No.” “We can only pay in promotion…” “No.” “Here are my idiotic political beliefs…” “No.” That’s it! I’m going into full-on toddler mode, people. No. ...

Mom Weight Loss Routine

It is harder to lose weight after kids, and it makes zero sense. I eat less food than I ever did (because my kid steals it), I think I’m just as or more active, but I still hover in around 5lbs over my pre-baby weight. I know, 5 lbs more ...
