The Business Side of Infant Loss :: A Thank You to My Husband
Together we held our son, who was still born, in the middle of the night. You helplessly watched your daughter take her last breath on my warm bare chest. You were always calm, collected and stoic, although grieving in your own man way. As my world fell apart somehow you did not; I’m in awe of that each and every single day.
Fall Wardrobe Capsule :: Simplify Your Closet
It’s the end of August and I am ready for all things fall related. Pumpkin spice lattes, corn mazes, apple orchards and everything that fall brings! This is my favorite time of the year and I wish it lasted longer than a few short weeks. Fall also brings out the busy-ness in our schedules. Kids are going back to school, sports are starting up, and it seems like we are running around non stop!
I Didn’t Get It (A New Mom’s Confession)
Two months ago, I became a mother. It has, without question, become the defining moment of my life. In the years before motherhood, I was open about not being ready for children, confessing honestly and often that I enjoyed my freedom, proud that I was self-aware enough to recognize my selfishness with my time, space, and frankly, my life. Baby showers weren’t my thing. I openly disliked them. Getting excited about diapers? No thanks. What is a Nose Frieda? Who cares. I had no interest in being thrown up on or sucking the snot from a stranger’s nose.
The ULTIMATE List of Fun Date Night Ideas
Once you have kids it seems like date nights are few and far between, especially when you have young kiddos at home (and lets be honest, date nights are usually VERY needed). It’s like I blinked and months went by without my husband and I going out without our son. I found myself wondering how the heck that happened!?
Don’t Hate Me :: 5 Toys I Refuse to Buy My Kids
Many moms have seemingly weird, arbitrary rules around toys in their houses. Some don’t like things that require batteries. Other moms insist toys be educational. There are parents only want toys made out of natural, non-toxic materials that are sustainable and beautiful. I’m not judging y’all, really I’m not. But due to various reasons, there are a few toys I absolutely refuse to buy my kids. I wouldn’t throw these things out immediately if someone else bought them for my kids, but I might slowly shuffle them out until there were no more in existence.
