Planning a Baby Sprinkle

The Ridiculous List of Things I Still Haven’t Done in Preparation for Baby # 2

Days Off: Before and After Motherhood

I often fondly reminisce about what my days off used to be like. I use past tense because after becoming a mom I don't actually get a "day off", it doesn't exist. More »

Are You There Vagina? It’s Me…

(Warning: Semi graphic, possibly hilarious, slightly embarrassing, definitely sad content) Are you there vagina? It's me...It wasn't that long ago that I vowed I would never put you under this stress again. More »

Tick Tock: A Discussion about Marriage and Motherhood

10 Life Lessons From My Newborn Son

"Becoming a mother changed my life..."  It's a phrase you hear often but never quite pay attention to or understand until it happens to you. There is no way to completely express the More »

You Probably Don’t Suck as a Mom

Planning a Baby Sprinkle

IMG_1280.PNG
Having a second child, especially close in age comes with its own array of questions and concerns. One of which is whether or not to have another baby shower. You want to be able to share this joyous moment with friends and family but you also don't want to run the risk factor of being looked at as greedy or you genuinely don't need as much as you did the first time around. Baby "sprinkles" have become a great way of welcoming a new addition to the family without being over the top. Instead of the ...

The Ridiculous List of Things I Still Haven’t Done in Preparation for Baby # 2

Third Trimester
I'm due in 7 days. Perhaps subconsciously I'm expecting to have to be induced again like the first go round. Maybe I'm just continuing the pattern of being ridiculously delayed with this pregnancy, like confirming it at 16 weeks! Maybe I'm just completely delusional and haven't really realized that I'm carrying a bowling ball underneath my shirt. I mean after all I'm still traveling to and from work on the NYC subway well aware that I could flood the entire seat with my gush of goo water and ...

Days Off: Before and After Motherhood

Mom Days Off
I often fondly reminisce about what my days off used to be like. I use past tense because after becoming a mom I don't actually get a "day off", it doesn't exist. If I knew then what I know now I probably would've appreciated them more, and done more with my free time. But of course that's a saying for a reason, because you never could've known then what you know now and so I'm just left with the memories of days that's seem so long gone I'm not even sure if I'm actually remembering them or just ...

Are You There Vagina? It’s Me…

pregnancy symptoms down there
(Warning: Semi graphic, possibly hilarious, slightly embarrassing, definitely sad content) Are you there vagina? It's me...It wasn't that long ago that I vowed I would never put you under this stress again. I was so grateful that you had been able to get back to normal even though it took an entire year for that to happen. But now look what I've done, I've again subjected you to the horrors we both experienced for the first time just over a year and a half ago. I know you hate me, can you ever ...

Tick Tock: A Discussion about Marriage and Motherhood

IMG_0933.JPG
After reading former Bad Girl Tanisha Thomas' Instagram post I couldn't help but think about how many of my close friends could relate. In our early 30s it seems like everyone has been hit with the baby bug. That time you hear about on TV when a woman's biological clock starts ticking and she's suddenly inundated with maternal feelings and begins to long for a family. In this day and age despite what Teen Mom may be showing these past few weeks with their alums pregnant for a second time, women ...

Oops I Did It Again!

IMG_0919-0.JPG
Don't judge me...here goes. I'm pregnant....again. I'm not completely sure how this happened. Well I mean I know how it happened but I guess I just didn't expect it to happen so soon. I had a really long cycle in June. Like really long! Freakishly, how are you still alive long. 18 days long to be exact, then none in July, then something in August then slight spotting in September. But I knew. I mean I'd done this before just over a year ago. I recognized the intense sense of smell, and ...

Where I’ve Been Where I’m Going: Update

im-back
So, where I've been... I've been seriously neglecting this site. Not for lack of caring but just because adjusting to this world of working mom has proven to be quite challenging. My Superwoman cape that I once wore proudly as I sometimes leapt from full-time classes to full-time work to full-time girlfriend, has long been crumpled in a corner and covered with dust. Nowadays I'm exhausted, mentally and physically from just trying to work all day and produce results (I'm a sales manager) and somehow ...

Finding Mommy Balance

Witsend2
I get it, after all the years of being on the outside looking in and wondering what was the big deal when I would hear mothers complain of their busy schedules and tasks to complete, I get it! I'm always on the move, always going. My feet always hurt, my back aches and I'm dizzied with the day to day. As a first time mom to an almost 1yr old, I'm happy about how I've navigated through those new mom moments (with the help of friends) and I'm even happier that through that navigation I've learned ...

10 Life Lessons From My Newborn Son

LifeLessons
"Becoming a mother changed my life..."  It's a phrase you hear often but never quite pay attention to or understand until it happens to you. There is no way to completely express the profound way in which creating, carrying and birthing life changes you. It's a defining moment for many women. Your perspective on the world changes, your life truly changes. Things that were important aren't, things that weren't suddenly are. You find that this complicated existence you lived up until this point is ...

Happy New Year! (kind of) Blog Goals for 2014

Happy New Year! Hey better late than never right? I've seriously been MIA! Though I have been making my rounds on some of my social networks like Twitter and Instagram I have neglected the very most important aspect of blogging...my blog! I have realized in my short time blogging just how intense of a process it is. Creating meaningful content takes time, time that as a new mom with a full-time retail job, I have found is hard to come by. The ever elusive balancing act that all mothers are constantly ...
