Women that Abuse

Greetings! I want to quickly blog about some social issues regarding interpersonal relationship violence and how we perceive it if the gender roles are reversed. I was recently watching 90 Day Fiancé–it’s a guilty pleasure of mine. I am aware of the horrible examples of relationships that it portrays and no, I do not let the… Continue reading Women that Abuse

Mommy to an Infant: I Almost Forgot How!!

Greetings! I have been so pleased lately to find other moms blogging and pleased to know that I am not alone. I have a 7 and a 6 year old-parenting is not new-but now that I have the baby it’s like I’m a renewed mommy. I returned six weeks postpartum with Annabelle and Russell. They… Continue reading Mommy to an Infant: I Almost Forgot How!!

Breastfeeding Tribulations: Thrush, Latching, Positioning, and Gas

Greetings! I want to share my experiences: good, bad, ugly, and beautiful. “Another breastfeeding story?” you ask. Yes! I think it’s important to share our experiences with one another. We can relate and we can learn. I spent countless hours worrying–even after I went to a lactation consultant and a doctor. In the end, the… Continue reading Breastfeeding Tribulations: Thrush, Latching, Positioning, and Gas

They have so much to… Continue reading Kidsville, Snotty Noses, and Historic New Bern

High Risk Pregnancies and Juggling Life

What a week I’ve had! I visited the ER for some pregnancy complications and have been feeling a bit under the weather. I had no idea how rough gestational diabetes (GD) could be– and I am ashamed honestly. Life  happens, stress happens, and depression/anxiety can mutate our bodies and minds into something they are not.… Continue reading High Risk Pregnancies and Juggling Life

We Don’t Do Traditional Birthdays

My baby turns 6 tomorrow! I tried to throw him a party that was supposed to take place tomorrow– huge bounce house and food/cake as well.  Since I do like 50 things at once and I am always busy I planned it on the same weekend as Easter (which I also don’t celebrate) and as… Continue reading We Don’t Do Traditional Birthdays

Adding a New Parent to the Mix

I always thought that I’d be single forever after my disastrous divorce. I am very picky about who I let around the kids– let alone who I consider a co-parent. I think it’s something that all parents fear. People are “crazy” and we end up finding out their bad sides when it’s too late economically… Continue reading Adding a New Parent to the Mix
