Christmas Morning

Christmas Hits

Another Christmas is over and now it’s time to see how well Santa did with the present choices. Gifts are my love language so I like to think I’m pretty good at gauging what gifts my kids will like. I spend a lot of time during the year saving ideas for their birthdays and Christmas. […]

Postpartum Body Image, the Second Time Around

One of the moments that sticks out to me, after I had M, was when I was getting dressed to go get my staples out. It was my first time putting on real clothes to leave the house, having lived in a nursing tank and pyjama pants for about four days. I was very swollen, still, […]


Saying Goodbye to the Binky

We did it! We have about a month left until Jackson’s third birthday, and I can officially say that we are a pacifier-free home. My goal was to get it done before he turned three, so I’m really thrilled to be done with the whole ordeal. I really had no idea what to expect when […]

We were thrilled because as the youngest in his cohort (he has an August birthday; the others in his class turned two-years-old in April-July), he missed his friends and desperately wanted to move up as he waited for a space to […]

Everything You Need to Know about Chemical Pregnancy

A week ago I took a pregnancy test around 6:00 AM, when my whole house was quiet, and to my great shock, I saw two pink lines. I woke up Mr. Cotton Candy to tell him the news, and then it was on with our day…we had a ton of cleaning and organizing to do […]
