Oh, you wanna talk about Mothers…

Gather round boys and girls. Today we're gonna talk about something called "Mind your own damn business and nobody gets hurt." When it comes to being a Mom, you learn really quickly who your friends are.. and better yet, who your enemies are. All of a sudden, you become a target for people to aim... Continue Reading →


4 Months

Oliver is 4 months old now! What the heck, man. One moment this kid's lying in my arms, the size of a tiny football... the next he's this butterball who will stare you down with an attitude comparable to Miranda Priestly. I cannot understand or express the incredulous scale that my heart now measures to.... Continue Reading →

Quarter of a year

It only gets better!

So, I'm in my second week back at work now! Let me tell you.. no amount of preparation can actually prepare you for the first time you leave your baby. I had mentally began to prepare myself since maybe the 3rd week home after giving birth. I psyched myself out.. reminding myself that leaving him... Continue Reading →


There was never a point during my pregnancy where I truly felt unattractive. I may have woken up to a horrible skin day or the occasional morning of puking during the first trimester, but I still had some secret little glimmer of confidence inside telling me I was beautiful. Once I had an actual belly... Continue Reading →
