The Lonely Hour

The Lonely Hour

4 am is a very lonely hour. I'm sitting here in the dark, rocking my newly crawling high on life doesn't need sleep baby back to bed for the 4th time tonight. I'm willing myself to stay awake but not too awake, in hopes that I'll be able to quickly fall asleep as soon...

Snot a Problem…

Snot a Problem…

You knew it was bound to happen. That moment where you realize that the thing you had to cover your mouth and make sure you didn't hurl when another mother said they did it has become your own. Enter JL's first cold and the slimy trail he left on all of my shirts and...

No One Wants to Say It…

No One Wants to Say It…

But sometimes pregnancy and motherhood are just like, meh. Don't get me wrong, I love being a mom. This shit is hard though. Starting with pregnancy, everyone talks about how magical it is and acts like you're a monster if you say you're feeling anxious, or...

Judge Me

Judge Me

Judgement. We all do it. We judge the lady on her phone at the park, and the woman with her kids screaming in the aisles at the supermarket. We judge. And to some degree it's normal, and not ultimately terrible - bearing in mind we judge silently. What's got me...

Like a fine wine, your baby needs time age... You know that a good wine should be sniffed, swirled, savored and that's all before the first actual sip! So you're taking your good sweet time letting that wine get into your belly. Now if you're like me- that's all well...

Everyone’s Got Their Something

Kiss Your Lipstick Goodbye

Kiss Your Lipstick Goodbye

M.A.C.'s Blankety lipstick is my go to color. Or it was before I had a baby. Seriously, I bought it in bulk; kept one in the car (melty, bad idea), my office, my purse, you get the idea. But since I had a baby, I go lipstick free- because I kiss my damn baby too much....

Sleep: If That’s What You Can Call It

Sleep: If That’s What You Can Call It

Recently when I wake up in the morning I'm struck by the thought that maybe I'm not tired. My body feels weary and the idea of getting on the treadmill for a quick jog seems like a laughable option to me. I'm barely a human until I've had my coffee, and I spend most...

Make Up with Make-Up

Make Up with Make-Up

What is it about make-up that makes me feel human? Seriously? When I used to go into the office daily it was kind of a guilty pleasure to get dressed up and put on my make up - even just for bare necessities: lipstick and eyeliner. Don't even get me started on night...
