My sister recently had a handsome, probably smart, and incredible baby boy. Since there are two of us with babes in the family, we got to discussing our babies’ birth stories, how they were similar and different, and how things didn’t go exactly as we had planned. She and I are very different. She’s an […]
I met this Badass Mom, Bonnie, when I first arrived to Austin. I could already tell that this empathetic, compassionate, beautiful, talented, and insane woman would be my best friend. While all of these reasons are true, it’s her talent that is the main reason I’m her friend…I’m hoping to mooch off of her success […]
I was having a long, wonderful conversation with my friend, writer of Raw Uncensored Mom , (someone you should totally follow, by the way) about the ridiculously crazy things people think it’s okay to say to a mom.

We just threw her first birthday and it was amazing, tiresome, and […]

This post is an extremely personal, comical, and descriptive account of my attempts at weight loss post-baby. It includes the physical details of what it’s like.
It’s happening. It’s that time of the morning where it really could go either way– the baby could either continue sleeping, thus letting you sleep in the tiniest bit, or she actually gets up, thus you pretend to be asleep until your partner gets up. Almost inevitably, she wakes up. Now, the games have really […]
In certain situations, mothers stand alone against a sea of stupidity. I’m talking unwanted advice, idiotic interrogations, or unnecessary beratements (beration? Beratings?
