Here’s a true look at what life is like with an au pair. We host an au pair to help with our two children: 2.5 years old and five months. At first, I thought hosting an au pair was overkill. I mean, I grew up with five sisters. My mom did everything. Here I am […]
To any woman who has experienced a miscarriage: you are not alone. You have support. This is not your fault. You should be allowed to feel what you feel, and that feeling should not be shame.
So, we’re pregnant! We’re having another girl! Emmie is so freaking excited to be a big sister…we think…she actually doesn’t really seem to get it, so we’re projecting excitement onto her. We just found out we’ll be having another daughter. We could not be more excited. Let me repeat: we could not be more excited. […]
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 […]

Here’s I’m a Horrible Mom, jumping on the bandwagon and talking about what’s heavy in the news. You know what, though? It needs to be talked about. When I was in school, I had a friend who disclosed to us that she had had sex with her boyfriend. One time. This was not super rare– a […]
The beauty of belonging to a mom’s group or having friends who are moms is that they feel your pain. Oh, you can’t go out for brunch like y’all had planned because your little angel is throwing a tantrum, pooped all over themselves, and needs a bath? No worries, Ma. I got you covered. We’ll […]
Recently, my sister purchased a bear onesie for my daughter. When I say a bear onesie, I mean she becomes a bear. I didn’t know I had the ability to feel such unadulterated elation. Before I had a child, I always said, “I will never dress her in real clothes. I will put her in […]
