This is Three

“There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth”. You guys… having a three year old is BIBLICAL. Today she wailed about wanting to play with friends as we were leaving playing with friends, she wailed about wanting a snack as she finished a snack, the kid knows how to crank up the wailing.   And…

Little Target Miracles

I was pushing my cart along in Target, trying to keep Lucie from licking everything she could reach and dutifully scanning my bread (the #lowcarblife was short lived yet again) for a killer Cartwheel discount when I heard the sound. Had I looked up a millisecond later my eyes would have missed the source of…

Diaper Wipes Demystified

Diaper wipes, man. They seem so simple. Before baby you would probably assume any old thing will work to wipe your sweet bundle of fresh DNA’s bottom. At one point, I made the generalization that a wipe was a wipe was a wipe, how different could they possibly be? I have turned the corner, my…

Home… where our hearts are.

I would like to think that we have a cozy home. The pile of blankets folded next to the couch cries to be cuddled in. Our lack of kitchen storage would lead you to believe we overflowith with enough food to sustain a Himalayan hiking crew. Our guest bed has the softest sheets I could…

Wombs and weepy feelings

It all falls into place…

There are 103 days and a few hours until I am a married woman. Gasp! Quinton and I were engaged for a few days when my mom and aunt started suggesting wedding dates and places. I was standing outside of my new salon, talking to my mom when she suggested a New Years Eve wedding/party….

Only my mom…

My mama has been on a 26 year mission to be a doula. While she has coached countless women through the trials and triumphs of countless hours of labor, labored herself four times (without medication, she will proudly tell you), and mastered every aspect of the woman’s mysterious body it is only in the last…
