We need a curriculum! 🥴 or do we?
Where have I beennnn? Honestly, I had too much on my plate so I took this blog off of it. I took a break from a lot of things. But, today I felt like sharing. So here I am. Next week is august! Last year I was so prepared and picked a homeschool curriculum. This…
Cloth diapering update?
So, I’ve been cloth diapering Viv basically her whole life. She’s 19 months old. How’s it going? I have zero regrets. Im so happy for the money saved and honestly the cuteness of the diapers have brought me a lot of joy during low points. And the washing and storing, etc? Basically it’s like second…
More quarantine activities
Alright guys, doesn’t seem like this “safe at home” stuff is ending anytime soon. So I thought I’d share the homeschool activities me and LB have been doing! (I can’t take credit for many of these. His preschool teacher sends ideas to us weekly and we try them out). A lot of our makeshift art…
The truth about motherhood
Why don’t we tell future moms the truth about motherhood? I mean we may tell them you don’t get a lot of sleep at first, or that breastfeeding is hard, or that contractions hurt. But we don’t tell them the whole truth. Why don’t doctors/lactation consultants/breastfeeding classes tell you nursing can hurt at first –…
New Years resolutions!
Do you set New Years resolutions? I do. Many of them I keep (it was 4 years ago I decided to start working out. Look at me now 👌🏾). And some, I don’t. Like I made a resolution last year to dress nicer and I still wear yoga pants 92% of the time. This year…
2019 MU Half Marathon – I did it! I ran the race in 2:15!
I did it. I ran my race. That’s why I’ve been spotty with blogging and posting, and a big part of the reason I wasn’t coaching the past few months. First I want to go over the race weekend, then how it differed from last year, then how I trained. Soooo race weekend. The race…
Baby Registry Essentials
Hey yal! Earlier this week on my instastories I asked what you guys wanted to hear more about. This request was one I thought would go better as a blog – so I could refer back to it since this question comes up a lot. Also…. for me if we ever decide to have another…
You use breastmilk for WHAT?
Even though nursing is crazy hard at first and takes up a ton of time (I’m 20 mins into a nursing session as I type) it has a ton of perks. On top of being convenient and honestly having a nutritional content that formula hasn’t been able to match, there are other uses for your…
I hated school because I never wanted to take work home.
Writing about my anxiety helps me make light of daily stresses and feel more grateful. I was a little hesitant to publish this one, but here goes nothing: Picture it: Huntington 2011 (i love golden girls 😂). One of my first thoughts when i decided to hustle up some summer classes and finish my BS…
Key tricks for surviving postpartum with LB
Having 2 kids is harder than having 1. Especially when one is an infant. Here are some things that have made life easier for me with LB since I’ve had Vivian:
