Today my youngest got to spend the day with me, he started running a low grade fever last night and acted like he didn’t feel very good. I decided that is was best to keep him home from daycare so that he could get some extra rest while I monitored his fever. It was nice being able to spend some one on one time with my baby. We enjoyed the extra snuggles and cuddles, we watched a few of his favorite shows on TV, and spent some time …Continue

Being a mother is the most challenging, and rewarding, experience of my life. You have taught me what it means to be unconditionally loved, how to unconditionally love another, to want something better for someone else than what I want for myself, and helped me understand who I am in ways I don’t know that I would have ever…Continue

I moved from Texas to North Carolina, when my daughter was almost 5 months old. It took us about a month to get settled into our new home. After we got settle it was time to begin determining what the next step was to correct my daughter’s hearing loss. Being new to the area, I found that it was difficult to find providers who specialized in advanced hearing loss, especially, since we were living in a small town. The closest specialists who were able to deal with my daughter’s…Continue

Once I received news that my daughter failed her repeat newborn hearing screening, we were quickly referred to the local children’s hospital and to an ear, nose, and throat (ENT) doctor for further evaluation. Things moved fairly quickly and my daughter was scheduled to have another type of hearing test to determine how much hearing loss she had so that they could determine what course of action that we needed to take. The next hearing test was more extensive and my daughter had to…Continue

A few weeks ago, I decided that it was time to let my son pick out a potty seat. We choose to get a potty seat that easily fits on the regular toilet, so that I wouldn’t have to retrain him to use the big potty once he had potty training down. Besides that the daycare he attends also uses a potty seat…Continue

I am 95% sure it is Kinsley's life mission to make me lose my shit and sanity in public.There is even a look in her eyes that says "come on mama. do it. do it. do it."
I've never felt like I was failing as a parent until this weekend when there was absolutely nothing I could do to make Kinsley listen to me. She had her own to-do list, her own set of plans, and her own way of doing things. I was ready to throw in the towel by noon.
If there was an attitude to be had about…

Once I found out the estimated due date, I signed up for an account so that I could keep up with my baby’s weekly development. At the time I had an iPhone, so I downloaded the baby center application called “My Pregnancy Today”.

When I became pregnant, one of the things I looked forward to was repairing the relationship I had with my breasts. I've never been a fan of them. They are too small for my frame, the right one even smaller. PB likes 'em just fine, but I would trade them out for another pair in a second. I know it's silly, not to like parts of my body for the way they "look", but I'm a woman and we are taught that this hate has a sense of normalcy.
I thought that would change once I had my baby and I…Continue

When I was 18 years old, I would hop into a sleek black private car around 11 pm every night. I’d wave my cigarette magically in the air and ask to be taken to the Soho Grande. The driver would speed off into the dark, bustling night of New York City. Slumped down in the grey leather seat, I’d peer out over the side, so just my eyes were visible through the window. Bright flashing lights everywhere, blurring the images of the young college student’s advertising of the…Continue

Summer, my daughter, woke up early without any fuss. She can’t wait to wear her new dress from Pretty Ovo. She had been wanting to wear that the whole week. When we got to her school, she was even more excited because the usual austere classroom was now full of colorful Christmas decors,…Continue
