#BodyAfterBaby and Why the gym is my new favorite place

One of the best things I've done since becoming a stay at home mom is join a gym with child care. I've never had quite such great incentive to go work out. No time for yourself? Kid driving you crazy and you need to recharge? Maybe all you really want is a hot shower? Go … Continue reading #BodyAfterBaby and Why the gym is my new favorite place

Learning to stop and play

As a busy mom, I'm always trying to do a million things. Laundry, wash the dog, feed the kid, shower, maybe even attempt to exercise. My son is also trying to do a million things. Create more laundry, harass the dog, feed his teddy bear, get dirty and also, get me to play with him. … Continue reading Learning to stop and play

It’s So Hard, To Say Goodbye, To Yesterday…

Especially when yesterday your toddler took a 3 hour nap! I hate to say this, but I think nap time is coming to an end. I've been dreading this day and it's hard to accept. Our first year so tough. So tough. We took baby nighttime shifts and slept in the guest room so the … Continue reading It’s So Hard, To Say Goodbye, To Yesterday…

I Don’t Know How to Not Work

I'm currently in the process of closing my business I've run for the past 11 years. I grew it from a little kitchen table eBay enterprise to a real brick and mortar boutique.

It’s all about the activities

Since I don't intend on just sitting around the house, I am on the hunt for activities for my son and I to do now that he is home with me. There's always the scramble to get the house/work/life stuff done, but I don't want him sitting around watching me try to get things done. … Continue reading It’s all about the activities

Diary of a SAHM – Day…I already lost count

If you are going to start the stay at home mom thing, I really recommend doing it around the holidays. There's so much going on and family visiting, and visits to family, that you don't even realize you're deep in the SAHM trenches just yet. You have people around. I imagine weeks from now things … Continue reading Diary of a SAHM – Day…I already lost count

Diary of a SAHM – Day 3

I think my son is on a hunger strike. He doesn't seem to like anything except grapes and oranges. Maybe he's gone fruitarian? I tried to bribe him with cheese puffs just to get something else in him and he crushed them in his baby hands like a tiny Hulk and threw them at the … Continue reading Diary of a SAHM – Day 3

Diary of a SAHM: A Descent into Momness

I was going to create an entire new blog siteĀ for this but then considered, just how many blogs can I create and then ignore? Might as well put them all together! My new section, instead of the previous "Mama Blog" category, will be The SAHM Diary. I chronicled my IVF and pregnancy to keep my … Continue reading Diary of a SAHM: A Descent into Momness
