#metoo

As I scrolled through my FB news feed over the weekend, I noticed a very simple post: #metoo. At that point, I had read about the latest sex scandal in the news and was as disgusted as ever, but I didn’t realize #metoo was in response to that. Over the next few hours, more and […]

The Toddler Horror Show

Vampires, ghosts, goblins, werewolves, zombies …all scary, sure.

Mom Tribes After The Baby and Toddler Years

When I first approached the subject of mom tribes I was missing my California life, specifically my life as a mom of babies and toddlers. I was missing the camaraderie that comes from new motherhood, the swapping of baby food recipes and how-to’ s of potty training. I was missing the park meetups, long stroller […]

Fit Mama With or Without a Gym

Early on, our little one decided he wanted nothing to do with the childcare option at our paid neighborhood gym. We tried week after week to get him to like it, only to be called up 20 min into our work out about a fussy, crying baby. Yep, the baby was not happy at the […]
