These Shoes Were Made for Working

Cue Fergie’s song “Glamorous”. G-L-A-M-O-R-O-U-S, yeah GLAMOROUS. Are you singing along? Bopping your head and humming the tune? Yeah, me too. That is pretty much exactly how I thought my life as a working mother would be–glamorous. In fact, I think it is safe to say, that society may even imply that working moms have […]

The Bittersweet End to the Baby Stage

I’ve heard many times that you’ll know you’re done having kids when you don’t feel a sense of sadness when the “baby stage” passes. While I imagine that is true for a good number of people, I also think there are many of us moms who know we are done growing our family and yet […]

For Step-Moms on Mother’s Day

I have had the fortune (or misfortune depending on how you look at it) of being a full-time working mom, a working mom who’s off during the summer, a single mom, a stay-at-home mom, and a full-time working mom who’s also simultaneously taking a full load of graduate school courses. Just writing all of that […]

“I’m fine. Everything’s fine.”

“I’m fine. Everything’s fine.” Do you often find yourself uttering those four words before someone even finishes asking, “How are you?” Lately, it feels as though those words just spill out, unconsciously, without any true meaning behind them.

Sending Love on Testing Days

Share Your Story – Trigger Miscarriage

One month ago, today, I was told those words no mother ever wants to hear. Unfortunately, 1 out of 4 women hear these words all too often. “Your baby no longer has a heartbeat.” That day changed my family forever. I know I am a different person because of it, my relationship is different because […]

Momma, You are Enough

I birthed my daughter vaginally and I am proud of that. I birthed my son through a cesarean section and I am proud of that. Although, in all honesty, that was not always the case. You see, during the many weeks of “birth plan” research, not once did I come across an article that portrayed […]
