On Life

In recent days, we have been inundated with photos, images, interviews, Tweets, Instagram photos, Stories, Facebook posts, news videos and every other form of media illustrating the horrific situation unfolding on the southwestern border of the United States. Rightly so. We have been immersed in our country's most explicitly devastating policy against human rights within its own borders in...
Our New Year wishes: that body positive movement & connection, that euphoric feeling from doing something you love — that is what we hope for you.
I love a new year! There's something so invigorating about starting fresh -- a clean slate for a new you, or in my case, the same you. Long gone are the days where I would set a goal to lose a certain amount of weight or start a new diet or join a new gym. Three years ago, I...
Mamas, the end is near.  I have been either nursing or pregnant since 2007.  (Actually, that should be our new slogan here: "NURSING OR PREGNANT SINCE 2007!") But Pax is now over two.  And while he's not weaned juuuust yet...the reality is that his nursing is pretty sporadic.  I recognize the signs, Mamas.  They've been here for a while.  I'll be...

Cheap Clothes High Price

I love a good deal. In fact, I almost never leave Target without some cheap, adorable little scarf I'll wear maybe twice or three times, or a tee for one of the boys, which will inevitably be too pilled or stained beyond handing down. And, shame on me, I almost never look at the made-in labels anymore, so...
I'm up.  Again.  Baby Man just hit a growth spurt, and with a saucy four-year-old and an obstinate 2-1/2-year-old, I'm pretty much tapped this time of "day."  Mama needs more milk, and fast!  I've taken straight fenugreek supplements and teas before, with little notable success (I had to resort to power pumping), so I was skeptical when a Whole...
“Have you tried peas?” people would say. “My son just LOVES apples.”. I think people can’t help themselves. I mean seriously - when I say the kid won’t eat ANYTHING, do they really think I haven’t tried peas or apples? Like I’m suddenly going to say, “OMG - PEAS!! I didn’t even THINK of PEAS!”

Our Sexy Tips on Rookie Moms

Rookie Moms asked us to guest post on easy ways to make moms feel sexy...just in time for Valentine's Day!   When the topic of sex (or sexy) comes up, I always find it helpful to chat with my husband.  Not only does he always have an opinion on this topic, but it is usually something very simple and to the...
Before I even thought of getting pregnant, I had many fears associated with becoming a mother. I was afraid of what becoming a mother would do to me. I was afraid of what it would do to my marriage. I was, in general, very uncertain before starting such a quest. So I then thought through *all* scenarios and...

Weekend 3.14

Well...hello. It feels like our world has turned upside down in the last 24-48 hours. A few days ago we were happily skiing in Vermont, and now Mike has been working nonstop on COVID-19 simulations (grim stuff), we're all obsessively texting each other articles on the latest findings, the kids' school is closed for at least two...
"I never want to be an adult!" my Big Feels 8-year-old announced & promptly burst into tears, 2 pages into reading Celebrate Your Body.
"I never want to be an adult!" my Big Feels 8-year-old announced, and promptly burst into tears, two pages into reading Celebrate Your Body by Sonya Renee Taylor aloud with me, a book about puberty for girls and those who identify as such. "There goes my Mother of the Year trophy," I thought to myself as I sought to console...
