Leaving your sweet bundle at home or dropping them off at daycare can be heart-wrenching. And that isn’t the only difficult aspect to making your post-baby debut in the office. After each child, I was overwhelmed with the idea of using a breast pump at work.

I enjoy putting together homemade Lunchables, so I can choose higher quality meat, cheese and crackers and also pack some fresh fruit as a side. I also switch up sandwiches by using different breads like tortillas, bagel thins and croissants.
Two precious children have made me a Mama: a three-year-old girl, Cora; and a six-month-old son, Freddy. For several reasons, my time breastfeeding Cora was short-lived, and I never had to breastfeed her outside of our home. Fortunately, the second time’s a charm and my breastfeeding journey with Freddy has been a natural partnership from […]
I’ve never been a stay-at-home mom. When I had my oldest, I was working full-time. I was only able to take six weeks off of work, then started back at my job and I’ve been working 40+ hours a week ever since. I had my second baby in January, I’m fortunate to work for […]
Are there any other moms out there who have gotten to the very end of their pregnancy (I’m one day shy of 40 weeks as I write this) and feel like giving birth is just something you meant to get around to doing, but fell by the wayside? For about two weeks, I’ve been in the […]
My husband and I were both raised in Colorado Springs, and we both have a lot of family members who still live here.

For these reasons, this time of […]

I’m happy to report that I’ve recently entered my third trimester, and can now give a thorough summary. A Pain in My Butt (and Hips and Calves and Feet) Oh, these aching hips of mine. […]
When I was pregnant with my first child, I thought I would be the stereotypical first-time mom: sterilizing everything, hovering over my baby as she played, and being extremely selective about who got to hold her. When my daughter was actually born, I found out that wasn’t the type of mom I am. I wasn’t […]
I know you’re out there. Are you looking for me, too? I hear there are a lot of us these days, but I don’t stumble across many when I’m out in the wild (but I get it, because I spend my evenings at home trying to convince myself not to go to bed earlier than 9:00, […]
I’m officially out of the first trimester of my second pregnancy. I’ve heard every pregnancy is different, both between different women and even different pregnancies in the same woman. I’ve heard it, but I didn’t fully grasp it until this pregnancy. I’ve had a hard time finding anything relateable on the world wide web, so […]
