The Physicality of Motherhood | A Great Contradiction

My entire body hurts tonight. Aches deep down to the bones. I am tired. I am sore. Even my skin hurts. I have just reminded my five-year-old daughter again to please not jump on mommy. Please don’t climb on mommy. And it is in this plea that I am reminded that I was not prepared […]

Coalition Celebrating Black Breastfeeding Week 2016

Giving Honor Where Honor is Due: Thank You, Indiana Black Breastfeeding Coalition

A few months ago I walked into Meijer with my youngest, MJ. She was comfortably nursing in my ring sling and I was focused on my shopping. As I walked toward the carts an older black woman stopped me and asked: “Do you think she should be eating all out like that?” She wasn’t disrespectful […]

Instead of a Baby Book…

Just as many first time-moms, I received a baby book at one of my baby showers.  I had grand plans of tracking all of my son’s milestones in it like my mom did for me.  I absolutely love to look back on the baby book she meticulously kept for me, but when it comes to […]

Why I Don’t Want to Travel for Christmas…Preferably Ever

The holidays are a time to enjoy with family, show appreciation for those you love and maybe sip a holiday eggnog or seven and gift a toy or twelve. There is no holiday I enjoy more than Christmas. Call me a softy, but I have the warm and fuzzies all of December and truly, truly […]

A Love Letter to my Facebook Moms Group

  I used to think “Facebook” and “motherhood” meant flooding my friends’ timelines with pictures of my kids. But as I’ve entered into motherhood, I’ve realized that Facebook is a much more complicated space- sometimes with really surprising benefits.  I have a few friends who have children, but my closest friends – the ones you […]

There Will Never Be an Elf on Our Shelf

Christmas is my favorite holiday, hands down, no competition. I unabashedly start brainstorming wrapping paper color themes in October, and selecting the family Christmas card design takes time and careful thought. I’m trying to convince my husband that we need matching Christmas pajamas, which of course we do not because no one does. What I’m […]

Work Saved My Mental Health

“You’re a machine- everyone was like, ‘she just had a baby- why is she at work?!’ “ That was me. I went back to work two weeks after having my third baby. I know, I know. It was crazy. And “poor me”, right?! Like…who does that. Who goes back TWO WEEKS after having a baby?! […]
