Part II: A good old-fashioned birth story 😉 We may be on the tail end of James's first year earth side but here I am, still trying to document his birth. This is what happens when you throw a newborn into the mix with a 3 and a 5 year old and then the earth … Continue reading Managing Expectations: Third Time is (Not) a Charm, Part II
Managing Expectations: Third Time is (not) a Charm
I've never understood the phenomenon of people losing their filters around pregnant women. For some unknown reason, total strangers find it completely appropriate to comment on your looks, share horror stories (for the love, why can't we share something that's not entirely terror inducing?!), or ask questions that require answers that should seemingly be kept … Continue reading Managing Expectations: Third Time is (not) a Charm

It seems like the more pregnant you get, the more you find yourself mourning the 'loss' of something, whether it be your current family routine, your personal time, hobbies you enjoy and you know will be tough to find time for, your ankles, or even the ability to bend over and tie your shoes without asking for … Continue reading Saying Goodbye & Awaiting Hello
