Baby Warmie Offers the #1 Diaper Bag on the Market

I had my last baby eight years ago! Feels like a lifetime when I see how far the baby products have come since then. The diaper bag I had was a brown satchel that wasn't just small, it hardly had any storage space. It cost a fortune and almost went through more trauma than I …

Confessions of an Intoxicated Mom in Quarantine

First off, I'd like to say I'm only on my third glass of wine for the night. In normal life, that would be excessive, but in quarantine life, it sounds about right. Let me just say that I, in no way am condoning drinking as a coping mechanism to get through quarantine, because that's not …

It’s Coming: Your Moment in the Sun

I've been moving through phases like the moon. I aspire to be full, only to get caught back in the dark and remerge as New. Not quite whole, I struggle to deal with the demons I can't slay. I continue on course emerging as the crescent, allowing the light in to stay. The hope to …

Forward

The first time I saw this picture of my son, I thought, “Boy, don’t you ever lose your innocence or your will to fight for what you believe in.” This was taken two months ago, and as the days move forward, so does my frame of thought. I’ve become more progressive, more aware, more reflective, …

When the Kids Leave

Ok, so here's the honest to goodness truth, divorce sucks. I know, shocker. The process is horrific, painful and gut-wrenching. Sharing custody of your children can really suck, too.

The Problem with Change

Do you like change or do you hate it? Do you thrive off it or does it paralyze you? Are we meant to stay the same forever, or does learning happen in the process of change, growth and evolution? I think we all know the answer, so why are we all so damn afraid of …

Introducing the BLOG Store

  Well if this isn't a long time coming, I don't know what is! I've had SO MANY requests for a Store on the blog. What I hear most often when I write memes or little quips is, "I'd totally wear that on a shirt!" Well, NOW you CAN! This is coming to you, my …

Motherhood is a Spiritual Experience

I don't care what your faith is, what color you are, what shape you are, or what language you speak. Whether a higher power has always been present in your life, or you believe your destiny is solely based on being a good person who does the right thing to the best of your ability. …

Don’t Tell Me Halloween is Just One Day Out of the Year

If you're a parent, you're hyper-aware that Halloween isn't just one day out of the year. No. We WISH it was, but no. Halloween isn't just a tutu, a mask, or a simple costume, no. It's practically its own goddamn season. Halloween begins at least 4 weeks before October 31st. If you're really festive, maybe …

I Know Why the Seasons Change

  Feeling lost as an adult can be one of the scariest feelings. Pack on motherhood, marriage and all other grown-up responsibilities, and it's all I can do not to crawl back in my mother's womb or beg to be swaddled and rocked. Have you ever felt lost? Or maybe without direction? It's confusing, because as …
