Disclaimer: I’m well aware that the majority of TKC readers couldn’t give two hoots about the state of my nipples and the methods in which I extract milk from them. This post is aimed more at the new mama searching the Internet in hopes of figuring out which pumping accessories are worth their hard-earned dollars. […]
Like any job, there are positives and negatives to being self-employed. Maternity leave is both. The positive is that I can choose to take as long a leave as I’d like. The negative is that we’re a one-income household for however long that is. I decided while I was pregnant that I would give myself […]
I’m a little late writing out my resolutions, but that’s how I roll these days…late.
I can’t say that I was the world exploring, regular meal eating, functional human I’d set out to be in July, but as the month progressed I got better at it. Every half-hour outing to a local café for a latte […]
First of all let me give a huge shout out to all the mommy bloggers out there who somehow find time to write about their lives, take beautiful photographs, eat meals that are made of real food and wear clothes that look quasi presentable. I’m so not there yet.

I have no particular reason to love March, but I do. It means spring is upon us and as much as I’ve appreciated the mild winter we’ve had (at least in NYC) I’m ready to waddle around NYC in dresses—they’re a bit more comfy on my ever-expanding body.
Have I mentioned that I’m huge? I’m […]
I promise that my blog won’t turn into a “let me talk about being knocked up 100% of the time” diatribe, but being pregnant is probably the most interesting thing going on in my life these days and there are somethings I’ve been thinking about for a while now: No one tells you about the […]
Happy New Year!!!
If I had to pick any one holiday to be my favorite holiday it would be New Year’s Day. There’s a lot of pressure on New Year’s Eve to have a date, look stunning, and have somewhere cool to go, but New Year’s Day is pure fresh start. I love a fresh start […]
