October 2016 Resolutions

By |October 4th, 2016|Resolutions|2 Comments


Wait. Where did summer go? In typical New York fashion we did not transition gently into fall, it was 90 degrees and then all of a sudden it was 60. I’m convinced that we’ll be covered in snow within a week.

October is bound to be a tricky month for me, as I have quite a few professional […]

Coming Clean about my Plus Sized Postpartum Body

By |September 6th, 2016|breastfeeding, Daily Confessional|7 Comments

I have to admit that while I was pregnant I had this sort of dream sequence in which I could breastfeed myself down to my ideal body weight all while bonding with my beautiful little boy. Afterall, breastfeeding burns calories, right?

Uhhh, sure, I guess. The reality is that I sit on the couch all day […]

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. […]

Wistful about working

By |August 12th, 2016|Daily Confessional, Momming|1 Comment

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 […]

August Resolutions – We’re getting better at this!

By |August 2nd, 2016|Resolutions|5 Comments

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 […]

July Resolutions: Small Steps toward regaining human status

By |July 1st, 2016|Resolutions|18 Comments

Hello July.

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.

New parentdom is totally kicking my […]

Welcome to the World, Ethan Dean!

By |June 20th, 2016|Little Fella|22 Comments

This post has been two weeks in the making. I haven’t had all that much time to write (and when I have I’ve mostly used it for sleep), so I’ve stolen a few moments here and there to cobble together our birth story.

Before I was pregnant I loved a good birth story blog. Then I […]

May 2016 Resolutions

Ya’ll I could totally have a baby this month.

I probably won’t. My due date is the first week of June, but it’s possible.

The (Big) Fella and I are pretty much set in regard to baby prep. We’ve got The Little Fella’s crib built, stroller ready, and his changing table full of diapers and freshly laundered clothes. […]

March 2016 Resolutions

By |March 1st, 2016|Resolutions|2 Comments

Happy March!
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 […]
