Quieting the New Year

By |January 3rd, 2017|Daily Confessional|Comments Off on Quieting the New Year

I have to say, I have a good feeling about this year. I’m not sure why, but my instinct is that there is a lot of good to be had in 2017. I also feel like this is the year I make my life smaller and simpler.

My life goals in the past have come very […]

New Year’s Resolutions 2017

By |December 31st, 2016|Resolutions|3 Comments

If there is one lesson I’ve learned this year it is that I can do hard things.

I can do hard things.

I can do hard things.

All the hard things.

Over the course of this year I re-wrote a book while going through an emotional miscarriage, then through my pregnancy. I gave birth standing up (without an epidural). […]

December 2016 Resolutions

By |December 2nd, 2016|Resolutions|1 Comment

I don’t know about ya’ll but I’m ready for 2016 to be over.

While I’ll always be grateful to this year for my healthy, happy little human, the majority of 2016 was a crapfest (including many of the early days of my momming adventure).

While I prefer not to be political on my blog, I will say […]

November 2016 Resolutions

By |November 1st, 2016|Resolutions|8 Comments

I have to admit, I’m pretty psyched that it’s November. Not for any particular reason, it’s just that I FINALLY feel like I have enough of a grip on the day to day of momming to start blogging again. To start cooking again. To shower on a regular basis. Yes, Ethan is five months old. […]

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 […]
