The Changes That Come When You Turn One

My creative side has really been lacking. Sitting down in front of this laptop to write a post has been one of the last things I’ve wanted to do lately. And I’m not sure why I chose this moment to write again. Dishes need to be done, so does the laundry, and the floor could…

Day in the Life as a SAHM

Ever wondered what it’s like being a SAHM (Stay-at-home mom)? I surely cannot speak for all SAHM’s with this post, because I know everyone is different. But I’m going to give you a little insight on what a typical day is like for me as a SAHM, because well… why not? First off, I just…

Finding Time

One of the hardest parts of motherhood is finding time for yourself. This time could mean taking a shower alone, catching up on emails, reading a book, or even enjoying a cup of coffee while it’s still hot. Don’t get me wrong, I cherish every moment I have with Myla. But sometimes I’m like, “Will…

The Reality of Sleep Training

It’s been 3 hours since I put Myla down in her crib, and Scottie and I have both gone to console her at least 6 times. We are in the process of sleep training an almost 10 month old, and let me tell you, this shit is not easy. Recently, we made the decision to…

Wanted: Mom Friends

When we decided to move to Indiana, I knew it would be difficult leaving my friends and family behind. But what I didn’t predict, was how hard it would be to make new friends, especially now that I am a mom. Making new friends in college was so easy for me. I’m not saying I’m…

Postpartum Anxiety

We all struggle. Simple as that. Whether it’s with anxiety, depression, self-doubt, relationships, or even financially, we’ve all been there at some point in our lives. I’m currently at that point. In my teens, I used to struggle hard with depression and anxiety. And I know I am not alone when I say that. With…

A Sad Mommy

I know I focus mainly on the positives in my life. I write about things that make me happy, because I enjoy it. I love to write about being a mother, my experiences, and what I have learned. But I want to keep my blog as real as I can, and that means talking about…

The Honeymoon Phase

You know when you first meet someone, there’s so much excitement and thrill. You feel like you are on a cloud, floating in nothing but bliss. Your emotions are heightened, and nothing, and I mean absolutely nothing, can damper your mood because you are just so freaking happy? This is how I feel when I…

3 Months of Pure Bliss

I can’t believe it’s been over 3 months since my baby girl was born. Where does the time go? No, seriously? The day we brought you home from the hospital literally feels like yesterday. I was so emotional, sitting in the backseat of the Jeep with you, just staring at your perfect existence. I broke…
