It is hard to believe that our baby girl will be turning one this February. We have a lot to celebrate; a whole year of blessings and a year of us surviving as parents to two kids. I’ve thrown five birthday parties for our five year old son and his first birthday was insanely large so […]

Don't. Call. Me. Cute.

Don’t. call. me. cute.

I’m walking down the hallway of my high school, attempting to navigate the crowd when an extremely tall girl pats me on the head like a puppy.  I realize I am pretty short, 5’2″ isn’t exactly the size of a basketball player, but I also believe it’s taller than most children.  The pat was a […]

The Day My Boob Was Hanging Out

When I first starting nursing my son I was extremely aware that my actual boob was exposed.  I generally tend not to expose my breasts, generally *wink wink.*   In any event, as things became more and more second nature I became less and less worried about nursing in public or around others.  I always […]

You’re Not Crazy – You Are a New Mom

I don’t know about you but in my first few months postpartum I did not feel like myself, in fact, I felt downright crazy! As a cognitive therapist, I help others avoid anxious, negative, and judgmental thoughts. I pride myself on being a good example of this for my clients. However, as a new mother, […]

Did CaveMoms Have It Better?

I often wonder if CaveMoms (yes I made that term up) had it better.  Or maybe the correct term is easier.  Aside from the obvious not having any modern medicine to rely upon and the occasional wild beast storming the camp, did they have less worries? Sometimes I find myself spinning in a world of […]
