dear husband…i know the car is a mess

Dear Husband, Yes, I am aware the van is a mess. Nearly every time you get in on the weekend you make a comment about the papers everywhere, or the crumbs embedded in the carpet. It’s not that I haven’t noticed, or even that I don’t care- I do. I care that you take the …

birthday party woes

My oldest is turning 5 this month and all I can say is fuck. I miss the days when we would play hooky and do a fun family activity like a trip to the aquarium or something indoors, because the poor kid was born in January. We’d grab a pizza or something easy on the …

how I do it

In 2012 when our oldest was born in addition to becoming a parent for the first time, I started a journey that honestly before he was born I never had any interest in- breastfeeding/pumping. I am currently 7 months into the tail end of this journey and figured it was time to put together a …

a letter to my tribe

To my tribe, I love you for many reasons. Whether we’ve been friends since 7th grade or a year, your roll in my life and my families is so extremely important. You juggle so many hats and serve as such an important role in our family dynamic. My friend and confidant. The first role you …

humbling holiday moment

Twice every day I grab my pumping supplies and trek over to the children’s hospital (just across the street via the catwalk). I honestly try not to think too much about where I am or who occupies the space that I am using, I just go there, pump and leave. Occasionally I’ll bring a bag …
