The day Matheson turned one was bittersweet. On one hand, my baby – the most influential little person I had ever met – was growing up. I was one year older and he was one year closer to being an adult, fully functioning and moving on without me. On the other hand, I had made […]

I have THE biggest couple crush on Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard. I just love them. And WHAT’S NOT TO LOVE?! They’re adorable, hilarious, fun-loving and so in love with each other. Yesterday, Kristen was on Ellen (which I religiously DVR) and, not surprisingly, was just the cutest little thing.

Seth and I are both super social people. I was really lucky to end up with someone who values their friendships as much as I do. And now, as a couple with two under two, we’re really lucky to have the greatest friends – near and far – who are willing to travel and put in extra effort to maintain our […]

Everyone has always warned me there would come a time when my baby boy would become a little tiny man, after which point no space or thing in our home would be remain sacred. That day has come. And I really was not prepared for all the feelings. Yesterday, as I sat in the bathroom tending to […]

Dear pushy breastfeeder, Before you begin to recite all the benefits of breastfeeding, let me save you the time and just say, I know. I know how good it is for me and for my baby. And contrary to your ignorant belief, I wanted to breastfeed both of my sons for a long time. I wanted it so badly I cried […]
