Why I stopped blogging

Vulnerability post ahead… I would like to say that I haven’t been posting as much because our household has been sick for the last three weeks, or because I have been busy with school… but that just isn’t the truth. I let myself lose my love for blogging for two reasons: A silly fight with my sister over blogging (which of course our issues run deeper than blogging) I let it all get to my head When I started blogging, my main goal was to help others through my own personal experiences…I…

Be Careful How You Label Your Children

Many of us receive labels that define who we are early on in life. These labels can be given to us by our parents, teachers, coaches, or even our friends. There are good labels: friend, daughter, sister, student, etc… And then there are the not so good labels: short, fat, skinny, dumb, know-it-all, etc..

One of the things I googled the most was other mom’s daily routines with their baby & sleep/feeding schedules. I know every baby is different and every day is different, but it was nice to compare our sleep/feeding schedule to what other moms were doing. I used their schedule as a tool for me to…

Why I “Serve” My Husband

After a somewhat controversial comment I posted in an online stay-at-home mom group I am a part of… I decided to write a post on why I “serve” my husband. This is probably my first controversial blog post, but here we go: One mom decided to write the group and ask what she should do about her husband who was distant, grumpy, not helping around the house, or with the kids anymore. The moms in the group immediately went into attack mode and started tearing the husband to shreds. They were anything but helpful to…
