I just read an article on birthing trends and they mentioned doctors are now inserting IUDs in their patients immediately after delivery. I know a lot of moms get IUDs at their six-week postpartum…Continue
I saw a new mom today with her week-old baby, she also had her 4-year-old and they all seemed great! I was impressed. I know I went out soon after both of my kids were born but I don't know if I made…Continue
My 2.5 yo insists I lie down with her every night at bedtime, and I can't get up and sneak out until she's fully asleep or she throws a fit. She shares a room with her big brother and we have a…Continue
My two-year-old is a total runner. She thinks it's so funny to take off running down the street so I have to chase her. Unlike my son, who wouldn't have ever put a pinkie toe into the street, my…Continue
Hi all! I'm a married SAHM with a little boy, who turned 4 on September 24, and a baby girl born February 26, 2014. We live in Seattle. I'm originally from the Midwest, one of six kids (I have no idea how my mother did it!). My husband is one of six too! I think I will be good with two kids :)

Christmas and New Year's are behind us, phew! I enjoy celebrating and being with family, but we all know there's no vacation from being a mom. Over the holidays, my husband is off work, and all of my son's activities are canceled; that should mean more help and less running around for me, right?
