Toddler Sleep Battles

I thought the sleep wars would be over within the first year of my daughter’s life, but right now, one of my biggest struggles is getting her out of our bed! The girl has taken over completely. She wants to fall asleep in there and stay there. Our bed is even her preferred spot for daytime naps! I never quite expected this with her, because by 6 months, I was bragging that she was […]

Dear Mama, YOU are good enough

Dear Mama, you’re good enough  Our current error of information-overload and social media consumption is fun, informative and life-changing for networking and building relationships, but it can be derailing and distracting at times.

I start subtly measuring myself against other moms who seem to be handling things […]

{WIN}: Play-Doh Kitchen Creations Party

I want to dispel the notion that the kitchen is a space for girls only, by letting my son explore in our kitchen, as well as through his imagination and play. My late great grandparents would probably disagree with me, but I’m on a mission to raise well-rounded and tolerant children. I recently introduced my little man to the Play-Doh Kitchen Creations range, which includes a variety of playsets and […]

Celebrating World Breastfeeding Week with Philips

It’s been 8 months since I stopped breastfeeding my daughter but every other week or so, I tell my friends how much I miss it.
