So this week I had to call 911 for the first time in my existence as a mother. Don’t worry, everyone is alive and well and it wasn’t the most terrifying of emergencies, but it did make me sweat a few buckets. Girlfriend thought it would be amusing to lock her and brother in the… Continue reading Crazy Shit Kids Do
I gave birth to a fierce tiny human. Actually, she was pretty fierce in utero, but she most definitely entered the world ready to take charge and be heard. She’s this tiny itty bitty thing, but so full of spunk and tenacity. Fearless and brave. Independent and willful. Determined and wild. While I love every… Continue reading Raising a Fierce Daughter
Before I started my own blog, I read blogs. Lots of them. Since girlfriend never wanted to sleep and only ever wanted to nurse all hours of the night, mommy blogs were my rescue. I would giggle at the funny ones or feel relief when I read an authentic, let’s get real post. When I’d… Continue reading Mothering is Mothering
The truth is stages 49 and 50 never actually happened in Casa de Edwards, but that’s how I envisioned our week ending. Thankfully we’ve been spared the wrath of dudes stomach bug (knock on wood) and instead have been treated with a nice snotpocalypse to finish out the week. That means my poor baby girl… Continue reading 50 Stages of a Toddler Stomach Bug
So I had grand plans to blog 2-3 times a week and that has proven to be a difficult task. Raising tiny humans might have something to do with it or maybe it’s because during some nap times, instead of blogging I take care of my basic needs. Ya know, feed myself, shower, brush my… Continue reading Silence is Golden. Ish.

And I certainly don’t think that if you bed share you are a terrible parent. I think you are a wonderful… Continue reading Why I will never bed share on the regular
Some people hate social media and the overkill of information others share about their lives. Not me. I love seeing cute couples and animals and babies. Don’t get me wrong I have definitely seen my share of questionable posts and may or may not have been guilty of hiding a crazy person or two from my feed (no for… Continue reading Picture Perfect
Today is Rowan’s 8 month birthday. She’s almost been out as long as she was in. Insane. It feels like yesterday we were in the midst of the newborn haze. Oh wait, that was yesterday because she still thinks she’s a newborn. No in all honesty since hiring a sleep consultant I’m definitely becoming less… Continue reading When does the postpartum period really end?
“I slept like a baby” Yep. If you say this, you clearly know didly squat about tiny humans. What you are trying to say is you slept very soundly, but in actuality sleeping like a baby comes with one too many “soundly” interruptions. Like the sound of a baby crapping their pants at 2am. Or… Continue reading Sleep phrases that are a total crock
My husband said this the other day while trying to convince me to have more kids. Nice try my man, but that’s a big fat stupid lie. First off, I’ll be dead and that’s not the same as sleeping. And secondly, I need sleep so I can LIVE! I am a terrible human being when… Continue reading You can sleep when you’re dead
