An Easy, Protein-Packed Lunch For Busy Moms

  It’s a common occurrence that Max starts hustling for lunch as soon as I’ve wrapped up the breakfast dishes. Reid quickly follows suite. I usually try to stall them with an activity and set the timer so they can see countdown to a snack. But then, you guessed it, once that final bite of […]


Max’s Big Brother Babymoon

You didn’t think Jemma was the only one getting a babymoon, did you? Nope! Max got one too! Jemma remembers Reid’s birth and early days pretty vividly. Max doesn’t recall much. But this baby? This is his baby. As a brand new 5 year old, Max dotes on Reid and knows he is a big brother, but […]


This + That

Have you read this ^^^? I’m about halfway done and really enjoying it. Raw and messy and beautiful, just like motherhood. I’ve been on a roll of staying up mega late (like 2am and then listening to an audiobook to drift off). Naturally, I’m a night owl, but having birthed two early birds, often, I […]

Well, let me tell you! JBF is by far the best way to shop for kids. From clothing to books to toys to baby essentials … JBF […]


Jemma’s Big Sister Babymoon

New babies bring lots of changes. And not just for me and Dominic, for our whole family. The big kids are very much anticipating this new baby, but I think they’re sensing the growing responsibility of having a new little one around too. Currently they tag team Reid like champs. That boy can’t get in […]


Pencil Pouch Storage For Puzzles

      Back to school season is upon us! Are you cheering? Personally, I love back to school season. It’s such a fresh start. Back to school brings routine; organization and an infusion of fun too. All good things. All things that are smile-worthy for mamas and kiddos alike. During this season I always […]

What I Never Knew About Cord Blood Banking

I’m expecting my fourth baby and don’t think I could accurately answer the question, “What is cord blood banking?” I mean, I know it has to do with birth and there is prep work beforehand in regards to signing up and talking to your OB or midwife about the actual event, but to give you […]
