As much as I love sharing about pregnancy and birth, I think I most love finding camaraderie in the postpartum phase of motherhood.  Pregnancy is a little less than a year, birth, in the best circumstances, is less than a day, but postpartum?

My big kids are away at camp this week. I cannot deal. How are they old enough to leave for so long? Granted, it’s just day camp and they’re with their aunt in the evenings. But still, I’m a ball of anxious energy waiting to get them back in my arms! Also, that big guy […]

Summer is here!  I mean, not technically, but for our family because the school year wrapped up this week. We’re loving the sunshine, the longer days, popsicles, park visits, and sleeping in. Jokes. No one is sleeping in here. We have been napping well lately though. Slower days with less to dos allow that. And […]
