Sit Down…the show is about to begin.

Quite a production, indeed.  The reviews are still out, but it’s clear mom is not impressed.  We are skipping the curtain call and going straight to a “time out.“  All future shows will be cancelled.

Bonding Breakfast

Remember the first day of school?  Walking into a new classroom, with a new teacher, and new kids.  Not fun.  Pretty scary, actually.  My neighbor had a GREAT idea for her kids…so we’ll share.

The Mommy Perks

In my very first entry I mentioned “Team Mom.“  I’m not the captain, barely a bench warmer…more of a cheerleader.  I’m just glad I made the team.

It hit me last night.  My baby is turning into a “big girl.“  Now how did that happen?

Maybe you can relate?  Postpartum depression affects 80% of new moms and there’s new research out today about why.

Stealing a Moment

Last night I peaked into Caroline’s bedroom.  I love to watch my baby girl sleep.  It’s in her peacefulness that I find my own peace.

Behind the Scenes—Meet Denise

It’s time to meet Denise.  If it weren’t for her, I don’t think I’d be able to turn on my computer, let alone do a daily blog.  Cheers to Denise!

These are a few of My Favorite Things…

Raindrops on roses are lovely and all, but I much prefer my baby girl’s soft hair on my cheek and the smell of coffee in the morning.  What are your favorite things?

A Baby Journal

Do you keep a baby journal?  I do, and I love it!  Writing everything down helps me realize how quickly time slips by, and how I need to cherish each moment with my daughter.
