• Pursuing Your Passion & Why it’s Not Always a Good Thing

    December 18, 2018

    My husband just started a new career (cue balloons and glitter). The transition is completely scary, exciting and filled with so many opportunities for the future.

  • 5 Steps to Turn Mom Guilt into Growth

    December 11, 2018

    “Your hair looks stupid“. I cringe when I think about the fact that those four words actually came out of my mouth and were directed at my 2 year old son. (And I can imagine the look on your face reading this, eeks). After an infuriating attempt to cut Ezra’s hair I blew a gasket.…

  • How I Got My Toddler to Eat Veggies

    April 30, 2018

    Ezra used to eat ANYTHING, even peas which to me are poison. I used to brag that he would skip the picky eater stage and always eat his fruits and vegetables.
