10 Things I Wish I Knew as a New Mom

Are you a new mom? I’ve been there…twice. In my last 5+ years as a mother, I’ve learned a lot, and decided it’s time I share some tips (10 to be exact) with the new moms out there who have now idea what the hell they’re getting themselves into! These are things I WISH I knew ladies, so pay attention, take notes, and share these tips with your other mama friends (sharing buttons at the bottom. haha).

#1. Sleep is a luxury, not a right

I never knew how much I would miss sleep until I had my first child. I can’t believe I actually took it for granted! The sweet shut-eye I once abused was they very thing I relished when my little one came along. Thank¬†goodness for coffee or would have been toast! (I actually can’t believe how much I actually say that about most things. lol)

#2. You will need cabbage, lots of cabbage

But what for? Your boobs! When you first get your milk in those puppies will feel like two overripe watermelons. Sore, red, bulging and painful. The way around it–a shit ton of cold cabbage leaves. A certain chemical in the cold cabbage leaves aids in the reduction of swelling. But be careful, this can also lessen milk supply, and should only be used when you’re literally exploding (i.e. milk could shoot out at a moment’s notice.), and you need to reduce your milk supply fast to prevent a volcanic eruption.

You know that feeling you get when you see an extremely good-looking stud? Butterflies, flight or fight responses, flushed skin, um…other side effects. Everyone’s different and I won’t begin to diagnose the right or wrong way to react. (I think that’s best saved for your gyno or your therapist.)

Turning the page. lol

This week has been a shit storm

I sit in front of my laptop on a Saturday night tired and sick as all hell. In fact, since my littlest has had pink eye the whole week and decided to share, so I’m also writing with one eye glued shut. ūüė¶

For the past couple weeks either me, my kids or my husband have been sick in some form or another. Sometimes I feel like we literally look like the  cast of the walking dead. haha. Continue reading

#MamaView w/ Nicole

What’s a #MamaView?

Ever wondered if you’re totally alone in this “being a mom in 2017 thing?” You’re not. #MamaViews are interviews¬†conducted over Facebook messenger that aim to take a deep dive into what it’s really like to be a #MillennialMom. (Yeah, yeah…we completed the interview over messenger, but amidst our busy schedules, could you see us really being able to meet in person? Plus, I didn’t have to write up our conversation afterward, so there. lol)

About Nicole: 
Nicole¬†and I have been friends for AGES! She is a complete and utter Bad-A$$. She’s a single (and excellent) mother of one, with a rocking personality and body to match! How¬†does she do it all? Who knows!? I’m seriously amazed by all that she accomplishes.¬†Hear Nicole dish on life, men and the millennial stigma in this exclusive #MamaView!

burning mail in the fire

Scared, determined and fed up, I decided to tackle one of the biggest problem areas in our home today…the paper monster.

These sneaky little devils find¬†their way into our home through none other than, you guessed it–the mailbox.

The kitchen counter, living room desk, on top of the fridge, mantle, kitchen table, bathroom (yeah I know strange), you name it–these things are out to devour us!
