Am I in Labour or What?!

Today I’m 39 weeks pregnant. And I am not sure if I am in active labour or ‘pre-labour’. How is it that I can forget what a real contraction feels like? To really know if I am in labour or not? Apparently I’m not the only woman who suffers from this lapse in memory. In [...]

For both little boys and girls, there’s nothing I like more than seeing an animal or two in a child’s room—and not just the human kind. Kids love creatures, too. Right now my two-year-old’s best friends are his beloved owl as well as his monkey, elephant, “Ribbit,” and “Ribbit, Jr.” Today I found him serving [...]


Are You Afraid To Let Your Husband Watch The Baby Come Out?

I’m a pretty modest gal.  I don’t generally display a lot of cleavage, I’m not really into super revealing clothing but that’s probably more because I’m getting older and worried about muffin top than morality. But when the birth of my first child drew near, I began instructing my husband on exactly where I wanted [...]
