There’s nothing more fulfilling than starting your day at 5am, comforting toddlers who woke up because of a nightmare, and then spending the rest of the day preparing meals, picking up things off the floor, and making sure the kids don’t get crushed by a big ass shelf before my breadwinner husband comes home. Ahhh heaven...

I surveyed the other moms in our office, asking them what other fun activities I should be introducing to my bub.Some suggested that I keep my kid busy with music lessons, literacy classes, and sports. One of my colleagues, on the other hand, Amy, a mom of five boys and obviously more experienced in this whole parenting gig than I am, shocked me with her answer...

Discipline is all about teaching children how to act appropriately and safely. The goal is to encourage good behavior in the child in order to raise an emotionally mature adult in the future. And I’m telling you, it is not a walk in the park.

8 VERY Practical Things to Do to Get Ready for a Baby

8 VERY Practical Things to Do to Get Ready for a Baby

April 28, 2019 4 min read

I’m a list person. Even before becoming a rockstar stay-at-home mom, I’ve always been a fan of lists—grocery lists, to-do lists, bucket lists, you name it! My type A personality craved order and organization, and list-making was a surefire way to help me achieve just that. Barely a week after I added “mom” to my portfolio, I learned that the list I made was no newborn checklist after all—it was a shitlist! Nothing—not even my newborn baby starter kit— prepared me for the soul-crushing, mountain-moving, universe-imploding journey that was to come!

How I Swapped My Kid's Screen Time for Green Time (Yes It Is Possible)

April 24, 2019 6 min read

Is it still possible to raise kids sans gadgets these days? This is a question I’m sure every millennial parent has asked at one point or another. Having read tons of research about how screen time in excess can be harmful to infants and toddlers, I was hell-bent on raising a gadget-free child. Now three and a half years into motherhood, and I’d like to tell all the iPad-wielding parents out there I’m sorry. I’m sorry I used to go all Judgy McJudgerson on you because you let your kids stay glued to a screen. Not anymore, people. Not anymore.

The Weight that Mothers Carry

The Weight that Mothers Carry

April 22, 2019 3 min read

Before getting pregnant, I maintained a healthy weight of 50 kilos, went to the gym and did yoga three times a week, and ate as well as I could. I loved my body, and I loved showing it off (which is probably the reason why I got pregnant ;) ). After announcing my pregnancy, though, everyone warned me that not only was I going to lose sleep, I was also going to lose the body I worked hard for and then, well...gain weight.

How to Have a Natural Birth (From Someone Who Had a C-Section)

My labor and delivery experience didn’t go exactly as I hoped and planned for. The contractions were fast and furious, definitely nothing like my friends had told me. I got to 10 centimeters dilated in 8 hours, and then I was told to push. But after more than an hour of pushing with no baby to show for it, the doctors told me we would have to consider a c-section.
