What to really expect when you’re expecting

Go for it. Buy the cutesy pastel coloured pregnancy books. But read this short little ditty too.  It’s high time you knew what to really expect when you’re expecting- especially past month 5 – as you embark on this journey. It all starts sweetly enough…. Month One 1. You likely won’t know you’re “in the family…

Terror in Titty Town?

My cervix may be far from D day but my brain is not. I can’t seem to turn my thoughts away from the subject of boobs. Nursing. Nipples….more specifically pain and cracked nipples. This is a very brief tale of woe of my initiation into breastfeeding and then a how to for doing it differently….

Wake Up Already.

I’ve been experiencing a reawakening. The sort that causes you to pause and notice yourself and your life a little bit. The kind that results in rediscovering past passions, interests, skills. I can’t say with definitiveness what ignited this awareness but I do think that Dan Millman’s The Sacred Journey has a lot to do…

Witty-Titty.

I am thinking that if any profit is ever made from organizing, running and hosting wee wiggles activities I just may use the money to pick my tit’s off the floor.  Which invariable is where they will end up if I keep trying to nurse while walking because I want to be “fair” and tend…

Mommy-ness vs. Woman-ness.

I think I completely underestimated the possible occurrence that these two most female descriptors could compete with one another, or even cancel one another out. I had fantasies of mommy-hood: I was going to be hip, fresh, manicured and on top of having every hair in place and being myself I was going to be fun,…
