Momma, You Can Do This.

I was going to title this post, “Someday you’ll look back and long for these days, and other bull&%$.” But, swearing’s not really my thing.

The long view — enjoy every minute of this because it goes by fast — just doesn’t work for me when I’m in the middle of chaos as a mom of four. And I’ve definitely been in the middle of it this week. You see, my husband and 9-year old twins are gone on a 6-day canoe trip, leaving me flying solo with 2-year old Jax and 7-week old Baby B.

Review: 4moms Breeze

So, when I was given the opportunity to review 4moms’ Infant Tub, I was excited. And, like my rockaRoo, I love it. (more…)

Review: Baby Jack & Co. Lovies

Blankie, lovie, tee tee (as my older sons called theirs), the soft, cuddly blankets to which small children become emotionally attached go by many names. They provide a sense of security when parents are away, keep monsters out of bedrooms at night, and are a natural and important part of childhood. (more…)

C-Sections Suck

What no one wants to tell you about c-sections @ jaxinthebox.comLet’s just get one thing straight …. I am grateful for c-sections. I’m the woman they were made for. All four of my children came into this world via cesarean. They had perfectly round heads, cried right away and may not have lived if it weren’t for this medical intervention. And for that I’m beyond thankful. But c-sections still suck.  (more…)
