Be Thankful For Whatever Help You Get After Having A Baby

Having a baby, particularly your first baby, can be one of the hardest things you will ever go through. You can prepare for months in advance and still not be totally ready for the ways your life will be changed by that little sack of flour. You and your partner will have your hands full and naturally, you will want the assistance of anyone willing to offer it, but it is important to be thankful for whatever help you get after having a baby.

I have two younger brothers. Growing up, this meant that most of my possessions were safe because, girl stuff. However, there were still items I had to guard with my life and I can remember thinking that I could not WAIT to be an adult so I could stop worrying about people I live with snatching my stuff without permission.

Janay Rice Is Under A Pressure We Cannot Imagine So Stop Judging Her For Staying

Janay Rice Is Under A Pressure We Cannot Imagine So Stop Judging Her For Staying

In the days after this information went public, much was made of the fact that Janay married him after this incident and that she is defending him now. There are many people insisting that she should leave him and that she is just as “bad” as he is for staying with him despite being physically abused by him.

Scary Mommy: You Will Never Pee Alone Again

I shut the bathroom door behind me, took a giant sip of hot coffee, and exhaled a sigh of absolute relief. I was alone. It was quiet. Just beyond the door was total morning chaos but I was in this marvelous little universe called The Bathroom where civilized folks know not to just waltz in.

It is a bashing of a sanctimonious and judgmental person who just happens to be Catholic. More »

And I was not the only one who was excited-journalists camped out for days awaiting his royal emergence from his mom’s vag and now, on the anniversary of that day, E! Network ran a super amazing and fun-fact filled special called “Prince George Turns 1″. More »

10 Reasons All Stay-At-Home Moms Need To Join A Playgroup

When I got pregnant with our first child, we had just moved an hour away from our friends and family. I did not know anyone locally and I was a young mother- the majority of my friends from home weren’t even married yet let alone starting families. I had planned on being a stay-at-home mom for a few years once our daughter was born but being the social butterfly that I am, I had reservations about how it would go for me without knowing anyone in a similar circumstance.
