#Momlife: Year One


I know that I’ve been a mother, technically, since the moment of inception but this post isn’t about that. It’s about my first year as a mother to a living, breathing, human-being.

To say that it has changed me and my world is a total and complete understatement. Of course it has, if it didn’t I would completely judge myself. Creating, growing and nurturing a human being is a life changing experience. It is always on my mind.

Am I doing this right?

Am I doing that right?

Why isn’t she sleeping through the night?

Do all her teeth have to come in at once?

Why don’t I understand all her cries and whines? Shouldn’t I know these things by now? Why do they keep changing? Continue reading “#Momlife: Year One”

I don’t have any ideas. I have no idea what to write about that might carry any interest. How many people will actually read it anyways? Life is so busy and hectic, who has the time?

I’ve thought about writing about how I feel after being a mom for a full year. Do you want to hear about it? I talk and think about my daughter all the time.

Nursemaid what?!?


It was a typical night. Dinner was cooked and eaten with gusto. Baths had been taken, with the majority of the water staying in the tub. Laughs could be heard throughout the house, until that cry of pain that wouldn’t go away. It bought our household to an immediate stop.

Why wouldn’t Emmie stop crying, why was she holding her arm so limp? She could squeeze my fingers. She did her best to stop crying but just the slightest touch to her arm started the tears anew.

There was no swelling or bruising, did she fall on it in her attempts to walk? She can’t tell me what’s wrong, only cling to me in the hopes that I can make it better.

Do I take her to the ER? The Urgent Care? Am I being too paranoid or not paranoid enough? What is the right answer? Continue reading “Nursemaid what?!?”

So I’ve been doing influenster for about a month now, right? I’ve done about 30 reviews on different brands and feel like I’m honing my writing skills in the process. I’m able to think about what draws people to a product and what I want to know before making a purchase myself.

Anyways, about 2 weeks back I learned that I was to receive a Charm VoxBox from Influenster in exchange for honest reviews across social media. I was and am beyond excited! FREE STUFF and I get to give my opinion….SCORE!!!!! #Influenster #IGotItFree
