Inner Peace with a Side of Guilt

Remember how I said I was going to meditate every day in December? I did it! Ok, I did it every day but one. The dilio was, I felt like I was going a little crazy, so I told Dan I thought this was a post-partum-y kind of deal and maybe I ought to schedule an […]

Race Report: Monster Dash 5k

Last weekend Dan and I ran the Louisville Monster Dash 5K. I was nervous and excited to see where my fitness was, as this was my first race since Lady Bug was born in June. Dan and I spent more time trash talking each other in advance of this race than we actually spent running […]

It Gets Easier

I overheard the only dad in Sweet Pea’s swim lesson mention something about a baby at home in between blowing bubbles and practicing reaching and pulling. “We have a baby at home too.” I offered. “How old?” he asked. “Four months. What about you?” “Three days.” I smiled and offered congratulations. “Does it get easier?” […]

The Bizarro World Golden Rule

Yesterday morning I set my alarm for 6am. All I wanted was an hour or so to myself before people would start needing me. (Although who are we kidding, I’m on call 24/7. Or my breasts are, anyway, with a newborn in the mix). The baby was up at 4:45 to nurse. When I put […]

I Felt Like a Good Mom Until I Read This

After reading “Bringing Up Bebe”  by Pamela Druckerman, I tried to do everything the French way.  I was optimistic that I could parent more like a French person, which was the goal, because the French way is obviously the best way. “One best way?

Listen To Your Mother: The Morning After

Our show was last night. I’m not sure how to put into words how it felt to see our show come together. To see each and every one of our cast members share intimate parts of themselves with our audience. To hear our audience’s laughter and sniffles. To see the vague shapes of heads nodding […]

Placenta Pills: Not Just For Grossing Out Your Friends and Family

Weaning’s a bitch. (Sorry, subtle isn’t my thing). Back when Sweet Pea was a teeny tiny potato-like little thing, I read this article about weaning and depression and I tucked it away somewhere in my brain. Then a friend of mine mentioned how she weaned super gradually with her second because she had mood issues […]

Mission Accountable Day 5: A spin on the trainer, placenta pills

 Today was supposed to be the Day The Whole Family Went For A Run. I was supposed to take Sweet Pea in the BOB stroller for a jog with a girlfriend, which has become a Monday morning tradition lately. I think we’ve done it twice… Yes, I use the term “tradition” loosely.  But my friend […]

Important Stuff: Going Back to Work, Pie

If you should find yourself able to take a six month leave from your job, be aware that when you return, you just might feel like a celebrity. Not that I have any idea what it feels like to be famous, I’m just guessing. My first day back, I was lavished with attention, so I […]
