I had a two hour drive ahead of me.  A part of me wanted to speed home. But the other part didn't want the drive to end. At one point I began to lie to myself that everything was...
It's the little moments. Sometimes I grant a request to bake brownies on a Tuesday afternoon in an already messy kitchen. Sometimes I'll play a few rounds of Uno or Guess Who, even though I'm not really in the mood. Often I'll...
I Love a Good Plan I'm definitely a practical mom. I'm the "we need a plan and schedule" type of mom. If we have a fun day or a big outing planned, I have thought through the naps, the snacks,...
We all know motherhood changes us in a big way, and sometimes it can feel lonely. Unfortunately, that means we aren’t always the greatest about maintaining our relationships with our non-mom friends. So to all my non-mom friends: I’m sorry. To...
To the brave mom I encountered in the grocery store: I'm still thinking about what happened, even though several weeks have passed. I wish that I had said or done something--ANYTHING--while I had the chance. You see, I was shopping alongside...
Worry. The monster bared its teeth now and again as I grew up. The claws came out when I got married. And it finally reared its head when I had children. One day in the early months of pregnancy, I sat...
On March 21, the social media world will be flooded with pictures of feet in crazy socks. Who doesn't love a good pair of crazy socks? March 21 is World Down Syndrome Day. The date of 3/21 was chosen because...

I developed the mom guilt bug a few weeks after my daughter was born. It was time for me to get back into working. I had a subscription box I needed to get out, designs that needed to be...
It was my first job out of college, and it was overwhelming. I was twenty-two years old, green, fresh out of school, and scared. The hospital’s Neonatal ICU was a place of great intensity. I can still remember the yelling...
Oh, daylight saving time. Prior to having kids it was just another day. You lost a little bit of sleep, but the extra daylight is invigorating. In the fall, you relished the extra hour. Now as a parent, you're...
I often forget to think about what my children see when they look up. My oldest children are four years old and almost four feet tall and two years old and almost three feet tall. Then there’s my six-month-old who...
As an immigrant, my Mexican roots, culture, and where I come from make up a big portion of who I am. At the age of nine, my dad decided to pursue an opportunity through his job which led us to...
I remember back in my day things seemed to be simpler. Most of my time was spent playing outside, helping my dad, or doing something fun that didn't cost much money. I would play in the mud and use the...
