My Road to Mommyhood Part 2

So it’s been awhile since I’ve told the first part of my Road to Mommyhood story, so I figured I’d start with a very abridged recap. During part one of my story you learned that I had one miscarriage, followed by a D&C that resulted in a lot of problems for me. The doctor left retained product in me, and so my body continued gaining weight because it thought I was still pregnant. By the time they figured out what was wrong, I had already gained 20 lbs, had a belly that appeared pregnant, and no baby to show for

My Untold Story to Mommyhood

I’ve wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember. I truly feel like my mom was put on this planet to be a mom, and that most likely is the reason. A few years after meeting my husband I began a very rigorous Masters program. I watched girls dropping out left and right when they became pregnant, and so I told my husband, Steve, I wanted to wait until I was done to start trying. We loved traveling and being together, and so for us it was no big deal. It wasn’t until we had been

Swim With Mr. Blue

As a mom living in Florida one of my biggest fears is of drowning.  I mean who can blame me?  Drowning is one of the leading causes of unintentional injury-related deaths in our country.  As soon as Charlie turned about 15-months-old, I began private swim lessons mostly for comfortability with the water.  A lot of my friends did a program called ISR, but I was way too much of a scaredy-cat for it.  In all honesty, I didn’t even want Charlie being dunked under the water at all. However, when Charlie turned 2, I began exploring the best options for

Sleep Training Is Everything

When I was pregnant with Charlie I recall everyone telling me I needed to read this parenting book and that parenting book, and this sleep training book and that sleep training book. In all honesty? I had ZERO interest in spending my free time reading about “how to be a parent,” and I bought none of them. I watched everyone reading “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” as if they were cramming for the SATs, and I just had no interest. It wasn’t until I was in my third trimester that a book finally peaked my interest. All of the
