How Much Breastmilk Do You Pump?

This is my second time nursing and pumping. I was able to exclusively breastfeed my first child for the first six months. When I went back to work, I was concerned about the quantity of milk I was expressing. I would dutifully go to an empty conference room and lock the door. I would close… Continue Reading

Good Employee

For my professional career, I have been a GREAT employee.  I finished my work before it needed to be done and asked for additional work.  This led to growth opportunities, such as increasing my job responsibilities or promotion. But being a good employee does not translate into going into business for yourself.  I have been… Continue Reading

Be like Antole – Create Your Own Opportunities

  I recently attended Family Storytime at my local library.  It was a half hour of story telling and little sing a longs.  Storytime ended with a little video about Anatole. Anatole is a mouse living in France, with a family.  He provides for his family by “working” at a cheese factory.  He samples the… Continue Reading

Why I Love Diaper Flats

I love diaper flats! They are so versatile. You can use them as spit up/burp cloths, diapers, to wipe up messes and on and on. I had a baby 10 days ago and decided to venture finally out. My son didn’t have preschool this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday and he was uber antsy… Continue Reading

Kissaluv Newborn Fitted Diapers Rock

These are my favorite newborn diapers! I’m on newborn #2 and these diapers are super easy to use! I’m not exclusively cloth only, I do use disposables at night. I also used disposables during the meconium phase. But I love the nubby texture of the Kissaluv fitted diapers. I breastfeed and the bf poops are… Continue Reading

HCG Diet – My Experience

Labor Pains

Labor Pains

Eventhough I have been through labor once before, I have very anxious to go through it again!  Part of my anxiety stems from this baby being so much more active than my last one! With my first, I was in labor for 40 hours.  I was exhausted!  I tried to breathe through the pain, I… Continue Reading

HCG Diet – Tried It and Liked it!

I tried the HCG diet as part of my personal growth.  Last year was a huge year of personal change for me.  I had two miscarriages.  After the first miscarriage, I decided to focus on me.  I was so focused on work and my family that I forgot about me.  I started working out again,… Continue Reading

Mental Toughness

I love watching Extreme Makeover Weight Loss edition.  The people on the show have over 100lbs+ to lose and they have to do it by themselves.  While the trainer stays with them for a few months in the beginning, afterwards, they are responsible for keeping to the program on their own. I like watching their… Continue Reading
