As a mom, the power of essential oils for immediate relief of congestion cannot be overstated. At least not for me. My daughter doesn’t get sick very often. Even just a mild case of the sniffles or a cough happens about once a year, and when it happens, I’m on it like white on rice. [...]
My husband and I cautiously made the decision to send our daughter back to face to face classes this January after a few false starts last year. Eventually, hubby and I assessed the situation on an environmental level, on a personal level as individual parents and as a unit, and then incorporated the school's protocols [...]
I thought my family and I might benefit from a detox after the holidays, seeing as how much food we ate in a short space of time. Babe, let’s skip meat for two weeks...” If you’re thinking my husband’s face drained of colour, you’re absolutely right. My husband loves him some chicken. As anticipated, we [...]
I was listening to a podcast and the topic of discussion was centred around a young woman who said that she was single until she was married due to …Single Til Married?
Being married to a doctor is brutal. Even more so when said doctor is a resident. From the time my husband and I started dating, his professional path was something that I took honest consideration about, among other things. Not to be a brat, but as someone who was a student nurse myself once upon [...]
Have you even had an ovarian cyst rupture or slow leak? I've been struggling with themleaking and rupturing for a while now. I posted a video on my Instagram teasing about a possible pregnancy some weeks ago. After a flurry of messages in my inbox, I came clean. I wasn't (am not) pregnant at all. [...]
Yes, you read that right. I was almost kidnapped. This blog post is a mite different from anything I've shared on here. It's darker, a piece of me I still actively sometimes struggle with. The other day I mentioned the effect a past experience had on me to a friend. She asked me a crucial question, [...]
These last few weeks, watching Siobhán grow like a weed and immersing myself completely in the experience of being her mom, I've been hit with an unexpected conundrum, baby fever. I feel it wash through me everytime I look at my child, or see one younger than her. I look at her baby pictured wrought with [...]
Hey guys! Let's talk about potty training your toddler. Okay, my daughter has really been potty training a few months now, technically. I started her at 12 months when I noticed she would poop and then march right over to me pulling at the diaper. Now if you're thinking it's early, that's true. But I [...]
If motherhood has taught me nothing else, it is the true meaning of the phrase "beautiful mess" and the preciousness in appreciating every day and not letting life pass you by. This whirlwind of a journey has been indescribable from the start, but more importantly, I now understand the true preciousness of time and living in the [...]
If I had a son, who placed me before his wife, I would consider it a personal failure.
On October 13, 2016, my most precious bundle of joy was born. It feels like just yesterday that I heard the doctor say "Siobhán is out!". She was so tiny, even her newborn clothes were big. My husband hogged her for the first few weeks. The only thing I would get to do was feed [...]
I know I've been MIA lately on the blogs, so the short answer is that I've been around. Spending some quality time with the family, balancing the transition from being a mother to a young stationary baby and a rambunctious, overzealous (now walking) toddler whilst managing my freelancing and even a bit of study. I [...]
