pregnancy tes

When you wait until you are 33 years old to try to have your first baby (and spent the better part of your 20s and 30s in full-on birth-control mode), you really have no idea how fertile you might be. When my husband and I first decided it was time to "start trying," I was all about mapping out my cycle, using an ovulation tester to understand my "most fertile days," and then, ahem, doing what it takes to ensure our likelihood of successful conception. And within two months, we saw that ...

There have been so many (wonderful) movements to get moms into pictures – Allison Slater Tate’s, The Mom Stays In The Picture struck a chord with mothers around the world for it’s straight-forward poignancy and call to action to stop disappearing from our children’s – and our own – stories and Bridgette White’s, Exposed by my children for what I really look like told the all-too-relatable story of wanting to delete photos of ourselves simply because we don’t look (mythically) ...

Fact: What parents think of their tweens and teens matters to them. This is common sense, right?

A few months ago an article featuring the word SEXY crossed my feed. It gave me enough pause to take a look, but the content made me keep scrolling: photos of women mid-orgasm. I’ll admit that my mind started wandering with important questions, mostly about the logistics – where was the photographer? What did the pre-photo session sound like? Just… how? And… why?

7 things you should say every day

When my husband, Jason, and I were on our honeymoon, we kept running into a sweet older couple at the beach, in line, on tours. The woman took to giving me marriage tips each time we saw each other. Hold his hand. Be nice to his mom. Have lots of sex. On our last night, I wondered if we’d see each other again when she appeared behind me. She put her arm around my shoulders and said, “Keep talking to each other.” At the time we were so young and so carefree and so focused on each ...

As I am writing this, it's a perfect Saturday afternoon. 

It really couldn't be more picturesque, really. The wind is softly blowing, the sun is shining gloriously without being too hot, and the promise of fall and adventure is in the air. 

Except for me, the only "adventure" I have going on in my day is a couple loads of laundry to look forward to. 

You see, I'm a stay-at-home mom whose husband works a lot of weekends. And while it feels like most of the world is off ...
