A Low Bar For Self Care

Everyone knows that mothers don't have time for themselves. What people are just now discovering is that mothers in quarantine somehow bend the principles of mathematics and have even less time for themselves. Every day is the same struggle of trying to work from home,...

A Letter To Myself

Dear 7 Months Postpartum You,   Life feels pretty surreal, huh? People keep referring to the “new normal,” but nothing has felt normal for a really long time. 2019 was anything but, kicking January off with a positive pregnancy test and ending with a 9pm bedtime on...

Just The Essentials

It was yesterday. I wore a Hello Kitty face mask and had my ID, credit card, car key and hand sanitizer in my pockets. I performed a cautious and abbreviated version of my tried and true choreography around the store, stopping first for the biggest...

Before I had a child, I swore I would not become the parent who only posted photos of her baby. And, now look at me:     This is my life now. Just a bunch of pictures with the same two family members at home or outside (ok,...

The First Two Months

The other day while in line to check out at Whole Foods, a woman behind us noticed the baby I was wearing. “Enjoy. It goes by so fast,” she warmly advised as she side smiled at the thirteen-year-old helping unload her cart onto the conveyor...

Expecting W/O Expectation

After our engagement, I resolved to not talk about wedding planning for three whole months. This was in May and by the time September rolled around, as promised, I chose a venue.   I know myself, and myself needs time because myself hates change. We had an...

A Year of *Not Journaling

On New Year's Eve day, I took a midday stroll with my friend before getting ready for the evening's festivities –– this year a wedding. We stopped into a cute boutique by our apartments to touch all the mildly overpriced clothes and home goods. Per...
