That Baby Smell


  I don't want you to think I didn't bond with my baby as you read this. Because I did. He has been attached to me since day one. I'm not entirely sure the umbilical cord was completely severed. But bringing home the second baby was so much different than...

Hello, 30!


Please send me your recommendations for retirement homes, because I'm officially old. Kidding. If you asked me my age and I had zero time to think about it, I'd probably say 27. I'm completely fine with being 30, but I don't feel like a mature 30 year old woman. Somehow, I have a...
