Take The Day Off Once upon a time, before I had my youngest, I hated taking time off. I can’t explain it. I would drive from Zachary to New Orleans and back again, just for work. Looking back, that was insane (for me because I don’t like to drive that much). Once, I had a tire completely blow out and still drove to work. I even did it when I was the only one getting up with a newborn, even pregnant with the absolute worst morning (all day) sickness.  Looking back, I wonder about all of the things I missed that I didn’t have to miss. My big boy went through so many milestones in nursery. Even though I was friendly...
You’re Gonna Miss This I still follow all the breastfeeding support groups and pages I utilized while nursing. Day after day I see moms asking for advice, for recommendations, for simple acknowledgement that they’re doing the right thing. From time to time I comment, hoping to help. I’ve been out of the breastfeeding game for 2 years now and I still miss it very often. I miss the bond with my children. I miss the milk drunk smiles and their little hands rubbing my face while they happily nursed. I look back on that time with so much fondness. I’ve breastfed 3 out of my 4 children. My daughter nursed for three and a half years, my two youngest sons each nursed...

A Tribute To The Work Bestie

A Tribute To The Work Bestie Ever since I was the ripe, old age of 15 I have been a “working girl.” I have always reveled in the idea of making my very own money and the feeling of independence that it offers. I have been employed in many factions and various types of work but one thing that all of these occupations have in common is that each one provided me with a friend that I especially enjoyed working alongside. That one person that you looked forward to surviving a shift with, that made it fun, and allowed lasting memories to live with you. In the past I have picked up weights and wiped down gym equipment with my buddy Adam...
