Dear Stretch Marks

Dear Stretch Marks, Let me begin by saying this: I thought I was the cocoa butter queen of the world. I lathered myself from hips to nips from the time I was 4 weeks pregnant (yep, you read that right) until the day before I went to the hospital, convincing myself I would elude these […]

I'm the Mom of an Only Child --Stop Saying These 5 Things to Me | Baby Chick

Growing up, if anyone asked me how many kids I wanted to have some day, I always used to offer a range: Somewhere between four and six, I’d say.

Work-Life Balance is Easy: Said No Mom Ever | Baby Chick

I grew up like many millennial mamas did: I came home from school day after day. Popping open a pack of dunkaroos to munch on while I did homework.

I'm Not a Lazy Mom, I am Freaking Exhausted and I Need Help | Baby Chick

I had family over to my house recently. It was an unexpected drop by visit, so I was in a social hostage situation if, we’re being precise. I’d made big plans for my day to do a boatload of nothing with my babe; a makeshift “girl’s day” because my husband was out fishing. I’m an […]

Mom Hacks: Evening Habits to Help You Have Easier Mornings | Baby Chick

I was in a chaotic season of life that left me feeling totally exhausted, worn out and irritable by 5pm every day.

If people think being a stay-at-home mom is a leisure gig – they’re dead wrong. In fact, it is highly irritating to me when I hear people say “oh, you stay home with your kids! So what do you guys do all day?” Excuse me – what do I DO ALL DAY?! I do everything […]
