Postpartum Freezer Meals List

Postpartum Freezer Meals List

My friend Erinn from Embracing Everything asked for a list of the freezer meals that I used after this pregnancy, so I thought it might be helpful to a few other people as well. Why kill two birds with one stone when there are eggs in your bush that you shouldn't count? I started too late preparing for Eli Benjamin. I felt like doo-doo for most of the pregnancy, so I blame it on that. In all honesty, you should start prepping freezer meals in the middle of your second trimester. Most meals ...

She didn't sleep through the night until she was almost 4 years old - and even now only sleeps all night 2-3 nights per week. So, for all you mamas out there with kids that sleep great, drop to your knees right now and thank the good Lord above for this blessing. ;-) I felt the Spirit right there.

The Mommy Workout is Enough for Me

The Mommy Workout is Enough for Me

Note: I am not a doctor. There is no M.D. or PhD after my name - I have the bank account to prove it. This is simply a satire from a Mommy of three young children 5 and under. Please take it as the funny post it is meant to be instead of an article on webmd.com. I have waffled a lot in my approach to dieting and exercise. I've praised different approaches on this very blog - and I've fallen away from those same approaches. Why is that, I wonder? I'll tell ya - because I'm a fickle female, ... Continue Reading...
