Why I chose natural teething toys.

If you’re one of those crunchy moms like me, you research the s*** out of any and everything before you give it to your child. You make sure that everything is free of chemicals, BPA, toxins, bad energy, dyes and fragrances before giving it your stamp of approval. It’s no different when choosing the best […]

The Appalachian Trail

We woke up to a beautiful Sunday today! It was almost 70 degrees in mid February and we HAD to take advantage of it and get out into nature. Since we’re leaving the east coast soon, we decided to head out to The Appalachian Trail to get a few more hikes in before out big […]

Missing out on my kids…

Even though I’ve already spent a good amount of time as a stay-at-home-mom, I still missed out on a good fraction of being with my kids. Yes, I was at home with them. I bathed them, dressed them, fed them, cleaned up after them and guided them when needed but I wasn’t really “there.” I […]

Feels so effortless

With the end of our lease approaching, there’s so much to do to prepare for our big move. A lot of it is touching up our current home to look just as it did when we first moved in (or better). It’s the nice thing to do right? Plus, we need a good reference. ūüėČ […]

Colloidal Silver

It’s been a while since my last blog entry but I wanted to have the time to experience the full benefits of a new supplement I added into my health routine before I wrote about it. Colloidal Silver! I’ve heard of colloidal silver from time to time for over a decade now but I never […]

What breastfeeding was really like.

Before I had kids, I always thought that breastfeeding looked so easy and effortless. I would always see pictures of moms nursing their babies with a big smile on their faces. But nobody really talks about the hard work behind it. With my first child, I wasn’t able to breastfeed for long. Shortly after the […]

My home birth story

When I gave birth to Landon, I was in a birthing inn. Long hours of labor with the continuous internal exams by complete strangers and constant distractions of medical equipment and needless chattering in a bright lit room. I thought I had been prepared for coping with my contractions but since I believed that birth […]

Working through triggers.

Every single person has things that will trigger them to snap. The reaction actually does not have much to do with the present moment but from a past unhealed trauma. The people who trigger us in our lives are the messengers, communicating to us that there is a part of ourselves that we need to¬†heal. […]

Why my kids don’t have to hug you

Majority of people (especially these days) feel entitled to receive¬†physical affection¬†because of the type of relationship they have with another individual.¬†Significant others feel entitled to intimacy because they’re in a relationship. Family members are entitled to a warm hug or a kiss on the cheek because they’re related. People feel like they’re supposed to shake […]
