Life is a Tilt-a-Whirl

Without the option of getting off. That’s what I feel like right now. I just gave birth two weeks ago, and surprisingly, I am adjusting pretty well. It’s everything else that has my head spinning! Just because you have a baby doesn’t mean life slows down so you can keep up. I wish! Within the…

Pregnant While Depressed

To Work or Not to Work? That is the Question…

So I’ve been at this stay at home thing for less than a year and already I’m contemplating my return to work. I know I know, this may seem like a cop-out but I promise it’s not. Financially, all the responsibility lies on my husband to pay the bills and while that’s noble, it doesn’t…
