BABY SHOWER 2.0

Do you or don’t you have another baby shower for the second baby? Or do you have a “baby sprinkle” – because it’s not the first baby? AND, What the actual heck is a baby sprinkle? The internet can be a very funny and confusing place, am I right? I read an online article awhile ago talking about how it’s good baby shower practice (and etiquette) to have “baby sprinkles” after your first child. Basically, a ‘baby sprinkle’ is a low key – no fuss baby shower. Which I get,… Read More

JUST MOMMING SO HARD

I’M JUST MOMMING SO HARD – that’s what she said. Ever felt like you’re “MOMMING” so hard – in your ever rotating ‘MOM hamster wheel?’ Speaking of hamsters – as a kid, it always fascinated me whenever I saw hamsters eagerly running in a trance like state in their rotating metal wheels.

THE INTROVERTED MOM

A common misconception when people first meet me, is to naturally assume that I am outgoing and an a natural extrovert. Probably because I teach drama, write and direct shows, and come across as quirky and bubbly. Yes, I can do all those things – but believe me when I say: I LOVE ‘me time’, I love being alone, getting lost in a book or in a gripping series, or hanging out in a coffee shop (by myself- ha). Introverted people can be conversational, confident, creative. YET, they desperately need… Read More
