I’m thrilled to be guest posting today for the lovely Shell at Things I Can’t Say. She has an awesome blog that I’ve been following for a long time. Please click over and check it out!
There was a time during my first pregnancy that maternity swim wear was relegated to a swath of dull and unflattering colors, a one-size-fits all mentality, where suits were a function over form design. This need not be the case anymore. As a matter of fact, today’s modern maternity swimwear is comfortable, cute and for under $100, very cost-effective.
My wonderful sister-in-law, Jen, wrote this post for us today! She writes over at On The Night You Were Born, she has three beautiful girls, and she’s super awesome. Show her some love for me!
Long before we had three kids, I remember saying to my cousin (who’s like my sister), “I have what I think must be the perfect job situation — I work part-time, my kids aren’t even home when I work, and yet I still can’t find time for some things. Other moms work full-time, and still have to cook and clean and do laundry and all the same things that I do. How on earth would I do it all if I had to work full-time when I can’t even do it all now working part-time! Something would have to give, but I don’t know what!”
I’m happy to welcome Nicole Connolly, PhD, today to talk about reducing stress in light of Mental Health Awareness Month. I must say, motherhood has brought me more stress than anything else has! Thank you for being here, Nicole!
If you are like the typical mom, you are on the go from the moment your feet hit the ground. Between family, work, and household demands, stress can begin to accumulate quickly, with little time left over to manage it.
Today, I’m happy to introduce you to author Pauline Wiles! Pauline writes articles on lifestyle and organizing and when she offered to write a post about low-cost mood boosters, I was excited to read her ideas. Enjoy!
For the days when you’re feeling just a little bit blue, taking action before your mood sinks further can be really helpful. But that doesn’t mean buying shoes or feasting on chocolate cake. Below are some calorie-free, low-cost options for lifting your spirits.
Today, I’d like to introduce you to Dr. Jessica Michaelson. I’m so happy to have her here to write about a topic that I struggled over – deciding to have another baby after a postpartum mood disorder. If you’re currently making that decision, I hope you’ll find this post very helpful. Thank you, Dr.!
