We’re talking abut preparing our bodies, and babies, for labor/delivery/and birth, even if you are having a c-section! Come join us and share you favorite ways to gear yourself up for the big day!
If you’ve clicked over from The Better Mom, you’re very welcome here and I’m so glad to have you! Get a hot cuppa, put your feet up and take a look around!
Wow, has it really been a month since I’ve posted??
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your patience with me and sticking around while I’ve been so quiet!
We arrived safe and sound in the States and promptly hit the ground running. We’ve not stopped traveling in some form or fashion in the 3.5 weeks we’ve been here! We just finished up a great time with my family taking our kiddos to Disneyland for the first time (you can bet there will be posts/pics about that coming up)! And now, we are in one place for a couple of weeks before we have to travel again, so hopefully – Lord willing – things will get a little more back to normal around here!
I’m delighted that the second post of the Comfy Pregnancy Series is up at The Better Mom today! Come on over and join us as we chat about how to get the comfiest sleep possible in pregnancy! Be sure to share your tried and true tips in the comments!
If you’ve just joined us from The Better Mom, I want to extend a warm, fresh-on-American-soil-from-Ireland welcome to you! Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to make yourself at home and have a look around! The kettle’s always on, even on this side of the pond.
If you’ve spent any time around here at all, then you probably know that hubs and I have three amazing kids. Two girls, ages 8 and 5, and a wacky lil’ man who is 2. I never would have made it through each pregnancy, delivery and early days without the amazing support, encouragement and advice from other mamas just a few steps ahead of me on this crazy road of motherhood.
Even now my mama friends are a huge source of support and encouragement to me – and I hope I am to them!
I do find it funny, however, that no matter how old my kids get – or their kids are – inevitably, given enough time and conversation the topic of our pregnancies rolls around. We all regale one another with the tales of our own experiences; even if we’ve all heard them before! It’s something that is so much a part of who we are – who we’ve become – that we just have to share it.
That’s why I’m so excited to announce my new monthly series over at The Better Mom:
This four part series will look at the best, most effective tips and tricks for having the comfiest pregnancy possible, as well as taking you through to those tender first days and weeks. I’d love to have you join me there today as we kick off the series talking about how to find comfort in the early days! If you have any tried and true comfy tips, be sure to add them to the conversation over there! I look forward to hearing your tales!
If you’ve just clicked over here from The Better Mom: Welcome!! And thanks so much for stopping by! I can’t tell you how delighted I am to have you here! Please, make yourself at home and feel free to stay awhile and browse around!

They come far too few and far between. Moments of stark and complete clarity.
Moments when the mist thins and the things that seemed so crystal clear before, you now realize were smudged at best…completely distorted at worst.
I had one such moment recently while caring for our son through a bout of croup. I’m talking about it over at Pieces of Amy today. I’d love to have you join me there, and share your own moments of clarity!
If you’ve clicked over here from Pieces of Amy, I want to extend to you a warm Céad Míle Fáilte (A Hundred-thousand Welcomes)! I hope you’ll make yourself at home and stay awhile!
I’ve had more of those mornings than I care to recall. You know the ones. When everyone has woken up on the wrong side of the bed, and before breakfast is even consumed you realize your day already needs a restart.
On one of these mornings recently, I heard a Whisper in my heart to stop, take a deep breath, and start over.
I’m sharing the story at Intentional By Grace today, and I’d love to have you join me!
If you’ve just clicked over from Intentional By Grace, I bid you a fond hello! I hope you’ll make yourself at home, grab a cuppa and take a look around. I’m delighted that you’re here.
