When your husband offers to bring you a snack while you’re breastfeeding.
When your childless friends try to tell you how they’ll parent differently…
When you tell your kids to pick a different flavor than the crazy ice-cream with a million artificial colors in it… which displeases them…
When you stay strong through your child’s tantrum…
When someone tries to make you feel better about your rough day with the kids…
Grocery shopping with a toddler…… Keep Reading!!!
Well here’s a cool idea…
Turn your child’s writing or drawing into wearable pieces of art. There are some larger companies that do this, but the quality and material used seems to be a bit lower-end than some of the smaller shops that offer this service on Etsy.
(I want to get this done before my own boys get too big to think this is cool.)
Here are some of my favorites:

Okay sorry to bombard you guys with SO much breastfeeding news, but this is a fun one.
Chrissy Teigan has been really open about the fact that she and husband John Legend have struggled with infertility for quite awhile. The couple, who conceived via IVF treatments, welcomed a baby girl, Luna Simone, on April 14th.
The openness of the couple, along with Teigan’s bubbly online persona, made it even more of a delight to follow her as a … Keep Reading!!!
In 2010, Spencer and Whitney started blogging about their struggles with infertility and adoption. In 2010, they adopted their first son and in 2014 they welcomed their second son into their home.
Gabi Shull was just nine-years-old when she was diagnosed with cancer in her right knee. In order to save her life, doctors were left with no choice but to amputate her leg. They removed her knee and then reattached her foot backwards in order to give her the best chance of walking comfortably in a prosthetic.
The tiny dancer recovered, but she was left with a decreased ability to dance en point for her ballet classes. Things seemed hopeless on … Keep Reading!!!
I am going to get in the habit of these weekly wrap-ups because…
a. every blogger and their mother seems to do it.
b. I’m clearly a conformist.
So here are the weird things I read this week when I wasn’t sitting at Starbucks making frantic calls to people about funding for the water project in Ethiopia.
First up is very timely and slightly prophetic, since it deals with Starbucks AND water…frozen water to be exact.
Someone just filed a … Keep Reading!!!
Kid president is at it again with his adorable charm and wise words. He recently created a short for Mother’s Day about supporting mothers. He pointed out that in our society it’s common and somewhat accepted for mothers to shame their peers based on their parenting choices.
In his segment Kid president dons a ridiculous wig and reveals the character of a judgmental mother.
Hey everyone… I feel like I haven’t discussed some more personal things in awhile. I’ll use this post as a little update.
As you can see, I took off all of the third party ads on this site. I feel like I can breathe again… but more importantly, I feel like I want to write on here. I hope you guys feel equally less annoyed when you come this page.
In November I was in … Keep Reading!!!
Did you know that Walt Disney Productions was the first production company ever to use the word “vagina” on film?
With Disney-esque magic they teach how to avoid feeling sorry for yourself during your period (not going to happen), bathing as an acceptable practice during your period (which was slightly horrifying to hear that not bathing was a rumor being spread during that … Keep Reading!!!
Today would have been Audrey Hepburn’s 87th birthday, which seems pretty incredible given the fact that her image as a young woman still is one of the top telling images on merchandise, grossing multi-millions of dollars every year.
Most of millennials know the icon for her role in Breakfast at Tiffany’s as well as from other classic hollywood movies, but what most people don’t know was her strong desire to be a mother and her heart for humanitarian work.
The internet is once again in having a fit over another breastfeeding image.
Terry Richardson posted a photo of his girlfriend, Alexandra Bolotow, breastfeeding their twin sons as a tribute to the new mom on Mother’s Day.
The photo was a very raw shot, capturing the very relatable moments of the newborn stage. The image featured Bolotow nude and tandem breastfeeding her twins in bed. Any new mom can tell you this is a very normal depiction of breastfeeding and … Keep Reading!!!
I’ve been writing for I Am Not the Babysitter for a few months now and the one thing I’ve noticed is an overwhelming sense of community. Not everyone that follows the page takes the same approach to parenting or lifestyle choices but no one seems to bash anyone. It’s a wonderful concept but what happens when the topic of something other than parenting or breastfeeding comes up? I was inspired by the live Q & A with Dr. … Keep Reading!!!
