Hey everyone! Sorry for these sporadic updates. I’ll get more consistent, I promise.
I have been so busy that I haven’t had a lot of time to spend at the computer and when I finally sit down to write something, I’ve been overwhelmed and don’t know where to begin.
But… I’ll try right now.
Also, excuse the typos or grammatical errors here…. I’ll never get this out if I don’t just write it and send it off immediately!

Recently, I announced over social media that I am looking for ethical companies to promote. The reason is simple enough: I am sick of sweat shops and I want to support small, ethical businesses. However, I have found it difficult to find affordable clothing, accessories, and household products that are ethically created.
During my initial search I found that these companies do exist, but they are just exhausting to find. That is why I want to provide a resource that … Keep Reading!!!
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:

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!!!
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!!!
If there’s one thing that technology hasn’t yet made easier, it’s finding healthcare practices you and your family can trust. From finding a pediatrician for your children to an optometrist for your spouse, online reviews aren’t quite up to speed. That makes them less than helpful. So when the time comes to start taking the kids to the dentist, what can you do? For many moms, finding the right dentist for the family isn’t an easy task, particularly when figuring … Keep Reading!!!
Cleaning your kitchen can be a tireless task. The moment it is all done it seems like it needs attention all over again. It can be one of those rooms that just get’s messy so quick. This is most likely down to it being a busy place where not only do you cook, but you congregate and meet as a family. So I thought I would share with you some DIY hacks for cleaning the kitchen quickly and effectively.
So many moms have had to continue working while raising their families, and for many there just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to get everything done. Between juggling rides to and from school, getting to work on time, fixing meals, keeping up with household chores, extracurricular activities and everything else that goes into being mom, there is little time left to even think about furthering their careers. However, there might just be a way to advance … Keep Reading!!!
