Elimination Communication Basics

I thought about doing a post about this when my oldest was a baby, but it really overwhelmed me. I thought I didn’t really know anything, it wasn’t until recently when I was talking with a friend with a new baby, that I realized I do know a few things.   My first encounter with Elimination Communication (EC), or potty,…

It’s Hip to be Obtuse?

Since becoming a mama I’ve noticed that I’m behind on many things. I’m not always completely sure of the latest fashions. I haven’t discovered any new music, and by the time I watch a “new” movie it’s already one or two years old. I’ve also realized that I don’t care. Those things don’t matter as much to me anymore. It’s…

dads do things differently

Recently I spent a few days in Las Vegas for a hair show. I was a hair model for a new friend for a hair competition. She won, well we did, I helped too but it was all her vision and she worked so hard. I had so much fun and got a chance to live my modeling dreams. When…

Motherhood is a river

Motherhood is like a river, a wild river, a long river, a changing river. At times it’s small and vulnerable. At times it’s over flowing- the water, the love, the milk. Always making a new path. Always nourishing. Feeding us, cleaning us, giving us everything freely. They are strong, they are wise within, they are calm, they are raging. Keep them…

Happy New Year!

I usually have the same resolutions every year, eat better and drink more water. So far this year I’ve been thinking about resolutions and my hopes for the new year. I want to be more specific with my hopes and try to follow through with my resolutions. A few of my hopes include:

I kept you for sentimental reasons and just because I deleted you to free myself and to…

What my dog has taught me…

My little doggy has definitely taught me a lot. She’s quite a character and she brings a lot love, laughs and shaking of heads. Overall I wouldn’t trade her for any other puppy. It’s nice to have her around and learn from her simple ways. I didn’t realize how much she has taught me until I started writing this post.…

the good earth

Watering the flowers and the garden is so good for me. It’s so nice to be outside before the sun heats everything up and it’s to have a few moments to think about whats been on my mind without being distracted. The flowers bring so much joy and when I water them I always think to myself that I should…

april birth from my perspective

Dannelle was referred to me through Christy. I was so glad she took a chance on me even though I had not attended a birth yet. At all of our prenatal appointments I felt that Dannelle and Bryce were so prepared. I was so glad to be her doula but a little worried I wouldn’t be able to do much…

don’t be jealous

It’s hard not to be jealous when you see such beautiful perfect people constantly. I have a hard time looking at blogs or my friends’ facebooks at times. I see perfect lives and I forget that no one is perfect and that I have a great life too. I should celebrate that I have a beautiful friend and not feel…
