When we moved into our current apartment we bought a bunch of furniture from the people who we bought the place from, including the crib that both of our kids have slept in, and this gargantuous dining table that really had no business being in an apartment of this size. It was big and clunky…

Last week I did a photoshoot with local photographer – one of the moms from Niko’s daycare who I got talking to in the playground.  I wanted to get some more lifestyle content to pepper into my Instagram feed for when I talk about nutrition and wellness and whatever, just to add more personality. Total…

My baby turned one on Friday. Odie TKro, the boy with the controversial name.  Electric-haired, impervious to sleep training, wide-smiling, chin-biting, hug-thumping light of my life. What a wild ride the last year has been.  When I look back, the past 365 days has indeed been the longest shortest year. At times it seemed it…

I was walking through the bathroom when I felt the unmistakable squelch of poop squishing between my bare toes and yelled out “ughhhhhhh!” I always flush his turds down the toilet before rolling up used diapers and tossing them in…

I looked at my calendar the other day and realized that I’m down to the final weeks of my maternity leave (as it were) with Odin and now I’m all nostalgic for the present.  Part of me wishes that I’d slowed down a bit, snuggled more, been more social, watched more Netflix… but then I…

Today my big boy is exactly 3.5 years old and I seriously can not believe where the time is going.  I feel like I complain about him a lot here, and in reflecting about that I think it’s because those are the stories that are funny and relatable and are therefore the easiest to write…

Early Monday morning we had workers come in and turn our plumbing off. Bucket toilets were delivered. And thus began the final phase of our building’s pipe relining.  Also on Monday our contractor FINALLY sent someone over to finish the details in both bathrooms. Toilet paper roll holders were installed. Towel racks were installed. Shelves…

So, this past week was World Breastfeeding Week, and as such, my social feeds were filled with posts by women talking about how much they loved breastfeeding.   How they nursed their kids until they were 2, 3, and even 4 years old. How they persevered through early struggles with nursing, through low supplies and…
