Do you hear the crickets chirping?

Do you hear the crickets chirping? I do. It’s kind of a ghost town around here!

First, I’m sorry. Second, Let me tell you why.

(This is the excuse part)

One of my kids turned four a few weeks ago and another turned two a few days ago. Read all about my labor and natural childbirth experience at my Pregnancy and Baby Blog. I wrote about it because I was all kinds of emotional this past week.

Aside of family celebrations — both birthday and holidays — I’m mending sick kids, budgeting and buying holiday gifts for everyone and their mother, reworking school and childcare schedules and getting activities ready for a long winter break.

Oh, and I planned a much-needed girls trip to San Francisco in the middle of all the madness. As much as I enjoyed it, I won’t be traveling in December ever again.

It was pretty, crowded and cold!

(This is the legit part)

I’m now freelancing at a little big place called SheKnows.

You might have heard of it.

You want to hear a funny story? No? Well, I’ll tell you anyway.

I joined an online community with other women when I was pregnant with my first son. Groups were formed by due dates and we shared everything from what we ate (cake) to… other “personal” stories and experiences (I can’t believe I posted those for all to see… actually, I can). I was also part of a panel that was published in one of the ePregnancy magazines, which talked about, wait for it… natural childbirth options and choices. I was the uneducated mom-to-be that basically said, “What is a birthing tub?” Good times.


The co-founders of the site I now work for (SheKnows) created the site I joined 10+ years ago. How crazy is that? Talk about full circle. Well, I guess I’d have to co-own a part of the site for it to be full circle but you get my drift.

If you want to see where I’m hanging out*, feel free to click the links below.

And don’t forget about Momtastic and Baby Gizmo!

*I promise I’m not deserting you here and just know that I have a plan — mostly thanks to the awesome SITSgirls Blog Critique that was recently done for me.

A good way to read all my stuff is to like my Facebook page — Mommy Loves Coffee because I update that often.

Kiss, kiss, hug, hug and clink those coffee mugs!
