Clean Eating: What is it, and How Do I Eat Clean with Kids?

Clean Eating: What is it, and How Do I Eat Clean with Kids?

You would do anything for your kids, wouldn’t you?  Of course you would.  I’ve found that motherhood has led me some places that I never thought I would go, all in the hunt for the best for my kids.

Giving Birth 3 Ways: Hospital Labor and Delivery

Three hour into my labor with my fourth baby, I was still in my shower.  As in, at home, in the master suite I share with my husband.  I was hibernating, and trying to put off going to the hospital for as long as possible. Why?  Because after giving birth twice and in a birthing center, I was really nervous about a hospital birth. Like, really, really, nervous.

Giving Birth 3 Ways: My Home Birth Story

Giving Birth 3 Ways: My Home Birth Story

I remember the first time I was pregnant.  I was 24, and while the idea of having an infant wasn’t worrying to me, the idea of labor and delivery was fairly terrifying.  The unknown was definitely looming large! When I finally went into labor, I remember being out in my neighborhood, walking the blocks because I didn’t know what else to do. Anyone relate?  If you’re expecting your first baby, I’m willing to bet you know exactly what I am…
