Breastfed or Formula Fed, They’re Still Loved.

Can I just rant for a second? Am I allowed? It wasn’t until I had my second child 4 months ago that I realized just how hard it is when your baby has issues/refuses to breastfeed. With my first child, I breastfed her for quite a while with no issues however, this baby… it’s been a constant struggle and the colic didn’t help it. She’s now exclusively formula-fed after many trials and failures (yes, I tried everything and I’m now not able to…) and now, being on the other end of the feeding spectrum, I realize all the judgment and guilt out there. When I see people posting ‪#‎breastisbest‬ and whatever else they post… I can’t help but feel a little urked and annoyed by it.. as silly as it sounds and it’s only because, I wish that I could still breastfeed. It wasn’t until I couldn’t breastfeed that I realized how hard others have it when they can’t as well. I never really thought about it because it wasn’t ever something I had an issue with. I guess the point is… I’m sorry if I ever judged anyone for not breastfeeding, because I too, at one point would be THAT mom… who would try to convince you that you should try harder when you said you couldn’t.. and for that, I apologize.

DIY Halloween Jars

It’s hard to believe, but Halloween is creeping up. I have never been a fan, but my son is just starting to understand a little about it and he’s obsessed with pumpkins so I thought it would be a good year to get my feet wet with some easy Halloween Décor. Baby steps. Maybe next year I’ll tackle something a little more complicated, but for now I start with easy peasy.

How To Use The Emoji Keyboard On A Mac

My life has been forever changed. I just discovered how to use the emoji keyboard on a mac. I am a total emoji over-user. I say what I want to say half the time by using little hearts, smiley faces or food emojis. Now, I can do it when I’m not mobile. 😀🙌🌺❤️

Looking Back on Childhood Memories

Now that I am a mother of two adorable little girls, I often think about the memories I have from my childhood. I had an older sister and grew up in sunny California. Life was good and I always try to remember the traditions and things that I was excited about as a child.
