tjenamårs, baby! let’s get building!

It’s a well known fact that building a piece of ikea furniture is it’s own form of torture. It’s confusing even for the smartest of people, you pretty much always end up with an extra screw or two left over (where was THAT supposed to go?!), and makes you feel like an idiot when it takes 6 hours to build a two shelf bookcase. Did you know that you can actually hire someone to come and assemble your Ikea furniture for you? Sounds pretty incredible, right?! How nice would it be for someone else to take the stress & confusion…

Everybody has gas.

That being said, some babies are more prone to gas than others. If you’re little one is struggling to release that uncomfortable build-up, there are a bunch of ways to help lessen the excess bubbles. You can try: :: Burp for Longer: Go for 3-5 straight minutes, even if you’re not getting any bubbles out. Just keep going. Also, make sure you’re firmly patting baby. If your touch is too soft, it might not get the burp or toot out of baby. :: Tummy massage: Rub his belly (start at the left hip bone, with two fingers, apply light pressure…

TBT: That Time I was Pantsed at the Zoo

Here’s how it played out: It was a ridiculously hot day, I was on summer break from high school and, at the time, I was nannying for a stay-at-home dad. We decided to slather the kiddos with sunscreen, pop them in the car and head off to the zoo for the day. Sounds fun, right?! Well up to this point, it was. We checked out the Reptile House, ventured through Carnivore Kingdom, chirped our way through Bird Valley and jumped Monkey Junction. We we’re having a blast!  So much fun actually, that the littlest babe, who was only about 6…

Feeling the feely feels of feelings.

I’m not sure what the weather is like by you, but here it’s dreary and rainy out. I sometimes wonder if how I’m feeling effects the weather or if maybe the opposite it happening and the weather is changing my mood…or maybe there’s no connection between the two haha and I’m placing a significance on something that doesn’t exist. Who knows! It’s been one of those weeks though where I could swear that Mother Nature is taking her cues from what’s going on in my life and how I’m feeling. Because this week, we’ve had pelting rain, lovely sunshine, crazy wind,…

Enjoy the little moments.

It’s easy to wish it away. Whenever there is an exciting event in your future-whether it’s an upcoming 6-figure launch, an awesome concert on the weekend or a baby arriving in a few months- it can be easy to wish away the time. I know that I totally fall prey to this. It’s almost too easy to get caught up in the excitement or the busy-ness and then start living for the future or the weekend or whatever big thing is coming up next. I snap into that mode often when I peek at my calendar and see something fun…

In the rush to get things done for your biz & for your baby-to-be, life can get hectic and jammed.

The only thing that you need to do is give yourself permission to take all of the time & space that you need to accomplish your goal. That’s it! More often than not, when we…

Get a Nanny for your Biz.

I’m totally serious. As a savvy, pregnant entrepreneur, I’m sure you’ve thought about what you’re going to do for childcare when you transition back to work. Maybe daycare or a nanny. A live-in Au pair or help from Grandma. Whatever you choose, it just matters that you’ve thought about it and that you’re taking action to get support. Planning ahead makes all the difference. You know that someone needs to care for your little so you can focus on work. So let me ask you, have you researched and hired care for your biz? Because someone needs to care for…

Stop being such a control freak.

That’s right. I said it. It’s time to take a chill pill. If you’re like most of my awesome clients, you struggle with relinquishing control. You like to be the leader, the conductor, the wearer of all of the hats. This has probably worked for you in the past. Maybe it wasn’t always fun, I mean working nights & weekends rarely is, but it likely helped you to: Build your biz from the ground up. Make those sales. Get new clients. Catapult forward in your biz. Reach a new level of success. It got you to where you are today.…

I’m Better Than You Mother-in-Law.

Wait, wait, now hear me out before you get offended. I’m quite sure (or at least very hopeful) that your mother-in-law is wonderful. And, there is definitely a spot for her on your new mama Dream Team, if you’d like. But, there are also some very valid reasons to hire a New Parent Coach instead of just relying on family. {1} I’m an expert. I went to school to hone my expertise, I’ve been working with brand new parents since Day #1 of my career and I know all of the latest baby-related recommendations. This is my zone of genius.…

Grieving Something that was Never Yours.

It might seem silly to be upset over something that you never had. Who does that, right? Well, I do. :: When I was single and aching to find my soul mate, I grieved for the relationship that I didn’t have. :: When I was looking for the perfect job and it didn’t exist, I grieved for the opportunity that hadn’t presented itself. :: Last week, when our deal to buy a house was shattered the day of the closing, I grieved for the home that never even belonged to us. Whether it’s a house, a relationship, a pregnancy, a…
