Home Sweet…Home? And More Series Fun…

Wow, has it really been a month since I’ve posted??

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your patience with me and sticking around while I’ve been so quiet!

Comfy Pregnancy SeriesWe arrived safe and sound in the States and promptly hit the ground running. We’ve not stopped traveling in some form or fashion in the 3.5 weeks we’ve been here! We just finished up a great time with my family taking our kiddos to Disneyland for the first time (you can bet there will be posts/pics about that coming up)! And now, we are in one place for a couple of weeks before we have to travel again, so hopefully – Lord willing – things will get a little more back to normal around here!

Starting today! 🙂

I’m delighted that the second post of the Comfy Pregnancy Series is up at The Better Mom today! Come on over and join us as we chat about how to get the comfiest sleep possible in pregnancy! Be sure to share your tried and true tips in the comments!

If you’ve just joined us from The Better Mom, I want to extend a warm, fresh-on-American-soil-from-Ireland welcome to you! Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to make yourself at home and have a look around! The kettle’s always on, even on this side of the pond. 😉

A Fun New Monthly Series!

If you’ve spent any time around here at all, then you probably know that hubs and I have three amazing kids. Two girls, ages 8 and 5, and a wacky lil’ man who is 2. I never would have made it through each pregnancy, delivery and early days without the amazing support, encouragement and advice from other mamas just a few steps ahead of me on this crazy road of motherhood.

Even now my mama friends are a huge source of support and encouragement to me – and I hope I am to them!

I do find it funny, however, that no matter how old my kids get – or their kids are – inevitably, given enough time and conversation the topic of our pregnancies rolls around. We all regale one another with the tales of our own experiences; even if we’ve all heard them before! It’s something that is so much a part of who we are – who we’ve become – that we just have to share it.

That’s why I’m so excited to announce my new monthly series over at The Better Mom:

Comfy Pregnancy Series

This four part series will look at the best, most effective tips and tricks for having the comfiest pregnancy possible, as well as taking you through to those tender first days and weeks. I’d love to have you join me there today as we kick off the series talking about how to find comfort in the early days! If you have any tried and true comfy tips, be sure to add them to the conversation over there! I look forward to hearing your tales!

If you’ve just clicked over here from The Better Mom: Welcome!! And thanks so much for stopping by! I can’t tell you how delighted I am to have you here! Please, make yourself at home and feel free to stay awhile and browse around!

Love at First Sight? What if you don’t bond with your baby?

When my first child was born back in 2005, I was ready. I had wanted a baby for a long time; I had spent my adolescence babysitting and working with children in all sorts of forums and formats; I had planned, read and thought about every aspect of my pregnancy, delivery, and the first days at home with baby. The excitement was compounded when we found out we were expecting a little girl (based on Hub’s family history, I expected us to have all boys). I was so very ready to welcome this little bundle of joy to our family!Baby Days

While the delivery went according to plan, afterwards things went awry. I didn’t bond with my baby right away, and I felt so guilty, and like the worst mother in the world. Join me over at One Fun Mom today as I talk about what to do if you don’t bond with your baby right away. This is part of a special Baby Days series celebrating and exploring Moms and Babies!
