For Two Fitness: Look good While Exercising

When I was pregnant, one thing I didn’t do much of was exercise.  I came up with every excuse in the book, “I’m too tired”, “I’m getting too big”, “ I don’t have any clothes for exercising”. What a big fibber I was.  The truth was just that I didn’t feel like it.  However, if I would have known how cute I could have looked by exercising in For Two Fitness clothing, maybe things … [Read more...]

Motherhood: Do you Really Want to Know? #BumpMonth

If I had a crystal ball that could tell me everything I ever wanted to know about becoming a mother, I don’t think I would use it.  From my experiences, I have learned that it is best to not know everything ahead of time. Before I became a mom, I was a worrier.  I guess for as far back as I can remember I always have been.  However, my feelings of anxiety have never been greater … [Read more...]

Breastfeeding: The Best of Times or The Worst of Times?

Breastfeeding, I have found that talking about it is almost as bad as bringing up politics.  I have never understood why it is such a hot topic to address, but for some reason people in general have strong opinions on the topic. When I became pregnant, I was undecided on whether I would breastfeed or not.  If I am being honest, I was one of those  people that always felt … [Read more...]

Sickness: How do you Deal with the Yuckies?

This seems to have been a tougher season for colds than most.  Personally, my family has struggled with illness more this year than any season I can remember.  I had always heard when children start school it is almost impossible to keep them well, but I didn’t believe it until we started 2 day a week preschool with our son.  Now, I am a believer! I thought it might be helpful to … [Read more...]

Oh Gosh, I Really am a Mom!

If someone asked you when you first knew you were a mom, what would you say?  About a thousand things came to mind when I pondered my answer. I could give you the obvious answers, like the first time my baby moved inside me or the moment my child was laid into my arms after being born.  Those are probably the more truthful and accurate answers, but there are so many other “moments” as … [Read more...]
