Mom Life

Sometimes, I think, what happened to my life?

You get to a point in adulthood when you decide (or you just take the leap and don’t think it through, in my case) to sacrifice your free time and sanity to start a family. You experience highs and lows like a junkie – from exhaustion to euphoria. And you go back for more! You forget about the risks and the long, sleepless nights.

License to Chill

Never in my life would I have thought I’d call having a baby liberating. For the first six months, I felt like a slave to my precious and helpless little infant as the primary source of liquid nourishment. And now that he’s a toddler and eats any food in sight (with only five teeth!) I still lament being stuck at home from 6 PM on – chained to the kitchen sink or the couch out of pure exhaustion from chasing and cleaning up after him.
