Mummy Madness

I got married and had two children all in 3 years. My son, also my first child, was born with a health condition that required surgery and we spent our first 6 weeks of parenthood in a NICU at a children’s hospital. It was the most difficult time of my life. Even after he came home I struggled with anxiety, depression, fear and anger.

I began to realize that I had the ability to help others who were struggling with their journey in parenthood. As parents, we all have moments where we aren't sure what we are doing. I continue to write and share my experiences in hopes that I can help part the clouds for someone who is struggling.




The Evolution of Sleep

Sleep, or lack thereof, is the hardest thing to get used to after becoming a parent. At least it was something that I struggled with. Before I had my kids I needed a solid eight hours of sleep every single night. Uninterrupted, deep, quality sleep. Sleep, or lack thereof, was what I worried about the most when I was pregnant.

Chef’s Plate – a great meal planning tool

As the parent of three small children, I have been working under the assumption that easy to prepare meals were things like pasta dishes, slow cooker meals and breakfast for dinner. My whole meal repertoire has become very lazy in the last few years with my picky eaters, work/life imbalance, and just exhaustion. Before kids, I would spend hours pouring over cook books, carefully planning luxurious meals and spending loads of time just prepping....

Life with ‘Threenagers’

Okay, I had heard it from almost ALL of my friends: Whenever I would complain about the girls' attitudes when they turned two they just kept telling me, "Just wait until they turn three, it's even worse!" I honestly had some serious doubts about the validity to their comments. I mean, the 'terrible two's' were definitely REAL, how could it possibly get ANY WORSE? Well let me be the first to admit that I was wrong! The girls are just...
