Marriage. Fighting.

July 31, 2022
My husband and I are fighting so much right now.  It just completely escalated after Kesley was born. Things are stressful, we’re moving, not getting much sleep, work is crazy. But we’re in really rough shape. I’m so sad. Much love, -Elle

    July 20, 2022
    My brain right now is like a mess of toddlers trying to navigate a jungle gym - LOL.  So need to get a lot of feelings out! Health - After FINALLY kicking my post partum issues to the side - I get mastitis.  WTF.  So annoyed.  Good news, I caught it super early (Saturday), went…

  • Parenthood = 1; Elle = 0
    July 16, 2022
    I went back to work after my first round of maternity last week - and I'm not going to lie, I am getting my ass absolutely kicked. First of all, when it comes to weekends... which if any of you are parents, know those are tough anyway.  Lots of entertaining, constant whining, esp. since I…

  • Health Stress *Second Update*
    June 11, 2022
    *Sigh* - after 10 long weeks of struggles, I'm happy to report that my post-partum issues have finally come to a halt.  PRAISE.  BE. The pelvic ultrasound came back all clear, with the exception of some additional fluid still lingering around there.  Could have been a clot, part of the placenta, ...

  • Health Stress *Update*
    June 3, 2022
    Both Tarin (my son) and I went to our respective appointments today... HAPPY to report that we have a resolution for him!  Sad to report - it's surgery :( Light, non-invasive surgery.  But surgery none the less.  Really, really hard to hear that your 2 year old has to go under anesthesia and be c...

  • Health Stress.
    June 2, 2022
    9 weeks of post-partum hell. I really hope I get the answers I need tomorrow.  I'm going to a new OB/GYN - at my 6 week follow up with my first one "oh if these issues are still happening in a week, let's get you in for an ultrasound." *One week later* - still happening,…

  • Not feeling myself
    May 22, 2022
    I'm about 7 weeks post-partum and I'm feeling... just bleh. From a health perspective, to start - I still am having some post-birth complications (minor ones) which are just annoying.  This means I can't be as active as I'd like to be... which, I'm ready to get back to exercising and being health...

  • New mom of 2 + Baby Blues
    April 9, 2022
    I just gave birth last Saturday to my daughter and I truly could not be happier (even though she was 2 days past her due date!)  This is my second - my first one being a son, Tarin - who was born in May of 2020.  I know what you're thinking - close to Irish…

  • Just…frustrated. Need to vent.
    December 28, 2021
    Sometimes, I hate that I try to be superwoman with EVERYTHING.  And really there's only one person to be annoyed with this in that, and that's me. Today, my son (Tarin) who is 20 months old is sick.  He was up all night coughing, and had a fever.  Normally, he goes to daycare - and…

  • Tough weekend.
    October 11, 2021
    I am a relatively new-er Mom; officially being given the title in May 2020.  This makes my child 17 months. This weekend was hands down, the most challenging weekend/days/nights we've ever had with our little guy. I am certainly trying not to sound complain-y - in the midst of a lot of infant los...
