How We Night Weaned
A few weeks ago, my husband and I came to the realization that we have not slept through the entire night since before our oldest was born. This means that for the past 3.5 years, we have been waking up at the very LEAST one time per night. With my oldest child, right from birth, […]
A friend and I were talking about how Christmas time is so very different now that we are adults. She told me about how work is as stressful as ever, and the amount of work just to go on a vacation almost isn’t worth the vacation. And I told her about how hard it is […]

Community Over Competition
Yesterday was just one of those days where you laugh because you’re doing everything in your power to just get stuff done, but life has other things in mind. Just in the morning: I poured milk in my coffee mug and almost gave my toddler coffee in her soppy cup (I caught myself right before […]
The Happy Little Things
I have always kept a journal, even when I was really little and would start each entry with “Dear Diary” and proceed to write about whatever boy I had a crush on, or some big secret I just had to jot down. Anyway, I was flipping through an old journal the other day, and landed […]
Because Life Is Full Of Hills And Valleys

But now that I’ve had two babies who have gone through sleep regressions and teething and growth spurts and general “I don’t feel […]
Nicole Benedum has been a stay at home mom for the past 3 years. Before she took on this glorious (and sometimes not so glorious) role of "All Things Motherhood", she was a Human Resources Generalist. Her days were spent dealing with legal compliance, benefits, leave of absences and everything Human Resources related. Now her days are spent breastfeeding, changing diapers, conquering potty training, tantrums and sleepless nights.
She has two kiddos; a 2 year old toddler named Emily, and a baby boy named Owen. She met her husband, Sam, in college when they were both on the swim team, and they have been together ever since.
She is a huge breastfeeding advocate, gentle/crunchy parent (for the most part) and a former student athlete (water polo and swimming, woot woot!) both in high school and in college. At some point in the future she has dreams of going back to the gym and/or pool. For now she shall continue counting breastfeeding and holding a 35 pound toddler and 15 pound baby as her workouts.
