My New Normal

Before Cillian I worked in roles that were highly demanding - not life or death situations but definitely involved overtime, juggling multiple projects and organizational goals. Like most people in the workforce it seemed that the companies were always understaffed, which meant you were doing the job of three people. I tend to work well... Continue Reading →

182.5 Days

While I was pregnant I would often get comments from people letting me know that I will morph into a sleep zombie, my hygiene will resemble one of a teenage boy, my relationship with my partner will be flipped upside down and I can wave social activities bye-bye.

A Mom in a Sea of Moms

As you can gather from my previous posts, I am not a mummy mommy; the type of cookies that you will find in my house come in a box and that box is most likely empty because I ate them. While I love the idea of the hippy mom with her back to nature approach,... Continue Reading →

Breastfeeding

Before I had Cillian all I kept on hearing was the horror stories of birth and how breast is best, what a great experience breastfeeding is, it is such a special bond between mother and child, a fantastic way to lose the baby weight (a great benefit in my opinion), it is so convenient and...

The Birth

While my water broke on its own our child had second thoughts on entering the world and after being sent home to "relax" I was induced 18 hours later. With my charming and controlling personality and my partner wanting to make sure he had as many resources available to him we decided to hire a... Continue Reading →
