Where we’re at 21.02.16

This past week was so full and so empty of sleep, it all feels a little distant and full of blank spaces. But I feel like we need an update on where we’re at right now so you don’t all forget me! The next two weeks will be full of posts for you from My […]

Returning To Work, Teething & Sugar Withdrawals

“Going back” to work brought mixed feelings. It was tough leaving Charly, even if only for an hour and a half, and there was a lot more guilt than expected. The upside is, the guilt appeared because I really enjoyed my meeting; and the topics for the articles I need to write had me interested […]
