It's been a while...

So I started this blog with the best intentions. But like many things that get started by a busy working mom, my excitement fizzled about as soon as it started. I'm back and going to try to do better. Today's post isn't really about working at all, but it is a little bit about being a mama.

I've recently been turned onto the idea of reusable cloth menstrual pads. Yeah, I know what you're thinking, I thought it too. But here's the deal. They are awesome. Comfortable, discreet, and they work...really well. One of my fave WAHMs is doing a giveaway on her blog. You just need to comment on her blog with your favorite fabric that she has and you get entered. If you've ever wanted to try it, this could be an easy way to take the plunge.

Here's the link to her blog:

What a difference a year makes!

When I was packing my bags to go to work this morning I realized just how nice it was to only have 2 bags. When I first started back to work,Leah was 3 months old and I had to pack Leah's diaper bag for daycare, my lunch bag, my laptop bag, my purse, and my pump bag. When I picked everything up plus Leah's infant seat I looked like a pack horse. This morning I just had my laptop bag and my purse. I still look a bit like a pack animal once I pick up the bags and Leah, but at least I'm not out of breath by the time I make it to my car!

And because I can't resist....Leah at 2 weeks old and Leah at 12months and 2 weeks old.
