Okay so April’s finally here and part of my resolutions have been um, let’s say resolved…
You may remember that as part of New Year’s I resolved not to buy Bunny any clothes until April.
That was tough and in all honesty I failed – and here’s where:
I bought Bunny 2 pair of pants [...]
So it’s been a rough few weeks at our house – we’ve all been slammed pretty hard with the flu / cold combo (I’m starting to forget a time when I could breath through my nose) and we lost one of our two cats.
Sabine was my first ever cat. I have a mother whose extremely allergic [...]
It’s been a while since I had the time and energy to sit and write for Blu E but that doesn’t mean I’m not writing in my head all the time! So much so; that there is a jumble of projects, ideas, internal dialogues and debates that I’ve been working on all threatening to come [...]
We recently got home from our trek to the parents a.k.a. grandparents over the holiday.

I have a few friends right now who are trying to conceive (TTC) and having less luck than they had anticipated. Their challenges are reminding me of our own rocky road to conceiving our Bunny. I know personally how hard it is to stay sane, calm and zen about trying to get [...]
I had to read it – the controversial book on Motherhood and Feminism – and now I have to tell you about it! Here’s my take on The Conflict.
One day she’ll be a teenager, she’ll come home and close her door and close me out. She’ll be frighteningly beautiful and condescending, she’ll wear the clothes she sneaks out of the house in her bag, and she’ll think she is smarter than her dad and me. She won’t want to talk to me or hug me [...]
There are so many things to say about the dads in my life; my husband’s, my daughter’s, and my own that this post leaves me feeling a little teary-eyed but I wanted to take a few minutes here to celebrate these men who have, and continue to, write on the essence of who I am.
