Grocery Shopping Isn’t Hard Anymore

Last week, I went to three grocery stores to get food and household items for our four-person family. Three. Grocery shopping took up my whole Saturday morning, and you don’t even want to know how much I spent. Both of our girls have food allergies, which means I do my shopping at specialty grocery stores […]

Allergy-Friendly Valentine’s Day Treats

Hey guys, it’s me again: The Allergy Mom. Like all food-allergy parents, I breathed a big sigh of relief when we got through Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas without any reactions from my egg and dairy allergic daughters. Unfortunately, we’re not out of the woods yet. Valentine’s Day is approaching. Most people look forward to this […]

Getting Through a Toddler Rough Patch

This morning I was woken up at exactly 6:23 by my three-and-a-half-year-old daughter whisper-shouting “I need my bottom wiped!”  A month ago I would have found this slightly endearing, as only a mother could; I would have laughed, followed her into the bathroom, and dutifully wiped her bottom.

Is She Walking Yet?

When I found out I was having two girls almost exactly two years apart, I promised myself that I would do my best not to compare them. Growing up with a sister only 11-months older than me, I know first-hand the frustration that comes with constant comparison from parents, teachers, and even ex-boyfriends. I never […]

Today, I Should Have Been Fired

I should’ve been fired today. To start with, I woke up late because I’ve gotten in the habit of hitting the snooze button. My three-year-old is convinced that there’s monsters in her room, and likes to inform of us of their whereabouts every 2-3 hours throughout the night. This meant that I was five-snooze-buttons-tired, rather […]

Thank You Notes From a Mom

November is my favorite month for many reasons: my daughter’s birthday, Thanksgiving, and it’s finally socially acceptable to begin playing Christmas music. Of course, November is also the month for giving thanks and being grateful, which is why I’ve created this list of mom thank you notes, modeled after Jimmy Fallon’s hilarious thank you note […]
