We all go through changes in our life, but rarely do we stop to think about how our body’s most intimate workings change. For menstruating folks, the changes we experience with our periods are sometimes rapid, sometimes gradual, but hardly ever consistent. If you are reading today as a non-menstruating individual, I bid you good day- as I’m sure you’re not needing to read my reflections. But if you are experiencing changes in your period related to gaining weight, having a baby, or perhaps facing health and physical ability issues- then I encourage you to read on.

Tips for potty training and a realistic look at “diaper free by two years old”
Now that my Littlest is out of diapers, I wanted to share my thoughts on “diaper free by two.” I’ll talk about how I’ve set flexible expectations, and changed my definition of the words “potty trained.” I like to tell people my son isn’t potty trained, but I am. Last summer we did the three day method, and packed away daytime diapers to begin potty training. But it doesn’t mean he does it all on his own and never has accidents, it just means I’ve changed the way I am managing his pee and poop from diapers to the potty.

I love reading birth stories. As another of 3 myself, I’ve experienced the joys and frustrations of birth three separate times and reading about other people’s experiences is always interesting to me. But I’ve noticed a disturbing trend in comment sections around the internet. I’m seeing a lot of negative comments about Birth Plans. You can sum up the majority of these comments as saying “Ha!
